Words Fail Me . . .

Words fail me . . . I was so angry and upset to have heard about this on the main news early this morning. I think it is just another sad reflection on the education, qualifications, consideration, thoughtfulness, intelligence and basic common sense of our modern police officers. I hope the RSPCA will bring a prosecution for cruelty. One would have expected them to know better . . .

Needless to say "lessons will be learned" - again !! HUH. And all the Chief Supt Ak Khan can say is 'this has caused immense sadness' - meanwhile the officer who 'lost this valuable member' of his team is probably at home on paid leave 'grieving' while there is an investigation into how 'lessons can be learned' for the future. HUH and HUH again.

If this is an example of Britain's Finest the no wonder the criminal element are ruling UK which is now seen as the most violent and lawless country in Europe.

I was shocked at that story too. A police dog handler, of all people, should really have known better. Why were the dogs shut up in a car at all? I presume he will be prosecuted, just as anyone else would be.

I cannot fathom the mentality of some animal owners. Only last week I returned to a DIY store and demanded a member of staff go trace the owner of a vehicle in the car park.

Car windows were closed tight and most of them dripping inside with condensation. Panting in the back seat was a very large dog with obvious distress in his eyes.

If I had discovered this down right cruelty in a more public car parking area I would have smashed the car windows and blow the consequences.
