    We desperately need those that have the authority to stand up and give Yarbrough some serious prison time – it is so frustrating to see animal abusers get little to no punishment for their cruelty. To allow animals to be treated so callously by those that have the power to get justice for these innocent beings infuriates me. This punk should be sitting in jail getting victimized by predatory inmates.

    How fortunate someone saw this POS and went to investigate the fate of his dog! Something about him must have triggered suspicion and thank goodness it did. I hope he gets more than the usual “slap on the wrist” for this!

      Wtg for the concerned person to go the site where the dog was hanging! I would have done the same. After he/she witnessed the POS came back without the dog was a good call. Kudos to that person! Btw hope it went well with Penney and her court date about Molly.
