People who abandon animals should be beaten.
People who abandon pets in a rural area in winter should be stripped naked and left in an area miles from anywhere in winter weather to fend for themselves with no supplies.Let us see how they like it.
It is a cruel thing to abandon a domesticated animal in the wild. Crueller yet to do so in winter.
Would that the punishment could fit the offense.
When you choose to take a pet you commit to taking care of it for its lifetime.
Or don’t bother.
