Very sad that this could happen anywhere, much less here in the Rockfish Valley.
I am so sad for my beloved County. This is a travesty. I not only grieve for the animals, I grieve for those who could have committed this act. These people are in need of dire help. Makes me love my Mr. Breeze even more. Why?
This is a disgrace. Lock them up with their food and water outside the cell so they too can look at it but not reach it. Inhumane, you say?………….my point exactly!!
