According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune an Osprey woman, Shelley Bezanson,
aged 28, has been charged with strangling her 7 year old pit bull, Diamond, to death with it’s leash.
I am not a fan of pit bulls, though this is not THEIR fault my feelings about them are really about the morons who think that it is a sign of their manhood to have a vicious dog.. like a pit bull… It seem that the woman in question had been threatened with eviction if she did not get rid of Diamond, her pit bull.
She then went to her vet in order to have him put to sleep.. The Vet, obviously some kind of crazed animal lover, refused citing the fact that Diamond was healthy. The Vet then refered her to a number of animal rescue groups that would give him a home. She refused. She would later turn up the music at home and strangle Diamond with the dog’s leash.. A necropsy revealed the dog likely suffered a prolonged and painful death.
While I have not seen anything about her having children I can only worry about the future of any children that she might ever have.
There are many people out there who would be delighted to have been able to give Diamond a home.. Many people who have pets will treat them like children and some will even spend large amounts of money for their medical care. This woman took an animal that, if it was like almost any pet, loved her unconditionally, and murdered it in a heinous and cruel fashion just because she did not want anyone else to have him, or her.
Yes, to me, she is a perfect candidate for neutering/spaying or, at the least, she should be permanently barred from having either pets, or children..
That Joe Guy.
