Residents in the small town of Hinckley, Utah are speaking out against the city's animal control policy. The mayor of Hinckley says after strays are held for 72 hours, they are shot. Critics call it an archaic and cruel form of animal control.

Noted, signed, tweeted and shared. This is so cruel, so inhumane. All to save a few dollars, they would treat loving animals like this? I find it sick and disgusting! There are other ways to trim a budget than put a policy of cruelty towards animals in place. Whoever came up with this idea has risen to their level of incompetency and needs to STEP DOWN! Or be PULLED DOWN! Get rid of the warped mind or minds that thought THIS was a good idea! Thank you Cher!

Signed. What a miser. He gives the poor animals just 72 hours to be found a home! That's cruel and unreasonable.

Utah again.

If some terrorist sprayed the place with HIV virus (so as not to harm non-human animals, plants, or the environemnt), I would send him/her a Green Star.

Cher, thanks so much for letting us know about the town of Hinkley's way of dealing with stray animals. This place doesn't even sound civilized--and I simply can't believe they excuse what they're doing as acceptable. It's time for this Utah mayor to be impeached and for this town to get a civilized representative!

N'd and Signed #941. Thanks Cher. Comment left....UNEXCEPABLE!! STOP THIS NOW!! Stop, killing our co-inhabitants on this earth, they are just as entitled to be here as you think you are! They did not asked to disregarded by humans, to not have anywhere to call home, to eat, too sleep, and they for sure did not ask to be killed by the same human species that disregarded them in the first place, to kill them so cruely.........enough of this we deserve to live and nothing else does, distorted superiority complex!
