    Wow.. thats one sick lady. I hope she does get th efine AND jail time along with it.
    She must have mental problems though, to take a baseball bat to an animal like that...

    I hope that the old bat does some jail time. She wasn't even humane enough to make sure it was dead.

    Being as though I am a softie and a whimp when it comes to animal abuse, I cannot read the story. I will get upset and burst out in tears. [​IMG] Animal Abuse is UNACCEPTABLE and people should pay with JAIL TIME anytime they abuse any animal in any way. Poor peacock.

    She is clearly guilty of animal cruelty. Even if peacocks are an invasive species in Hawaii, and not everyone appreciates their noise, that was an unacceptable way to deal with the situation. Culling of any animal should be as fast and painless as possible. Beating the animal and leaving it to die of horrific injuries over a period of is not humane, and thus cruel. That sucks that she was acquitted. While a guilty verdict would be a slap on the wrist the since animal cruelty laws usually have only minor punishments, it matters that it is in her record and there was at least some justice dealt out.

    I can understand the need to "do away" with a pest
    But that is just sick what she did and wasn't even bothered to make sure it was dead. Very harrowing image.

    Sounds like she has some "penned" issues. I don't think jail will help her but she should definently be ordered to seek therapy.
