I don't know if anybody has seen this yet, but this is Kahn.  It's good to put a face to victims, it makes them real and not just an object for pity. What a beautiful Newf he was, his family obviously loved him very much....  :'(

Oh wow, he's beautiful. And you're right, that's the first thought I had, someone loved this guy an awful lot. I am forwarding this to everyone I know. After reading what happened to him, I'm just so confused as to why people are like that? How do you look at a beautiful animal like that and come up with that plan? It's just so sickening. And so very very sad for the Bradford's :'(

Thanks, Ryan, for finding that picture.  It's all I can do to quickly skim reports like these before I get to a boiling rage.  I think it's the mother bear in me.  BLIND rage!  I hope everybody (even the lurkers  ;) ;) ;)) sign the petition.  Their goal is 5,000 signatures.... wish we could get a million!  :'( :'( :'(

I've signed. 

Where exactly was this?  Maybe there needs to be a second petition to recall the judge and get the District/Prosecuting Attorney defeated in the next election.

It was in Wetumpka, AL.  The petition is addressed to the distict attorney, but the case was handled in municipal court.  No clue yet.

Is there anybody in Alabama who can find out who the judge is?  He needs to know that there are people in the country who think that animals matter to families; people who pay taxes and vote.  People who get really, really P*ssed off by that kind of a punishment.  The DA needs to be embarrassed, the judge and anybody who had anything to do with that case!!!

I read this last night and signed the petition. It sickens me to think humans can be so sick. When I tried to sleep , I kept on thinking about the suffering that poor dog went through. People like that deserve to die a slow painful death!

Oh, Tim, I'm so glad that you did that!!  I hope we hear something back so these idiots don't think they can operate below the radar!!!  Maybe if they get embarrassed enough, other judges and DA's will take animals who are loved by humans more seriously!!!  They are not "just property"!!! >:(

fumble and i are 3,376.  this is absolutely disgusting! i have to say, i am throughouly disgusted and ashamed to be a part of a society that lets this happens to animals, and the creulty of people.  a 400 fine basically says, oh it's okay. here's a slap on your hand.  everybody has something they love, dog, cat, hamster, snake.. take your pick.  everybody has an animal they feel like they can't live without!  i know i'm preaching to people who already feel this way.  but still! im just venting because i think more than anythign this pisses me off!!!

and wait a minute? did anything happen because of his pit bulls?? isn't that a crime in itself?  raising dogs to be killers, per say???

So he's a dog-killer/rapist ??? what next...mauling innocent young girls with his pack of pits? those pits are also being abused.
This has my signature for sure.

I have forwarded this to a popular radio talk show host here in Boston who is also owned by a couple of Newfoundlands that he adores and talks about on his show often. His show is political in nature and he has a wide audience, hopefully he'll be willing to call attention to this issue. Keep your fingers crossed!

I'm in tears. :'(  That poor family.  That poor dog, my goodness the pain and confusion he must have went through...

I will DEFINITELY be signing this petition.  The link didn't work for me right now, but I'll try again later. :-\

People are SICK.  I'm going to go give Kate a big hug now, I couldn't even imagine...
