I too admire anyone who helps with animal suffering - you just have to use your brains over your heart and/or self righteous ways otherwise you may just end up hurting them even more.
Agreed but as L4H said most rescuers tend to be very passionate about what they do and can only see the animals in need and don't think of the consequences of their actions.

I definitely agree that Tre Smith should have realized that representing himself as an OSPCA investigator after he was suspended, was very wrong. I'm sure he had other options if he had thought about it, like notifying those who were still investigators of any situations he became aware of.

It would be far better if they hired outsiders to do the investigation, this situation only makes them look bad too. Everyone now knows of the controversy between the two agencies, and the longer the OSPCA investigates the worse they look to the public. It is too bad because the animals are the ones that are losing while they throw stones at each other.
