At work the other night a stray dog was brought in to us along with a car's numberplate. I asked why the numberplate was there. I assumed that it was from the car that hit the dog but couldn't understand why it would be sitting next to his cage. It turns out that the good samaritans who brought the dog in witnessed a car swerve to miss the dog, then straighten up and speed up at the last minute, aiming for a direct hit. The dog was hit so hard that the number plate fell off this loser's car so the witnesses picked it up as well as the dog. It sickened to me to think that we live in a world with people who would choose to do this. I live in the same city as this person! The dog was microchipped so we contacted the owners. It turns out the dog's name is Yowie and he's a big old beautiful Golden Retriever. Thankfully he will be ok, he's in with the specialists having surgery on his displaced hip and he has a few cuts and bruises, but he's expected to make a full recovery. I really do hope the owner takes legal action against these losers. My question, if you were in that situation and you knew that taking legal action against the perpetrators would cost you money, would you still do it? My answer is yes. I love when justice is done to animal abusers and I hate when it's not. I hope these people go down. What do you think?
