• In the US, put to sleep healthy dog bequest hostess
Many owners of pets soul is not fer in their pets and would never part with them. And a woman from the city of Chesterfield, Virginia, United States, loved his dog Emma and even made it to his will - the woman wanted a dog was buried with her. However, the hostess had died before his favorite.
Mistress of dogs, Kallop Anita Thompson, died at the age of 67, and on March 22 8 March this year was appointed cremation Emma - perfectly healthy cheerful dog, brown Shih Tzu. The dog was taken to overexposure to one of the shelters, where the staff were horrified to learn the fate of Emma.
"We asked several times to renew their documents and leave the dog here. We would have easily been able to find her a new home ", - said Carrie Jones, managing the shelter. Carrie offered to give a dog like all the other family, and "temporarily" - until its natural death, after which the dog would be cremated and be carried to the grave of her first mistress. "But in the end they still came on March 22, and drugged her."
In some states of the USA pets are considered property of the owners, and they may well decide to euthanize your pet, even if it is completely healthy and is not a threat to others. "Every time we have to put to sleep the animal, it is difficult for us, - says the actions of his colleague vet Kenny Lucas. - On the one hand, we took an oath not to harm, but on the other there is a law. This decision, which we then go home and it bothers us. "
In Virginia, where there was a story, is not officially allowed to be buried in the town cemetery of people and animals together. However, this prohibition does not apply to private cemeteries, burials in churches and in private areas - and it is this "hole-in-law" and took advantage of Anita hostess Shih Tzu. Of the law, it was all right, there were no violations. On the side of ethics and morality - all realize that this is not normal.
The story hit the press and the people began to resent the fact that such a possibility is still there. "Everyone should go to jail for it," - wrote Rod Ryan, a leading radio company in Houston. And the lawyer Organization for Animal Protection Amanda Howell also believes that, from a moral point of view in the story are all to blame. It is one thing to bury a man of the dust of your pet - and quite another to put to sleep this pet to bury a man. "Blame primarily dogs hostess - Amanda says. - But the veterinarian and executive service also bear their guilt. Artist could ask the judge before blindly execute his will. Usually, judges do not support this type of implementation of the last will of a person, even in those states where it is impossible to challenge the will entirely. "
"We need to remove the law that declares the animal's personal property - adds Amanda. - Pets - it is the person, not your collection of music CDs. "
