A Cocoa, FL woman was arrested on animal cruelty charges after starving her 2 year old GSD to death. She left the poor dog in a crate without food or water for two months - there was a bag of food just a couple feet from the crate. Her excuse was that her new roommate didn't like dogs. The police said she showed no remorse. It didn't explain why she didn't take the dog to a shelter. http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/news_local_orlandocrime/2008/03/dog-starves-to.html
This is one of the sadest things I read in a long time. Theres just no sense to it! All I can ask is WHY? But there will never be answer.
Rest in peace dear sweet Ella. The horrible pain you must have suffered has finaly ended. You poor girl. If only you had a chance to feel love from a real human being.
Senseless, stupid, heartless and very sad. I hope that poor baby is happy in a better place now.
I hope this idiot woman gets what she's deserves. I know it won't be through the legal system, but perhaps karma will kick in at some point in her life. Perhaps being kidnapped by a psycho PETA extremist and locking her in a cage to starve for two months? Sounds good to me.
Here is her myspace profile with pics of poor Ella (under pics, then she has an album). A friend posted it to a bulletin, she could get on the computer every single day but she could check on her dog. You seen Ella as a pup an adult. I feel so bad for this dog, my heart literally feels like it needs to throw up. You may have to log in to see them, or I can post them here. She was a beautiful WGSD.
I saw on the news this morning that Christine Abrams will have a hearing this morning on felony animal cruelty charges. Earlier reports said she was charged with with two misdemanor counts of animal cruelty so I'm not sure which report is correct.
I will never understand this... when her myspace page was up- there was all sorts of happy pics of her and Ella... what could of went wrong in her head that she starved this poor girl like this?? I just cant understand....
