Warning for those keeping animals outside

In light of what I have just read on another site about the sick people who are getting kicks out of harming animals, I felt it right to put a post here....

If you own an animal which is kept outside please make sure the hutch is secure. There have been numerous reports about sick individuals opening hutches and stealing or mutilating the animals they find inside.

One small girl went out to feed her bunnies one morning and found that some sick b*****d had cut off both the rabbits heads and left the bodies under her swing. Needless to say she was totally traumatised.

It is because of events like this that I urge you to keep a padlock on the doors of your hutches or keep them in a shed with a lock on the door. It means that a determined person can still get in but most wont bother and will go in search of an easier target. Further more when I go out I never put the external light on (it lights up the hutches to passers by) and leave my living room light on so people think I'm home.

It is sad that we live in a world where we have to make provisions such as these but in those immmortal words, "better safe than sorry".

Unfortunately, things like this happen to other animals as well.

When I was still in school, a girl in the first year had a cat and it vanished, she was upset for ages but no-one could find her cat.

Eventually her older sister and some kids found it - not a sight anyone should ever have to witness. Someone had basically mutilated it and left it for dead around one of the fields.

We live in the countryside, so a lot of people here own cats, and they're all outside cats. My cat is female so she doesn't go further than outside our front garden, but her son is a different matter, and it's bloody frightening.

Nasty, very nasty. Mine our outside - the garden is secure, neighbours who rent are moving out and we have asked landlord to put up higher fence between our houses.

Anyone would have to get past the staffie first, I wish i had room for a shed. Gate is well secure and not many know i have outside furries.

My shed is a brick building with a lockable door. There is a security light above the door and an alarm was fitted yesterday so if anyone opens the door or window the alarm will go off.

There are some really sick and depraved people out there. That is precisely why I would not have any animal of mine live outside - my garden is not secure at all - and I worry the whole time my cats are out. I only relax when they're in with me for the night.
