The depth of my hatred and disgust for the human race gets worse every single day. I cannot comprehend the pain & suffering this poor dog went through at the hands of a human being; nigh monster!! The sick minded POS that abused Laura, is not fit enough to scrape shit off shoes with his/her tongue; never mind breathe the same air as normal beings! I hope whoever did this is found & quickly, they need to pay big time! Evil generally seeks its own benefit at the expense of others and is based on general malevolence!! Whoever did this I hope they suffer a life of pain & abuse; it’s nothing less than they deserve!! PLEASE if anyone recognizes this dog, or knows who it belongs to, please contact your local police or http://www.lasthopek9.org or https://www.facebook.com/LoveForLaura

“Kudos to those taking care of Laura; I know they are doing everything possible to return Laura to good health…please see Laura’s Facebook page for updates etc!”

PLEASE NOTE VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES BELOW – VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED

Laura was scheduled to die at the Brooklyn Animal Control Center in NYC. A fate that so many face, but to think that Laura almost didn’t make it out of there is unfathomable.

Volunteers reached out to Last Hope K9 Rescue in Boston, Massachussetts to intervene and they immediately took actionhttp://www.lasthopek9.org/donate/

At the vets, Last Hope K9 Rescue learned that Laura had human bite marks on several areas of her body. She presented with redness and swelling around her eyes, wounds on her front and hind legs and mouth.

While these wounds are horrific enough, the depth of Laura’s abuse was much deeper. What was initially thought to be a mammary tumor and prolapsed uterus ended up being a sexually transmitted disease.

During her examination (by a male vet), Laura tucked her head in behind his neck and let out a loud sigh as he examined her backside.The doctor said it was like she was almost embarrassed. Despite the pain she must have been in, Laura never snapped or acted out, she just patiently sat there. To imagine that she endured this abuse for an extended period of time is no consolation.

Even with this level of repeated, unimaginable abuse, Laura is forgiving. She wants nothing more than the love and acceptance of people, despite the injustices bestowed upon her for who knows how long. Laura’s recovery and treatment will take at least 6 month.

In the shelter, Laura’s abuse was evident, but it wasn’t until she was examined by our vet that we truly came to understand all that Laura has endured. For Laura to be as loving and trusting as she is with humans, speaks volumes to the kind of dog she is.

She is currently in treatment for her conditions and her emotional healing has begun in her foster home. Laura has touched the lives of so many just by being her sweet-natured self. She deserves the very best and now she will get it.:-https://www.facebook.com/LoveForLaura

 Unbelievable and disgusting case of animal abuse: Dog RAPED by humans and left for dead

LAURA WAS RAPED & ABUSED! Here is her story. Please consider to contribute to her fundraiser Lisa Anne Bakal wrote: “Horror upon horrors happen daily to these innocent dogs. Laura was another stray pit bull who entered the Brooklyn shelter.

They thought the growth on her was mammary tumors. When she hit the kill list, a good friend of mine who is a volunteer did all she could to get Laura’s life saved. She was one of those dogs who just “get you”. Last Hope K9 Rescue stepped in and saved her at the 11th hour.

Once they got her to their vet, the real horror was discovered. She put her head down and sighed as the “male” vet went behind her to examine her. It turns out those “tumors” weren’t tumors at all. She was repeatedly RAPED by a HUMAN and she has a sexually transmitted disease. She has HUMAN bite marks all over her little body.

She will need 6 months of heavy medical treatment to rid her of the STD she contracted from this filthy parasite who raped her. My eyes will never be dry, the tears are never-ending. Please follow her page on FB “Love for Laura” and the wonderful Last Hope K9 Rescue for updates.

The Boston Globe’ charge against bulls and praised the veto de Catalunya to the party

Comments Off on The Boston Globe’ charge against bulls and praised the veto de Catalunya to the party

“Please note this has been translated from Spanish”

The debate over bullfighting has come to Massachusetts (USA). The newspaper The Boston Globe has one devoted to publishing in which charges the “grotesque spectacle” , praised the veto imposed on the run in Catalonia and the Canary Islands and suggests that Spain should disappear this tradition.

The bullfighter Manuel Jesus ‘El Cid’, in Las Ventas, on May 22. JuanJo Martin | Reuters

In his editorial, ‘The Boston Globe’ considered, noting the drop in the number of runs and the decline of the Spanish fans for the bulls, that currently “there is no romance or honor” on the run.The paper notes that there is a “fight” but “torture an animal to enjoy the mass”. And remember that even a declared admirer of the bulls as the American writer Ernest Hemingway was “honest enough” to recognize that what fascinated him the party was “the spectacle of death”.

“THE TIME HAS PASSED BULLS”

The journal welcomes Spanish that increasingly reject “as entertainment” and stresses that the parliaments of Catalonia and the Canary Islands banned bullfighting and that these are no longer issued on public television.

By contrast, notes that the  Spanish Government declare bulls weigh cultural interest . Given this possibility, the newspaper of Boston takes sides and nostalgic suggests that the bulls should “accept the reality”, which in the opinion of the newspaper is that “the bulls are inhumane and their time has passed.” “Spain’s contributions to Western culture have been many glorious, but the grotesque spectacle of torturing bulls to death for amusement is not one of them,” he concludes. “Well said, its way past time this horrific spectacle of killing for fun & family entertainment; be banned altogether!”

Menino Pledges Strict Muzzle Law On Pit Bulls

Comments Off on Menino Pledges Strict Muzzle Law On Pit Bulls

A day after police shot one of two loose pit bulls they say “terrorized” an East Boston neighbourhood  attacking a boy and killing a cat, Mayor Thomas M. Menino vowed to resurrect a city pit bull muzzling rule that will be fixed next month when a state law takes effect that bans breed-specific legislation.

“We’re going to continue to press for legislation that will deal with the issues of putting pit bulls in the city of Boston. … They do need a special law. … Pit bulls have that little strain in them that are vicious,” Menino said, calling it “ridiculous” that state legislators acted to override the Hub’s 2004 pit bull ordinance and similar lawsin Lowell, Winthrop and elsewhere.

ROUNDED UP: Mayor Thomas M. Menino vows strict rules on pit bulls despite the current law getting cleared off the books on Nov. 1. Below, a pit bull is loaded into a van after going on a rampage Friday in East Boston.

The city’s doomed pit bull control law requires owners to register their dogs, muzzle them in public, post “beware of dog” signs and limit them to two per household.

Boston Animal Control Director Mark Giannangelo could not say yesterday whether the two pit bulls that escaped a Sumner Street apartment Friday were registered.

Bruin, the dog police shot, and the other dog, Max, which was corralled by cops, are being held until a city hearing to determine their fate, which under state law could be as severe as having the dogs killed or as light as having them returned to their owner.

Backers of the law that revamped state animal control codes, which goes into effect Nov. 1, argue Boston’s pit bull muzzle rule has not reduced dog bites.

“The ordinance is still in place and didn’t prevent this incident. Breed-specific ordinances don’t work,” said Kara Holmquit, the MSPCA’s director of advocacy. “To truly prevent dog bites, a comprehensive dangerous dog law that is well-enforced needs to be embraced.”

State Sen. Patricia Jehlen (D-Somerville), who sponsored the law and called Friday’s attack “horrible,” said there are provisions in the state law to deal with dangerous dogs that don’t discriminate by breed.

“I really want to protect people against dangerous dogs. I believe what we did is a good solution for that,” Jehlen said.

But City Councilor Robert Consalvo, who penned the city’s pit bull law and now may seek a home-rule petition to exempt the Hub from the ban on breed-specific laws, said a pit bull’s vice-like jaws and history of being bred as a fighting dog make it more dangerous.

“I get that poodles bite. But if a poodle or beagle bites me, I can defend myself,” he said. “A pit bull’s a much more aggressive attack.”

Pit Bull Shot After Teen Bitten, Cat Killed

Comments Off on Pit Bull Shot After Teen Bitten, Cat Killed

 

One of two rampaging pit bulls was shot by cops in East Boston yesterday after it bit a 14-year-old boy in the buttocks, mauled and killed a cat and frightened residents — all just weeks before a city law requiring the breed to be muzzled in public will be revoked.

BITING CRIME: Animal Control officers and Boston police respond in East Boston yesterday, after two pit bulls struck fear in the neighbourhood, injuring a teenage boy and killing a cat.

“These two dogs terrorized the neighbourhood … Theyhad already lashed out and bit a young boy and a cat. If we didn’t take a shot at the dog, who knows who else would have been bit,” Boston Police Superintendent William Evans said at the scene.Boston City Councilor Rob Consalvo, who drafted the city’s pit bull control law six years ago, said the city should brace for more pit mull mayhem as the state’s new animal cruelty law goes into effect Nov. 1, wiping muzzling rules off the books.

“This is a scene that’s going to get replayed over and over again when we don’t have an ordinance in place that gives police and animal control the tools to control this,” Consalvo said.

The new animal rights bill signed into law by Gov. Deval Patrick blocks municipalities from creating any “breed specific” rules.

The Hub’s lame duck law requires owners to register pit bulls, keep dogs muzzled in public and post “beware of dog” signs on their property. It also bars residents from housing more than two pit bulls. Similar laws in Lowell, Canton, Winthrop and elsewhere will also be nullified.

Yesterday, two pit bulls — Max and Bruinchewed and clawed their way through a screen and jumped out an open first-floor window of their owner’s Sumner Street apartment while the couple was dining out. The dogs then went on their rampage.

After police shot and wounded Bruin at the corner of Maverick and Cottage streets, the dog ran a block away and had to be cornered by cops in a driveway. Max ran home.

Louis Gizzi, 85, was sweeping his deck at his Everett Street home when the dogs ran up to him.

“It snarled at me. He came after me. One dog spotted the cat and chased him out of the yard. He killed him. He shook him so hard I thought it was a rag doll at first,” said Rizzi, who used his broom to smack one of the pit bulls in the snout. “If it wasn’t for the broom, I think they would have attacked me.”

Calvin Clemons, 24, and his wife, Amanda Bright, 22, questioned why the police had to shoot their dog.

“I know he wouldn’t hurt anybody. He’s only a puppy,” said a teary-eyed Bright, 22. “Everybody thinks just because it’s a pit pull, he’s a vicious dog.

Neighbour John Rizzo, 26, disagreed, saying the pit bulls have gone on the run before.

“They came up to our porch barking, pinning my wife inside with a 2-month-old baby in her arms,” he said. “They are menacing, big dogs … Without muzzles and leashes these dogs can’t be controlled. They need to reconsider that law.”

Dorchester man sentenced to six months in jail for mistreating his dog

Comments Off on Dorchester man sentenced to six months in jail for mistreating his dog

A Dorchester man has been sentenced to six months in jail for neglecting his dog to the point where it was in such poor condition it had to be euthanized, Suffolk prosecutors said today.

Dana Thomson, 34, pleaded guilty in Dorchester District Court last week to two counts of cruelty to animals on charges of failing to provide food or medical care to his dog, Braun.

Judge Robert Baylor sentenced him to six months in jail, plus 2 1/2 years if he gets in trouble again within three years of being released, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said in a statement.

After his release, Thomson must report regularly to the probation department, submit to random urine tests proving that he remains free of drugs and alcohol, and perform 50 hours of community service.

Prosecutors said Thomson brought Braun inside after Boston Animal Control officers went to his home for a complaint regarding the injured dog in the back yard. He left Braun in the basement, and a family member transported it to the MSPCA-Angell Animal Hospital two days later.

Veterinary staff said Braun was emaciated from lack of food and had more than a dozen open wounds, including one large sore that was infected to the point where muscle and nerve tissue were exposed.

He was euthanized. A necropsy found no illness or disease that would have caused the wounds.

“The only explanation was prolonged neglect,” Conley said in the statement.

Thomson told MSPCA law enforcement officers that he noticed Braun’s extreme weight loss and lethargy, but he continued to only feed him table scraps due to financial problems.

“It was a heartbreaking case,” Conley said. “This was a creature that should have had a long and healthy life but its last weeks were spent in hunger and pain.”

Heroic Pit bull injured after saving owner from oncoming train near Boston

Comments Off on Heroic Pit bull injured after saving owner from oncoming train near Boston

An 8-year-old Pit bull named Lilly is being credited with saving her owner from being struck and killed by a freight train late last week.

The harrowing situation took place on May 3 in Shirley, Mass. after Lilly’s guardian collapsed on the train tracks.

According to a story published today at My Fox Boston , the train’s engineer witnessed Lilly pulling her owner, Christine Spain, off of the tracks. Despite efforts to stop the train, Lilly was struck and suffered serious injuries.

The impact from the massive train de-gloved Lily‘s right foot and fractured her pelvis. The heroic dog also suffered several internal injuries. Unfortunately, the veterinarians were not able to save Lilly’s injured leg.

Thanks to Lilly’s amazing efforts, the woman who collapsed on the tracks did not suffer any injuries.

According to the report, even when first responders arrived to the scene, Lilly stayed by the side of her unconscious guardian.

Right now, Lilly is recovering from her injuries at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. Lilly’s veterinary expenses are high and a fund has been established to help raise what is necessary to facilitate her full recovery.

An absolutely amazing rescue effort by an extraordinarily devoted dog. Good girl Lilly.
