I wish we could see this news story repeated all over the country. Thanks to a great donation, Dallas County (Texas) will get an Animal Cruelty Unit to investigate and prosecute cases of abuse to animals.
In a Dallas Morning News story, prosecutor Heath Harris was quoted as saying –
We want people to know that if you abuse our four-legged citizens we are going to come down on you.
The group Safer Dallas Better Dallas helped raise the funds and donated the money to the county, for the two-person cruelty unit. I hope Harris’ strong words are a sign the area is serious about coming down hard on these criminals.
What a great idea. I hope more counties will fund these units.
An NBCDFW.com article noted the funds are for one year, but the county commissioners want to keep the program going.
