Horse shooting

Well, it’s official. I’m ashamed to be part of the human race. Since living with Ethan’s brother, I occasionally walk into the living room and am forced to witness the evening news, which he watches… Today I had the unfortunate experience of having to hear that someone (for no known reason) shot two horses in the face. IN THE FACE! This is not a fatal blow to a horse. It is just insufferably cruel. The owner was describing how she found her two horses, and it was enough to make me feel like throwing up, and crying. It also makes me hope that the person responsible is brutalized before they are safely in police custody.

I choose not to watch the news for a reason. I also try to avoid any stories in the online news that make me feel this way. Humanity is just too gross to have to read about every day. To think there are some people who think that we aren’t animals. Maybe they’re right… most animals don’t go around mutilating each other for fun.
