”Tell me what’s wrong.”
”Look at this photo of him holding the bird up to the camera. There is research that shows that people who abuse animals also abuse children and adults.”
”Deb, do you think he’s hurting the bird?”
”I’m not sure, Carol. I am sure the bird isn’t happy being held in that kind of position.”
Deb had been married only a short time. When she went home that night, she went to the bird cage. Hank pushed her away and grabbed the bird. He threw it to the floor.
“There,” he said. “Stupid bird.”
