The Turning of the Screw
If loosing Charlie wasn’t enough, Facebook now has photos of Charlie that I haven’t seen.
Keep in mind, I don’t know when or where these photos were taken.
But how would that make a person feel? Is this some type of provocation by San Francisco Animal Care and Control? As Charlie’s owner, these photos infuriate me. As I’m sure it is intended. An attempt to provoke me. Anger me. An attempt to punish me more. Make me less human. Trying me in and out of court. Imposing excessive punishments. Over and over.
Cindy Marabito calls this a ‘splinter group’:
I call it bitter people led by San Francisco and Animal Care and Control. Several people in the group have been admitted to be Animal Control volunteers. I have met many of the volunteers. They are nothing like these people. The Animal Control volunteers are nice, sensitive, and professional.
And ACC doesn’t have photo’s like this:
Would you ever stop fighting for your Charlie? Could you ever turn your back on your baby? What is Charlie thinking right now? It’s hard to fathom what Charlie has been through the last five months.
It’s hard to fathom what you have been through. What San Francisco has been through. What people in other countries have been through. I just wanted my dog back and you wanted to help! And did you get any response from them? Did San Francisco acknowledge all the pouring out of love? All the sacrifice? Did San Francisco acknowledge the hope through Christmas and the holiday season? Did San Francisco acknowledge all the Christmas cards, holiday cards, gifts, letters, social networking, love, time, money, and passion? The answer is …
San Francisco didn’t say anything. Nothing about the merits, about the people. Nothing about the spirit that came together across the world. This is what San Francisco had to say:
Embattled pit bull’s euthanization sentence is commuted, as owner agrees to surrender custody for placement in qualified sanctuary
They don’t even mention you, me, or Charlie’s health.
Back in December, they try to clarify saying that they are only defending Animal Control in court.
Well, the Animal Control Administrative Code also refers to The California Code.
The San Francisco Animal Control also have their own city health code that calls for provisions:
The law was not applied to Charlie’s case. Charlie has never bitten a person.
Unlike the city of San Francisco, I sincerely thank you and congratulate you for your sense of duty and purpose in the universe. For your dedication and action to help just one animal who was less than a day from death. You came through and you should be recognized! Without you, Charlie would have been taken away from all of us. Charlie would have his life taken from him.
But you helped me save Charlie, who chased a horse in an area where he’s allowed to be off leash. Who was being a dog. Who was in a space for dogs. Who was with his owner under the guise of freedom, happiness, and frontier. Who was scheduled to be put down even though he’s not vicious or dangerous.
Charlie was just a dog like any other dog. In a park off leash like he was supposed to be. Like was appropriated for the public.
Would you give up on Charlie?
