Update on February 06, 2013
Clyde is my adorable ball of energy that is now destined to die due
to the rash actions of the Saline County Arkansas court systems. He was
involved in one incident, wherein he was involved in an altercation with another dog. The family of the other dog and the Saline County courts
incriminated Clyde and wanted him to die. They deemed him vicious and perpetuated Clyde as a murderous
pit bull -- which he is not!!! In truth, Clyde is a hyper, lovable, yet anxious
character. Uncomfortable in situations involving other dogs, he reacted-- which is often a dog's instinctive nature.
Four months later
we appeared in court. The county calls its six witnesses, all repeating
the same embellished story and creating a biased argument based on the
incident rather than reporting Clyde's actual personality. Repeating a
story that shows an animal to be aggressive and "vicious" does not give
ground that an animal is vicious .Clearly, this is not logical
Now, without further investigation, without
further examination, without further questioning -- he is sentenced to either live a life of detention--imprisoned in an 8 by 8 chain enclosure and forced to wear
a muzzle--or be put to death. What is this justice? What is this
justice that the potential--incredibly small I might add--for another animal to have sustained injuries has become a reality of death for mine? Why must Clyde die
due to an unjust, biased and drastic conclusion?
truth is that Clyde doesn't have to die. We can overturn this ruling.
But for us to do that we need all the support we can get. Please, tell
your friends, family, everyone about this critical, life and
death issue. I don't want my dog to die. And I don't want him to live a
life of imprisonment, dismay and anxiety.
