Because they have a script. Because they've spent years rehearsing it.
"I think the HSUS is now permanently on my shit list[...] What utterly scummy, disgusting, hypocritical behavior."Because Sue Sternberg is their pit bull "expert."
Because they don't know squat about dog behavior, and don't care to learn.
Because ACOs and/or shelter workers in Wilkes County, NC were forced to kill 146 dogs, including some 60 puppies, in a single day. Because a foster home that had nursed sick puppies to health was ordered to return the pups for killing. Because the pup in the post below never had a chance.
And because Wayne Pacelle, John Goodwin and other HSUS apparatchiks didn't "euthanize" a single dog themselves. Wayne and John didn't even have to watch. Michael Vick, take note: you are not in their league when it comes to killing dogs.
Who gets to do the awful deed; the dirty work? The low-wage shelter workers who have no say in the matter; usually the same people who have cared for these dogs, who've gotten to know the dogs and have seen for themselves how truly wonderful most of them are. How are they feeling right now? I think I know. [Bad Rap]Mighty "humane" of you in every respect, wasn't it, HSUS? How proud and happy you must be. Here's one you missed:
Former Vick fighting dog Hector just aced his Therapy Dog certification. [Screen grab of Hector with Roo Yori in July 2008.]
