Dog stabbed in PetSmart after man claims it attacked his dog

be-their-sound:

This is outrageous. Charges should be brought against this man. Eyewitnesses said that Clara was not shaking the other dog, and the other dogs owner stabbed her AFTER the fight was broken up.

Also, I wish there was more information on the extent of her injuries, and why they decided euthanizing was the best option. I have a feeling it wasn’t entirely because of her injuries. 

A somewhat better article here. But it’s not adding up, misinformation everywhere. 

“They guy was just screaming ‘f***ing pit bull, why are you even allowed to have these dogs?’” Reeves said, and he was pushing and kicking and “making things worse.”

“By the time Mike got up there, he had already pulled out the knife and stabbed her once or twice. I had my arms around the dog,” Reeves said, trying to stop the man from stabbing her.

Wohler came around to the other side and had his hands in Clara’s mouth, trying to get her to let go.

“Clara wasn’t clamped down on the dog. Mike was able to put his hands in her mouth,” Reeves said. “It wasn’t an attack; they were just standing there. It could have easily been broken up,” she said. But instead, the man took out his knife.

“He wasn’t stabbing like he was trying to save his dog. He was stabbing trying to kill this dog,” Reeves said. There was tremendous force to the blows, she said.

rebathenerd replied to your post “When you go to Six Flags, you are supporting animal cruelty.”

The six flags in Texas don’t have any animals

That doesn’t matter. The Six Flags company owns them all. Going to any Six Flags location means you are giving money to people who send animals to labs, hunting reserves and keeps them in inhumane conditions. 

You can find another amusement park to go to. But in the end, people riding a rollercoaster is much less important than the lives of animals suffering at these parks. 

Help Sanctuary Save Abused & Neglected Farm Animals

One of the best no-kill shelter networks near me is having a fund raiser so they can open their Middletown, NY location to horse and other farm animals in need.

Please consider donating to Pets Alive!, or if you can’t, don’t forget to reblog.

I love this shelter. My friend adopted his first cat from their location closer to me. They have a wonderful network of volunteers and workers and I am absolutely thrilled that they are hoping to help some of our bigger, and more forgotten, friends. 

“ Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person. ”

Urgent - Please Spotlight:

I regret to tell you that Christina Fonthes - a dear friend and organiser of Rainbow Noir has been held against her will in The Congo - she was on a family holiday with her mother who has decided to have Christina ‘cured’ of her sexuality. 

Christina has managed to escape from her aunt’s house and is currently hiding out with a friend. She has access to internet and has been communicating with us via email. The next available flight is 2nd September - 5 days away! Chris needs help and protection from the British Embassy in Congo but her mother has reported her missing and therefore we need to get in contact with both the UK Home Office and UK embassy in Congo to let them know that she is in danger and that her mother is lying/the one endangering her life!!

PLEASE SHARE THIS ON ALL YOUR NETWORKS. CALL, EMAIL, TWEET the British embassy on behalf of Christina - the more we call, the more attention it will bring to her case and hopefully they will act quicker in getting Christina to a safe place. 

HER MOTHER HAS HER PASSPORT AND TRAVELING DOCUMENTS!

CHRISTINA’S LIFE IS IN DANGER. PLEASE DO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. 

If you can help please contact @RainbowNoirMCR or @WritersofColour on twitter.
