    I am wondering why MAS had to wait for Target Zero instead ofimmediately starting to save dogs rather than kill them. Very strange to me….

      Well, more power to them if they can save lives, but I have serious reservations with Target Zero’s approach – particularly no stray hold for cats.

      What MAS needs is strong, compassionate leadership. Something they still seem to be missing…

    This is one of the weirdest dog stories I’ve ever read. I’m not sure how I feel about the “rescuer” being charged with burglary. (Restitution, yes, obviously.) What’s most striking to me is that, despite his condition, the man still did the right thing . . . he rescued the dog! (Who was, crucially, unharmed in the event.)

      That’s um… wow. I mean, he was definitely trying to do the right thing. Points for that.

      I can only be grateful he didn’t think that the house needed to be burned down or something.

      Don’t do drugs, kids.

    This has to be the most base example of law enforcement I have ever seen. The brutal cruelty and then he remains in his position is inexcusable!
