Cruelty to people

1 Comment

I was watching a guy on the sidewalk here at Joe’s tonight with his new little dog which had been a stray from the street. This man has a speech impediment and doesn’t always smell like daisies. He was also my first friend at Joe’s. “To have friends, you have to be friendly,” he says.

This man now has charges of animal cruelty because of his living conditions. Though he loves his pets, they were taken from him because he lives in a very small, very dirty camper.

But that’s where I start to get confused… “Oh, I’m sorry sir, your living conditions aren’t fit for animals, so we’re going to make sure they are given an opportunity for a better dog life and we’ll leave you here by yourself. On your own. And take you to court.”

Yes, I’m thinking maybe it’s time for a better way…
