The news article that I posted on the weekend about the court case that Chapman kennels had against the Benoits and the Benoits had against Chapman Kennels and ended with the sentence - "Chapman said they’ve had to sell the remaining dogs at reduced prices, or give them away, and euthanized about 175 of them" - has really shook me.
They killed 175 of their dogs and no one seems to have noticed or cared. No news organization has picked up on that fact, no Humane Organization has picked up on it and spoken out, no one has said anything or made any statement.
How did they kill that many dogs all at once? Did they find a vet willing to kill that many dogs all at once? Or did they do it themselves? How did they do it?
2 Amish farmers in Pennsylvania caused national outrage this summer when they shot and killed 80 of their dogs after receiving notification that they had to get them veterinary care for flea bites - they killed them rather than get them help. How was that any different than what the Chapman's have done? Why is there any less outrage?
I think that what has happened up there is awful - the Chapman's murdered 175 of their dogs - and they've gotten away with it. And they're blaming it on the public and everybody but themselves and the puppy mill they were running - they said they had 425 dogs on their farm. That is disgusting.
