Police treat pets badly

Email

Today, while walking my dogs, I saw a small Siamese kitten struck by a car. No, the driver didn't stop. A passerby called the police while assuring her two little boys the police would help. An officer arrived, located the not real concerned owner and said it was OK to put the kitten in a garbage bag and throw it away.

When I pointed out to the officer that the kitten was still alive and screaming, he said he wasn't going to discuss it. How utterly cruel of that officer as well as the owner. As I walked away I could still hear the animal screaming in pain. The mother explained to her sons that cops just don't care about animals especially cats; what a fine message for children. I hope that that officer isn't an example of our police department.
