Teens, Hate, And A Bulldog
A TRUE NEWS STORY
by Roberta Lee, DD., PhD., ND. TheDogPlace Science EditorEmerson said, “ You can judge a society by the way they treat their animals.” If that is the case, then I will let you judge for yourself, how WE as a society, will be judged as stories such as the one below circulate around the globe.
As the government has managed to step into the homes of every parent in America, and tell us how we will raise our future generations; parents and educators alike are being held hostage by the youth of this country. Parents are terrified to discipline their children in the year 2000. A spanking can lead to dire consequences for the entire family. When psychology doesn’t work, parents are left with children that terrorize the family, their schools and society at large. We have become a society that is being governed by those that are under eighteen, and it is frightening. And when it is not the children that are blackmailing society, then it is the youthful parents of those teens that are the progeny of the same permissive rearing.
The way we treat animals is a mirror image of the way we perceive not only ourselves, but those that we encounter in our daily lives. So, be warned, that, “to spare the rod, IS to spoil the child.” YOU will live with the consequences, as in the example below:
The following story was reported to this Website by Donna Ashbrook who said:
Here is one of the most horrific stories you will ever hear. It is frightening to think of what kind of children we are raising, but, even more scary is the mentality of a principal of the high school !! Do whatever you can to get publicity on this dirty little secret.
At this point, it is being swept under the rug in both Nevada and California.

>> Hi, My name is Claudia Baker, I am the secretary of the Great Dane Club of Las Vegas, NV. A horrible thing has happened, that all dog fanciers should know about as reported by Bob DeCastro, of KVBC channel 3. www.kvbc.com >>
Blue, a female registered English Bulldog and mascot of Centennial High school, was stolen from her home. She was found several days later bleeding, chained and staked to the 50 yard line right before a football game.
Blue was found wearing the visiting team’s Mojave High School’s T-shirt. Blue had been kicked, beaten black and blue with a blunt object, allowed to be gnawed on by a Pit Bull Terrier badly enough to have gaping wounds over her entire body.
The alleged “GANG” of football players had turned her spiked collar inside out so that the spikes dug into her neck, then they placed a bowl of water just out of her reach.
It was confirmed that Blue had been SEXUALLY abused either by the boys themselves, or a blunt object and then urinated upon.
Blue was treated at the ARK Animal Clinic and has been released to her owners, but she has had a tough time battling infections.
The principle of Mojave High School has downplayed the event not wanting to spoil the school’s image, and has even complained about police interviewing his football players over, “a stupid dog.”
The Centennial High School students have raised over $1000.00 as a reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of those responsible; but the “Code of Silence” prevails among the Mojave students.
I personally called and talked to Donna at the Ark Animal Clinic. Blue is home and doing well. She is over her infections, but will she ever be over being betrayed by humans that at one time she so totally trusted?
I contacted KVBC Channel 3, and I spoke with Deborah at the news desk. ALL of the above is indeed true. All of it. At this time there are five football players that have been arrested and released on bond. They face one felony count for stealing Blue, and one misdemeanor count for animal abuse. There are more arrests pending.
Although this case is truly horrible, it is only one in a long string of such cases that are in full swing in our country. What are we, as adults going to do about it? Are we just going to shake out heads and let it go by, or are we going to speak out, and demand that parents be allowed to be parents again. This means not only loving your child, but teaching them the responsibility of being an adult.
Remember where this happened; Las Vegas, NV
Remember the high school that wants to hush it up; Mojave High School.
Remember, what was done to Blue was ONLY a misdemeanor.
Remember, next time it could be a human female.
Now I will ask you this. If it had been your daughter that this had happened to, what would you do? I know that Blue is a dog, but is she any less a family member to HER FAMILY? If you sit and do nothing, how will YOU be judged?
WE ARE ALL CREATURES OF OUR CREATOR
IF YOU HAVE MEN WHO WILL EXCLUDE ANY OF GOD’S CREATURES FROM THE SHELTER OF COMPASSION AND PITY,
YOU WILL HAVE MEN WHO WILL DEAL LIKEWISE WITH THEIR FELLOW MEN.
