Hi I dont post actively, but I am so mad and frustrated
I have a neighbor who moved in about 2years ago. Anyway, they went and got a beagle from the local humane society, and since then, have gotten quite a few of us very upset with them. They leave the poor thing, Malcolm, tethered outside their house all the time, regardless of what the weather is like, high 90's, and now in the 30's. They have even gone on vacation, and left him outside the house this summer. They got someone to put him outside in the morning and bring him in late t night.
Their next door neighbor moved their dog's old kennel near the tether, so that Malcolm could have some shelter. Another neighbor couldn't stand it, and started walking the dog (I have only seen him being walked once), taking a chair to sit outside to keep him company, and even brought him into her house once in a while. She is an elderly woman.
Yet another neighbor (also elderly and has cancer) has gone over to replenish his water bowl and put food in his bowl when they get overturned. Early this week, she told me that she has brought a blanket out and put it into the kennel for Malcolm.
I just walked my Hav, Ralphie, up the street, and saw Malcolm, inside the kennel bundled in the blanket. The family is inside the house!!!! It is in ten 30's and there is a wind blowing. It is cold.
They do that all the time, i.e. stay inside the house and leave him outside. Poor Malcolm doesn't have much interaction with his family as far as we can see.
We have called the humane society, animal control, and the police, talked to the woman's colleagues (she is an asst. professor at one of the local university), and nothing has changed. Everytime we called, we are told that there is nothing they can do because there is food and water put out for him.
Aaaahhahhhhhh! I hate this!
Sorry, but u need to rant. I am so upset.
