    Who's the animal!!
    The sad part of this story is that these same animals would have probably laid down their lives to protect their masters from some kind of harm and they are treated like some piece of old cast of machinery or furniture. Really makes you wonder just who is the animal here and do they deserve any humane treatment!!
