The world has completely gone to hell in the last 36 hours, based on the shocking display of animal cruelty cases that Houston's Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care is dealing with.
Authorities are investigating the following, according to BARC:
-- A man shot a Yorkshire terrier with a high-powered air rifle -- on a street, in front of children -- killing the animal.
-- A group of kids are suspected of beating a dog to death and burying it in a yard. BARC vets are conducting a necropsy to determine the cause of death.
-- A juvenile glued a kitten's mouth shut and then drowned it
-- A group of kids set a dachshund on fire. The dog survived. BARC vets stabilized the dog and placed him in foster care with Paws Haven Rescue. (The group has named the dog Cesar, and delivered him to Westheimer Animal Clinic in Bellaire for extensive care. The group is accepting donations).
