Rather than using your media clout to steamroll a local dog rescue group, when you know you did not abide by the rules, why aren’t you using your clout to intervene on behalf of the animals that seem to have been cruelly exterminated in Puerto Rico, as reported by Rory Carroll in The Guardian:
An internet campaign has been launched against animal control workers in Puerto Rico who rounded up pets and allegedly threw them to their deaths from a bridge…
Contract workers hired by the municipality seized about 50 animals from three housing projects in the town of Barceloneta to enforce a no-pet policy. Owners’ pleas and children’s tears were ignored. Some 30 strays were also rounded up.
Witnesses told local TV the workers injected the animals, saying they were being sedated for the drive to the shelter. Instead, said the witnesses, the animals were dropped from a 15-metre (50ft) bridge in the nearby town of Vega Baja.”Many were already dead when they threw them, but others were alive,” a witness, Jose Manuel Rivera, told the Associated Press. “Some climbed to the highway even though they were all battered, but about 50 animals remained there, dead.”
In case you are interested, Ellen, you can use your media clout to encourage people to sign the petition here.
