I'm so pissed, so pissed....

I wake up in the morning only to hear "oh, your grandfather is charged with animal cruelty" half of what it says in it is WRONG. I'm so upset, because this lady had no right to accuse of such things. She got the animals killed, why put it in the newspaper? Now he can't have a normal life without getting looked at badly.

"hang him on the fence and the birds would eat him," he would never say that.

The lady got the reasoning for why its eye was missing. she said he did surgery on it, but actually that was wrong. Either it was the bigger dog, or smaller dog we once had there that did it. The lady called the dog a "she" as well as "benji". His name is bethoveen.

They don't realize how wrong they are, and how stupid it was of them to do them. Funny though, since my grandfather trusted the lady and gave her a braclet for carrying for them. As for his pony....he was soft-hearted, he can't handle euthanization.

Article right here: http://www.dailycommercial.com/Print...ndly/061011vet

EDIT:

Ah, this slightly calms me.

He doesn't need to pay bond yet, but they're getting as much information as possible. Also, the accusation could have been out of spite towards him since the lady as well asked him before we left towards vacation if she could "sleep in their house". He said no, so that is possible. Its a rather old, huge house that he just moved out of.

It might have been that. I'm not saying it is though.

but the miniature horse and Benji had to be euthanized on the spot.
I wonder what that means.

I admit, it was for the better but the lady should've asked for all the facts before going on and blabing to the newspaper what she assumes is factual information.

Basically, if it bleeds, it leads. Sensationalism in journalism is the only thing that can get Americans to read a story. Even though a story about a local bond election might affect their lives 1000% more, most would pass that up article and opt for the animal killings one.

Somebody fails as a journalist. That was a poorly written article and she(?) obviously didn't see that the things the lady taking care of the pets said didn't fit together. I highly doubt the SPCA said those things, and they need to be doing the investigating themselves.

I am so sorry this happened to your grandfather, and I hope they do some REAL investigating and clear him of all charges (as well as fire that reporter and get a good one who can share the real story).

leeleeleelee: Pretty saddening it has to be that way, but whats done is done. Luckily it was just a bond. And, really. It'll be just stupid if they actually continue investigating him.

ThakYuki:I don't find it likely that we'll get another story on that, but the part that sucks is it was on the newspaper we often go to, front page at that. Of course, we now know that half of the stories the newspaper will post is going to be bullshit. I laugh though when the people find information, such as how he was TOP of his class in Vet school and many can affirm that he was indeed a legit vet of his time.

Bisected8: Seems that's all newspapers write nowadays.
