Pets locked in cars prompt arrests, animal cruelty charges

Here's a pair of stories reporting the discovery of animals that were locked in cars, and the arrests and charges of animal cruelty that followed. The Tampa Bay Tribune reports here about a woman who purportedly locked her dog in a car in 114 degree heat while her apartment was being fumigated. She was arrested and is being charged with cruelty to animals and confinement of animals without food and water. The Miami Herald reports here on the arrest of a man who purportedly left his dog in a truck for several days. He is charged with one felony count of animal cruelty.

Why don't the police spend their time looking for real criminals instead of busting pot growers who are hurting no one? They are targeted simply because they make money outside of the system which the state does not get a cut of. Take notice that pill mills are protected because the state gets money from those sales even though the drugs involved are a thousand times deadlier.

It's a good thing that they were arrested. I really hope that they learned their lesson. Animals should be treated with respect.
