Animal cruelty - what if it's close to home?

Warning: readers may find this blog distressing.

I received an email from an animal shelter volunteer about a kitten that came to the shelter as the sole survivor of a terrible crime of cruelty. The kitten had been surrendered by an anonymous caller who apparently witnessed her uncle kill the other kittens from the litter by running over them with his car. She managed to save one of the kittens, but did not want to report him.

I don't know what has happened since - did this woman report her uncle or decide to hide his crime? This man may just get away with murder.

But what would you do if the person torturing an animal is your relative?
