>> But where? Why aren't there legitimate crime reports of this kind of thing? <<
Animals are suffering cruelty all the time.
The problem is that they sensationalise it by atrributing it to some kind of ritual abuse.
There are knife attacks on horses in fields (at least here) and all manner of other animal mutilations happening all too frequently.
There was a cat in my local paper just a couple of days ago that had its eyes stabbed out.
There are some twisted kids about who are influenced by far more by violent video games, gory films and theatrical heavy metal acts than they are by Satanism.
An excuse like Halloween is all these idiots need.
It doesn't matter that they are not Satanists. What is most important is that we guard our animals from these morons.
"u.v.ray is an uncompromising writer who glares at the world with bloodshot eyes. He gazes into the abyss and sees jewels of tragedy, comedy, cruelty, heroism, tenderness, darkness, grit and futility. We Are Glass is a searing collection of seventeen razor-sharp short stories; a very fine collection indeed." -- Paul D. Brazill. www.uvray.moonfruit.com
