Just shows what they think of animals What a horrible death for them to just starve If that was me i would be going back with a hammer knocking the bricks or whatever down when it was dark I could not leave them there
Again its all about money and loss of time if they search for them So sad

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.
