So I've Spent quite a bit of today talking to people and thinking about the seizure of the animals yesterday from Celtic Pets. There's been several comments left on my posting from yesterday, and people have been really quick on my rescue lists to condemn Zonda who had previously supported her because of the news that's come out in the last 24 hours - the NS SPCA is veritably jubilant in what's going on currently.
If you missed the Global News Report tonight - I taped it, and put it on You Tube - here it is:
There are some things about it that are very troubling, and some things about it that are very questionable. One thing is that there's a really short shot of a dog snapping out of a cage - I think that is one of Zonda's personal dogs - a dog named Charlie - who is a dog like my Teddy (dog rest his soul) - a dog that wouldn't be alive except for the fact that someone in rescue adopted him. Charlie is a horrible, hateful biter who hates everyone in the world except for Zonda. He has to be drugged to just have his nails trimmed - forget about trying to give him a bath.
So if they removed EVERY dog from the premises - then they probably ALSO removed Zonda's PERSONAL dogs - of which she has about 10.
So there are SO many sides to every story.
Maybe the best thing that could happen to this is that cruelty charges are brought so that Zonda can clear her name for once and for all - in a court of law - instead of continually living in an air of suspicion.
But I for one am not going to jump on the band wagon and believe what the NS SPCA is telling me carte blanche. That is for sure. I've been listening to what they've been saying for years - and their language is never spoken in plain english - and it's certainly not being spoken in that way today - that is for sure. I can assure you of that.
