they jus wanted to see its reaction i guess.......thats y ppl throw things at animals i guess.....usually they jus do it outta a mixed feeling of fear and curiosity....u just have to make it realise that everyone including animals have feelings...i just asked them to put themselves in its place and think of everyone thowing stuff at them....

What a crazy story! Do you have any idea why the kids were throwing stones at it? I find in those situations if you ask people doing something like that a simple "Why are you doing that?" really helps them take a moment to see that they're doing something harmful.

Please keep us posted...
