    It appears that the USA is not along with corrupt animal organizations. Talk about gouging people out of their money! Anyone have a half million laying around?

      Waterford, and too many other locations, are well known for their policies about several kinds of dogs. Short hair? Blocky head? MUST be a pit bull! We have a ways to go to get out of the dark ages here.

  2. OMG, this is how police should handle potentially dangerous dogs! I wish they would all get the training this guy had: https://youtu.be/xKFiHsvx4C0

      Oh, this is good! He should have tried to get them in the car earlier, but still big points for safely containing them!

      I can see where a foaming Boxer would really freak some folks out – so good that he kept his cool.

    A shelter in Carroll County, VA, kills a dog for killing a chicken even though the Richmond SPCA, Homeward Trails and other groups had offered to take him. http://richmondspca.typepad.com/richmond-spca-blog/2016/06/a-needless-and-indefensible-death-in-carroll-county.html

  5. I guess they can stop gutting every alligator in the search area now that they have found the remains of the toddler in Orlando.

      Interesting that they chose orange as the third food – most cats find citrus offensive.

      Now if they had chosen cantaloupe, that would be interesting. Many cats love cantaloupe – the theory being that there is an amino acid similarity to meat…

  7. Since you’ve written a lot about HSUS, thought you would be interested in this blog that I just ran across.
    http://www.examiner.com/article/animal-medical-fund-created-to-honor-murdered-singer-christina-grimmie

    “The HSUS has decided to honor Grimmie for her support by creating the Christina Grimmie Animal Medical Fund which will help animals who are rescued by the agency’s Animal Rescue Team. ”

    This comes from the organization that, as you know, rarely spends money to truly “rescue”, or actually help, animals in any way and instead regularly dumps those “rescues” on other shelters, including kill shelters who gas animals to death.

    Just when I thought the HSUS could not stoop any lower, they are using this woman’s murder to suck more money out of unsuspecting animal lovers.
