You know how cockroaches scatter when a light is turned on?
When confronted with the exposure of their inhumane practices and needless killing, Memphis Animal Services staff could have stepped up, taken responsibility and worked toward reform. I would have respected that. Instead, they have opted to act like cowards and hide their wrongdoing. This says to me that they know their actions are shameful and they don’t have the backbone to defend themselves. So they go to plan B: Hide.
This week, MAS workers stopped hauling pets to be killed where they can be clearly seen on the shelter webcams. They are now using circuitous routes through the shelter to try and keep their abuse and killing on the down low, off the webcams. Apparently they think the public is so stupid, no one will notice that the shelter’s kill numbers continue to rise as it maintains its disgraceful 77% kill rate. And if we don’t see the inhumane treatment close-up, we’ll forget about it.
To clear up any misconceptions in that regard, I don’t forget.
Animal advocates everywhere are watching you Memphis. And your chickenshit attempts to fool the public by hiding your crimes will not succeed.
You are officially on notice, cowards.
