Man Saves Puppies, Learns Lesson on Stupidity

You have to wonder how some people in authority think…

Man Fined for Rescuing Puppies

“When I went to get the keys there was a box and you could hear the puppies – they were abandoned – someone left them there.” Last Tuesday, Bob Theall was delivering supplies to a gas field near Lebeau in Northern St. Landry parish when he stumbled upon a cardboard box. Inside – four crying puppies. “They only looked 2 to 3 weeks old – they were yelping a lot,” says Theall.

Theall wanted to make sure the puppies were taken care of, so he brought them to the Lafayette Animal Control Center – but officials there said they couldn’t take of the dogs because they were found in St. Landry Parish. That’s when Theall decided to take it upon himself to make the puppies Lafayette residents. He traveled a few blocks to an abandoned parking lot and dropped off the puppies and called animal control.

The shelter picked up the dogs, then cited Theall for animal cruelty. “If they would accept puppies from everywhere – they wouldn’t be able to run,” says Lafayette Police Officer Jennifer Taylor. “What’s their job? To protect animals? To turn them away seems ridiculous,” says Theall. …

Theall is facing only a $25, but plans on taking the ticket to court. Animal Control stands by the citation.

I’m thinking it will be thrown out of court.
