OMG, I am so shocked and sickened. I hear of Police shooting dogs for no reason over there, and now this? This really is so shocking!
Is there a petition for this?

Disgusting- they would rather let the animal painfully have to endure the drive to the shooting range, rather than take the animal to a local emergency vet?

Il est grand temps que cette loi soit revue et que les animaux soient enfin protégés, non seulement en Californie,mais partout sur cette planète.
