As I said in my previous post today, the vicious winters are being really hard on dogs. In Ohio, an 83-year-old man surrendered his two Beagles to local authorities because of outrage among his neighbors and on social media over his leaving the dogs outside in cold weather.
The police department in Youngstown, Ohio, received calls and complaints from all over the country, thanks to pictures of the dogs that were posted online. On Monday, the owner brought them in to the Mahoning County Dog Warden’s Office, saying that he was tired of the pressure.
“He said he doesn’t want to take any more heat,” said Deputy Dog Warden Dave Nelson.
