Abused Animal Photo of the Day










"Rarrat with Animal Control says it looks like someone used a nail gun.
Miraculously, the cat they are now calling "Grace," seems to be doing fine.
It was purring when officers found it.
"It's the worst case of animal torture officials in northwest Iowa have ever seen.
Sioux City Animal Control officers received a tip Wednesday and picked up a female Calico cat with a nail had been driven into its skull.
Grace underwent surgery at a local veterinarian clinic Friday and is said to be doing well. Veterinarians at Siouxland Animal Hospital say the prognosis for Grace is good. She was purring and eating shortly after her surgery.
They say if the nail had hit just a millimeter or two in another direction the cat might not have made it.
It's unknown where the cat came from, but authorities are asking for any information to help them track down who is responsible. Animal control says they've received a few tips about who may have done this to Grace, but they are still investigating.
Grace will be kept at the animal hospital for the next week or so while doctors monitor her condition. Animal control is taking donations to care for the cat. When Grace is better she will be put up for adoption." Article


Mississippi Farm Bureau doesn't think crimes such as this should be first-offense felonies. Earlier post


Oh, and lets not forget this part since someone at Farm Bureau might think I'm trying to sell insurance on this website:
The use of Mississippi Farm Bureau's name and logo in this post is for criticism of MFB policies and additional commentary. Such a use is deemed fair use under the following statute:

"(d) The following shall not be actionable under this section:
1) Any fair use, including a nominative or descriptive fair use, or facilitation of such fair use, of a famous mark by another person other than as a designation of source for the person's own goods or services, including use in connection with:
(B) Identifying and parodying, criticizing, or commenting upon the famous mark owner or the goods or services of the famous mark owner;
(2) Noncommercial use of the mark; and
(3) All forms of news reporting and news commentary
."

In a rational world we would be shooting nails into the foreheads of people who shoot nails into kitties' foreheads.

Sorry KF but the Supertalkers like JT and Knave see that as a minor offense. You don't know. The cat could have threatened its owners or mauled a wayward child in the neighborhood so it is the owner's prerogative to teach the cat a lesson up to, and including, death by nailgun.

Them Supertalkers have got their fingers on the pulse of the people in Mississippi and I think they know a far bit more than you the lonely King Cav owner in Jacktown.

What are you talking about? Haven't heard those two in a long time.

KaptKangaroo said...

I say kudos for keeping these abusers in the mainstream consciousness. The mainstream or *cough* paid for media tries to attack but always falls short. C'mon FB you got
to do better than that.

Boy Howdy said...

Well KF, if you haven't heard JT and Knave carry the water for Waide then you ought to listen.

Because not only have they taken outrageous stances in opposition to the animal abuse legislation of last session but they have taken a number of swipes at you and your blog. Believe me, there could be no one else they are attacking but you.

I should note that I don't control the radio station selection in my workplace. I have to listen to JT and Knave every business day. The Boss is the Boss.

The upside is that the Boss is not gay.

Kingfish said...

Next time they are taking shots at me shoot me an email.

Where is a copy of the proposed legislation? I never read it. I am not sure I support this, but I want to read it first.

Kingfish said...

See my earlier posts on this. enter Farm bureau or animal cruelty in the search box.

Thanks.

JT and Dave are some of the most annoying people. In fact, most of the personalities at the radio station are annoying and very biased. But I guess that is what their target audience loves.

The bill was S.B. 2623. And I believe there is a plan in place to address these idiots for the upcoming legislative session.

We need a REAL Talk Radio in Jackson...The JT and Dave Show is not real talk radio. sam_in_ms

WoW. Farm Bureau actually supports this kind of cruelty towards animals. I'll never buy insurance from them. Thanks for the heads up kingfish

I got the voice if anyone wants to back a show. Always wanted to do radio.

Keep up the good work KF! I totally agree with the commentor below.

Did somebody who works at farm bureau do this ? I am 7 yes old and I think it is horrible that a farmer insurance would hurt this kitten .

just getting started said...

Anyone who could do this to an innocent animal needs to serve time before they end up hurting somebody. Research shows that 70% who abuse an animal go on to commit other crimes with 44% of them committing violent acts against people! I would think those who currently don't support this law would quickly change their mind if one of their family or friends was murdered at the hands of someone who started by torturing animals. This needs to be stopped before they escalate to such violence. Look at the innocent victims Luke Woodham in Pearl, MS killed after burning his dog Sparkle and stating it was shear beauty watching this innocent family pet burn! Wake up people!

I hate to pile on the poor little perverts who get off torturing kitties but the truth is it is just a matter of time before they do it to people. Plainly the solution is to identify them early (prosecute them), brand them (with a felony), and keep a close watch on them (through mdoc followup to incarceration).

Kingfish said...

No one at MFB did this. And MFB does not sanction animal cruelty. What they are opposed to is making animal cruelty offenses a first offense felony.

8:51 if you are going to pretend to be 7, you should know a bit more about 7 year olds.
Should you be that rare 7 year old genius whose IQ would exceed 160, you should not be on this website and need better adult supervision. Go out and play.

To: 8:51 I am 7 yrs old and I can internet better than a 70 yr old. I dont know my IQ but it is probably higher than yours.

my mommie tell me internet not good. it scare me

ChevyF16 said...

Thx for highlighting this KF. MFB may not sanction malicious acts of cruelty to domesticated dogs and cats, but the fact that they fight and lobby so hard against such a needed and reasonable piece of legislation, comes da#n close. BTW, they are not opposed to the current first offense felony law for cruelty to chicken and cows, just domesticated dogs and cats. GMAFB.

This the 7 yr old .....

I don't think the farmer company wants anybody to hurt pets , I think they are worried about people hurting farmers.

KaptKangaroo said...

DNFTT....Nice try David. This is pretty low. Impersonating a child. Really. I guess we know the lengths some will go to to alleviate their conscious of bad decisions.

KaptKangaroo said...

Anybody notice the Counties are now taking control of this issue and providing JAIL TIME of 90 days and Fines up to $1K? This is being driven by those on the front line who see the abuse that FB would have you believe, given their support, warrants a $25 fine and a slap on the back.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
