It is not tit-for-tat and one cannot compare apples to oranges, but we who live in the Bay Area are simply aghast at mis-guided passions. To me, it is akin to the PETA people spending all their time and energy against the production of foie gras, a product consumed by the minority where mere hundreds of ducks "suffer" yet they ignore the tens of thousands of chickens being abused in production of Foster Farms products.
It is simply a matter of perspective and what is more important to each individual.
This is not a misguided passion. And I think folks who think this is getting too much coverage are missing the point.
Two CHILDREN tortured and maimed a DEFENSELESS , innocent creature. These children are clearly sick and yes, they should shout this story to the rooftops.
A poor kitten today, maybe someon's child tomorrow.
Look at the big picture.
