If this isn’t cruel irony I don’t know what is.
Two animal rescuers-Bonnie Sheehan, 55, and Pamela A. King-McCracken, 59- who have their dog rescue operation, called Hearts for Hounds, in California, are “facing aggravated animal cruelty charges after cops caught them with more than 100 dogs and one cat stuffed in the back of a U-Haul truck without food, water, or adequate air, police said.” Sheehan and King-McCracken were busted in Fayette County, Tennessee. According to their website, they were moving their operation to Roanoke, VA.
The dogs cages held four or five dogs, were stacked one on top of another and they were laying in their own feces.
“One dog was dead, police said.”
According to the article, one of the first thing one of the women said to an officer is “we love our animals.”
What a twisted version of love she has envisioned.
That is not love! That is cruel and unusual punishment to such innocent creatures who only want to be loved.
I am so sick and tired of people treating animals so cruelly. Animals have feelings to- they cry when they are upset or someone mistreats them, they wag their tails when they are happy and they suffer when someone mistreats them.
The only difference is that they can’t fight for their rights. So it is our duty and obligation to do it for them. We must protect animals from these types of abuses because they are inhumane and intolerable.
They deserve to be treated with respect, dignity and love- nothing less.
