  1. Maybe the man was raised in an environment where he thinks this is normal. I am guessing that he was raised by mentally ill family members, and he is also mentally ill. No other way to explain his gross maladaptive behaviors towards other living beings.
    Very saddening to have animals victimized by cruel people.
    Man is in need of intensive rehabilitation in a locked facility.
