Oct 12th 2007 6:05AM i was born in africa and i still live here now. true, some live in appaling conditions and are starving, but does that make animal abuse justified? i think it's even worse when people that are badly off (such as as africans) abuse animals - because they should know what it feels like to suffer! every time i see someone beating his dog or donkey i want to go over and beat him back. we may be poor, but we are probably even less sympathetic.
ps. the amount of people that simply dump their babies into dustbins instead of giving them to orphanages is very scary. rape and domestic violence is also very high. how can we expect first world countries to care about us and give us food and support when we behave like this?
