Hi Debbie!.....That poor dog. A golf club...what the hell! I love the Terrier breeds. They'll frustrate you than jump on your lap as if they know they'll always be forgiven....at least in my home.

Terrier Survives Horrific Alleged Abuse, Felony Charged
3 years ago

lacey

 

 

(Kern County, CA) Lacey, a 6-pound terrier, was allegedly abandoned for days, reportedly having been tied to a tree, hit with a golf club and sprayed in the eyes with bleach. Animal control officers discovered her on December 4, 2010. Lacey has since undergone extensive veterinary treatment and is reportedly undergoing rehabilitation in a loving home.

The dog’s owner, Robert Gonzales, has been charged with felony animal cruelty as well as three possession-related charges. Providing yet another tragic example of the link between cruelty to animals and violence toward humans, this defendant is reportedly the subject of a domestic violence restraining order as well.

Take Action!
Send a polite letter to the Kern County District Attorney, encouraging that the case be prosecuted vigorously, with a strong and meaningful sentence sought upon conviction.

Local residents are encouraged to support the prosecution by attending the court proceedings. A pretrial hearing is currently scheduled for April 15, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. (Always contact the Court to confirm court dates and locations as they are subject to change.)

Horse neglect, 3 found dead
Manhattan, IL

Strangely, it was during the Jan. 3 search of the area near the farm that investigators discovered a stolen Lincoln Navigator that was later found to contain the partially dismembered body of Gerardo DeLatorre, 37, of Lyons.

Barry said the SUV's location was "absolute coincidence" and investigators had found no links between the two cases.

Just because police haven't found any "links" doesn't necessarily mean they don't exist. Still, I hope they're right.

Puppy mill - 49 dogs seized

I'm not surprised the Department of Agriculture approved this woman's license. I'm sure we've all read and heard how..."observant"...their..."inspections".. were in that Chico , CA slaughterhouse nightmare.

Never trust breeders who tell you to "meet them someplace" to pick up your puppy.

I have just received an update on a case dating back to September 19 of last year regarding a man in Dover New Hampshire accused of ignoring a veterinarian's warnings and allowing his 4 year-old Shiba Inu to chew his severely injured foot down to the bone.

http://www.pet-abuse.com/cases/12721/NH/US/#UPDATES

I was perfectly willing to give this man the full benefit of a doubt...thinking that he truly cared for the animal and did the best with what he had...but this latest news just makes me want to question his sincerity and character  :

A 48-year-old local man has been charged with sexually assaulting a minor. Brian M. Laurion of 712 Central Ave., Apartment E, faces a Class A misdemeanor charge of sexual assault for allegedly assaulting a girl older than 13 but under the age of 16.

The charge was filed by the Strafford County Attorney's Office and alleges that on or about June 27, 2007, Laurion assaulted the female for his own gratification. The charge resulted from the victim coming forward to the county attorney's office.

The charge is punishable by up to a year in prison.

In March, Laurion pleaded guilty to an animal cruelty violation stemming from an incident in November 2007 where his dog gnawed its foot to the bone because of a lack of medical treatment.

As a result, he was forced to forfeit ownership of the dog.Source: Fosters.Com - June 26, 2008

The witness said men were standing in the street in a circle surrounding the dogs. The witness said that when the dogs tried to flee the fight, the men grabbed them and tossed them back inside the circle, Ploghaus said.

When police came, the men claimed they were simply trying to breed the dogs in the middle of the street when they began fighting on their own, Ploghaus said.

Regarding sexual assault case in FLA

http://www.pet-abuse.com/cases/13757/FL/US/

May 2008

MIAMI HERALD

Bestiality ban passes Senate committee. The sordid case of Lucky the guide dog. And the House?

Sunrise Sen. Nan Rich's proposal to make it a crime to have sex with animals (yes, it's legal in Florida) finally got a hearing and a swift unanimous vote in the Senate Criminal Justice committee. Rich, a child's rights advocate, said that those who abuse animals (sexually and otherwise) are likely to do the same to kids.

The bill was precipitated by the sex assualt-related strangulation of a goat in Mossy Head (full story here), but other terrible tales have now surfaced.

Before the vote, Leon County prosecutor Michael Bauer sent Rich and other senators a letter recounting his troubles prosecuting the 2006 case of a blind guy who had sex with his male yellow Lab "Lucky." The man explained "freely about his regular sexual acitivities with his dog and said he would take the dog for a walk prior to sex to 'prevent fecal impact.'"

Bauer wrote that the case would have been easier to prosecute if a bestiality ban were in place. Ultimately, the man was convicted of a cruelty to animal charge and he got three years of sex-offender probation.

"The clear status of our state law at this point is that the FLorida Legislature has not prohibited bestiality in our State. Bestiality is currently legal in Florida!" Bauer wrote. "Please do your part to make this easy judgment call."

So far, the bill has yet to be heard in the House. We'll find out why.

Download Letter.Senate.Bill.Bestiality.doc

Nan Rich takes on a beastly issue.

nanrichb.jpg

State Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston (pictured right) has made her legislative calling in dealing with children's issues. So what's a South Florida Democrat whose forte leans toward foster care, universal Pre-K and the medically needy wading into the sexual appetites of men and women who prefer doing the wild thing with dogs, goats and horses?

Unfortunately, forced trysts between the species are a problem in the Sunshine State. Take the case of the Martin County laborer who police said sodomized an Argentine Dogo puppy. Or the lab test in Okaloosa County that confirmed that a man sexually assaulted a dead female goat. Or the 63 year-old man authorities in Manatee County say twice pushed his entire arm into a horse's vaginal cavity.

Florida unfortunately doesn't have a law that specifically prohibits sex with animals. It once had "Crimes Against Nature" laws on the books, but those statutes included laws against homosexuality, which the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately struck down. Thirty-four states reinstated enough of those Crimes Against Nature laws to cover bestiality. Florida has not.

An animal cruelty charge is about the most you can get, and it's difficult to make a case like that stick. Lab work for most human on human crimes take time. Animal abuse comes in with low priority written all over it. Plus, it's not like the victim can testify in court.

There's also that nagging connection between animal abuse and abuse of other humans. Over the past 25 years, there have been a slew of studies showing that violent offenders frequently have childhood and adolescent histories of repeated cruelty to animals.

Rich's bill, SB 744, prohibits a person for knowingly engaging in sexual acts with an animal. The measure has the support of animal rights groups and law enforcement, and you'd think the measure would be sailing through the Legislature. It's not. Privacy and the need to keep the government out of one's bedroom, barn or pasture has dampened any real legislative zeal to make this bill a law.

The bottom line is that this is a good bill that gives both animal rights advocates and law enforcement another tool to protect animals and ultimately humans too. You might think this effort would be too "dark" for Rich, but she argues there is a child-welfare connection in what appears to be an initiative to protect four-legged creatures from being sexually abused by their two-legged counterparts.

The charges are misdemeanors, but could land William Reed in jail for 93 days.

Misdemeanor.....A misdemeanor is when someone neglects their animal's health out of ignorance , I should think....NOT when they beat it with chains and shovels . That is the sign of person with anger management issues and a case that should be treated just a bit more seriously .

That Tarentum case....Is it up to a thousand now....? Wow...Well, I suppose it must be , now that they're unearthing all the deceased that were buried. I'm sure the woman had the best of intentions but that sixth Commandment , Thou shalt not kill , may well have been taken to an extreme misinterpretation here . To allow those poor animals to languish in such a crowded , unhealthy environment is hardly humane . The same could be said for all those poor , pitiful horses . Nearly all 70 of them were ranked at 1.5....?

As for the dog fighting disease...I'm afraid the media has given Mr. Vick far too much exposure for all those wannabe thugs out there to ignore ....and while it's a good thing as well in that it's put more attention on the long-suffering plight of these poor creatures, it's a sad thing it's taken far too many people too long to open their eyes to it .

"Whatever happened was a mistake, human frailty," Freeman said.

That is putting it a bit too mildly, don't you think ? Had it been a person whose skull the guy drilled holes into , would they have said the same ? I think not . The dog was protecting her pup . There was no need for him to react in such an extreme manner . Why his bond was reduced by half , considering the violent nature of the case and the fact that the animal had to be put down as a result of her injuries....highly questionable .

Cruz could be fined $5,000 and imprisoned for up to five years if he's convicted of maliciously maiming or killing an animal, a Class D felony, and animal cruelty, a misdemeanor.

You know, I'll never understand why the penalty for intentionally abusing or killing an animal is so much less severe than it is for the same crime against a human . A life is a life .

For Sure.....Funny...I like Sting. That's not a bad song actually.

7 years ago
Yes, I'm sure it was a very difficult decision for the man . It's hard for anyone to admit they've done all they can for their pet...or anyone they care about....and say they can do no more . It sounds a bit soppy, I know...but it's like that old song by Sting...If you love somebody, set them free . He's done the righ thing.
7 years ago

I think your right. It does sound like he cared for the dog. He actually said he loved the dog. That's a very interesting case.....As a matter of fact you and I wondered on this case not to long ago. I honestly feel he did the right thing. Five months has gone by now and if the dog is happy than that's the important thing.

I have an update on the case of the man in Dover , New Hampshire who failed to follow recommended veterinary treatment for his 4 year-old Shiba Inu , Buddy .

Hideous, brutal "sport" it is, yes....and it seems to me that the high publicity of that Michael Vick mess has had both positive and negative consequences . Positive , of course , because it's raised people's awareness of this bloodsport , negative because ...well...human nature, isn't it ? The more you tell some people not to do something, the more likely they are to do just that...and , oh, them good ol' boys are bad....

Apparently dog fighting in the South is rife still...It may never go away. The 22 dogs taken in Florida sounds like a blood bath was going on. It almost seems as if they released more than two at a time at each other.

 You're right Debbie! To shoot a horse fifty times isn't an impulse....It's gluttony. The little boys need to be punished. In Nevada they tried to let them off too. We raised our voices and the little boys had to serve time. We love our wild horses here. They are the coolest things to observe. It's senseless slaughter.

That just makes no sense to me at all . Shock probation....?....Diversion....?...." If you're good little boys and promise to behave , the charges will be dismissed and all will be forgiven . We understand you have an impulse control problem .

Certainly must be a sadistic streak in those who get off on watching animals tear into each other , whatever their age .

As for the puppy mill dogs' eyes , I've seen so many cases of that at the shelter where I work . They tend to develop these tumor-like growths in their eyes. All too common , yes .

I don't know what path to take on this one. I'm not sure if it was pure animal abuse. 1) he did take the dog to the vets. 2) It does appear that he kept watch on the leg at times. 3) He had enough heart to bandage the leg.4) He did take the dog back to the vets. It seems he cared to and interesting degree on how his dog was doing. I'm curious to where this goes.

It's interesting that they wanted the case kept out of the media in Green Bay. Not surprising though....as the article stated it was to close to Vicks case lingering around. Public outcry, stronger sentencing,ect...All that should be happening I feel.

The ostrich case....? Yeah . That's dragged on for an uneccessarily long time , hasn't it ? Utter b.s that they claimed self defense when it was shown they didn't have the guns on them at the time of the attack but ran off and got them in a drunken rage , came back to the ostriches and THEN shot them . I think it must be the "owner" of the ostriches who' s slowing things down . She doesn't appear to want prison time for the guys but rather that they...atone for their...misdeeds....and seek...treatment . Ah, ya gotta love Californians....

Anyway , thanks for the b-day wishes , John . Have a good weekend , all .

I find that so odd....It has to be this new macho generation. Perhaps the cage fighting that's so in vogue these days. My wife and I went to a sports bar to watch the Nevada Wolfpack basketball game a few months back. They weren't showing it because the majority of people wanted to watch the Ultimate fight night. I'll never go there again.

True, John , especially in light of all the negative publicity surrounding it lately , namely the Michael Vick mess . Still , it seems the more forbidden things are, the more certain people are inclined to do them .

My twin brother told me about the Greenville dog fighting in North Carolina. It's popular in that state and could be growing still. I don't know why.
