I am not sure this is even animal cruelty! For cruelty, the prosecutor would have to prove that the first shot wasn't instantly fatal and that the
and didn't just die a painless death.
My friend grew up in southern New Jersey and his father brought dogs home regularly because he was a cop and their town didn't have any Animal
My friend recalls a starving stray that his father brought home one day. The dog was a terror and would constantly snap at people, defecate in the
house, and even growled at the his father menacingly whenever he came home.
After 3 months of abuse to his family, the father said, "Enough, is enough" and he took the dog out to the backyard and shot it.
It is not animal cruelty to kill an animal.
Every year the ASPCA puts to death (IE. kills) about 6 million dogs across the nation. No one bats an eye when the ASPCA has to perform animal
cruelty. The same people will go mouth-foaming crazy the moment a "free" citizen does the same thing!
Here is an example of the kind of rational stupidity and mental gymnastics that "animal rights" causes:
"If you go out and kill a dog, skin him, dog dumping, any kind of animal cruelty case, it will be investigated to the fullest we find out you
done it we're going to put you in jail."
Both are charged with one count of cruelty to animals, which is a felony.
Dog dumping is leaving a dog somewhere because you can't take care of it.
What this moronic "defender of the peace" is essentially saying:
"It is a felony for you, the citizen, to kill dogs or abandon them. But give that dog you don't want to the ASPCA. They can legally kill it while
getting a tax exemption for being a not-for-profit!"
You are being liberated of your freedoms by manipulating your feelings!
How long until you have to use only approved dog food or its "animal cruelty"?
How long until you are required by law to have at least 2 veterinary visits a year or its "animal cruelty"?
"Animal cruelty" and "animal rights" is one of the blanket excuses used to remove our personal property freedoms (just like "civil rights" have
been used.) Animals are property. Once the legal precedent exists for restricting what a person may or may not do with their personal property, there
is no end to the limitations that may be imposed from above.
