I would like to be there, along with the dogs, when he tries to explain himself to the Almighty. Laws must be changed. This is a horrendous crime showing he didn't care about the dogs, their health and safety, or anything else. Jail sounds appropriate to me.

I cannot imagine the agony these dogs went through before death finally took them away from the misery of starvation. These dogs were obviously loved and cared for. What I don't understand is if Croley is saying he can't pay for food, what is he doing with the money people have been paying him? Do the clients that have come to his establishment look at the kennel space where their pets will be? How could he hide something like this? I'm sure not all of the dogs came in at the same time and I would certainly be wanting to see the kennels before my dogs were dropped off no matter what it looked like on the outside. If there was any indication of a problem, I wouldn't be leaving my animals. I think punishment should fit the crime, and I think he needs to be locked in one of his own kennels with no food, water or sanitation. He sure looked like he had been eating when he making his sad face for the judge! What goes around, comes around. I would guarantee that if I were the owner of one of the dogs that passed away, Mr. Croley wouldn't want to pass me in the street. I'd give him something to think about when I was beating the crap out of him.
