I am surprised at Mr. robinsons remark about ending nothing. We desperately need a law against prolonged tethering od animals. It is abuse and inhumane. Animals can become psychotic in solitary confinement as humans do. To tie a dog is cruel unless you will be there.
I guess people in this area don't believe in the love of mans best friend. It is surely a shame.
Forget about the hours of tethering. No animal control officer or deputy will give a damn about a dog that is tethered. It seems to be their mindset. I don' know if the officers don't give a damn or it comes from abov them. It just needs to stop.

I think all counties should pass laws protected the animals more. I understand it would hurt breeders, however there are enough dogs, pure breds and mixed in shelters that breeding should be outlawed, at least until there are no animals in the shelters being killed every day. As for tethering, there should a time limit on how long a dog can be tied out. I have 5 dogs and I watch them very carefully, they go out for bathroom breaks and fresh air, and we are close by. this is a mean world today, can't trust anyone not even with your pets in their own yard.

We can't trust many owners either. The laws should be passed now not later. The abuse must end!
Exotic animal should not be allowed is my view. They should be in their own habitat. Harsh fines should be awarded and jail if and when appropriate. The humans that mistreat animals surely will do the same to a human. Quit delaying your game tactics commissioners and do your duty. If you listen to these shop owners you'll never pass a law.
