A friend of mine's wife saw a man in a white Dodge Ram pickup stop his truck and put a puppy on the side of Woodrow Road.

And while I would prefer this man be beaten stupid for it, some jail time is the only legal thing that can be done.

There are options for people who have unwanted pets to find a place for them to be re-homed. You should never abandon animals in the country assuming they'll be OK. Or, even worse, hoping they'll die so you don't have to worry about it anymore.

But the best course of action is to stop the ridiculous buying of animals as pets by people who aren't willing to have that pet for life.

Here is the Facebook post about the puppy, who I think is still in need of a new home.
