Some cool animal cruelty images:
highway to hell

They transported these turkeys partly plucked in an open van across the freezing highways of Michigan. When we passed it, feathers flew out across our windshield. This photo was taken at a rest stop a few minutes later.
Henry was tortured

This is Henry. He is a victim of animal abuse.
I got to meet him today at the Utah State Capitol where lawmakers will met in a special session to consider a measure that would to make animal cruelty a felony in Utah. (It is currently a misdemeanor. 43 other states consider animal cruelty a felony, but not Utah.)
On April 26, 2006, Marc Vincent chased Henry with a leaf blower damaging his left eye irreparably. On May 25 2006, he put Henry in a 200 degree oven for five minutes severely burning the dog's paws and chest. The torture that Henry endured left him scarred and his front toes fused together.
