DEC 2010 - SEAN CRABTREE OWNS 2 GERMAN SHEPHERDS IN YUBA CITY CA.  HE IS A CONTRACTOR WITH BEALE AIR FORCE BASE IN LONG BEACH CA.  HE KEPT HIS PETS SAFE - HE THOUGHT- IN A WOODEN PRIVACY FENCE-------HE NOW OWES $35,000 VET BILL COMPLIMENTS OF THE NEIGHBORS 4 PIT BULLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ROCKY IS 7 YRS OLD  AND IS TRAINED IN SEARCH AND RESCUE.  HE SUSTAINED LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES IN LATE DECEMBER WHEN 4 PIT BULLS ATE THROUGH THEIR WOOD PRIVACY FENCE.  ROCKY FOUGHT HARD TO PROTECT HIS SISTER, MISSY, WHO LOST TEETH IN THE MAYHEM.  SEAN WAS AT WORK AND A DOG-WALKER FOUND ROCKY IN A POOL OF BLOOD. THE WOMAN CALLED SEAN THEN RUSHED ROCKY TO A VET IN YUBA CITY.  ROCKY WAS THEN TAKEN TO U.C. DAVIS VET MEDICAL TEACHING HOSPITAL AND THEY PROVIDED URGENT, STATE-OF-THE-ART MEDICAL CARE.  THE DOG HAD MANY SERIOUS BITE WOUNDS AND HIS RIGHT BACK LEG WAS RIPPED APART. HE WAS ON A RESPIRATOR BECAUSE HIS LUNGS WERE HURT FROM BITES TO HIS CHEST. 

CRABTREE BROUGHT ROCKY AND MISSY HOME WHEN THEY WERE 4 WKS OLD.  THEY ARE MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY.  ROCKY PARTICULARLY HAD A DISPOSITION THAT MADE HIM A PRIME CANDIDATE FOR SEARCH AND RESCUE.  AFTER CRABTREE RETURNED HOME FROM DEPLOYMENT TO HURRICANE KATRINA, HE AND ROCKY WENT BACK TO NEW ORLEANS AND SEARCHED FOR DAYS AND FOUND MANY CADAVERS. AFTER 3 WEEKS IN THE HOSPITAL AND 24 HR CARE FROM SEAN, ROCKY IS TRYING TO HEAL.


                            MY COMMENTS

MY FENCE LOOKS JUST LIKE THIS ONE. THERE ARE 4 PIT BULLS NEXT DOOR TO US.   THE OWNERS OF THESE PITS RENTED A HOME ON ANOTHER STREET BEFORE THEY MOVED HERE.  THE NEIGHBORS ON THAT STREET TOLD US, AMONG OTHER THINGS,  THAT THE BOARDS ON THEIR WOOD PRIVACY FENCE HAD BEEN GNAWED UP AND THE PIT BULL OWNERS WERE TOLD TO REPLACE  THE DAMAGED BOARDS BEFORE THEY MOVED OUT. THERE WAS A CHAIN LINK FENCE AROUND THEIR YARD TO KEEP THEM FROM GETTING TO THE WOOD FENCE - BUT THEY GOT TO IT ANYWAY!  WE ONLY ALLOW OUR 2 FAMILY PETS THAT ARE GETTING OLDER,  JUST AS WE ARE OLDER, TO GO  OUT IN OUR BACK YARD AND STAY JUST LONG ENOUGH TO USE THE BATHROOM. IN FACT, WE HAVE A BARRIER OF THE FLOWER POTS I ONCE PLANTED FLOWERS IN PLACED IN A STRAIGHT LINE FROM OUR HOUSE TO THE BACK FENCE BLOCKING OFF 1/3 OF OUR YARD NEXT TO THE FENCE WHERE THOSE 4 PIT BULLS ARE.   OUR DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GO WITHIN 30 FEET OF OUR FENCE . IF THEY DARE BARK OUT ONE TIME, WE RUN GET A "TREAT" TO GET THEM BACK IN --DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING TO SET THOSE PITS OFF!!!!  OUR FAMILY DOESN'T GET THE EXERCIZE  WE ONCE DID !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO I GUESS WE NEED TO GO TAKE THAT CLASS THAT WAS IN A STORY IN THE PAPER SATURDAY MORNING, JAN 22  ON -DECATUR ANIMAL CONTROL IS GOING TO TEACH A CLASS ON HOW TO SPOT ANIMAL ABUSE AND INCLUDED IN IT IS "WHEN OBESITY BECOMES ABUSE."   THE CITIZENS OF DECATUR AL REALLY NEED THEIR TAX MONEY USED FOR LESSONS FROM ANIMAL CONTROL ON OBESE DOGS.  WE THOUGHT FROM THE STORY IN THE DECATUR DAILY LAST MONTH THAT ANIMAL CONTROL EMPLOYEES WERE WALKING AROUND IN THE DARK ---COULDN'T PAY THE LIGHT BILL ---NOW  THEY ARE GIVING CLASSES TO ONLY THOSE WHO SIGN UP, ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER, FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO RECOGNIZE DOG ABUSE.  HERE WE GO AGAIN ---IS IT JUST ME ---WHY DO I THINK THAT PEOPLE IN DECATUR AL ALREADY KNOW HOW TO RECOGNIZE ABUSED ANIMALS  AND ANOTHER STORY IN THE DECATUR DAILY  COULD REACH  THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AND INFORM THEM ON HOW TO RECOGNIZE ABUSED ANIMALS ........AND THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO USE TAX PAYERS MONEY FOR LIGHTS AND HEAT TO DO IT.  I'M JUST SAYING .........BESIDES, THERE ARE MANY REASONS ANY DOG IS OVERWEIGHT...ONE BEING THYROID PROBLEMS.......IS DECATUR ANIMAL CONTROL PRACTICING VETERINARY MEDICINE NOW?...MOST PEOPLE WHO OWN DOGS HAVE THEIR OWN VET AND THIS IS A PRIVATE, PERSONAL MATTER.....ON THE OTHER HAND,. WHAT IS A PUBLIC MATTER --- IS DANGEROUS/VICIOUS DOGS....THOSE DOGS THAT HAVE THE PROPENSITY TO EAT THROUGH WOOD FENCES AND METAL FENCES AND HARM CITIZENS OF DECATUR AL.
