Man's Best Friend - - Marooned

And I mean "marooned" in its literal sense, as in abandoned on a desert island.

A casual act of cruelty can take a "village" of volunteers to mend. Take the case of a small beagle abandoned this fall on an Intracoastal Waterway island in New Hanover County. Jeannie Mintz, who is president of Saving Animals During Disasters, wrote about it.

Click the link to read the rest. The dog, a beagle, had been abandoned on a "spoil" island, i.e., an island made by dredging operations, and was starving. It took over a week to trap the dog, because it was so mistrusting of humans, an indication it had been abused. Now it's been adopted by a presumably loving owner.

Grrrrr...Jail for those who abandoned. Lost key. Society suffers no loss.

Ya, someone needs to be taken out and shot in the knees.

To hell with the knees, just shoot em... Anybody that does that to a pet doesn't deserve to live!
