For months, PETA tried to engage local law-enforcement officials to take action on a monstrous woman who kept a terribly neglected and miserable dog named Pepper, who needed urgent veterinary treatment, penned in her backyard.

you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well
set our fellow beings free
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Pepper's owner should pay for this big times. Something like this in my city would of been immediate action with no waiting period. Animal abuse is a No No here. PETA, if your so good at what you do, why did it take so long to save Pepper. I Sign your petitions almost daily and now I'm having second thoughts how PETA works.

WEll, good for that judge. He is so right. It's amazing how medical people can be so immune to the suffering of animals I am thinking of Medical schools who torture animals in the name of reducing suffering for humans. I would like to now where Pepper is now and how she is doing.It is always so rewarding to see them when they are finally being taken care of.

If I was aware of a dog like Pepper and KNEW of her medical situation and needs, which were not being met... heck! I'd just steal her. . Simple as that. I'm quite sure the horrible owner wouldn't even bother to call and report it.

I am sad to say I did not read the story thoroughly and was hoping Pepper had survived only to hear that she had died. There must e a special hell for people like this woman or there should be, hopefully before she dies.

I don't understand why it takes so long to rescue animals who are in this bad a shape. When people next door to us abandonned a mother cat and her 3 kittens (and padlocked the door upon leaving), we phoned our local shelter and animal control services, and were told the owner of the building would have to authorize their entry and that he was on vacation. We climbed in a window and took them. We adopted one who lived with us for 16 yrs. and a neighbour adopted another. We took the others to our local shelter. They were infested with bugs and starving when we found them and could have died if we'd waited. The place where they were living was a filthy hellhole.

Dear Pepper, run free at the Rainbow Bridge; no more pain, no itching, no thirst, no hunger. Just peace and love.

There is no justification for letting this dog suffer for so long. 'Whisked' Pepper to a veterinarian? There was not much whisking there - far too much time between finding out about Pepper and acting.

Poor little dog. I hate to think what evil she does to her patients. May the horrible woman meet her just reward and very, very slowly and painfully with the same care given her as she gave the dog. Yep, another I hate humans day shaping up.

This is so sad. Justice is truly in order, especially someone who's a nursing assistant. If this is what she does with a pet I hate to think what she does to her patients. As Marlene D. said,"Throw the book at her." There must be some island that we could sent these abusers to and let them have at each other.

Sadly, these cases are everywhere, and most go unnoticed in our own neighborhoods.

Not sure how people on this site actually don't read the facts presented. PETA cannot act as they are not the law. It was the law enforcement who did not act in a timely fashion and should be prosecuted as being accomplices to this horrible owner. Good for the judge though in bringing the horrible woman to justice.

This breaks my heart. So many pets are betrayed by those that are to protect and care for them. We need stricter laws for those that abuse animals.
