There are good samaritans out there!

This week, there was lots of disturbing news regarding the treatment of animals. Here in New Jersey over 400 black bears were killed for no reason. The courts gave hunters the authority to gun down these bears for absolutely no purpose. Barbaric isn’t it? They claim that this will reduce the bear population in NJ.  I doubt it. It gives hunters a reason to load their shot guns and destroy these creatures. It’s disgraceful and I must say that I am really ashamed that I live in this awful state with this awful governor!

Enough politics, there is some good news that occurred this week. A lady, driving past a house in Hawthorne, NJ saw smoke billowing out of someone’s basement. She also heard a dog barking. She stopped the car, made her way to the back of the house and put herself in danger. She kicked in the back door and a small dog came running out. Firefighters arrived at the scene and put out the fire which destroyed the basement and almost killed the little dog.  The dog was treated for smoke inhalation but was alright. Kudos to this wonderful women who risked her life to save this animal. I wish that there were more people like her but unfortunately there are many animal haters who get pleasure out of killing rather than protecting our animals. The owners of the house lost over $65,000 in instruments and recording equipment but said that it didn’t matter at all as long as their precious pup was still alive.

Remember, your pets count!
