a couple of alcohol related stories from the weekend
the first wasn’t too bad
At the Rider game on Saturday and yes the beers were flowing for the section above us. Litter and debris were thrown down and security got involved resulting in an ejection from Mosaic stadium. Props to the stadium security for handling it with professionalism. Some people should not drink in public
the other instance broke my heart and yes angered me
Out of Craven comes a story of animal abuse. Seems a reveler had a too much to drink (not an excuse by any stretch) and proceeded to douse a kitten in alcohol and TRIED TO SET IT ON FIRE. That individual while not being charged was ejected from the grounds. Now while details of this event are not being released or at least i haven’t heard anymore, it more than saddens me to hear of such an incident.
It’s no secret that i am an animal lover. this type of incident at first shocks and saddens me. Then it gets me angry but now I’m more than concerned that this individual is out there somewhere. scary because they could be your next door neighbor or your co-worker…well at least i hope it isn’t. I’m not going to pontificate about what should have been done or what can be done to prevent it from it happening again…some people should know when to say enough is enough
the Kitten by the way is ok and will go on to live a healthy life. Wonder if it needs a foster home? : )
charges of animal cruelty have been brought against a person and younger individual. Still no names have been released
