This Woman Rescued Abandoned Pets During Hurricane Florence. So She Got Arrested.
There isn't nearly enough in the news to piss you off on a Monday. So here's a story about a woman getting arrested for rescuing abandoned pets during Hurricane Florence (see CNN Blames Trump for Causing Hurricane Florence and Meteorologist Blames Hurricane Sensationalism on Unqualified Leftist ‘Experts’).
Yes, I get there are laws and laws need to be followed. But you can't be serious with this.
A woman in North Carolina was arrested after trying to save pets during Hurricane Florence.
With severe flooding on the way, Tammie Hedges said she took in more than two dozen pets when their owners evacuated. She runs an animal rescue called "Crazy's Claws 'n Paws," but had not yet finished building her shelter. She said she took the animals in anyways so they'd have a dry place to stay.
Tammie has also been charged with practicing medicine without a veterinary license.
Side note. The penalty for abandoning pets during a storm should be you getting chained to a fence. On a day with severe flooding.
Yes, yes, human lives are more sacred than animal lives. We get it, conservative philosopher of morality who wants us all to know how much he/she likes people. But if you have a pet, you've accepted responsibility for the life of that pet. All we're asking is for you to follow through with the responsibility you promised when you took that pet. Up to and including not leaving it to drown. This shouldn't be hard.
What also shouldn't be hard is not arresting someone who picked up the slack for those jerks who left their pets to die. Of course we're coming at this from a purely emotional place of not leaving pets to die. So maybe we're a little biased in favor of people who step up for those people who fail at basic life things, like not being a complete asshole.
