Abusive, cruel dog chaining is legal in many states

According to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Tethering, government agencies have concluded for years that keeping dogs chained was dangerous for both dog and human. Studies mentioned include the USDA statement in 1996 upholding that the continuous tethering of an animal was inhumane and a study from the Center of Disease Control which found that chained dogs were nearly 3 times more likely to bite.

You don’t need a study to know this. Logic and compassion should tell you it’s the wrong thing to do. Yet individuals continue this barbaric practice while state governments pass the bone.

What are your feelings regarding the outdoor chaining of dogs? If you want to stop the abuse, support the Pennsylvania Coalition Against TetheringDogs Deserve Better or any of the other anti-tethering groups across the country. If you disagree, we want to know why now.

    A large percentage of of the things you claim happens to be astonishingly appropriate and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light before. This particular piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. However at this time there is just one point I am not really too comfy with and while I try to reconcile that with the actual central theme of your position, let me observe just what the rest of your visitors have to point out.Well done.

    I do not believe in chaining dogs up period. Those that do this to their animals should be chained and left without food and water. I think it is a horrible crime and wish they would pass a law that outlaws it.
