Drawing the Line

I'm completely in favor of legislation like this. Cruelty to animals in order to create "art" is unacceptable; in fact, cruelty to animals and ART are antithetical to each other. Perhaps some serial killers see their acts as art. That doesn't make it so.

This past year an artist named Guillermo Vargas placed and tied up a starving dog in his "exhibit."

Here is a video with some pictures.
Outrageous. One has to wonder about the people passively observing the animal as part of this demented spectacle. It's always the question--who's worse, the sinners of OMISSION, or the sinners of COMMISSION.
