The idea is to give a treatment that is the same as humans did to animals, so that these people can taste their way of treating, but this time on themselves.
There are more and more stories about animal rights that are also living souls that seek attention and love, and can be seen in many videos of various organisations rescuing abandoned, abused and mistreated animals. Surely those people who intentionally harass animals have problems with their psyche, and also people often inadvertently can injure or threaten animals. Some just leave their pets in the woods or some wilderness, letting their fate or fortune find them. Often these pups are incapable of taking care of themselves, and these situations are really heartbreaking to watch.
Maybe those people who do all this and cause pain and suffering, and even life-threatening animals, would change their minds if they were left somewhere in the wild with nothing and with little hope that someone would help them. Judge Michael Cicconetti of Painesville, Ohio came up with this idea. Some will never be apprehended for a crime against an animal, unfortunately, but some will have the misfortune to end up with Judge Michael Cicconetti after being caught up in their misdeeds.
The now-retired Judge is known for dishing out creative and unusual punishment to animal abusers as a way of giving them a taste of their own medicine. This way, the lesson from maltreating animals is very much likely to stick forever. To make things clear, the Judge never gave out dangerous and illegal punishment but did teach offenders something about not being jerks.
Judge Cicconetti gives out creative sentences to animal abusers. For example, he allowed a woman, who abandoned 35 kittens in the woods spend a night in the woods all by herself. "How would you like to be dumped off at a metro park late at night, spending the night out listening to coyotes and raccoons all around you in the dark night? How would you feel sitting out there in the cold not knowing where next to get a meal, not knowing when you will be rescued?" The Judge asked the woman, who abandoned the 35 kittens.
Another example is the woman who kept her dog in the filth also spent the day in the city dump. To the woman whose dog was living in filth, the Judge said: "I want you to go down to the country dump to landfill and interestingly I want them to find the stinkiest and smelliest odor place they can locate in that dump and you will sit there for 8 hour tomorrow. After which you will think about what you did to that dog while you perceive the odor."
A truly original and somewhat traditional, but effective way for people to remember and understand what they are doing to poor animals, unintentionally or intentionally, animals certainly suffer.
