The depths of human depravity

I know that there are sadistic sociopaths out there who delight in the suffering of other people and animals. But despite that awareness, I am still capable of being shocked by the depths of depravity exhibited by some, like those involved in this story.

A British woman has pleaded guilty to being part of a global monkey torture network.

Holly LeGresley, 37, from Kidderminster in Worcestershire, admitted uploading 22 images and 132 videos of monkeys being tortured to an online chat group.

She was charged after an investigation by the BBC into the torture of monkeys overseas. The investigation exposed a global network involving a private online group paying people in Indonesia to kill and torture baby monkeys on video.

The BBC said LeGresley used the username “The Immolator” and ran a poll for members of the group on which method of torture should be inflicted upon an infant monkey.

That people could even conceive of a scheme to torture and kill baby monkeys and then find people around to world willing to fund it just boggles my mind.

    I read about this some time ago. Glad to see names, but I doubt they’ll get serious jail time. The sociopath network included people in the US.

    Torturing our cousins. Distant cousins, admittedly, but still. Enraging.

    I suspect some of the “animal rights” activists I have met would cheerfully pay to see Holly LeGresley & colleagues abused too.

    When the zombies rise, we can appease them by tossing these cruel wankers to them.
