I watched a program yesterday it was RCA in Australia. I felt sick they raided a puppy farm I have never seen so many animals in a terrible condition. Their coats were badly mated and the were filthy some were blind and there was an elderly Labrador who was heavily pregnant she look exhausted she had been used as a breeding machine she must have been about ten years old. It was terrible I felt so bad how someone could treat animals like that. They got the owner of the farm they were fined $10,000 not enough those people should be put in Jail and the key thrown away.
That's appalling LB. I don't think I could have watched that programme because it would have made me so angry. I support only one charity and that's the SSPCA because I abhor cruelty to animals.
At least in the UK offenders can be sent to prison for 6 months (the alternative being a £20,000 fine), although Parliament is considering tougher measures. However, no doubt that, as usual, these will probably never see the light of day. In most states of the US though offenders can be sentenced for up to five years.
