    The humane society here is under a huge investigation with two workers already charged with euthanasing animals without sedating them first. Caught of video and everything...
    I hope the whole damned organisation hangs.

    The article says the injury was non life threatening - he would have been better off allowing it to heal naturally!

    Wait.... Hold on now....calm down...

    If you have an injured animal, you take it to a private vet.

    The Humane Society is not that; animals are only inventory to them, and any problem or issue animals are quickly discarded; they put-down so many perfectly healthy animals anyways, so they cannot be convinced that their protocols are wrong.

    That the man couldn't afford a vet - not their problem

    That they don't take credit-card payments over the phone - they're not in a retail/service business

    That they acted coldly and calloused - did you ever date a nurse?

    Amazingly NOW they do take credit card payments over the phone :rolleyes: Strange how fast that change happened. And I wonder if they took credit card donations over the phone previously? :33:

    I love cats and all animals. This makes my blood boil and at the same time puts a tear in my eye. So sad.
