Couple convicted for neglect of dogs. (ABC News Online)
Without knowing anything more about the circumstances, what are the odds that this couple of scumbags defend themselves by saying (cue belligerent tone) that they were looking after the dogs, and weren't doing anything wrong, and it's all the fault of some neighbour who doesn't like dogs and complained about the noise?
Please note that the article, as extraordinarily short as it is, mentions 100 dogs kept in fenced compounds, and "malnourished, with mange, eye ulcers and open sores".
Rot in hell.
