This is such a sad issue. Sadder still is the fact that the county has no animal shelter and residents are told by local government to take found or unwanted animals to the city dump so that they can find something to eat. There is one lady in the community who has an in-home shelter who tries her best to provide homes for the strays and unwanted animals for the whole town. It's a cryin shame that the city hasn't made this issue more of a proirity when they know it's a probelm in the commmunity.

What they don't tell you in the article is that
Brantley County GA has no animal control facility.
No humane society. There is one little private out-fit run on donations and it's not well known.
That's it. The dump and run method has been used
succesfully for years. Normally, they are still
alive and left to starve at dumpsters. So this
is actually an improvement....

This is really really wrong. Not having been here from much longer than 1 1/2 yrs (Indiana transplant) I didn't know this was a GA. county. These counties HAVE to inlist the help of a sympathetic vet who is not just in it for the money, to euthanize these unwanted animals humanely. As for the "air chamber" I guess I've heard of that, and gas. Whatever it is, it has to be more humane than what happened to these poor animals. Animals and babies are the best God has to give us. We "grown up" humans are disgusting!! And this is how they end up. All they did was be born (because of careless ignorant people) and wanted love and something to eat. Not so much to ask. Spay and neuter your animals, PEOPLE!!(or maybe SPAY and Neuter your PEOPLE would work better?) PLEASE!!! Be a part of the solution, not the problem, or this will NEVER END!! And PUPPY MILLS, go to HELL you money grubbing moron animal abusing jerks.

What did they do back in the day when there was no animal control? Does everything have a natural life cycle?

We are back in the day. There are more humane ways to treat animals. If you can't take care of a pet, don't get one!!!!!!!!!

I think there is not enough information to determine the dogs cause of death at this time. You don't know from the article how they died or where. What we have here at this time is a case of illegal dumping. I'd be surprised if dumping already dead carcasses is cruelty to animals. So far it sounds like someone trying to avoid disposal fees.

Ok, it can be shocking, but try not to let your emotions cloud your mind.

Well I would think that the dumping of 30 dog carcasses is a little suspicious. I'm not letting my emotions cloud anything. At least I have emotions.

I agree!! We shouldn't jump to conclusions until we have all the facts!!!
Also, What about all these babies that are being aborted, dumped, flushed in toilets, placed in bags to die?? Who will defend them???? I love animals and have two dogs myself. But it seems that dogs have more rights than the unborn that are being murdered everyday!!!!!

That is a retarded, ignorant view. Nothing suspicious about 30 dead dogs?? Some in bags?? Just trying to avoid dumping fees?? Are you INSANE??? Oh, excuse me. OBVIOUSLY!!

They don't inject the animals. They put them in a chamber which pumps all the air out and the animals are smothered to death. Then they put everything in the chamber into a deep freeze until their little lifeless bodies are disposed of. GROSS!
That method of euthanizing was out-lawed in Florida in the 90's.
Most animal control and shelters use an overdose of a narcotic. It takes about 3 seconds if done correctly. Then they store the bodies in a deep freezer and dispose of the bodies in a landfill. Cremation is too exspensive for most shelters.
But the article states that the animals were found in plastic bags, which is what most shelters put the bodies in before the are put in the freezer

I didn't say it wasn't suspicious. But just cause they were dead don't mean the people that put them there killed them. For example, the funeral director at the Morning Glory Chapel (1999) didn't kill those people he was supposed to bury .
