  1. Leaving a 3-month-old pup in a car with his mouth taped shut while the owner went inside a casino for two hours and discovered by police was called willful, malicious torture of an animal. It was 113°F outside. It could have been 20 degrees hotter inside the car. Why is the willful, malicious torture of horses ignored by law enforcement agencies????
