    Took DD out for a ride today cause she was bored...Drove down this little country road a mile or two from our house. Came around the bend and saw what is probably one of the most inhumane things that I have ever seen.

    There in the side yard right next the road was a small goat tied up on a rope maybe 3 feet long eating a bag of garbage. Behind the goat was a pile of 8 or 9 other shredded bags of trash that had obviously been dinner for the last few days.

    I slowed down, really really really wanted to stop and steal the goat but this is one of those areas where those signs about trespassers being shot arent a joke.

    So, I consoled myself with the fact that as soon as I got back to civilization and could get a cell signal, I could call AC.

    DD was hysterical about the whole thing. It was traumatic for both of us, not to mention the goat.

    However, I can dispel one goat myth after today....they DONT eat tin cans. That was about the only thing left in the pile.

    Will be checking on the situation next week to see if AC made them make changes. I dont hold much hope so plan B of kidnapping the goat after dark some evening is not out of the question or if DH wont agree to that maybe he will stop in and ask if we can buy the goat? But then I would see the chickens and the dog up close and you just knooooow that they wont be in any better shape.

    Thats about normal for goats so I doubt that AC will do anything. Just like pigs, how many raise them is appalling to others.

    There is a special place in hell for those folks, same place the folks that dumped a kitten on the highway today will be. [​IMG]

    We were going to fast to stop, we didn't hit the kitten but I'm sure someone has by now. there were trucks behind us and some coming toward us in the other directions. [​IMG]
  7. Isn't it Grand. People pen and tie up their animals so they can not get to food and water.

    I always told myself, Geezz, if I get to the point where I can not feed and water my animals I will give them away, let them fly away or sell them to some one who can take care of them.

    Burt, alias, people like this seem to think they are doing the animal a favor by giving it a "home".

    The world keeps turning and the idiots of this world keep talking.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Hearing things like that really make me mad. If they don't want the animal, can't take care of it properly then they need to just take it to a local shelter or find a new home for it. ...[​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks for caring and contacting AC. [​IMG]
