well I agree with some of what you are saying for sure, did not see the pictures so wont argue the details of that, even just to play devil's advocate here.
as ato your OH experiences, and referring that to this case, that is invalud as a factor...
AC and these types of laws are enforced by local authorities, not state.. so differents counties, and towns in the same state can also be very vastly different, and many of the enforcement procedures of state laws, differ fairly widely as well.
plus the counties all have their own codes and laws, some much more extreme than the others...
did you know that in certain counties, it is illegal to tease or frustrate a dog? this law was writeen to target protection training (sport included).
things can and do get overblown in certain areas, fine if he was a scumbag, and mistreated dogs, he deserves to be targeted and rammed..
I have taken in 100's of board and trains in my life, of course you do those things you said, but on the flip side, as a groomer, I am sure you yourself have stiptic, for the occasional toenail accident, and/or slave for the occasional minor scissor or clipper malfuntion..
I personally have not taken in dogs from far distances, if something minor happens, I call the owner first, not the vet.
anything including a scratch can be considered a laceration by AC..
the remains, sure Ill take a stab..ever have a dog die on you? all dogs die, even if they die at a vets office it is not illegal to dispose of the remains yourself in many areas, I know lots of people that have dog remains on thier property, even if just family pets...shit my mom had a greyhound that went outside ran a lap around the yard, came in an croaked...we had a cat here that a small puppy chased around for a mintue or two , playing in the house, and the cat just fell over dead..we had it creamated, but also could have legally just buried him in the yard in a shallow grave if we wanted to.
not sure if he had any livestock at all, or ever got in animals to slaughter, to feed his dogs or his family, but some people can and do slaughter animals quite regularly, and many people give dogs food they cut up themselves..
again I get where you are coming from, but most of it is subjective to the people that come, and neighbors complain all the time, if you have the wrong neighbors. as to operating without a license, that is a no-no for sure. but that is the least of the list of bad things a person can do, not having a license can just mean he did not pay a renewal fee, could be as simple as that, being late on a payment..
We just had the government shut down a garage sale we had,fpor a few hours becuase they passes a "safety" law that states you need to pay a 25 dollar fee to put up a sign on the parkway for a garage sale, it wass deemed to be unsafe, becuase we did not pay the fee, but once I paid the fee, it was then all of the sudden deemed safe...
anyone care to explain how you can get 22 ABUSE charges on 7 dogs, that "appeared to be neglected"
and explain how you can get 15 charges for abandonment of 7 dogs, while you are home when they come to property?
