This man left an adult cat and a kitten in a zipped-up duffel bag by the side of the road (allegedly)

NEWS AND COMMENT - PULASKI, VA: Sometimes I want to look into the eyes of the sort of person who has the ability to put two cats into a bag, zip it up, place it by the side of a road and then drive off. Because I don't know how people do it. They must have a bit of their brain missing. 

The man who did it is Ronald Goodwyn.

The picture of this man was taken by the police who arrested him on two counts of animal cruelty and abandonment of an animal and dumping trash on a highway. Imagine that: dumping trash on a highway. I would have thought that that is not the right charge. Surely it's a mistake? Sentient beings are not trash. I can't understand what the police are thinking about. And there's no need to add that charge to an animal cruelty charge which presumably carries a stiffer punishment.

The offence took place in Pulaski, Virginia, USA. The cats were found in September near Route 11. Inside was an adult cat who had died and a kitten who had survived. Perhaps this was a mother and her kitten. Can you imagine the trauma that the kitten has been through? The man who allegedly did it is Ronald Goodwyn.
