More controversy for the humane society…

The writer of a letter-to-the-editor published in Sunday’s Vicksburg Post described the plight of their years-ago-rescued dog, Scruffy, who was apparently impounded by the Vicksburg Warren Humane Society for roaming his neighborhood along Redbone Road – and eating chicken from a neighbor’s garbage can. Though the details were not quite clear, the dog’s owner claimed the humane society would release Scruffy only under the conditions that he “serve out the rest of his life in a cage or at the end of a chain.”

Obviously, there are two sides to the story, and the humane society is entitled to defend and clarify its position. We hope they will do so.

  1. Whoever owns Scruffy is personally resposible for Scruffy’s actions. There is a moral responsibility that too many pet owners ignore. I expect people to keep their pets out of my yard and trash. This is no different than if people allowed their children to roam freely and trash someone’s yard. I have a dog, but it is limited to my yard. Take responsibiliy people!
