BACKGROUND

(Kern County, CA) Lacey, a 6-pound terrier, was allegedly abandoned for days, reportedly having been tied to a tree, hit with a golf club and sprayed in the eyes with bleach. Animal control officers discovered her on December 4, 2010.

Lacey has since undergone extensive veterinary treatment and is reportedly undergoing rehabilitation in a loving home.

The dog’s owner, Robert Gonzales, has been charged with felony animal cruelty as well as three possession-related charges. Providing yet another tragic example of the link between cruelty to animals and violence toward humans, this defendant is reportedly the subject of a domestic violence restraining order as well.

saddened and angry
what does one feel first
when one sees
the worst of the worst
but we must keep a clear
eye and a level head
so we can do something
constructive, instead

    I hope they do the same thing to the human that did this..
    Of course a golf club swung by a human to a dog is more painful that a golf club swung by a human to a human.. this dog is so small.. we need to have laws in place that keep people like this from ever being in contact with another animal in their life as well as strict, severe and painful punishment for the person that did it. putting this person in jail is not enough! Fines, prison, hard labor and a good treatment of what he did to this dog equivalent in pain and severity is due!
