May 9th 2007 5:04PM In countries like the United States, and especially for city-dwellers like myself, we're quite accustommed to having animal cruelty tucked away from us (though the PETA folks do try to bring it to our attention, - http://www.PETAtv.com). It's quite sad to see how animals are treated or their conditions when you're traveling.
I was recently in Mexico and seeing the many stray dogs - some had wounds and some looked very skinny - really struck me. And the saddest thing was, there wasn't much that I could do, except petting a few of them and giving them some comforting words.
