He's mentally ill, folks. I feel badly for the animals, but just as badly for him. He really did think he was 'saving' them.
He's in a mental health institution at the moment, and the animals are at a local rescue. They're trying to find all the owners, although it's slow going.
The reality of the situation is that you have a mentally ill person who thought he was doing good by the animals, since in his mind they were abandoned.
To physically attack someone who is not of sane mind doesn't say much about someone's ethics or their ability to have empathy.
Sure, what he did was awful. He's up on quite a few cruelty charges. But the fact remains that he's ill and needs help, not a baseball bat upside the head.
