Video of Mari, a feral dog, being impounded at MAS on October 13, 2011:

I showed this clip to Billy.  He is not involved in shelter pet advocacy nor is he a trained animal handler – he’s just an owner who loves pets and believes in being kind to them.  After watching the video, Billy asked me, “Couldn’t they have put him in a box or something?”

How is it that an untrained pet owner sees this and knows it’s wrong but the trained professionals at MAS do not?  If you have a spouse/co-worker/friend who is not a trained animal handler and can watch this clip, please share their response in the comments.  I’d like to hear what other “regular” people think (since many of us here are just those wacky animal advocates and everything we say is crazy).
