Has anyone ever considered that maybe this person was having a very difficult time surviving...maybe he couldn't even take care of himself. If the Humane Society already had suspician of the dogs being neglected...why didn't they remove the dogs immediately. I know this young man and I have never seem him be violent or disrespectful. I know him as a kind and respectful person. Down on his luck and having a hard time, but he was always been a very nice person and never made trouble.
The press is making this person sound like a monster when he is not. What about all the deadbeat dads who neglect their children with no regard to how they are fed or clothed? Why are they not made out to be monsters? Why doesn't our child support agency and press write aricles about how their children are left to survive on their own...or with a mother who has to work 2-3 jobs to take care of their basic needs! I feel sorry for the dogs, but what about the human neglect and abuse? Maybe we should publicize all the deadbeat dads like we are this unfortunate young man who is having a difficult time.

regardless of his situation those animals were his responsibility. he could have gave them to the humane society but instead chose to let them starve and suffer. furthermore this has nothing to do with child abuse so i dont know why you started loosing track of the subject. moron...
