Wowwww. And the comittee is made if appointees instead of being voted in? If they're voted on, I would try to get as many people to hate against whoever supported that bill as I could. Or at least vote put whoever appointed them That's ridiculous. Hopinng that doesn't last long.

Just a technical question, if I'm standing on the road, can I take pictures of his pen and him? A blanket may have accidentally on purpose slid onto him and latched up... So I really don't want to be accused of trespassing.

There was a huge turnout to the meeting about the bill and it did no good. as for the new discriminating bill that one just sort of popped up. Umm you may want the blanket to "fall off" before you snap pics.

Sheesh. Why anyone would want looser animal abuse laws is beyond me. The blanket knew that it was going to be below zero with winchill tonight, but will probably fall off in the morning. Thanks so much for your help!!

When I saw the article on not following livestock animal abuse-I about fell off the couch! In this day and age, to pass a law that allows abuse w/no investigation to complaints is just heartless-I really don't get it.

Well, they drove out when I threatened to call AC. From what I can see without trespassing (is it trespassing if they got evicted?), his water buckets are all frozen and still no hay.
And, to add insult to injury, they took my Carhartt coat. That's just wrong.

They left his blanket on (thank god), but now can they say that THEY put it on? I can't take it off now, because then they would know for sure that I was on their property.
They took MY coat that I laid over my fence. I got kinda hot carrying buckets back and forth, and completely forgot about it. I'm now worried about the legal repercussions of trying to take care of him... I think it might be time to lawyer up if she presses the issue. I'm almost certain that if he went another day or two without water, he would have some serious complications, if not die.

Unfortunately you need to stop taking care of him. You are trespassing and you are not the owner. If you blanket, water and feed him not only can they sue you - but when Animal Control or somebody goes out - they will deem the situation adequate because he is being cared for. It doesn't matter who's doing it to them.

I know it's hard, I've been in the position before. You need to stop going over there and stop doing things for him. Hound the police, hound animal control and call a news station. That will be better for him in the long run.

Yes, AC was called last night and the police are being called today. Which should have been the first thing I did :-/
