Black Cop Who Dumped His Emaciated Dog in Trash Arrested

THE RECOVERING PIT BULL HAS BEEN NAMED CRANBERRY.

Blacks seem to commit animal abuse at a much higher rate than the general population. It’s another form of cultural enrichment that diversity brings to your town and mine.

Inside Edition

A police officer who allegedly dumped his emaciated dog in a trash bag in a Philadelphia park has been arrested.

Michael Long, an 11-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, is accused of leaving the pit bull for dead in Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park last November. Long, 33, surrendered to police on Thursday.

A dog walker alerted the SPCA after seeing the pup’s nose sticking out from a trash bag. Photos taken shortly after she was found show her cowering on the ground, with her rib bones visible through her fur.

The SPCA took in the 3-year-old dog, who has been renamed Cranberry.

They learned she had a microchip, which they say led them to Long.

Following months of treatment, Cranberry was adopted, the SPCA told InsideEdition.com.

“Cranberry is doing wonderfully now,” spokesperson Gillian Kocher said. “She is in her new forever home, has recovered completely physically and has the same sweet and loving personality that she has always had.”

She was adopted by a man who followed her story on the news, Kocher said.

“He was so touched by her story that he came in to make a donation and met her,” she said. “He returned twice while she was recovering, and when she was ready to go home, he made it official.”

Following the investigation by the SPCA, Long surrendered himself to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Internal Affairs Unit on Thursday.

He is charged with two misdemeanors for animal cruelty, one misdemeanor for possession of an instrument of crime, and a summary charge of animal cruelty, police said.

“He has not acknowledged any wrong doing in this case as of this time,” Kocher said.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has suspended Long for 30 days with the intent to dismiss at the end of the 30 days, police said in a statement. He was assigned to the 18th District.

This story was posted on the web about a month ago. Long should be gone soon.

Callous Asians left a dog to die. How common is that?

This story, at least, has a happy ending.

Get well soon, Plasty!

Straitstimes.com

KOTA KINABALU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS)- A dog with a plastic container stuck to its head for days in Malaysia’s Kota Kinabalu has been rescued by rangers from the state’s Wildlife Rescue Unit.

The rescue came after a senior Sabah Wildlife Department officer received a call about the plight of the stray dog named Plasty that had its head trapped in a plastic container while foraging for food at a suburban housing estate garbage dump.

A team headed by Wildlife Rescue Unit veterinarian Dr Nabila Sarkawi tranquillised it and removed the plastic container from its head.

The team then treated the animal, the Wildlife rescue unit said in a posting on Facebook.

“The dog was severely dehydrated and probably had no food or water for days. It would not have survived another 36 hours with the container stuck to its head,” Dr Nabila said.

The dog was then brought to the SPCA Kota Kinabalu for further medical treatment.

They have named the dog Plasty as he was found with a plastic container stuck to his head.

“Plasty’s condition has stabilised,” Dr Nabila said, adding that it should make a speedy recovery at the shelter.

Many expressed shock over residents’ apathy to the suffering of the dog that was seen within the housing area.

The wildlife unit, based at the nearby Lok Kawi Zoo, has in the past rescued distressed dogs in the city.

Many netizens hoped that the public would be more careful in dumping containers that could harm the animals in the city.

Chunky, a Chihuahua mix from England, was stolen from his home in late October by four underage males. The dog endured days of torture and was dumped by abusers, believing the dog was dead. However, the tiny dog clung to life and was found alive by RSPCA rescuers. They saved, nursed back to health, and reunited him with his owners. The teenage animal abusers faced a judge and received punishment.

Itv reports the dog snatchers and abusers ranged in ages from 15 to 16 years old. They held the dog for several days, fed him drugs, punched, kicked, set him on fire, and broke the dog’s leg and neck. After the torture, the criminals believed the dog was dead and tossed him as garbage in Margate, England.Once found, the dog was rushed to local veterinarians who examined him. Experts say the abuse Chunky endured lasted about six days, but the damage caused took weeks to undo.

All four teenagers pleaded guilty. Their sentence included getting banned from owning a pet for five years, placed under probation for the next 12 months, and paying fines from $700 to $9,000.

We have work to do. None of the vile teen psychopaths who tortured Chunky should ever be allowed to have any kind of animal.

The Daily Mail has given this story worldwide publicity, for which we can be thankful.

Chunky has recovered, at least physically, as seen in this photo with his owners.

Sad Baby Otter Buddy Found Crying on Doorstep After Losing His Mum in Storm

What an adorable creature. The sight of him makes me smile.

Excerpt from metro.co.uk

A baby otter was found crying on a doorstep after becoming separated from his mother in Storm Desmond.

The tiny 10-week-old cub was found at the back door of a house in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, on Monday morning.

Heavy rains caused devastation in the north and Scotland last weekend.

Staff at the Scottish SPCA centre are now looking after the tiny otter, and have nicknamed him Buddy.

‘This is a very hazardous time for young otters, as they can easily be washed out of their holts by high rivers – and at that age they are not accomplished swimmers,’ centre manager Colin Seddon said.

‘If separated from their mothers, they may well perish.’

Buddy is recovering but will never see his mother again. In a year he’ll be released into the wild.

A happy ending to sabotage our preoccupation with the talk of war that occupies the media these days, along with all the other bad news.

EATONTOWN, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey family whose terrier-pit bull mix escaped from their backyard during Superstorm Sandy went to an animal shelter this week to adopt a new pet and came home with their old dog.

Chuck James tells The Associated Press that his family searched for the brown-and-white dog named Reckless for months after the October 2012 storm before finally giving up hope.

“We reported him missing and called the shelters periodically, just hoping they had him,” James said Saturday. “We always kept our hopes up, but eventually it’s time to move on.”

James said the family had planned in recent weeks to get a new dog as a 10th birthday surprise for their eldest daughter, Ally.

But when the family of five went to the Monmouth County SPCA on Thursday to adopt a new animal, James and his wife approached the first cage and saw a familiar face inside.

“He was a little bigger than I remembered because they had fed him well,” James joked. “But then he was laying on my wife’s feet, and I knew it was him. … I was in disbelief. I know this dog is meant to be with our family.”

When SPCA officials asked if they could prove the animal was their dog, a friend sent over a picture showing the family with their dog before Sandy hit the Jersey shore.

“We’re all so happy to have him back,” James said. “Thank God for no-kill shelters because every time they kill an animal, it’s somebody’s friend who might be lost. Thank God they didn’t put him down because this would have been a different story.”

SPCA officials say Reckless was picked up as a stray and has now been microchipped.

The family is living in a hotel while their storm-damaged Keansburg home is repaired. This weekend, the Jameses went on a camping trip with Reckless to celebrate the dog’s return.
