Matthew Pepper, infamous for his you-are-not-seeing-what-you-are-seeing explanations for images of abuse on MAS webcams, tells New Mexico TV news: “You cannot be oblivious to the suffering of an animal around you.” (Thank you Clarice.)
A Harris Co ACO found a disabled TX woman lacked proper paperwork on her dogs and threatened her with hefty fines if she didn’t surrender some. The owner says the ACO promised family members would have at least 3 days to pick up the dogs at the pound. Harris Co killed all three dogs, including one puppy, upon impound.
