An estimated 1,200 dogs at a Kansas Kennel were euthanized after an outbreak in Wyoming of the highly contagious disease distemper was linked to a large scale breeding operation.
The person believed to be responsible had been sited for several violations prior to this but who in their right mind breeds 1.200 dogs?
The thing that I find to be completely unacceptable is that this breeder will be allowed to get back into business in six months if he meets stringent requirements.
Should not this “breeder” face the same penalties as Michael Vick? I’m sure the 24 puppy owners of the dogs that came down with distemper would agree as would the 1200 dogs that were killed.
What, you want to give him an NFL contract?
*Raising his leg on Michael Vick*
Prof. Chester - Of course NOT!!! Michael Vick was convicted of his crimes and sent to prison. He also had to pay huge fines. This person is receiving a small fine and will be allowed to resume breeding operations in six months. There was no mention of prison or even a trial.
This is backyard breeding at it's worse but apparently the authorities are not handling it in the same manner as they do with dog fighting. In both cases helpless animals have suffered and lost their lives due to human greed.
Puffy, I don't think Vick was punished enough, is all I'm barking. After a short jail sentence and fine, he csme back to football and played again. A lifetime ban or teams refusing to hire the poor example for a human being might have meant more to him... He tortured and killed dogs. Both people are wrong and should have serious punishments.
And Mommy read that Vick 'the torturer' is wanting to get another dog as a pet for his child! Any judge that allows that should be disrobed!
