PERHAPS IF THE GOVERMENT SHOULD INTRODUCE DEATH SENTENCE FOR ANIMALS LIKE THIS, IT WILL SERVE AS A LESSON. THIS IS A REALLY SAD STORY. ALL THE BAD EGGS IN THE TASK FORCE WILL MEET THEIR WATERLOO IN JESUS NAME.

Very sad, things could have been handle differently in a safe manner. Another child is made motherless again and left to swim this ugly cruel world alone. May her soul rest in peace.
