An expert says followers of occultist practices could be behind the killing of pets belonging to a 13-year-old girl in Kaiseraugst, in the north of Switzerland.

Read the full article: Swiss girl's bunnies found beheaded after Halloween
I am trying to understand the groans as well.

My neighbour has rabbits, they have a large enclosure and a hutch. They are very cute. It makes me sick imagining someone discovering their pet rabbits beheaded.
This was a very sick act, the rabbits were kept on someone's private property. Some of you who groaned, do you own a pet? What if your family pet had been a victim? Would you be groaning???

This incident was reported in the news and there is a number to contact the police. It is not a joke.

If the local had posted this story under the pets section, I am certain it would have had a very different reaction.

Here's the story pre-plagiarisation: http://www.20min.ch/news/mittelland/story/27293844 (in German)

It's always good to compare.

The true worth of satire is knowing where the audience's weak spot is and then manipulating latent feelings without actually "doing the deed", pour example:

That's sick.

Still better than a Rottweiler called "Get him."

Their blood is supposed to give strength to the perpetrators of such acts

And I supposed the strength of a Rabbit is a must for occultists...
A view bunches ,gives the culprit a bloody nose that they are to weak to kill someones pet
