The recent beating death of a Chihuahua mix calls for swift and legal action on the part of the district attorney and the community.
It is appalling that this cruel and unnecessary behavior occurs in our community. Whenever anyone attacks or physically abuses another living being more vulnerable than him, it speaks to the very moral weakness of the abuser or predator. There is nothing to stop him from doing it again and again.
The community has greater concern as those who abuse animals are frequently the type who will abuse people weaker than them.
I am appealing to the district attorney to prosecute this case, to send the message that Merced County will protect all living creatures and ensure the safety of the community with compassionate judicial results to end cruel and inhumane treatment of animals.
You have the jurisdiction, Larry Morse. Please, for the sake of those who cannot speak, speak for them.
