GINTA – Proper laws and responsible humans can prevent animal abuse

THE STORY HIT THE NEWS THREE DAYS AGO, but it’s already buried under so many others that have emerged since. It was yet another story about animal cruelty, and sadly, another story about a known offender.

A total of 97 badly neglected animals, including adults dogs and puppies, horses and cats, were seized from a woman’s property in Princeton, a location she settled for after hopping from one place to another in the Lower Mainland where she had another bunch of animals seized in 2016.

It’s awful that innocent and defenseless animals suffer at the hands of some humans. It’s beyond awful that these humans get to do it again until someone takes notice, they get reported and their poor victims get seized.

Then they do it all over again and the rest of us get to see more disturbing photos of abused animals and we add that to the stack of similar stories we’ve been hearing over the years.
