    I'm not sure quite where to put this story...it doesn't fall under politics unless you're one of those right wingers who think animals have no feeling or rights and are here to be treated as we see fit.

    The penalties for animal abuse need to have some real teeth put in them. You have to wonder why people like this walk the earth.

    I see nobody cares to comment on the breaking of the puppy's legs story. What about if I suggested Sarah Palin was responsible....would that bring all you wingnuts out of the woodwork defending your hillbilly hero?

    Actually I wouldn't put this kind of thing past a Palin...they certainly have the track record.

    That is a horrible story, When did you first post it? I am just now seeing it.

    Why did that man break his legs and was it in Calif or Washington?

    Oregon has some strong laws against being mean to animals but I dont know about other states.

    you are so silly Popeye, always finding a way to bash Palin in every story.
    I am sure she is not into breaking legs of little puppies.

    Could obama adopt this dog? it would make for great PR

    It's in Oakland, Calif...it's the 4 month old puppy of an 11 year old girl, the guy is being charged with 2 counts of felony animal abuse. You can read more about it here..

    The reason I brought Palin into it was twofold...first so somebody would notice, second ..I believe that anyone who puts a bounty on wolves and advocates the slaughter of wolf puppies (denning) is no friend of animals. I doubt if she'd even bat an eye at something like this.

    Wolves that attack your children, live stock and smoke houses are a tiny bit different than cute little puppies dont you think?

    I would have replied to this earlier had I seen it earlier, you didnt have to bash Palin to get me to reply. I never saw the post till right before I replied.

    I miss a lot of posts. I go to "new posts" and sometimes before I get a chance to read them all the posts go away and I dont have the time to look through each catagory to find the newer ones. I go to user cp and can see what I have replied to lately but it dont help with new posts, so yours could have slipped through the cracks.

    I think people who hurt children should never get out of jail and people who hurt animals like this puppy or those who use gerbals in strange ways should get cained with 5 lashings like in other countries

    No one wants to see anyone intentionally breaking the legs of pets. The person who did this should go to jail.

    That said, animals rights should never trump the rights or needs of a human.

    I am glad that the authorities are doing what is right here, and while I dont condemn one bit what happened to this puppy and family pet. I have one that tops it from a few months ago. This guy was charged with felony animal cruelty and a number of animal violations.
    The moron caused a family to lose a pet, his own freedom, and bunch of criticism to those to trap responsibly. Setting a 22canibear trap in a bucket baited by dog treats is among the worst examples I have ever heard.

    As for the Palin issue, there is an interesting op-ed piece in the 3-2-09 edition of the Anchorage Daily News about the reality of predator control in Alaska. Ill post it in the next post.

    As promised. Also, I generally dont just copy and paste items and suggest you should form your opinion based on what this person writes, preferring to use my own words, but in this case, Fleener sums up my sentiments pretty closely.

    This guy will get years for breaking the puppies leg's. I don't mind that. But here in Arkansas, some guy got 6 months for breaking a 6 month old babies legs. When you do more time for injuring a animal, than a human baby, then there is something wrong about the laws.

    Anyone who could deliberately break a baby's legs should never see the light of day, unless it is as a part of a chain gang.

    Same for anyone who tortures animals. If he can do it to a puppy, he can do it to a baby. Just imagine what that 11 year old girl felt when that happened.

    I found a puppy a couple of years ago with a noose around its neck, howling and crying. Some sub human had placed it on a fence so that it could live just so long as it was able to hold on. Of course, I took it down, then called the local police, who came and got it. What an example of how low some people can stoop. I wrote a letter to the local paper, but it is unlikely that the perps ever read it.
