Yet another apparent case of animal cruelty in the news. Stuff like this really makes my blood boil.
That said, I always wonder about felony charges being sought in such cases. Hey, I'd like to slap the daylights out of people who are cruel to animals as many of you would, but do we have space in jail for people who mistreat animals?
It feels good to see felony charges being brought against some jerk, or jerks, but would that jail space be better used for some burglar or rapist? Maybe jail is the proper punishment? I don't know what the proper punishment should be. I guess I should just shut up and let the system do its thing.
In the meantime, if you haven't already been there, head on over to Unchainyourdog.org, check the site out, forward the link around and make a donation to them if you can afford it.
I believe there's also some fliers on that site you can print out and anonymously deliver to people who keep their dogs chained up. If you're one of those people that keeps your dog chained up or locked in a small enclosure all the time, UNCHAIN YOUR DOG!
