Andi Elliott: How Do You Live With Yourself?

April 16th, 2011 by Halli

By Andi Elliott

I don’t understand the apathy of people. My parents taught us compassion and to help those who were unable to help themselves. Therefore it’s unfathomable that folks would watch as their neighbor’s animals suffer or starve and do absolutely nothing.

Three times in two months, I have been called out on animal cruelty cases in the Roberts area. All involved horses that had been allowed to near starve or actually did starve to death.

Imagine for a moment, the suffering that the animal has endured? Think of the constant hunger, the searching for any scrap of edible substance, and then in desperation it begins to eat its own feces or wood or anything else within their reach in a desperate attempt to live. As their body mass wastes away and never-ending hungering increases, the cold and wind takes its toll on what little life is left in the animal. No longer able to stand and with head hanging low, it falls to ground, knowing it will never rise. But the suffering continues. There it lies in the mud and its own feces while the remaining life ebbs out of their body…prolonging the agony until the bitter end.

Only lowlifes would allow a helpless creature to suffer and die such a horrible death. I question the character of the neighbors and passersby who have watched the excruciating suffering. How do you sleep at night? What example have you set for your children? How do you live with yourself? I wonder how.
