Just unbelievable....I wrote my letters yesterday - hope the sons of B*****'s get locked up for a long time after they are dragged behind a truck for awhile.

Sadly this is too humanlike. No other animal would do this, even chimps, so it leads to the question, is man's inhumanity to others what makes us human?

Tragic.....every time I read one of these stories I feel so sad and angry at the same time. And I wonder what they get out of it, what kind of pleasure or satisfaction?? What is the purpose, what do they get, or gain? Ya just want to scream..WHY? WHY? Because there is no point to it, nothing is achieved, other than the act of cruelty. And is that all they want, just to be cruel people, to wear a badge that says cruel monster....I just dunno..

Too disturbing for words... I don't even know what to say. My heart goes out to the family and to Buddy's pal, Max. This story brought tears to my eyes and has left me wondering what the word "human" actually stands for. Peace.

How very sad indeed. We love both our dogs and both our cats like they are "real" people is our family. I'm so very sorry about Buddy. Hope the courts agree to drag the disgusting excuse for a human being behind my truck as punishment!!!

I have shed many tears for Buddy; I hope justice will be served for him and all who loves him. Rest In Peace Buddy.

Heart braking story. Maximum penalty for the crime as justice for Buddy. Pulling those involved a few cycles
behind truck seems good idea.

I am just heartsick. How in the name of God can anyone be so cruel? I truely can not comprehend such acts of shear madness. My heart goes out to the family. I am so sorry for their loss. Words can't begin to say anything to make them feel any better, nor give any comfort. Only time can heal this wound. I beg the courts to give the sorry son(s) of b+++++(s) the maximum penalty. If it were up to me I would beat the jerk(s) half to death then drag him/them behind my truck until he/they died. And that was if I was in a good mood.

Stories like this one makes me believe in the saying "AN EYE FOR AN EYE & A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH"
