Not quite 36 people, but darned near if you count the neighbour who intervened, the vet who treated him, etc., etc.
I hope the woman who purposely ran over Hootie was severely punished. How could someone be so cruel?

If I remember correctly, she got a fine. That was it. The HS passed him on to the rescue org. because of the extent of his injuries and the cost associated with treating him. The rescue org paid more in vet fees than the fine. The vet did give a discount, but did not treat Hootie free-vets can't afford to do that.

Our rescue group took a ~5-month old puppy that needed to have her front leg amputated after she was "dropped/fell" from a third-storey window by her "owner." With the discount and our vet donating her time, it still was around $1000 to amputate the leg, the pain meds, etc. And, I had to "vet tech." (I still have images of putting that leg in the "waste" container--ugh).

Luckily, we had a great home waiting for this pup (not a Saint--mixed breed) and she learned to be a tripod fairly quickly.

The SPCA could not prove the owner threw the pup out the window, so the person did not get fined and did not have to pay anything re: the vet costs.

From my viewpoint, she is not only cruel, she is sick ... mentally ill ... This is an act of hate without cause.

To move on, to more positive subjects ...

Hootie was 3/4 yr old. So it was not as if the person had just acquired him. He had lived in that home for awhile before the woman decided she didn't want him. Never did hear the reason...

I have little use for folks that treat any animal in such a manner. Well I could come up with a couple of uses...Where is that molasses and ant hill?

+2 and bag of feathers...

I don't miss volunteering re: dog rescue. But, I did make friends with a lot of great folks (not Hootie's owner) and learned a lot about humanity.

I have more stories, just as ugly, just as bad. And, they are not made up stories, they are stories about what people have done to animals. Needless to say, I like animals more than I like people. Animals do not do the horrible things to one another that humans do.

Hmmm... on further refection....Maybe I could use HFCS instead of molasses.
That may the best use of that stuff....'Course the ants might object.
