Re: "Teen charged with killing raccoon, opossum," May 26 Herald.
I'm glad to see this teen being charged with felony animal abuse. There's no reason in the world why an opossum and raccoon had to be trapped and shot to death.
The video of the raccoon twisting and writhing after being shot was gut-wrenching. Making an animal suffer excruciating pain and die a slow, horrific death must not be tolerated.
I hope Brevard County punishes him to the fullest extent of the law.
