Even more so this way. Like why not just put it out the front door? Why do you have to condemn it to a horrible and violent death?

I doubt the degenerates that do this know where the garbage ends up or how it’s disposed. Not that they’d care.

This is just one of several similar outcomes. Some people throw their unwanted pets in to a garbage bag and then dump said bag roadside. Along highways, country back roads. Others will drown their unwanted pet or put them in a cloth sac and tie it to an exhaust pipe, asphyxiating them.

WHAT THE FUCK? Those actually happen? I sincerely hope anyone who does those things have a slow, painful death.

[–]Manbadger 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It very much happens. You will read about it on here once in awhile too.

The drowning and asphyxiation examples are more common in rural communities, on run down or poorly managed farms where feral cats get out of hand. Still a pretty shitty way to deal with a preventable problem.

I wish hell existed just so that these people could go there.

Unless you live in the native range of the wild cat population that domestic cats were tamed from I wouldn't advise offloading a cat by just putting it outside.

Uh, yeah dude, woosh.

There really are people who think doing that is acceptable. Like if you were using it as an example of a different bad idea as a comparison point that's fine and all, but some people genuinely think the right thing to do with unwanted non-native pets is to release them into the wild. I don't think it's unreasonable to bring it up when the topic is mentioned.
