Exclamation  A dog was rescued after being frozen to the ground
On Monday night (Jan 6, I believe), Dubois County (somewhere in Indiana) Sheriff's Department responded to an anonymous call of animal neglect. They found a dog was left outside by the owner and was frozen to the ground in the freezing temperature. It took half an hour for a deputy to free the dog with warm water. It was also noted that the dog weighted only half the weight of healthy dog of the same breed/size.

Now the sheriff's department had filed paper to seek charges against the dog owner. If success, it will come with a $5,000 fine and an one-year jail sentence.

What can I say? Don't leave your pets in the harsh weather...

I saw that story and it broke my heart! It makes me so angry that people allow things like this to happen to their animals. I hope the charge IS successful because that owner is disgusting.

RE: A dog was rescued after being frozen to the ground
I am glad you posted this topic. It is important to be aware of animal cruelty in all forms. Usually, I just here about dog fights, but cruelty takes place in many forms. Another main point that I want to make is this: Obviously, neighbors must have known that this dog was being neglected, otherwise, how would they have noticed that the dog looked dead. Without even reading the link, I know that if a dog looks frozen he doesn't look alive. I guess, some people want to mind their own business. But animals cannot speak our language and they need humans to help them when they are hurt and/or neglected.
