Will The Objection To Courtroom Service Dogs Be Sustained?

Filed under: Legal MattersDog

Courtroom Service Dogs

For over 20 years service dogs have been used to comfort child victims and witnesses, and the practice has become relatively common.

Dogs can have an incredible easing effect on a child. Diane Silman the head of the Ozark Foothills Child Advocacy Center in southern Missouri claimed one time,

"A four-year-old once remained engaged in an interview for about an hour, which is pretty amazing"

But now, this buddy buddy system may come to an end.

Of course, some frigg NYC lawyer has became the first in the nation to appeal his client's conviction of raping and impregnating a 15-year-old girl because a dog was used to comfort her during her testimony at trial. The sleaze ball lawyer claims,

"The stress witnesses feel when they have to testify at trial tends to undo falsehoods. Removing the stress deprives the defendant of a fair trial."

Right, cause we all know that dogs love to convince people to lie under oath. Ugh!

The judge's decision in the case will likely affect the courtroom use of the dogs nationwide.

Horrible Pet Owner Of The Week: Dude Jailed For Keeping Deer In His Trunk

Horrible Pet Owner Of The Week: Dude Jailed For Keeping Deer In His Trunk

We've heard of a deer in the headlights, but never inside the car!

David Charrier just ended his 10-day sentence for keeping a living deer in the back of his trunk of his car.

The Maine resident carried the injured animal (possibly Bambi's mom?) in back of his car for over eight hours before taking it to a local butcher.

When the LIVING animal was given presented the butcher was like "WFT"?? The confused Butcher called the cops who told him to euthanize the deer.

The butcher then called the Maine Warden Service.

12 Chickens Cook In Owner's Parked Car

Is this the Coronel Sander's secret recipe?

Police in Kentucky say 12 chickens were left in a hot car while their owners went shopping at Walmart.

One of the chickens died and the others were taken to a shelter after someone reported they'd been left in the car for about 30 minutes.

Officers in Georgetown, where it happened, say the windows were left open just a crack.

The National Weather Service says the high temperature Wednesday in nearby Lexington was 94 degrees.

Police say any charges against the owners will be up to Animal Control.
