Pet Owner Charged With Animal Cruelty

This is the title of the news I just read over the internet. Yes, that will happen when pet owners will abuse their pets and not take care of them the way they should be taken cared of.

"NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The owner of a Hickman County farm where over 700 animals were seized in June is facing charges. According to press release from the state Attorney General's office, Patricia Adkission is facing 24 felony counts of aggravated cruelty, nine counts of other misdemeanors for animal cruelty and a variety of other misdemeanors in connection with the raid.

Authorities said the raid at the Lyles, Tenn., farm was the largest in Tennessee's history. The investigation was so massive that it took officials days to take animals away from the area.

Investigators said the animals were housed in various buildings throughout the 92-acre property. Many of them were without water and living in cages covered in feces."

I hope the rescued animals will find a good and loving homes.

Dogs catch the yawns from people..



LONDON - Dogs find human yawns contagious, suggesting they have a rudimentary capacity for empathy, British scientists said on Wednesday.

Although yawning is widespread in many animals, contagious yawning — a yawn triggered by seeing others yawning — has previously only been shown to occur in humans and chimpanzees.

It turns out, however, that man's best friend is highly sensitive to catching human yawns, with 72 percent of 29 dogs tested yawning after observing a person doing so.

Writing in the journal Biology Letters, Atsushi Senju and colleagues at London's Birkbeck College said this behavior showed dogs were skilled at reading human social cues and "may relate to their capacity for empathy."
