    News from Ashe County, NC: Sheriff: Viral Facebook video leads to trespassing charge http://jeffersonpost.com/news/2637/sheriff-viral-facebook-video-leads-to-trespassing-charge
    AC director Joe Testerman is the same guy who thinks people have a right to beat their own dog to death because it’s their property. His favorite method of dealing with stray dogs is gunshot.

  2. NY’s at it again. This one’s better than some of the others I’ve seen in the past, but it still doesn’t take into account working dogs, and people who work odd hours. AND would require veterinary and ACO written approval to tether a dog for more than 3hrs AND requires that such approval be redone every 60 days. Nor does there appear to be accommodations for housing situations where fences are prohibited by law, or where law prohibits a fence tall enough to keep the dog in and so tethering has to be done in addition to a fence.

      Unfortunately, this is true. You can read about the pound director resigning in the latest “Treats on the Internet,” found on this blog. . There is also a fb page, “Justice for Roxie.”
