    He should have taken them to the pound or the vet to get them euthanized. A humane execution is completely legal. How ironic.

    Charged only for one count? Why not 3 counts? Maybe someone needs to do the same to him.

    One count??? Why?

    They need to put this guy with the "armed and stupid" woman that shot someone over a PS, maybe they would save tax payers with the ending results, because neither one has a brain!

    One count? He should have been charged with 3 counts! There were 3 dogs abused and neglected! !!!

    I wonder if he was starving them to make them more desperate fighters. Newsflash: They don't fight well if they can't walk.

    I do not own any animals, I do have utmost respect for them, because somehow they've been able to acquire more rights than I have.
    But I can't see how someone can be so heartless as to confine something and then not feed it. How inhumane can one get. If you hate the animal that much show a little mercy and just kill it.

    Why one count?

    If this man is guilty of what he's been charged with, it's inexcusable.

    Not even someone who (allegedly) starves animals deserves to be treated that way.

    It is my (naive) hope that the animals were rescued and are now in good health, but I have my doubts.
