learned some things throw a dog a treat and unless it just sits there it's likely been starved

It's nicer to kill a dog as long as it's done "humanely"

A dog must have a license to exist

I can't believe someone could be so cruel as to let these animals starve. I agree I think they should be given the same treatment as these poor helpless animals. Tie them up in the cold and not give them any food. This makes me sick!!!

Don't blame the courts blame the politicians that on't pass laws to protect animals in Ohio they must give the courts the power to do something.

Please read about Ohio House Bill 274. Then contact your elected officials and urge them to support and enact HB274.

Local courts and authorities are limited by Ohio's state laws. They can only prosecute what the state allows them to.

You can find more information about HB274 by doing a simple search. Our companion animals deserve better. Offenders such as these people deserve a lot more punishment than they will get with Ohio's current laws.

If there were 5 dogs then there should be five counts of cruelty to animals and 5 counts of failure to register the animals. Why doesn't the court charge them with the 10 counts each? Too much paperwork? I think that is what they get paid for. This is deplorable!!! If there have been other instances where there was questionable care of animals, why not ban them from ever having animals. If you can't take care of animals, don't have any!!!

Watch, all these two will get is a slap on the wrist even though the article stated that he has had dogs removed before. Why do the courts not BAN idiots like this from ever owning a pets again??
