The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated - Mahatma Gandhi. The Times of Malta editorial (May 2) really hurts those who love animals. 

Feeding horse meat to wild cats is like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Both are deprived of living in their natural environment, no matter how big or luxurious their cages are. Besides they are serving as a bad example to the ordinary citizen. 

How can one expect that humans observe the country’s rules when knowing that others, owners of wild cats et al, are free to break the rules incessantly. Apart from the above cruelty I remember when the same blood-thirsty people used to fight Cocks at Tal-Ħandaq, about 30 years ago, razor blades used to be stuck to their claws with tape so as to cut deeper and more painfully.
