Observation: Had she shot a human, she would not have faced anywhere as much hate or attention on the social media or traditional media. I don't know about you, but I have noticed that pet lovers are just plain vicious when they feel that animal cruelty is involved (shoot, what this lady did was horrible and I love my cat). I am certain there are gazillion death threats against her, and she is pretty much guaranteed to have a mental breakdown at some point soon.

Meanwhile, no one gives a poop about innocent kids dying all over the Third World countries from starvation, war, diseases, etc. for example - no outrage.

Now, if she shot a person running away instead, City-Data forums posters (and certain cable news outlet, radio talk show hosts, and a national organization led by a French sounding name) would award her a medal.

Resulting from a fine example of straw man arguments.

No one is killing those children in third world countries, they're just dying. Killing a house pet for fun is so appalling because animals are innocent. If she had killed a child by shooting it in the head with an arrow the outrage would have been many magnitudes more severe. There probably would have still been a few yahoos here defending her though. Especially if it were a black child.

It was an elderly neighbor's indoor cat that got out of the house for a day. She shot it for fun.



Dude, shut up. Seriously. There is no cat hunting in Texas and that cat posed no danger to anyone. The fact that it was shot in the back of the head and that she isn't harmed at all proves that. She's just an a-hole who shot a house pet for fun. She even blogged previously about how much she enjoys killing animals.
I don't have any pets and if I did I wouldn't let them wander about the neighborhood, especially if I lived in Texas where many people have guns and weapons. We don't know anything about the cat other than a vet believed it to be feral. The owners should have taken care of it. If someone left a bag of leaves on her property and she used it for bow practice no one would have an issue.

I'm sorry, but if she had shot a human and then posted a picture of herself displaying the body with an arrow through it's head, and saying something like "the only good homeless person is one with an arrow through its head" (extrapolating here, equating "feral cat" with "homeless person") then she would be imprisoned without bail.

Your post makes no sense.

So sociopaths being sociopaths is justification enough for sociopathic behavior?

Yes we do. Stop lying. It was an elderly neighbor's cat that got out the day before. And any vet who can't tell the difference between an owned cat and a feral cat is an absolute **** up.

I don't even know what that means. Are you saying someone's pet, that they love, is the same as a discarded bag of leaves? Are you really so harebrained and heartless?

Actually, bats are responsible for the largest number of animal to human rabies transmission. Dog transmission is responsible for the most human rabies deaths.
