This is going to be a little short tonight.

We are watching Animal Cops Houston, on Animal Planet. They had a story on about a dog that had been left with a jumper cable around his neck as a tie to a fence. There was no water, no food, and the dog had no slack in the so called rope. This left the poor dog sitting in it’s own excrement, for over 30 days. At this point in the show, they have not located the owners. Hearing the poor dogs cries are heart wrenching.

People who do things like this should be taken out and shot. Or at the very least, treated the exact same way they treated their animals. These people probably abuse their children too. Is it really a stretch to imagine that? I don’t think so. As far as animal cruelty, here in Texas the law provides a maximum sentence of 2 years in prison. Not enough. Not nearly enough!

I think the prison term for animal cruelty should be no less than what the sentence for child cruelty is. ( I am not certain of the maximum term on that is, but it’s a damn site more than animal cruelty.) But animal are considered chattel, and up to a point you can do whatever you want with them.

Oh well, What can I say, this is a subject that I get very angry about. Rant for the day done!
