WHY is it that I regularly read about dog snouts being taped or clasped shut these days?!?! I had never heard of this form of abuse for the longest time, but once I did, it seems I hear it regularly now. Just surrender the dog to a shelter. Stop these new, insane ways ways to inflict suffering!
Molly The Pig had an ending I'm sure she, and everyone else, wasn't expecting. After being rescued from a hoarding situation and nursed back to health, she was adopted out to a family in Canada with the intention that they would keep her lovingly as a pet. Well, that supposed loving family decided to not keep Molly as a pet, but to have her for dinner. I realize pigs are raised for this. I get it, but couldn't this family have gotten their pork needs met in a different manner other than adopting a pig that had already suffered and was prepped and entrusted to them to live out her life? These people signed an agreement that they would keep her as a pet! This just disturbs me. Not that they eat pork, but the uncaring dishonesty these people have displayed. While sure, it's not illegal, it sure seems immoral. I do want to recognize the family has since apologized which I hope is a sign they understand their enormous error in judgement.
