Is Anyone Laughing?
August 27, 2011
MAS webcam watchers are bearing witness to the abuse and killing that goes on at the pound. They are giving faces to pets who would otherwise be known only as a statistic in a year end killing report. For this, I am grateful.
It takes a toll on those who watch the webcams, just like it does on everyone who looks at the shots posted here. Who among us could watch pet after pet being needlessly taken to the kill room, knowing they were never even offered for adoption, without suffering for it?
Without webcam watchers, there would be no photographic evidence of what goes on behind closed doors at MAS. As awful as it is to see, I won’t look away. And I am thankful there are others who won’t either.
All the pets in this post appear to have been killed by MAS on Friday, August 26, 2011. There were others as well. While webcam watchers were documenting the horrors of needless killing at MAS on Friday, someone there thought it would be funny to send a message of sorts.
Congratulations morons. You guys are just hilarious. I’m sorry I can’t laugh at the moment because I’m throwing up after looking at pictures of all the pets you just killed. It’s good to know Memphis has professional, caring people like you to look after the community’s pets. Well done Mayor Wharton.
