Police have arrested 10 young people on suspicion of beating a cat to death with two wooden rods in Siu Sai Wan. A female cat was found dead in a drain when police arrived. They arrested 10 youths aged between 14 and 25and a 13-year-old girl. They were arrested for cruelty to animals. The offence carries a maximum penalty of three years’ imprisonment and $20000 fine.
After hearing such animal abuse case, I wonder why they could be so cruel to the cat. I think the cat was very poor and innocent. I think those offenders are very inhuman and they acted like barbarians. We all are educated. We know that animals also have their rights. Animals also have the right of living. Human beings are not superior than animals. So, apart from not hurting them, we should show our respect to them.
I really think that those offenders were very brutal. I hope that judges will judge them wrong and give them give them a lesson on violating the law.
