So you agree that bullfighters should be made into shish-kebabs with skewers as well?
Maybe, in order to be a bullfighter, you should have to endure a painful rope around your testicles and getting jabbed at until your muscles don't work.
After you recover from that, you should be given the option of whether you want to be a matador.
I do oppose animal cruelty, even if it's a sport with hundreds of years of tradition behind it. Most countries ban cockfighting and dogfighting, right? Why is bullfighting allowed?
(The an$wer is that countrie$ that allow bullfighting have certain rea$on$ for refu$ing to ban it.)
If you need to kill an animal to eat it, kill it as painlessly and quickly as possible. If you need to do research on an animal, do it as painlessly as possible.

The kid was sent to a mental hospital. His family was murdered, and he bugged out(at least that's what I heard on the news)
You know, I've seen a few psychotic breaks in my life. In fact, I've seen a lot of psychiatric conditions because my training was pretty heavy on the psych stuff. People who are insane tend to lash out, but they do so suddenly, violently, and often without very much warning (word to the wise: if an obviously crazy person tells you to back off or he's going to hurt you, BACK OFF
. I learned this lesson the easy way, thankfully). A cat wrapped in duct tape sounds to me like something done by a cold, calculating mind. It lacks the explosive, spur-of-the-moment quality of a psychotic break. It's more of a serial killer's way of behaving than that of someone who "bugged out."
Something has to be very wrong with your sense of empathy to carefully wrap a cat in duct tape like the photo shows.
Now, without any further knowledge of the patient, I can't make any other judgment. But my educated guess is that he knew what he was doing when he taped that cat and put it in a plastic bag.
