On Cnn yesterdfay there was a story about a woman in upper state NY who left her lab outside inthe freezing weather without protection...The dog froze to death and she got arrested and went before the judge. He gave her a choice....$1200. fine or spend the night in the woods from dark to 7am She chose the woods but left because she got toooo cold. Well it seems that the judge had a police car parked to watch her and when she got home she got arrested again for violating the agreement....Now she has to pay the fine and work at the local shelter for 6 months for free..
I think she should have had to stay out in the woods as long as she left the dog out in the cold. If she did survive she would still have to pay the fine. It amazing to me how heartless these people can be.
That's horrible. I don't even leave my dog out when it's below 60 degrees and he's a Siberian Husky and loves to be out in the cold. The lab doesn't even have that thick of an undercoat. It must have been horrible for it. But it's in a better place now.
