2002 Aieoshekai Many Harvey evacuees in Houston were told they were not allowed to bring their animals on rescue boats...
890 davey1960 "By law, if pet owners give their animals to a shelter before a hurricane or major storm hits, they are unable to get them back once the event has passed. " Assholes.
552 farijuana I saw a few posts from someone on Instagram who fosters dogs. A boat came to help evacuate them but when they saw she had a bunch of dogs , they turned their boat around and left them all. They eventually got help but I don't think everyone left their pet behind maliciously. I'm sure there were some people who tried to stay but the floods hit worse than they expected and they had to make a difficult choice. They should not be prosecuted for that. Especially when they likely already lost basically everything.
164 cvavianq Run free my snake, free into the Everglades!
1324 double_chicken > Many of the animals had been tied to poles or left in pens outside. What the actual fuck is wrong with people.
559 f467 Idk how I feel about it. Let's say you don't have the means to totally evacuate but you can go to a shelter nearby. A lot of them don't allow you to bring pets and those that do fill up quickly. So what are you supposed to do? Leaving the pets outdoors is fucked up, but putting a dog in a pen indoors with food and water is probably the best option.
25 firematt422 Day before: "Don't worry about your pets, you have to save your and your children's lives." Day after: "You are responsible for their well being and we will prosecute to the full extent of the law."
40 whatevertho So more criminalization of poverty
134 DavidAtWork17 I feel for the pets, but does the Palm Beach prosecutor's office really have nothing better to do than to threaten evacuees? How about the scam artists who target both victims and relief efforts after natural disasters like this?
