What is so hard about putting out feed and water for your dog? Every so often there's a story in the paper of someone letting their animals starve to death. Its easy to feed dogs and cats. Even cheap off brand dog food will nourish a dog. Table scraps and leftovers will too. I myself have fed many a neighbor's dog because they won't. What is the reasoning behind starving animals? Why have an animal if you can't take care of it? Makes no sense.

I hope the judge gives that cruel POS in todys paper the maximum jail time ,and fines for animal cruelty!! Vanhook is a fair man and don't like stuff like this!! I would not want to be in that mans shoes in front of Vanhook!! The animal control officer is HOT no doubt!! I bet she lost her good nature when she seen how that poor baby died!!Animals are innocent, and dont deserve to be treated this way!! Wish the fines, and punishment for animal cruelty was more severe!! Charles

I hope he gets Vanhook too. That is a great man and a great judge. People who have animals and neglect them are complete pieces of shit that in my opinion don't deserve to be living anymore than murderers. If you are so heartless and worthless that you would let an animal in your care wither away then you don't deserve any better!

I agree that POS needs to be locked away but the laws on the books just aren't harsh enough for that to happen. He might get a hefty fine, community service and possibly probation. The animal cruelty laws need to be revamped and the penalties need to fit the crime.

Made me cry to think what that poor neglected, chained up animal suffered. Don't have one if you are not going to take proper care of it. What is wrong with people?

Cruel people thats what!! Animal lovers should protest in large crowds around the courthouse and make su h a scene until they have to stiffen up the fines and penaltys with the people and media behind it they would be forced to take prompt action!!

Arkansas actually has some pretty tough animal cruelty laws that were put in place in 2007, I believe. I hope they will be applied to this case.

So true. Why have a dog if you don't have a fenced yard. I hate to see dogs on chains. They chain them up and never walk or play with them. At least that is what the people do whose yard connect to mine. I have called animal protection more than once because they didn't even have shelter in the winter or from the rain. But they still have 5 pit bulls they keep. One broke from his chain and came to my house. I was Leary of him at first cause you don't know how a dog will be when he's been chained, but all he wanted was affection. That poor dog. Probably was trying so hard to reach his nasty water. And then to just leave him laying there. Need to chain him outside in 100 degree weather without water.

I looked up the Arkansas animal cruelty statutes. They were made tougher in 2009. The laws are for mainly dogs, cats, and horses, but cover other animals too. An abuser can now be charged with a felony instead of a misdemeanor. They can receive a six year jail sentence and a $10,000 dollar fine. They also tack on five years if the torture is done in front of a child. The court can order the offender to have a psychological exam which the offender has to pay for. Of course, the judge has to enforce this law for it to work. It would be a whole lot easier if people would just feed and water their animals and provide a shady living area. People can also report animal abuse and not be prosecuted if done in good faith. So the neighbors could have reported this case.

You are kidding, right? I know you didn't just call George Van Hook a great man! This man is, in reality, is a hypocritical slime and a drunkard, who feels he doesn't have to abide by the laws that the rest of us do. He is a little harsh, though, so I hope that swine drops the gavel on the animal abusers so hard, it rattles their great-grand-children.

I have sat in VanHook's Court for years, as part of my job. He IS a fair man on the bench...his personal life is HIS business. I have great respect for him.
