This is a question Accidental animal cruelty

I once invented a brilliant game - I'd sit at the top of the stairs and throw cat biscuits to the bottom. My cat would eat them, then I'd shake the box, and he would run up the stairs for more biscuits. Then - of course - I'd throw a biscuit back down to the bottom. I kept this going for about half an hour, amused at my little game, and all was fine until the cat vomited. I felt absolutely dreadful.

Have you accidentally been cruel to an animal?
This question has been revived from way, way, way back on the b3ta messageboard when it was all fields round here.

life on the farm
A friend of ours left us his two shire-horses to look after when he lost the use of the field he had for them ( he has a carriage and does weddings and stuff with them)
We put them into the main field where we have 6 other horses and all was well.
One morning 2 days later only 1 shire horse is visible. After a quick tour of te field (wooded in places and steeply sloping in other places) I found it. She had drowned.
There is a wee watersource in the middle of the field which is a muddy hole surrounded by trees where the water bubbles up to the surface. The horses drink there without problem. Turns out that the mud is SIGNIFICANTLY deeper than we thought - deep enough to drown a shire-horse that may have the misfortune to stand in it.
She was pregnant too.
Absolutely gutted.

We also breed rabbits for meat. Rabbits are generally limited in noises to gently snuffling and occasionally some grunting when humping, but they do sometimes let out the most God-awfull, blood-curdling screams when frightened. Picking them up to dispatch them sometimes prompts shrieking that would wake the dead.
