Where's the update? I don't see anything updated on your link as it is the same as I had posted yesterday!
If one looks at PA zoning laws it is umabigious a barn is not a dweling unit they are clearly defined the law on dog limit is part of the zoning law etc. Philly can arque all they want that is not what they meant but the law is clear and unambiqius and dog in a barn are not regulated. I have provide in the past posts on this subject links to PHill dog limit law the definition in the zoning laws etc. Let us say the County/city (the same in this case does not have a leg to stand on,)Her lawsuit argues that the barn is exempt from the rules
Murder hollow is a hunt pack run in the manner of hunt packs in england they do not sell dogs to the public the may breed dogs for themselves and/or other hunt pack and exchange dogs etc. Fischer my harrier's sire was imported from a hunt pack in England. The hunt packs will sell to interested parties outside of england/great britian but would euthanize dog before selling then to the general public in side the country as pets. It is just the mentality. You will find conventionial definitions here do not hold water. Did Ms willard breed dogs on occassion yes but they were not sold, so how does that square with a conventional defintion of a breeder?first calls her a breeder, then says she does not sell dogs, then says she's raised 17 litters, then goes to say she didn't sell them,
That is a claim with no supporting evidence. No neighbor has come forward and admitted to make a barking dog complaint. PASPCA has not produced nor in all honestly obilgated to produce any coroberating evidence ie phone log, that such a call was ever made. Suposedly a Business card was left on the door, not a Professional way to handle a "police" complaint IMHO When is the last time a Poilce Officer Left a business card with a note to Call me on it. It is also not the reason for obtaining the search warrant. Which again is very suspcious because obviously someone can not count, the purpose of the warrant was for PA dog law violations operating a kennel without a licences and with less than 25 dogs she was never in violation of the PA dog law.in fact, one of the woman's neighbors complained about her--
Actual the limit was never part of any prosecution because Ms Willard "voluntarily" surrender excess dog that and the fact there are no penaltiesbut it looks like the D.A disagrees
So you are saying that if Ms Willard was an axe murder and she promissed never to do it again they would have drop the charges Please. Again PASPCA standard operating Proceedure bring charges to force compliance with regulations that actual do not exist ie if you do a.b.c. we will dismiss the charges doing a.b.c. is a lot less costly than fighting the charges in most cases so for the average citizen it becomes a no brainer but it has a chilling overall effect a police state tactic. This could be easily solved if states like PA and they certainanly are only the tip of the iceberg because the same is true with the majority of states, turn over police investigative and enforcement authority to a private enterprise. Sort of like giving mall police the full authority of the state.that she complied w/the what needed to be done, that is what resulted in them dropping the charges
It was clearly explained in an early post. PASPCA sa it is a tick infestation. Barbara Wickland, BHCA representitive to AKC, basset hound athority and author, founder of Tri state basset rescue acual say the dog and say they are "hounor scars from doing what pack hound do, chasing rabbit in heavy corver (read briars) Macey has only been to a few field trials but she has a few of these herself. when the cut heal the skin blackens than the hair does not grow back leaving i small back "tick" spot. Those that had the honor and priviledge of dealing with Barbra Wicklund trust her judgement and integrety and honesty. Those that don't hatch a bunch of consperisy theories., but that pic shows black things on its face. I don't know what it is, but doesn't look only like old age to me.
NO just one in particular and to see the clear unbiasedness of this individual I suggest you read bassettownhall blog on glaucoma and see if her opinion of the BHCA in general is not clouded.there are a number of vocal dog owners who are upset about BHCA's support of this woman
That's the clincher for me. If they were really neglected there would have been months of rehabilitation, not straight into surgery the next day with a big dose of general anaesthetic. Which brings me to just how the hell did they expect the anaesthetist to sedate and monitor 12 dogs in 72hrs!? It's a miracle more didn't die.Soundtrack said:And if the dogs were in such terrible condition, how is it that they were able to be altered and adopted out almost immediately?
