Animal control statement
Abigail Lightning-Bingham, Chief of Animal Welfare Enforcement, stated:
“For any animal lover or for just any human being in general to think that an innocent creature that cannot speak up for itself suffered so egregiously and at the hands of someone he trusted. There’s nothing worse then that, harming something that can’t speak for itself or defend itself.”
