I usually have the greatest of respect for the members of our military, but this guy ought to have his a$$ kicked! He had this tiny dog and for some reason swung it around by his hind leg, beating it against the wall. He beat it horribly and left it for dead. Fortunately, someone found it and took it to the vet. It was on the news tonight, and it was so awful. You could see the pain in this poor creature's eyes. He could not understand why he was hurting so. He is in good hands now, my vet, and will be looked after there until he is ready to go to his new home. There are people begging to adopt him, He is SO cute, even with all his injuries. The Marine is being charged with felony animal abuse, and misdemeanor abandonment. His ugly face has been plastered all over town, so he can't go anywhere,even if they let him out of jail. The Marine Corps takes this sort of thing seriously, so I doubt he will be getting off lightly. I am sure the first part of his punishment will be forfeiture of pay intil the vet is paid, even though the vet said he would care for him anyway. The Carolina Animal Protection League is in on it now, and they are tenacious about animal abusers being punished. I am trying to find out who to email with a request that this idiot be punished as severely as possible. I'll post it as soon as I find it.
