Abuse To Animals Is Intolerable

Friday, December 13, 2019

In a recent article titled “McKamey Animal Services Seeks Information Pertaining to Dog Fight Victim”, McKamey Animal Center is urging people to share any information regarding a recent dog fight victim that was left abandoned with multiple serious injuries. Abuse to animals is something that I cannot tolerate in the slightest.

My heart goes out to the precious little dog that was so brutally injured and left to die in a remote location. Dog fighting is a horrific sport where dogs are encouraged to fight and kill other dogs.

I applaud McKamey Animal Center for doing all they could to help the precious dog and for their efforts to find and convict the person/s responsible for this.

Participating in dog fighting is considered a felony offense in all 50 states (Dogfighting, n.d.). However, President Trump also signed a bill on Nov. 25 called the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act which makes cruelty towards animals a “…federal crime punishable with fines and up to seven years in prison” (Zaveri, 2019).

We, as a community, need to work together to find the individual/s involved with this cruelty act and hold them accountable for what they did to this poor little dog as well as countless other precious dogs.

If you have any information regarding who may be responsible for this, please contact the local authorities or McKamey Animal Center.

Tuesday Night's Debate

Okay, I expected today's opinion section to be filled with the pros and cons of last night's televised presidential debate. Maybe because it's not is because people are still reeling from it.

Was It Coincidence?

Was it coincidence that Bob Woodward’s book appeared before the first debate? No, it was really a trap that fed into a Biden narrative that Trump is responsible for all the deaths caused by the virus. Joe claimed that fallacy in an interview with Anderson Cooper, of course, with zero fact checking by CNN. Was it coincidence that the New York Times printed what they claim was ... (click for more)
