On Jan 20 there were two articles about the brutal killing of four bald eagles shot to death in Washington state.

Then there was the story of the orphaned rhino hacked when she tried to return to her mother who was killed for her horns.
What a horrible thing that's taking place to rhinos in South Africa by poachers.

I just cannot imagine how cold-hearted people get their kicks out of making an animal suffer. I can only hope that their day will come.

I feel nothing but disgust and anger for these so-called humans who create a total hell for animals. I can only hope there is a special kind of hell waiting for them. They deserve it!

It just breaks my heart to know animals suffer in silence because of people who are heartless.

There is something wrong with people who take the rhino horns thinking they have medical benefits. They could care less about the animal suffering. People can be very selfish, and to heck with animals.

I feel nothing for cold-hearted animal abusers. Never did, and never will.
I guess a miracle needs to happen to wake these kind of people up.

I hope they find those who shot and killed the eagles. I hope war is declared on those poachers so those rhinos can live in peace. I have nothing but bad to say about animals abusers no matter where they exist.
