Archie's Fractured Spine

Peanut Kidnapped, Tortured, Killed

Archie came to the vet with a swollen face, a hemorrhaged eye, and bruising and blood all over. There was blood in his urine and a fractured spine. His owner had beaten him repeatedly and fractured his spine because he had peed in the house. Although the owner said Archie was vicious the vet found Archie to be a kind and sweet-natured dog. The owner received 18 weeks in prison and can never own a pet again.

Archie's story

In Australia two men kidnapped a small fox terrier puppy named Peanut. One man was angry at the puppy's female owner who he had once dated. The men took Peanut to a park and cut him with a knife and garden shears. They cut off two of his legs and severed his nose before decapitating little Peanut.

 

It was described as “the worst case of animal cruelty in Australian history.”

Buddy

& Cooper Rescued

from Lab

PETA's website shares this story of inspiring animal rescue. "A PETA undercover investigation of Professional Laboratory and Research Services (PLRS) found that dogs there spent years in cages, being force-fed experimental compounds and infested with worms. Laboratory workers screamed and cursed at the dogs, sprayed them with high-pressure hoses, and dragged them when they were too frightened to move. After PETA released the evidence from the investigation, PLRS shut its doors and surrendered Buddy, Cooper, and nearly 250 other animals."

Roadside

Zoo Abuse

Roadside zoos allow visitors to take pictures with their captive exotic animals such as big cats or bears. The wild animals are kept in tiny, crowded concrete cages. Cubs are taken from their mothers and their claws and canine teeth are removed. One tiger had it's tail torn off by the cat in the adjoining cage.
