There is no excuse for animal abuse of any kind! I hope there will be charges against these animal abusers!

If found to be true the perpetrators should be charged and convicted under the new Federal animal abuse laws. Give them the max sentence. Pathetic and poor excuse for human beings they are.

That's really awful. I'd want to see the breeders entire operations seized and auctioned off with the proceeds covering their prosecution.
