Thou Who Killeth Not the Beast Shall Be Charged With Cruelty

More from CBC today on the ridiculous turf war waged against the Toronto Humane Society by the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. This week's cruelty charges against five top Humane Society officials are summarized as follows:
“The animals are left to catch horrible diseases, die in their crates based on the euthanasia policy and refusing to let the veterinarians who work here to do their jobs,” Christopher Avery, lawyer for the OSPCA, charged.*
(*Translation for the uninitiatiated - "do their jobs" = kill animals)

The Toronto Humane Society's reluctance to "euthanize" is apparently considered cruelty by some in the animal welfare business.

I am glad these well-meaning folks don't have police powers in our hospitals.

What a sorry spectacle.
