An owner surrendered her house cat to a vet clinic in GA and staff called DeKalb Co AC to pick up the friendly pet. When a rescue group contacted the pound to ask about helping the cat, they were told the AC worker had dumped her in a park instead of bringing her to the pound. (A scenario which will undoubtedly delight the so-called animal welfare groups in favor of abandoning cats instead of sheltering them.) DeKalb Co says it was an oopsie, never happened before, workers will receive additional training… you know the drill. (Thanks Clarice for the link.)
Fourteen pitbulls were “rescued” from what appears to have been a dogfighting operation in LA. Police were conducting a drug raid when they discovered the injured and abused dogs. The dogs were taken to East Baton Rouge Animal Control where they were immediately photographed as evidence then killed. Ignorant bastards.
The USDA APHIS Wildlife Services killed 2.7 million animals last year, including 16 “pets or livestock” and 1001 “feral or free-ranging” dogs and cats. (Thank you Arlene for the link.)
