OT, BUT . . .
A woman from Windsor, Ontario just plead guilty to two counts of animal cruelty after starving seven dogs (two dogs died). She was fined $1000 and was banned for LIFE from ever owning dogs again. Hopefully this will become the norm in all animal abuse cases, at least in Ontario . . ."
All I can say is, wow. That is a policy I'd like to see enforced in the US. How helpful would that be...?
