A few months ago, there was an incident in a town not too far from where we live.
A woman hit her dog in the head with a hammer several times, then placed him in a duffel bag, and threw him in a ditch. Luckily, someone saw the bag in the ditch in time to save the dog's life. He was taken to a veterinarian who worked on him until he had done everything possible. He is now able to walk again and is doing as well as can be expected due to the severity of his wounds. He was adopted by a couple who are very loving and caring people who will take care of him for what is left of his life. He is an older dog and because of his injuries, will not live as long as he might have. What is left of his life, however, will be as happy as this couple can possibly make it.
When I heard this story on the news, I was so enraged that I told my husband that I thought a suitable punishment for her was to have someone hit her in the head with a hammer and leave her in a ditch to die. An eye for an eye.............
I can't even imagine the kind of person who would do this to an innocent animal!!!!!
Yesterday, she was brought before a judge and for the first time for this kind of case, was charged with a felony. She will be tried in the Fall. There were several people who demonstrated outside the courthouse before the hearing and packed the courthouse during. When the Judge charged her with a felony, cheers erupted from the demonstrators. It is about time that people who do such heinous crimes be charged accordingly. The couple who adopted the dog, had her at the courthouse.
Are you as tired as I am of this kind of case NOT receiving the appropriate attention?
