Yahoooooooo!

Brian Cluxton

Fantastic news! I hope he dies a slow and painful death for all the dogs he's murdered. Yes, murdered.

OMG!!!! that asshole killed one pit bull with pink toe nail polish too many.

RIP little puppy; your sacrifice will save many of your brothers and sisters.

This news had made my day. All of the pups are getting extra goodies today to celebrate

Slappy

Its about f-ing time! YAY FOR DOGS!

Hate to be a kill joy but "Mr. Gerken also said he will ask the county's administration to appoint Bonnie Mitchell, the current dog pound manager, as the interim dog warden while a search takes place."

This person is the one that should have been directly over-seeing the killing of those puppies.

What great news!

KC KS Kills Dogs

I don't know how many readers caught this in the Toledo Blade's "Letters to the Editor" section. If there ever was a question about who's side PeTA is on, this answers it. Read the following letter from PeTA.

Owners to blame for county kill rate


We thank Lucas County Dog Warden Tom Skeldon and his staff for putting animals' best interests first by not haphazardly adopting out dogs just to make the pound's euthanasia statistics look better.

No one wants to end the need for euthanasia more than the brave people who hold the syringe, but pushing dogs out the door like clearance merchandise or releasing vulnerable breeds into a world that holds only suffering and death for so many of them isn't the way to do that. Until the number of homeless dogs is reduced through spaying and neutering, euthanasia will stay a heartbreaking necessity.

Those upset about the number of dogs euthanized for lack of homes should direct their anger at those who are directly responsible: breeders, pet stores, and people who don't spay or neuter their animals. Animal care and control professionals should be supported in their daily fight to do the right thing for animals and for the important work they do to protect animals and the community.

Now we just have to hope there is a hell for Skeldon to go rot in.

Hopefully, he is the first of many pro-BSL dog-haters who are about to get theirs.

Thanks for the letter from PETA, I've sent it on to the guys at PETAWATCH.com for the edification of people this side of the planet.

Nothing proves the insanity that is PETA more succinctly than this letter of thanks to that murderer Skeldon.

This has made my day!

I am really hoping his replacement will be more enlightened, including smart enough to place pit bull puppies up for adoption and fair enough to allow reputable rescues to take some of the pit bulls.

Mostly, I'm just glad that next year will be that much brighter for any dog unfortunate enough to end up at that shelter.

This man has been at the forefront preaching hatred of pit bulls for many years. I as a Humane Officer now retired had many concerns of this man and his teachings of hatred towards pit bulls and the handling of them to dog wardens all over the state. Finally he has done something good to benefit the dogs he was empowered over. His hatred will be his own undoing. To the county commissioners that over saw this man, shame on you. But we all know that the good ole boy system rules in government and this was obviously the case here. They are all relatives does'nt that seem funny that the system is so curoupt that no one could ever stop this monster? Thank God he is gone and now someday will face the ultimate judge himself!

When I first heard of this Savage being in the same neo-Nazi outfit with Bryant of Ontario (now being an alleged Murderer he started enjoying Murdering Cyclists with his car)Pizano and Gallagher of Dade,the Denver Holocaust Hinklepooper and D.Kelley it was only a week and a bit ago,I felt a little ill,but now Scumbag Skeldon gone Hurrah Hurrah Hurrah.BSl certainly is starting not to look to good to those failing politicos.
Karma tells me that the next Murderous Wanker too be knocked off his pedestal MçGuinty of Ontario.
Well done Lucas county and the one sensible and decent Commissioner.

We couldnt be happier! Its people like him that help to give pit bulls their bad rap.. Hell last i heard it was scientifically proven that dalmations and golden retrievers were more tempramental towards children. You see when I'm telling my three year old about bad people in this world you fall in this catagory. How shameful!!

I TRIED TO ADOPT A DOG FROM THERE AND THEY TOLD ME IT WAS UNFIT FOR ADOPTION BECAUSE YOU COULD NOT WALK IT ON A LEASH. THAT PLACE LOVED TO KILL DOGS....THANK YOU KONOP FOR GETTING RID OF THAT MURDERER.

Melissa

Seriously? ppl who work with animals shouldnt ever think of killing them. When are we going to get ppl who actually care about animal welfare in these positions? I comprehend in some cases euth is a more humane option, its all about quality of life, but Im sorry, 10 puppies? I bet they were healthy too. Makes me sick. Some times you can tell alot about someone by their face. I can tell by this mans face he is NOT one to be trusted.
