This story hit me very hard as it was likely the worst case of cruelty I'd heard in our small city in quite some time. Long story shirt, this beautiful puppy was left behind a Canadian Tire to die after having its legs taped together and mouth taped shut so forcefully that the poor puppy ended up with damage to its face and mouth.
This beautiful pup is being cared for / rehabilitated at the Humane Society of Windsor and is making a slow but positive recovery. There is a petition going to demand maximum punishment for the arse who did this to Justice the pup. I've attached the LINK at the top of the page. It would mean so much to me if you all could click and sign.
It is so disgusting to me the lack of appropriate punishment doled out to animal abusers. In cases such as this that are intentionally malicious and destructive, there should be mandatory jail time. Fines and animal bans just are not acceptable punishment. Animals are no different than children, they look to us to feed, bathe, love, and care for them yet when a child is harmed there is maximum penalties (deservingly) but our animal friends are valued so much less and punishment is usually reflective of this.
It's about time the laws reflect how most of us feel about animal abusers. Lock em up and leave them there!!!!
