  5. 5. Animal Control <ul><li>We have animal control because people don’t watch or maintain their pets. They don’t care if their dog is running around town. Some people are too lazy to put their dog in a kennel or even buy one. It’s just easier to open the door and let them out. Animal control saves animals’ lives because they get ran over by cars. </li></ul>

  10. 10. Dog Stomped On (It’s True) <ul><li>Sheriff's deputies investigating alleged animal abuse arrested two Cayucos men on suspicion of multiple drug charges.

The incident happened at around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when deputies responded to a report of animal abuse at 24 Saint Mary Avenue.

A neighbor reported that a dog had allegedly been stomped on, bitten, and dragged back to a residence, officials said.

After an investigation of the incident deputies arrested Gabriel Hoover, 20, and Tristan Miller, 18, on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and for possessing marijuana for sale.

Miller was also arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance and for animal cruelty.

Deputies took about 30 grams of marijuana, a firearm, Methadone, cash, digital scales and an assortment of drug paraphernalia from the home, according to a news release.

Hoover and Miller were booked into county jail. </li></ul><ul><li>Here’s a story about how a dog was abused. (wait a while) </li></ul><ul><li>People like this deserve to go to jail. </li></ul>
  11. 11. What is abuse? <ul><li>Dog sled racing </li></ul><ul><li>Dog fighting </li></ul><ul><li>Being chained </li></ul><ul><li>up all of its life </li></ul><ul><li>(Idaho Humane </li></ul><ul><li>Society, 2005) </li></ul>http://www.picture-newsletter.com/sledge/dog-sled-j7zt.jpg
  12. 12. Dog Sled Racing <ul><li>Iditarod </li></ul><ul><li>Inhumane conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Run 1,150 miles </li></ul><ul><li>Record is 8 days, 22 hours, and 46 minutes </li></ul><ul><li>The Iditarod is a dog sled race. Dog’s suffer. </li></ul><ul><li>Down time= inhumane conditions. In downtime some sled racing dogs are chained up. Dog sled racing is good for some dogs because it gives them exercise, but is it too much. In the Iditarod dogs run 1,150 miles. The record is remarkably low at 8 days, 22 hours, and 46 minutes. It’s not right to make a dog run this long. They could be injured or even tired. </li></ul>

  23. 23. Solution <ul><li>Fines </li></ul><ul><li>Jail </li></ul><ul><li>Check people’s backgrounds before they adopt </li></ul><ul><li>People who abuse animals should have to pay large fines and have their animal taken away forever. If the abuse is bad enough, such as starving an animal, the owner should be thrown in jail. To reduce the amount of bad pet owners, people should have a background check and an interview to see if they’re going to be a good pet owner before they are able to adopt an animal. </li></ul>
