Update on Patrick, Dog Found Nearly Dead in Gargage Dumpster
Remember Patrick, the 1 year old pit bull from NJ that was pretty much left for dead in the garbage dumpster?
Here’s an update on what’s going on
1) Good news. Patrick is recovering well. Still pretty weak, but his health is making progress:
2) There is a battle for custody over Patrick.
According to the Examiner,
Associated Humane Societies filed a 40 page motion claiming legal custody and owners of Patrick.
They want him moved to the Popcorn Park Zoo where abused and neglected animals reside.
The organization is trying to vacate a court order signed last month allowing Patrick to stay at Garden State Veterinary Specialists where Patrick has been recovering, until the end of the trial and court outcome of Kisha Curtis.
In addition the city of Newark claims the Associated Humane Societies do not have legal custody.
3) Kisha Curtis, the woman from Newark, NJ charged for crime of starving and abandoning Patrick, declared… (surprise surprise)… NOT guilty.
If convicted, she can face up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine and community service.
Yes, ladies and gentleman.
Starve a dog to a point of its death and you get a slap on the wrist.
These demonstrators agree:
