Some people shouldn’t be allowed to have the privilege of owning a pet. The Animal Welfare Society often refers to them as pet bullies who appear completely unaffected by an animal’s pain and suffering.

“In our opinion, it is them who belong behind bars, not their vulnerable pets who cringe and hide from these wicked people. We recently had the misfortune of meeting a pet owner from Ottery who more than amply fits this description,” says the Animal Welfare Society of SA.
A 4-year-old guinea pig named Popple was so badly neglected that she could barely walk due to overgrown toenails and a gapping necrotic hole in her belly.
She was petrified of him and appeared to glare back at her tormentor from the safety of the Animal Welfare Society of SA’s nursing assistant’s gentle clasp, which made for one of the most pitiful sights they have seen in a long time.
The tense atmosphere was made that much worse by the negative attitude and degree of the indifference of her owner, who casually shrugged off the fact that he had caused her so much unnecessary pain and suffering.
“His demeanour helped to paint the grim picture of her tortured short life that had to be mercifully ended as we started the painstaking task of compiling our cruelty docket against this despicable individual who should never be allowed to own any pets ever again,” concludes the Animal Welfare Society of SA.
