Another NY Hoarding/Abuse Case: 75-Year-Old Homeowner Jerome Adler Who Was Not Home When Authorities Arrived, Had Tied 2 Huskies Together So They Couldn’t Reach Their Water, 5 Husky Carcasses Found, 21 Live Huskies In Various Stages Of Health Rescued From Unbelievable Filth, Home Condemned
The above is my version of title by Christopher Eberhardt and Robert Brum at The Journal News.
What IS it with New Yorkers? Why is their state home to so many animal abusers? When are NY counties and state legislators going to get their act together to stop this? I believe this needs to be discussed.
Almost all hoarding and abuse cases involve people who live in rural areas–where they can abuse pets and get away with it.
Misdemeanors? You gotsta be kidding! According to most animal cruelty laws, prosecutors have to prove malicious intent to get felony charges. I think this was “malicious”–tying two dogs together so they couldn’t drink!
I’ll be discussing this case on my show.
