"People dump their pets because they dig holes in the yard, go in the house, damage furniture or become inconvenient. Of course, children do that, but it's illegal to dump them, although, I imagine, some parents would like to. But with pets it's not looked upon as a major crime. Those that don't starve to death must learn to hunt to survive. Cats will survive on insects, birds and small rodents. Dogs will form packs, and with the new state law, county auditors are responsible for paying for livestock kills ... that's our tax dollars going to waste.
I would also like to remind you that it is a proven fact that people who commit cruelty to animals will eventually harm people. Therefore, one can assume that people who dump their pets are most likely being cruel in some way to their children. Think about that next time you see or know of someone dumping a pet, and report them to the authorities.
