Animal Abuse in Puerto Rico

I don’t know if this article made me more mad, sad, disgusted, or what. I guess I’m not surprised that a place that promotes cockfights would also have little respect for pets; however, I hate to make it sound like Puerto Rico is unique. We here in the continent are often no better.

One of the worst parts is, in a country where so many pet animals are killed at shelters, these pets were actually in homes with people (albeit against their lease policy) and had a chance at life.

Also disgusting is the ‘tude of the guy in charge of the shelter that allegedly killed the pets. He said:

They can’t prove that they are the same dogs that we picked up.

Good job, sir, on your choice of words. Nothing screams guilt like “you can’t prove it.”  It’s a fantastic defense from a criminal mastermind.
