It was clear that dog had a good home for a long time. Even though it appeared the border collie story didn't end well, I was happy someone cared.
I've said it here before, but crimes against the defenseless bother me most. Kids, elderly, animals.
Today's entry is clearly about animals.
We've seen a lot of disgusting things in this area-- hoarders, pierced kittens, puppy mills, violators of court orders, abuse, neglect... It's a long list, and getting longer.
A friend who worked in the animal welfare business once told me a big part of the problem is some people view animals as disposable.
Animal abuse penalties in this state are a little more than a slap on the wrist.
Maybe people would wise up if animal abuse was more than a misdemeanor.
