I think it was around 55th and stark, anyhow, neighbors have put up warning signs. Apparently this guy has a bird feeder and doesnt like cats interfereing with his viewing pleasure. He sets up live-traps and then carts the cats off to the pound, even if they have tags clearly identifying them as belonging next door. This course of action has already caused the death of at least one treasured family pet.
Of course my first reaction was anger. Probably a lot of people are angry at this news.
Then I got thinking about the mentality of such a character. Someone very egotistical who thinks the entire world should be shaped to fit exactly his view of perfection. Someone who's belief in thier own superiority surpasses the basic idea of right and wrong we all more or less have. My question is this. 55th and Stark is within a mile of Laurelhurst Park. (In my humble opinion one of the most beautiful places in Portland) That swampy pond in the middle probably offers really good bird-habitat/ viewing. Of course the birds will take off if dogs chase after them.
Perhaps this could be the same guy who did the dog-poisoning in Laurelhurst Park.
We certianly are looking at the same kind of mental state.
