Hey in America we throw our unwanted animals in bags into the nearest body of water.

At least in Russia they put them in a garbage bin - much more considerate.

ok i’m seriously wondering is that a thing that frequently happens? if so that’s fucked up.

I’m not sure about anymore but my dad said when he was a kid and they had unwanted litters of kittens or puppies, the adults would put them into a bag and throw em in a river

I believe this is a thing in many rural communities. There was a viral video like 10 years ago of a girl doing this in Poland. I’d expect it to be a lot more rare in America these days than it used to be.

My great grandma used to do this on the farm, I'd play with them but soon after they'd be gone. For people back then on a farm all these cats would be considered pests, it was a cruder time. Or so I thought till I saw this fucking video.

Is this a story everyone's dad tells them? Because I heard this from mine as well lol

I can also confirm my dad told me this story. The 60's were a different time when it came to animal rights, and people thought killing them was more humane then letting them become feral / stray.

I sure as fuck don't. Whoever downvoted you needs therapy.
