If it was a human left in a sack next to humans locked in a cage so small they couldn't turn around would things be different?
Those animals DEPEND on a HUMAN to care for them, you have all failed them.

well, i think humans are different than animals, but animals still have feelings and needs and this is just wrong, they should have never been given the animals back.

I totally agree with both of the previous posters! Animal neglect is sad and just wrong! Hope justice is served!

It is- yes, humans and animals are different, does that even need to be said? Interestingly enough, we allow the weakest members of our society to depend on animals for their care. How often are animals used to care for sick, those afflicted with different ailments from seizures to cancer, autism and even diabetes? We also rely on animals to search for criminals to keep our human counterparts safe, many have been saved by an alert animal who woke us to a catastrophic fire, and we have been warned of intruders o our homes- we ultimately intrust our human lives to those of the four legged variety.

So do they not deserve the simplest of things like food, warm shelter, and love? Those who walk in to pet ownership should only be doing so if they are willing to commit to their pets, when that commitment is not met the animal deserves a forever home that will make up for the failed attempt- they don't deserve to rot in a bag, tied to a cage. It would be psychologically damaging for a human under such circumstances, why would one think it wouldn't be for a dog to smell the rotting corpse of his litter mate or friend?

My comparison was such, I hope I made it clear.
