Cruelty Call

August 27th, 2005, 11:21 AM
Has anyone watched this?

It was on the other night.Hubby taped it for me.And I just finished watching it.Man did it bring tears to my eyes.

It was about the calls the SPCA gets for cruelty.Alot was done in Hamilton.But also in Hanover,Barrie and Bracebridge,Mount Forest.

They ended up taking 11 Huskies.They had lice,broken and infected teeth.They were underweight.They had sticks stuck in their nails,cataracts,eye infections.They got pampered with a bath.And were being vetted.Unfortunately 6 had to be put down.

There was a Pit tied to a truck and living in it.This in Hamilton.When they finally got a hold of the owner,he acused them of stealing his dog.He was freaking on them.He had to pay $2.200 to get the dog back.And ordered to change the living conditions of the dog.They said they would be back.

There was also a guy(in Hamilton) who had 3 GSD X's.The owner duck taped the muzzles.He surrendered one.And on a good note,she was adopted.Pam,who does the Temperment Testing on the dogs before they get adopted tested her.She passed with flying colours.But what did upset me is that they didn't do anything about this guy doing this to his dogs.They may have.

Is that the one on Animal Planet? I don't get that channel anymore but I see ads for it and they have a show that's just animal cruelty interventions..

I think I saw that show last year. Did it show a live trapped skunk being killed with the drug T-61??? If so, that's the one I saw. Nasty drug that is, hurts like h*** if not completely sedated and asleep first...wouldn't even wish that death on a skunk!!! And they call theirselves humane......

No Prin,not on Animal Planet.

Not sure what channel it was on.Hubby taped it while I was in my death bed with a migraine.Ok,not really my death bed,but it sure felt that way. :(

I'm thinking it was more or less a local channel.The only reason being is it was done in Ontario.

I know the feeling LL1.....I have been to a few calls.

With sasha and her puppies right? I didnt watch the end because it came on at 11 pm. Can you believe how that guy fed his huskies, by combining the water with the food. Looked like aweful soup.
