'Emaciated, poorly kept' animals allegedly found on Alexander property

posted by Billie Owens in alexander, animal cruelty.

A woman who went to an Alexander residence to buy rabbits called dispatch to complain about the conditions she claimed she found on Walker Road. According to the caller, there were lots of animals on the premises that appeared to be emaciated and uncared for. She also noted that a stinking odor was coming from the house.

I do hope Law Enforcement went to this home to see what the story is. Why do we have so many people in this area that should NOT OWN PETS!!!! I do hope someone gets to the bottom of this and that Howard you follow up for us. Please....... Thanks

Bob and Lisa, I can understand your frustrations and outrage; however, until the laws are given some sharper teeth, these POSs will only be assessed a fine, and possibly probation.

Until the laws are changed to acknowledge animals as more than just property, this is all that will ever happen.

It's unfortunate, as the ones who suffer are the ones who give us unconditional love.
