THLN celebrates animal deaths at Sambuca

It appears that the Texas (In)Humane Legislative Network (THLN) thinks they have something to celebrate.

Click on the headline below to be nauseated by the story (but don't bother posting a negative comment, as it will be deleted):

I suppose the THLN sycophants' celebration includes killing the Companion Animal Protection Act (CAPA). Killing this act means that Texas shelters can keep the current modus operandi.

Nathan Winograd's blog post contains details of what THLN fought to keep:

Thanks to opponents, pounds in Texas will continue killing animals cruelly (gassing them to death). Thanks to these groups, they will continue turning away rescue groups and then killing the animals those rescue groups offered to save. They will, like the Houston Humane Society, systematically slaughter dogs they claim are “pit bulls” for just being dogs. And they will continue to lie to the public, claiming they are doing all they can to save lives; even as they have shown they will do whatever is necessary to defend their ability to kill animals and to protect that ability for others, even in the face of readily available lifesaving alternatives they simply refuse to implement.

There's not much left to say.

Except fuck you, THLN.
