Bologna. The company came to the man who did it, knowing he was in some financial trouble, and offered him good money to do it and be quiet about it.

The man outed the company because he hasn't been able to sleep properly since due to the horrific memory.

I have no sympathy for the man, but it is the company that did it - and used someone's poor circumstance to get it done.

It makes me absolutely sick that this happened, and especially that it happened 2 hours from my house.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

There is nothing wrong with shooting something to kill it.
Shelters put down vast quantities of healthy animals every day.

Is this sad. Yes. But it is not 'what mean and horrible people'.

I read about it in the paper too. It is very sad and sickening. But there is kind of a difference. Shelters try their best to home every pet they can. This was just cruel. And they don't shoot them or slit their throats. They HUMANLY put them down.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
