Police Chief Resigns After Caging Family’s Puppy and Killing it at Shooting Range

 

https://i0.wp.com/thefreethoughtproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/cop-kills-caged-puppy.jpg
Sparta, MO — Police Chief Andrew Spencer resigned this week after it was revealed that he shot and killed an innocent dog that was in a cage and meant no one any harm. To make matters even worse, he took the puppy to a firing range and killed it there because he did not want to deal with finding its home.

Spencer found the dog and managed to get it into a cage using a catcher pole. He then wrote in his report that he had planned to take the dog to a shelter where it would be “destroyed,” but then he got another call about a car accident so he decided to do it himself.

The report said that he had planned to go to “the cheapest vet to destroy the dog at the cost of the city.” However, the report continued “Due to the higher priority call and the imminent destruction of the dog, I decided it was best to destroy the dog and respond to the accident.”

After the fact, Spencer claimed that the dog was charging at people in the neighborhood. However, he said that he did not believe that the dog bit anyone, otherwise he would have had it taken to the vet and tested for rabies.

Dog ‘walks 200 miles to find woman who nursed her back to health after hit-and-run accident’

Dog 'walks 200 miles to find woman who nursed her after hit-and-run'
Shavi and Nina (Picture: CEN)

 

Shavi was left to die by the side of the road after the crash, in southern Russia’s Rostov Oblast region last winter.

She had been living on the streets as a stray when the driver hit her, and then just drove away, Russian media reported.

He left Shavi to die in agony with two broken legs by the side of the road, where she was shivering and freezing.

But luckily, two passersby saw the animal and took her to the vet, before appealing online for someone who could care for her as she recovered.

Pic shows: Nina Baranovskaya. A dog in Russia walked for nearly 200 miles to find the good Samaritan who saved its life. The stray dog called Shavi was hit by a car in Rostov-on-Don in Russia. All of her legs were broken as a result. Nina Baranovskaya found the dog on a street, took her home, paid for veterinary treatment and nursed her back to health. But Nina was unable to care for her longterm due to her job and family committments, so she found the pet a new home some 200 miles away. Shavi was well cared for - but it seems her heart pined for her saviour and she decided to go walkabout to find her. Last week Nina was walking on the street and suddenly she felt something touching her on her leg. And she was shocked when she found it was the dog she saved who had made the journey back to her. Nina burst into tears when she saw the dog she rescued last winter. Experts estimate it must have taken her over a week to walk back to Rostov. Now Nina is looking for a larger flat so the duo can be together forever. (ends)
Nina Baranovskaya answered the appeal (Picture: CEN)

Retired K9 Spared From Likely Death After Community Rallies To Save Him

Let’s hope Rex gets the retirement he deserves.

A retired police dog who was likely destined for euthanasia has been spared after animal lovers condemned the police department’s decision to send him to a municipal shelter.

Facebook/Operation Save K-9 Rex

The 9-year-old Belgian Malinois, Rex, had served with the Albuquerque Police Department since 2013, and spent several years in the military before that, the Albuquerque Journal reports. Rex was present during the shooting of homeless man James Boyd that led to criminal charges for two APD officers, and appears in video of the incident.

When Rex’s handler, Scott Weimersckirch, retired, the APD said Rex was too old and too bonded to Weimersckirch to be transferred to another handler. But the officer couldn’t adopt Rex due to concerns that the dog would be a threat to his young child, APD spokeswoman Celina Espinoza told local news station KRQE.

A city shelter took Rex in, but the APD said Monday it was likely the dog would be euthanized, since his military and police background would make finding a suitable home difficult.

Veterinarian's cruel admission
May 2, 2014

According to Thursday’s publication of the Star-Telegram, the Fort Worth, Texas, veterinarian who was arrested after being accused of keeping a dog alive for his blood, has admitted that there are more dogs who suffered the same fate.

Dr. Lou Tierce, 71, of the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic, told officials that there were actually five dogs who were kept alive at his clinic after their owners asked for them to be euthanized. Investigators found a virtual house of horrors inside of the clinic when they conducted a raid earlier this week.

Three dogs discovered inside of the facility earlier this week were in “such decrepit shape” that they had to be humanely euthanized. Investigators also found bugs, unsecured medications and exam rooms littered with trash, laundry and paperwork. One of the most disturbing finds was the doctor’s own dog, who was on an exam room floor – court documents state that the dog was missing a leg, had two dislocated shoulders and another dislocated leg.

Veterinarian accused of keeping dog alive for blood surrenders to authorities

According to Thursday’s publication of the Star-Telegram, the Fort Worth, Texas, veterinarian who has been accused of keeping a dog alive in order to utilize the dog’s blood, has surrendered to the authorities.

Dr. Lou Tierce, 71, of the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic, surrendered at the Tarrant County Jail on Wednesday evening – he was arrested and then released after posting bail. An arrest warrant was issued for the veterinarian, for a charge of animal cruelty, after a couple came forward with a complaint accusing the doctor of telling them that their dog had been euthanized months ago, when the dog was actually being kept alive, supposedly in order for the clinic to utilize him for blood transfusions.

Dr. Tierce denies the allegations and he has pointed the finger of blame on a disgruntled former employee – the woman who quit and then told Jamie and Marian Harris that their dog, “Sid,” was not dead, but instead, very much alive inside of a cage at the vet clinic.

The couple managed to get inside of the veterinary hospital to retrieve their dog – they claim that another veterinarian later examined Sid and told them that the dog appeared to have been used repeatedly for blood transfusions. The Harrises have stated that they were advised by Dr. Tierce to have the dog euthanized because he was suffering from a degenerative spinal condition.

Texas vet clinic accused of stealing dog, using him for blood transfusions

 

According to Tuesday’s WFAA News, a Fort Worth, Texas, veterinary clinic is being investigated because a couple claims that their dog, who was supposed to have been euthanized months ago, was being kept alive and used for blood transfusions.

Months ago, Jamie and Marian Harris claim that they had asked for their dog “Sid,” to be put down at the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic because they were told that the dog suffered from a degenerative spinal condition. On April 21, the couple learned that something was amiss when a veterinary technician, who had worked at the clinic, called them to let them know that Sid was still alive.

Dog shot and killed by Sulphur police officer

April 30, 2014

According to Tuesday’s KPLC 7 News, a Sulphur, La., police officer fatally shot a 14-month-old dog on Monday morning after being called out to investigate a call about two suspicious men who were trespassing.

Though the police officer has stated that the dog bit him, a witness to the traumatic scene has a different version of what took place at the parking lot of the Southwest Daily News. The young dog, named “Arzy Kensington,” had been tied to a fence near a box truck which Brandon Carpenter, 28, and Logan Laliberte, 21, had taken shelter in when it started to rain.

According to Eric Midkiff, circulation manager at the Southwest Daily News, the officer who had been called out to the scene to investigate a possible trespassing, interacted briefly with the dog before firing the fatal shot. Midkiff described what he saw to the Huffington Post:

The dog was rubbing up against the cop,

He would rub the dog’s back and then push him away. All of a sudden, he just jumped down and shot the dog in the head.”

He added:

That dog did not bite that officer,”

“The dog was wagging his tail, his tongue was hanging out.”

Harley and Teddy, "caped crusaders" raising awareness about puppy mills.
April 24, 2014

Those of us in the animal world are well aware of the atrocities of puppy mills.

The filthy conditions, lack of clean water, food, and veterinary care, the loneliness and neglect the animals suffer. Which is why it’s wonderful to hear of puppy mill dogs who are rescued and get to spend the rest of their lives in a loving home.

Two such survivors, Harley, 13, and Teddy, 8, are doing more than enjoying their freedom, however. On April 26, they’re leaving for a trip (not their first) with National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) to save other puppy mill dogs. This Midwest mission, dubbed ‘Harley to the Rescue,‘ has a goal of saving more than 50 dogs.

‘Harley to the Rescue’ started as a campaign to raise $2,500 to fund one rescue of 25-30 dogs. As of today, these brave Chihuhuas have raised over $150,000 and have rescued 265 dogs from mills. Watch video (Here).

At first glance, rescuers thought they were dealing with an aged chihuahua who had lost his teeth because of neglect. Tragically, the pooch has been rushed to the veterinarian on Saturday evening; his rescuers state this dog is less than two-years-old.

Rescuers believed tiny little Nemo has been badly abused and his teeth have been knocked out.

“Only a monster would knock the teeth out of a helpless little chihuahua,” stated Kathleen Godwin of Ithaca, New York. “It’s beyond horrible to think of what this poor little one must have suffered and the pain he must be in now.”

Ayo has been charged with 8 counts of animal cruelty.
Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department

Leslie Ayo, the owner of Heavens Gate Kennels located in Lawrenceville, was arrested on Thursday and faces eight counts of animal cruelty for the inhumane tail docking of eight Rottweiler puppies reports the gwinnettdailypost.com.

Ayo was hired by a local woman living on Deer Oaks Drive to de-worm, de-claw, and dock the tails of her eight recently born puppies. A witness watched as Ayo used an instrument that looked like a pair of scissors to cut the pups’ tails. Nothing was used to stop the bleeding; one puppy later died at a local veterinarian’s office. The vet then called Gwinnett County Animal Control to report the cruelty.

The witness stated the puppies all screamed in pain. No anesthetics were used.

On Ayo’s Facebook page for Heavens Gate Kennels, she states:

“I gained valuable experience and knowledge as an S.P.C.A Animal Caretaker, Zoo Volunteer, Vet Technician, owner of a successful pet supply boutique, and Director of a No-Kill Dog Rescue. I am a breeder who knows the industry from the bottom all the way to the top and it shows in the quality and temperaments of my animals.”

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association:…..
