Inciting animal anger
Letter to the editor from Kiley Blackman

Tuckahoe, N.Y.: The
psycho who beat raccoons with a nail-studded board should have kept his
cat safe indoors, and not viciously attacked innocent beings. The media,
too, takes at least partial responsibility for his violent, terrible
act, since it unrelentingly refers to all wildlife with the most unkind,
disrespectful terms, as though they have no right to even exist on this
earth — when the fact is they were here before us. People cause far more
damage to the planet than any animal ever could.
