No Excuses, Animals First

"There is absolutely no excuse for not being able to get the dog down. What a POS!"

Little Sadie jumped in the water. Her 64 year old owner went in after her and, when he struggled, his 61 year old wife (who could not swim) went in after him. Sadie, like Missy on the mountain, survived. Sadie's own…

Deplorable! FILTHY! Yeah, AND???

AlphaTex Dared To Speak Out

Most animal seizure/forfeiture cases begin with Trespassing and end with Conversion.  They start with activists who have recruited law enforcement to aid them in invading one's privacy and home, often dragging the media along and allowing them to also freely traipse into your home.  This was the top…

The $50 Dog Myth

The recent Medlen decision has once again raised the issue of how to put a dollar value on an animal.  If you do a bit of internet searching the popular belief you will find is that a dog is worth its replacement value which is alleged to generally be about $50; that it has always been thus in Ameri…

But What About the Animals?

Houston Humane Society (HHS) KILLS 86% of the animals taken into their shelter.  Well, that was their kill rate before the economy soured and they increased their RAIDER activities.  Yesterday, through a settlement agreement between Harris County, HHS, and an owner from whom they had seized nearly 2…

Battery By Horse

If you were shoved, even poked, by someone 10 feet tall and weighing 1500 pounds, would you consider that offensive? I damned sure would, even considering it a criminal battery, but it's become a common occurrence that is often lauded by the public.

Battery is a criminal offense involving unlawful p…
