So it wasn't the lying, attempting to flee and resisting arrest wasn't why she got arrested and charged then?

Camp later paid $500 to the owners for Tank, and the dog now lives with her and her two other dogs.

You know, if she'd started off that way, she wouldn't have gotten arrested in the first place.

Step 1: Purchase another junkyard dog for cheap.
Step 2: Leave it outside in the cold, waiting for crazy dog lady to see it.
Step 3: ...
Step 4: Profit

Why is anybody surprised? It's almost a crime to do the right thing anymore. On the other hand; she did kinda steal the dog, lie to a cop, attempted to flee and resisted arrest.
 
2014-03-29 02:23:18 PM
She was fine until she got all self-righteous and decided to run away from the cops.  Sorry, she owns that charge.
 
2014-03-29 02:23:22 PM
Misleading headline is misleading.  She wasn't arrested for taking the dog.

FTFA: "The obstruction charge was filed for her behavior when the deputy attempted to take the dog from her."

Anyone who chains an animal should be chained themselves.

She absolutely should have been arrested for the crap she pulled at the vet. And I have 3 rescue dogs myself that I would gladly go to jail for if anyone hurt them, but even I'm not dumb enough to lie to the cops and try to flee.

Why not arrest the owners for abuse and neglect of the animal before you charge the lady who's just trying to save it from dying? Too much trouble? Forget about animal cruelty laws?

This.

There's a right way and a wrong way to handle these situations. The right way is to call animal control and have them come impound the dog. Then you can apply to adopt the dog if the owners aren't willing to improve the conditions the dog was in. Stealing someone's property, even if they are complete d-bags, is the wrong way to go about it.
 
2014-03-29 03:02:45 PM
It's amazing what these kind of people do to think they are helping.  If you see something wrong, call the cops.  You have no authority to do whatever you want.  She should go to jail for a week and 2,000$ fine.
/I expect to be reading about her "rescuing" another animal any day now.

Are we just supposed to take her word for it that she saved it from dying?
 
2014-03-29 03:13:23 PM
Not sure about the laws in her area, but in many places animals are legally considered to be property.  Had this happened where I live, the owner would have been charged with animal cruelty and the 'rescuer' with theft.  At $500, it would no longer be a misdemeanor theft, either.   The dog would have gone to the local Humane Society.

because it probably wasn't being abused by an objective measure? leaving a dog outside all the time isn't how i would treat a pet, but its not exactly abuse

What if I see a dog floating down the river towards a 500 foot waterfall and I can't swim but I have a chain, so I throw that chain across the river and the dog gets tangled and I pull him safely to shore but then the chain is so tangled I can't get it off but at least he's alive so I take him home and he lives in my yard and the chain gets stuck on a rock and now he's chained in my yard and all I was trying to do is help but now you hate me why do you hate me?!

If she gets any actual jail time though (as opposed to a fine or community service or probation or whatever) then the judge can suck my dick.

So if I see a baby unattended outside someone's front door in winter, that means I can take it home, lie to the doctor that it's my baby, refuse to hand it over to the police when ordered to do so, run away and take it home, and get to keep the baby without going to jail?

My only crime would be saving the baby from cruel parents who left it outside, so clearly the parent's should be charged. What's that, you have no evidence and only my word that I didn't kidnap the child form a safe situation? Too bad, all you have is my word, so clearly the parents should go to jail and I should get a hero's parade.

For a Cattle dog, it sort of is.  Being they are bred for working in the hot conditions of the Australian Cattle ranches, they do well in Texas, and other Southern States.  My Cattle dog loves to play in the snow, but after a bit, he starts to raise his paws up telling me his feet are getting too damn cold.  They don't have the coats or foot padding to be left outside in the cold.

When she can match a friend of my mother's who is terminally ill due to inoperable tumors which can't be held at bay at the same time by chemo, and occasionally sneaks into yards to rescue abused animals at 1am, I may clap more.

They rock. Our sweetie is still holding out at 14.5 years old. It is starting to get hard for her to walk but she is just as happy as when she was a pup. No more backflips when catching a Frisbee though. No Frisbees at all really, just sweet, sweet tennis balls.

Yep. Reminds me of that terrible recent story of a crazy woman who stole an outside dog from a fellow who was dying of cancer. He freely admits he had been too sick to care for the dog and had made arrangements for his brother to come take ownership of it, but then it just disappeared.

Turns out his batshiat-crazy neighbour cut a hole in the fence, swiped it and then had it put down, for some reason.

The poor guy was just hoping to see his dog again before he died.

This has happened to me - twice in one week upon returning to Portland after a hiatus. And I don't own a dog.
 
2014-03-29 05:43:49 PM
I volunteer for a rescue. We got an email with pictures and a call of a dog living in a filthy yard with open sores all over. One lady from the rescue went to the house, but she first called police in order to "keep the peace". She asked the owner if she could take the dog, he had been out there since he was 8 weeks old because he had an accident in the house...he is now 11 years old, anyway, the police told the guy to either give her the dog or they would file cruelty charges. We got the dog. He's been an the vet for about a month getting all kinds of treatments and he is now adopted and has his happy ending.

Most parents wouldn't sell their baby for $$ to the "thief" a few weeks later.  Sorta proves that they didn't actually give a damn about the dog.

God love you.

I kidnapped a dog once. I got off work, really late. It was about 20 degrees out, and my neighbor had a Boston Terrier pup on a chain without a dog house, even. They weren't home. It strained at its chain barking when I pulled in. She had had several other dogs for a few days then they mysteriously disappeared a few times before. It took an hour for the poor little guy to quit shaking. I called a BT rescue the next morning and they picked him up. Neighbor came home two days later and didn't even ask if anyone had seen him.

If the proper authorities had seen the dog before it was taken, the owners might have faced animal cruelty charges and the psycho dog thief would have likely gotten the dog for free as soon as it went up for adoption.

But by stealing the dog, the validity of any remaining evidence is destroyed, the former owners get a $500 payday, and now they can replace it with a free dog from craigslist and repeat the cycle of animal cruelty all over again.

No, I'm not. I'm a dispatcher for animal control and we handle cruelty cases all the time. We impound and adopt out many of those pets. The best thing is to report the owner. It's best for any current pets and it's also good for any future pets these d-bag owners might decide to get because they'll now have a history with their local animal control officers. They won't keep getting away with it. In the scenario you seem to favor, the owner could just go out and get another dog and start abusing that one.

TanHamster: Why do people talk to the police without a lawyer present?


Because: 1) they are afraid of the consequences of silence; and, 2) they don't know that the police can and do lie--with impunity--to extract information; and, 3) they don't realize that even if they are completely innocent, they could misspeak and later be made to look suspicious or deceitful in a court of law, helping to frame themselves.

So in your hatred of the police, you want to see animal abusers get a $500 payday and legal immunity while the good samaritan faces jail time, even when it would only have taken one anonymous phone call to put the real criminals in jail?
