Comments Off on Puppies dumped in a box outside San Antonio ACS, investigators need help

“Somebody must know who these puppies belong to, imagine if they had died from the cold; could you live with that on your conscience? If they have done it once, they will do it again…please help find those born without a heart & make them pay! Everybody knows there are charity’s that will take your dogs if you can’t care for them. To simply leave them in a box outside a shelter isn’t good enough, they could have died due to weather conditions; it’s just a cowardly way out, for someone who doesn’t give a SxxT about living sentient beings…& it makes me so fxxxxxg mad!!

SAN ANTONIO, TexasAnimal cruelty investigators are asking for the public’s help to find the person responsible for dumping puppies outside Animal Care Services.

Friday morning, a veterinary technician discovered the puppies in a cardboard box with a plastic bag tied around it. ACS named them the seven dwarfs after the Snow White fairytale.

“Leaving them outside, unattended, and nobody is around. And the weather conditions are bad where they could potentially die,” said Audra Houghton, ACS field operation supervisor.

In 2014, ACS issued more than 5,000 citations for animal cruelty and sent 42 cases to the district attorney‘s office. Animal cruelty investigators said San Antonio can do better. They said it comes down to public education.

“That’s probably what the biggest issue is. We have owners who can’t necessarily afford to care for their pets and don’t think they can afford to. Those are all things that can be remedied. So our officers try very hard to educate the public,” said Houghton

Abandoning animals is considered a misdemeanor with a four thousand dollar fine and up to a year in jail. The puppies appear to be two-month old Spaniel blends. ACS says the puppies are not old enough to be adopted yet. ACS asks anyone who has information about the person who left the animals to contact the organization at (210) 207-4PET (4738).

Oregon Zoo lion tries to reach baby boy – Video

Comments Off on Oregon Zoo lion tries to reach baby boy – Video

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) –

A lion approaches a young child sitting on the ground. The lion scratches, claws and lunges at the little guy, but never leaves a mark on him.

That’s because a very thick sheet of glass separates the lions from the visitors at the Oregon Zoo.

A Bend family shot incredible video of the unique interaction on a recent trip to the zoo.

“I thought it was funny. I wasn’t worried or anything,” the boy’s mother, Heather. “I mean you can see the glass is like inches thick.”

Jack, 13, is dressed in zebra stripes, and she thinks that touched a nerve in Kya the lion.

Heather said she didn’t realize the significance of the stripes until a friend pointed it out after the trip.

“That must be it. Because it was the lions and the other animals came up to us too,” she said.

PHOTOSIs it a baby zebra? Or just a baby?

Oregon Zoo workers say the lions are always interested in their young visitors at the zoo, adding that the exhibit is completely safe, as the video proves.

While Kya was certainly interested in the boy, the feeling didn’t appear to be mutual. In fact, the child seemed pretty unfazed by the whole thing.

A voice on the tape encouraged the boy at one point to look at the lion and say, “Hi kitty, kitty.”
