Why Did Police Keep a Dog Locked in a Cage for 2 Years? | Care2 Causes

Life or Lunch?

Stella has spent the last two years locked in a 3-by-9 foot cage in a kennel in Devon, England. She has never been let out to exercise or play.

In 2014, Stella was taken away by police from her owner, Antony Hastie, because she was “potentially dangerous.” Did she bite or attack someone? No. Under the UK’s Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, Stella is illegal and considered a threat to public safety – but only because of her breed. Stella is a pit bull mix.

They number among those who will be killed and those already killed this season–as many as 900–and they’re slated for shipment to slaughter–perhaps as soon as the week of March 7th. However, before they make that final migration, they’ll be further terrorized. Watch what transpires (see video) when these massive, wild animals of wide open spaces are confined in small capture pens and squeeze chutes: witness their terror; see how they injure themselves and their herd mates–observe the…

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13.

Do animals, particularly dogs, go to heaven?It’s a vexing question, and because the mind of God is ineffable, there can be no absolute answer, but there is faith, hope and love, as Joshua Rogers expressed at Fox News. At the age of 10, Rogers saw his dog run over and killed:
