My third grade teacher once told me, “Never say or do anything that you wouldn’t want to see splashed all over the morning newspaper.” Words to live by.
In this day and age, one would think the same goes with social media. One would also think that this is something a reporter would be privy to.
But not Delta Dunklin Democrat reporter, Laura Ford. It’s likely she’s learning though, since she publicly posted her advertisement of two dogs, in need of a home, on Facebook- if advertisement is what you want to call it.
What do you really know about the animal rescues that you support? Do you really look at the work they do and how they spend all those hard earned dollars that you donate? You certainly want your donations to go where they make the most impact, right?
Petix and supporters of Kennett Humane Society have cried foul and contended that there was no proof, but here it is in black and white.
All hell broke loose in Southeast Missouri and the Bootheel after the article “Allegations of Kennett Humane Department gassing animals at Malden facility” hit the information highway. Texts, private messages, telephones, and social media pages blew up with the news. Each ticket was completed, per drop off, by the Kennett Humane Shelter, and signed by Petix.
Not only was Kennett Humane Department euthanizing animals against everything they claimed, they were putting them to death by gassing, one of the most barbaric methods possible. Instead of humanely euthanizing the animals at any number of area veterinarians they were putting them through the shear torture, terror, and agony of slow suffocation.
