The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Boy rapes pet

I just have to ask... did anyone else read this? I mean, where the heck where the parents in all of this? I can't seriously believe that a neighbor was able to notice that there was 'animal abuse' in the home, but that the supposed 'parents' that lived in the home didn't.

A 14-year-old Utah boy has been charged with bestiality and lewdness for allegedly raping a dog, according to local affiliate FOX 13.

If convicted, the teen could face up to one year in jail and a fine of $2,500 under state law, which classifies cruelty to animals as a misdemeanor offense.

FOX 13 spoke with Cheryl Smith, executive director of the Utah Animal Adoption Center, about the case. She urged lawmakers to pass stricter laws against people who intentionally harm animals.

What on earth is wrong with these people? I just don't get what could be so wrong with a 14 year old that he would rape anyone- including an animal.
