Going to the dogs

Going to the dogs

My friend Paul pointed this one out. Read this article about a bunch of pit bulls being rescued from a now-condemned house where they being trained to become fighting dogs and were found near illegal narcotics.

It isn’t until the 7th paragraph, second from last, that we discover that also being kept in this house of qualor were two toddlers and a bedridden 86-year-old woman. And this story isn’t unique. All the news coverage has focused almost entirely on the “poor” dogs and how badly they were treated. Meanwhile, at least three other people were also being kept in squalor and mistreated, but the media decided to focus on the dogs. Once again, animals are more important than people.
