I am so angry that a rotten creep got off with a fine for microwaving a kitten. I saw the headline that this creep was fined for doing this evil deed , I didn't open the news to read about it... it upset me too much to even read the headline. I feel sick. What is wrong with people ??? I don't think I am going to read news anymore... it gets worse and worse.

Major vent. I have mentioned the dogs across the road, and how one of them kills chickens and killed one of our cats. I just caught him with one of our neighbor's beautiful young cats in his mouth, dead. We tried Animal Control (AGAIN) and got their answering machine. Then we called the sheriff's department. She said that Animal Control is now part of their department, and calls are recorded (so if there is no action this time, there is a record of it), so they put us through to them. They are supposed to be on the way right now. I love the dog (so does Cubbie), but his owner lets him run loose, and that has brought the problems. They had better take him this time.

I'll keep you updated.

Barbara

I hat when dogs are not under control. One of the parents at pre school was saying they got a puppy at the weekend. The daughter (8ish) was walking it on Monday when it was set on and torn to pieces by another dog running loose in the park. They too were struggling to get the police involved in getting this dog taken out of circulation.

Unfortunately, because we don't have a leash law, they can't just come out and pick him up. Anyone who can claim damages against him can take him to civil court. The Animal Control guy is going to go talk to the dog's owner and, as he said, "have a little prayer meeting and put the fear of God in him." If nothing else works, he can put a safe trap in our yard and take the dog in. Then the dog's owner would have to go get him if he wants him. They can't take the dog in unless the judge declares him a nuisance (if we all take him to court) or if he injures a child. They will check to see if his dogs (he has a few) have had their rabies shots. If they have not, there will be a $200 fine per dog.

Since that little girl witnessed such a horrible thing, I would think they could file for emotional damages. How horrible for her.

It's all very frustrating.

It is sad how people like doing this!! They actually love it
My husband had a friend that got a new puppy and took it to a field and shot it, just to see what it felt like to shoot an animal
He should have taken the gun away and shot HIM!! Makes me so ill when I see things like this. I cuddle my babies even more. There is a little dog down the road that you can see it's hips and ribs. It's the 2nd one they have had. They're trash, not worth the stuff you step in, but, they won't do anything about him, he just says it's not his dog and we don't have an animal control, so, they leave it!!
I am taking the little thing some food and hope it is okay.
