A sick society at large
Society is getting sicker, it makes me sad and mad that these people are called human, there is nothing human in strangling a dog or painting graffiti on dead animals.
Michigan Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the bizarre desecration of a female black pit bull terrier. The dog was found dumped on a Detroit street with a rope tied tightly around her neck and white graffiti spray-painted all over her body.
The dog, believed to be two or three years old, had the letters “P B S” scrawled on the left side of her body while other markings were painted in white on her back, sides and legs. Animal cruelty investigators are waiting for the results of a necropsy to determine how the pit bull died.
Ironically, MHS officials say the graffiti taggers were probably not the ones that killed the dog. Detroit, which is estimated to have a thousand homeless dogs, is seeing an odd trend in graffiti artists who target the bodies of dead animals.
MHS spokesperson Kevin Hatman said for taggers, a dead dog is “as much a blank canvas as a wall or abandoned house.”
“Unfortunately, a dead dog is part of the aesthetic of the city,” said Hatman. “There’s graffiti all over the city, a dead dog is like a brick wall.”
MHS investigators have started to consider the trend to be “random acts of cruelty.” Hatman chalks it up to a new way to exploit pit bull terriers, which make up 35 to 40 percent of the dogs rescued by MHS and up to 80 percent of local rescue groups.
Michigan Humane Society has set up a hotline to identify the taggers and the people responsible for the death of the pit bull. Confidential tips can be reported at (313) 872-3401.

graffiti artists ?
Not my choice of words.
In a society which praises and pays a fortune to an idiot who presents a dead sheep as 'art', what can we expect?
