IRELAND, THE LAND OF A THOUSAND WELCOMES, SHAME ON US .

 

Another foal beaten with bats by rampant teenagers for sport, in a Limerick estate.  Two family kittens, thrown into dense briars to die in Mayo. A greyhound tied tightly to a fence after giving birth to her pups in Roscommon. The continual slaughter and funding of greyhounds at track meetings. Daily reports of wandering horses in green areas of estates, subjected to terrorism inflicted by out-of-control youths. Rescue and animal welfare at a breaking point. Young ponies being driven to death attached to sulkies.All in the name of sport. While there are several stories of the Garda Siochana attending such scenes, there are also many reports of them refusing to do so, citing "not our responsibility." There are many studies for Justice departments to peruse, detailing the correlation between violent offenders and animal abuse. Why are we not looking at this to prevent violent crime at a later stage towards people, our elderly, isolated, vunerable. Enough is enough, it sickens the ordinary person daily to hear about this abuse in the media, and that the perpetrators are not being brought to justice. This horrendous abuse cycle needs to be broken, by prosecution , sentencing and re-education Empathy training and skills.  Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
