Dallas prosecutor gets Pack of Justice Award for great quote

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.
