The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

The wrong person is persecuted, not that this is uncommon.
But, if you were to see this dog, would you find yourself thinking the criminal is the lady who helped, or the owners who did nothing - except create the situation and then neglect it?
This has made today a very strong "dislike humans and their bullshit bureaucracy" day.
I'm going to go throw up now.

sO stupid... why would you even BUY the dog in the 1st place, if you're just gonna treat it like crap!???

I am guessing a lot of these people don't buy them, they get puppies from other people like them, who don't fix their dogs, or ever even take them to the vet.
Back yard/alley breeding. And they probably just have the dogs for watch dogs and never even give them any love. Hence, the chained to the dog house situation. It just makes me so sick and mad. And for someone to get in trouble for helping a creature in pain is just beyond disgusting.

` Wow. How can anyone argue with a dog getting medical care? When someone sees a person lying on the ground, dying, they call an ambulance. Unfortunately, the law doesn't protect dogs, I guess!

` I knew someone whose former boyfriend said his family loved animals and had a lot and he even built a barn for the horses on this huge, very nice property.
` She got there and found that the horses weren't allowed outside and their nails hadn't been trimmed in years!
` The goats were in a small pen, suffering from hoof-rot and were walking on their 'knees' because they couldn't stand!
` There were six kennels of dogs, all locked up and not allowed to go outside.
` Then, the garage: An eight year old cat and dog, having spent their entire lives in a pitch dark, tethered to stakes in the floor on a one and a half-foot leash, wallowing in their own crap. The cat had to howl in order to get water, and its entire left side was completely bald from not being able to get up.
` My friend called the ASPCA but they didn't have jurisdiction in Holmes County. She also called the Humane Society, but there was nothing they could do because the animals weren't starving.
` I bet if she had tried to steal some of the animals she would have been in even worse trouble than that lady.

Quine, that makes me even more sick. Now I might have to go hurt or cannibilize someone. Ugh. I won't even start with more than a preemptory comment about how we are ALL animals, and my cats are much more personable than most people I have to deal with on a daily basis. I have dreams, visions of setting animals free from testing labs and prisons, only I know that they have no where to go that is safe, erm, except my house.
