Ridiculous. It's always the good deeds that are punished when the god awful worthless trash committing atrocious acts of cruelty against animals are basically rewarded---hardly any ever get prosecuted. Thx Susanne

Oh good grief. The poor dog gets attacked by an off-leash animal, which isn't okay in the first place, and then threatened with being put down? The laws in our country are becoming truly ridiculous!

Never would I tolerate this, I will go in and rescue animals that are abused and God help the one that tries to stop me, I have done it many times before, and I will continue doing it. They can call the cops, call whoever the hell they want to, but it is not going to stop me. In fact, one of my rescues, now senior, was just such a dog, taken from horrendous conditions and I warned the owner that if they wanted her back I would make sure I drag them through every court in South Africa! This woman deserves a medal, and we need so many more people like her!

No good deed goes unpunished. Because the world is full of idiots.

Isn't it awful that Penny is considered a "dangerous breed"- when she herself was the innocent victim of an unleashed dog attacking her?
