Texas Town Starving Dogs to Death and Then Dumping Their Bodies in Ditches

This is unbelievable.

From the article:

Nestled in a ditch less than two-tenths of a mile east of the city maintenance shop here rests a lumpy, gray, plastic garbage bag.

Inside it is the fly-ridden, decomposing carcass of what was a black, medium-sized dog.

Municipal workers here have been starving dogs to death and irresponsibly tossing their carcasses in ditches inside and around the city limits for months, as ordered by the city manager, according to former city worker Abel Escovedo and Mayor Jose Calin Guzman.

Along with other city maintenance workers, Escovedo said he was ordered by City Manager Ernesto Ayala Jr. to pick up stray dogs in town and keep them at the maintenance shop for a week.

“We’ve been dumping dogs,” he said. “(Workers) went at least 10 times in the last two months.”

This is so disgusting I won't even bother commenting on it.
