I wish to clarify remarks about idiot animal owners in a previous post (see Sunday 22 Feb). I do not think all animal owners are idiots. Some of my best friends are animal owners, and they are not idiots.
However, we seem to have a higher percentage of idiot animal owners here in the Mid-South, which is historically poor on animal control. There are some pretty bad stewards of dogs, cats, horses, etc. Remember where I said it's frequent front page news? A prime example is a story like this, in which a crazy lady gave Viagra to dogs in order to increase breeding.
Now, in order to deal with her stupidity, a lot of time, effort and expense is going into easing these dogs' suffering. That's what I meant about idiot animal owners.
