He loved every one of those dogs.

I think that people get sick. It's kind of like anorexia where you can't see how bad you are looking. I think the animals go down by degrees, and they really can't see how bad it is.

But some of the dogs were shot, so they obviously saw that those dogs were seriously bad off. How terribly sad and disgusting.

They should both be charged with cruelty to animals -- felony charges. They need to go to jail.

This is just horrific!! And I think not only should the man go to jail but that woman deserves to go to jail too for having a hand in it! She knew what was going on! And you cant tell me that "you dont want a fat dog going after a deer" ... so what you want an emaciated dog running after a deer? My uncle has 6 hunting dogs 2 walker hounds, and 4 rabbit hounds and none of them are emaciated, lean yes, but you dont see any bones or anything, they are well taken care of and he hunts deer and rabbit.... I also have seen his buddies hunting dogs and they are the same... So what she says is absolutely bologna!

Local shelters don't have over 200 dogs running around sick, starving, and neglected. They care for a dog until they can no longer hold it for a new dog, and they humanely euthanize the dog, not shoot it in the head and leave it to rot.

I'll just keep my opinions to myself, in fear of being banned from the forum.

But... really, Volcano? That's because HUNDREDS of different owners bring in HUNDREDS of dogs EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. (At least at our county shelter, which takes in an average of 200+ animals DAILY!) It's not ONE person's doing, like this is!

Umm yeah, put down as humanely as possible in most cases. Not shot in the head or starved to death.

Shot in the head really doesn't bother me. People can do that every bit as humanely as taking a dog to the vet. But starving dogs or otherwise not treating them so that they die painful and unnecessary deaths -- that is seriously grusome.

Some shelters still kill dogs in the following ways:
Heart stick -- pull them out of their kennels and stab them. I don't know if it is more humane or just cheaper than gassing them.

Gassing -- cramming as many live dogs into a chamber as they can fit in there and then applying gas for a period of time. Dogs that are still alive after the gas has been turned off and ventilated are gassed again. During dying I am guessing these dog tear on each other. I would rather get a bullet in my head than be gassed.

Shooting -- yeah it is still done some places, just not very common.

The needle -- this is where they have to use a vet or euth tech. They inject the dog with stuff that shuts down their organs. If you do this at the vet, they will usually put your dog into a deep sleep first, and then inject the rest of the concoction, but not always. I don't know if this is what they do at shelters or not.

They used to electrocute the dogs in Cleveland. I don't know when that procedure went out of fashion, but I am glad that it did.

I haven't heard of them starving dogs to death though, quite the opposite. Too often they take a dog who is at deaths door, nurse it back to health, only to find it has no home, now adopters, and shucks, now they have to euthanize a healthy dog. But, if they get the story out there about the dog, they might find someone to adopt it. So I hope those dogs that have already fought back from the brink of death are truly saved. I would probably put down the severely injured or terribly ill, and use the money to provide for more dogs that are euth'd every day just because there isn't space for them. But that make me cold.
