burn deerFrom indystar.com:

Fulton County officials have arrested one person and are looking for another in connection with the death of a deer that was found burning alive on the side of the road last month.

Christopher Hodges, 18, of Mentone, was served with an arrest warrant Wednesday and faces one felony count of torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal…. An arrest warrant also has been issued for Mark Shepard, 20, also of Mentone, on the same charge. 

I thought I had heard it all, but…

Investigators say Hodges and Shepard were driving along in a 1994 Camaro when they struck the deer. They allegedly turned around, went back to the still-alive deer, poured gas on the animal and set it on fire.

I am just at a loss here. What is this world coming to? What is happening to the ethics and morals of America’s youth? How could two teenagers even think of doing such a horrid and inhumane thing?
