That is unbelievable that there is no charge of animal cruelty. Did I read that correctly?

Thank you for sharing this. We, as the voice of pets, need to keep speaking and keep sharing with our politicians that this is totally unacceptable. I am floored and I am glad you put this out there.

Yvonne, It is sad. And we do have to look at the link between pet and child abuse. If the father of that girl would do this to her dog in front of her, can you imagine how he treats his daughter, his wife, and any other kids they have? And that child will be scarred for life. Living with that kind of monster for a dad translates to a troubled life.

Un freakin' believable!
