Skip to comments.Woman Arrested for Saving Dogs & Cats [semi-satire]
Posted on 10/03/2018 10:34:27 AM PDT by John Semmens
In North Carolina, Tammie Hedges rescued 27 dogs and cats from drowning when Hurricane Florence hit the state. She provided shelter, food, and medicine to animals fleeing the flooding. After the storm ended she turned the rescued animals over to government authorities who promptly arrested her for operating a shelter without a license. She is currently out of jail on a $10,000 bond.
North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services spokesman, Henry Hoseman explained that Ms. Hedges lacked the proper credentials to undertake the actions she took. She may have felt that she was doing the right thing, but she is not qualified to make that determination. We have rules for a reason. If we allow exceptions based on presumed extraordinary contingencies we open the door to an untold string of abuses and the inevitable tragedies that would ensue.
Hoseman discounted the value of saving these animals lives by pointing out that our state is overrun with dogs and cats. The fate of a couple of dozen pales in comparison with our obligation to enforce the laws against unlicensed animal care. If we make an example of Ms. Hedges others may be deterred from similarly taking the law into their own hands.

What a moron. What is wrong with these people. She did what any normal good hearted person would do under those circumstances. They have to be Democrats in charge.
Henry Hoseman needs to be removed by the elected authority, and charges dropped, or they need to be recalled
Can a society that celebrates infanticide be expected to praise saving pets? Actually, yes. Baby humans are pure evil when compared to puppies and kittens.
Just an example of “Deep State Think”, even if it is satire.
She wasn’t arrested for sheltering the animals. She was arrested for administering medications to said animals. There was dispute as to whether the medications were prescription-only.
“Hedges is facing a dozen misdemeanor charges and accused of practicing veterinary medicine without a license. Specifically, she is charged with administering medications such as amoxicillin and a topical antibiotic ointment to the animals, according to the nonprofits Facebook page. The group said she is also facing one count of solicitation of a Schedule IV controlled substance for asking for a donation of tramadol, a prescription pain medication used for animals.”
Henry Hoseman has a face and an address. Run the little Nazi nit out of town.
