Welcome to Police State America, where the government kidnaps your pet and demands a ransom or a ‘fine’. Don’t pay it? That’s fine we’ll just murder your pet!
In a number of cities across the country, animal control agencies are aggressively going after pet owners with big fines for small violations. Some hold people’s pets until they settle their bills, even if it means they end up killed. Others leave the dogs alone but issue arrest warrants for owners who can’t pay up.
A CNNMoney analysis of active warrants from a sampling of 15 cities and counties across the country found thousands of outstanding warrants for small pet-related offenses.
They are threatening people. They are intimidating people.”
