Of course I'd have to see the RSA's that govern animal cruelty but somehow this just doesn't sound right meaning that I don't think that all of the facts are being reported - as is often the case in any court situation. If the actual apartment was declared "condemned" then there's definitely more to the story than is being told by the media. I also find it somewhat difficult to believe that SOME form of restitution isn't provided for in the RSA's. Of course, I also marvel at how multiple counts of animal cruelty can be pled down to "a single order of disorderly conduct" as the two infractions could not possibly be more diametrically opposed. However, I hate to say that I'm not shocked. It's amazing what the legal system will do when it doesn't want to actually deal with a problem.....

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this story took place in Kentucky. That being the case I find it interesting that a judge would "order the transfer" (i.e. dump) of these animals to an out of state facility without providing some form of funding to ensure proper care of the animals. And without any associated funding, I'm surprised that the facility would agree to take the animals.

As far as ordering this kid to perform his community service at the facility that his animals are being transferred to that's actually putting the fox in the hen house as opposed to simply leaving the gate open for him - I would've thought that a better solution could have been found. If I were in that situation I would have to respectfully but firmly deny that the kid have any access to my facility - regardless of the condition of the animals. It just opens up too many potential legalities.
