Wicked Seraphim I am so glad this pathetic, fugly, nasty, greasy looking stain of waste was found. I hope she is made an example of and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

I hope these puppies grow to be healthy in wonderful homes and know no more cruelty and only love and kindness in their futures.

ETA never mind. The law says it's illegal to kill period. You're saying you can't kill because it annoys you.

I think the reason for shooting the animal should make a difference. For instance, some K9s have such a terrible time at the vet, that to take an seriously ill or injured k9 to the vet to euthanize it would be more inhumane than to take the dog out in the woods, and shooting it.

Shooting a dog because it annoys you? Some people are missing some major components, and she is one of them.

Lilie It isn't legal in the state of Texas to shoot your dog because it's annoying you:

Section 42.09 "Cruelty to Livestock Animals" and 42.09(2) "Cruelty of Non-Livestock Animals" of the Texas Health and Safety Code prohibits a person from intentionally, knowingly or recklesly cruelly treating an animal. The following actions define cruel punishment:
  1. Torturing an animal
  2. Failing to provide food, care or shelter
  3. Abandoning an animal
  4. Transporting or confining an animal in a cruel manner
  5. Killing, seriously injuring or poisoning an animal
  6. Causing an animal to fight with another
  7. Using a live animal as a lure in a dog race
  8. Tripping a horse
  9. Injuring an animal belonging to another person
  10. Seriously overworking an animal.
House Bill 653 and Senate Bill 1724, commonly known as “Loco’s Law,” went into effect September 1, 2001, making animal cruelty a felony and punishable by a $10,000 fine and up to two years in jail. The law was named for a puppy called Loco, whose eyes were intentionally gouged out. Prior to Loco’s Law, animal cruelty was not considered a felony under Texas law. Today, animal cruelty convictions are classified as either a felony or misdemeanor.

If the dog was extremely sick and was going to die a slow painful death or if the dog was vicious and attacked or bit someone for no reason then if you deal with that by shooting the dog then that is your way of dealing with it. I don't agree with it but everyone has different ways of handling things.

But to shoot a dog that is nursing it's puppies because the dog annoyed you? That is animal cruelty and disgusting and she deserves to rot in jail.
This.

Morally killing that bitch was abominable. But it may not have been against the law, depending on what the local law is. But leaving live critters in a cage, exposed to the elements and without the means of survival is, I think against any law. And we can't get her on what is morally right, but we can on the cruel aspect of abandoning the babies.

Yep, exactly. All of the above.

Now they're found so they'll be OK. What if they weren't? Starving to death while nursing their dead mom.

Yeah, she should've shot them. That would've been nicer.
