    Addicts using pets to score drugs, veterinarians warn

    As animal lovers, veterinarians pride themselves on being trusting and caring people.

    They don’t want to believe anyone would intentionally hurt their pet, but in recent years, they’ve had to train themselves to look out for those who do just that as drug addicts turn toward animals to score pain medication they can’t easily access.

    “We would never think of people using or abusing these drugs,” Dr. Duffy Jones, owner of Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, told CBS News. “We typically believe what people tell us and we don’t want a pet in pain, but now we’re taking a bit more of a critical look at exactly what the client is like and what the dog is like — does it fit?”

    Vets say drug users are often looking for Tramadol, an oral medication that has opiate-like effects. WTSP
    Jones said the training starts in veterinarian school but has expanded to animal hospitals across the country as more and more report incidents with clients.

    “We’re always looking for signs of animal abuse,” Jones added.

    Twenty years ago, vets were told to closely examine pets, looking for recurring wounds and grilling their owners. Now, vets are told to take a close look at owners as well.

    “We’re really looking for things that don’t match up,” Jones said. “As we start to question the owner, we look at the owner’s response.”

    Vets are extra cautious when they’re seeing new clients. Those typically tend to be the people who try to score drugs, Jones said.

    “The ones being abused aren’t seeing us regularly; they’re moving from vet to vet,” he said.

    If the pet owners refuse to allow the hospital to get a hold of previous records or come in actively looking for drugs by name — like Tramadol, for example — that triggers an alarm for vets. Vets are then advised to look for a drug-free, safe alternative to treat the injured animal.

    Veterinarians across the country have reported cases of owners using their pets to get their hands on Tramadol, an oral medication that has opiate-like effects.

    “It’s a fairly safe narcotic,” Jones said. “We use it a lot. We like it and it’s relatively inexpensive.”

    Dr. John Gicking, a veterinarian at Blue Pearl in Tampa, Florida, told CBS affiliate WTSP he also looks for red flags in owners whenever he prescribes the drug.

    “Prescriptions are being used up faster or they have been reported to being spilled multiple times,” Gicking said.

    In Kentucky, police say, a dog owner named Heather Pereira, 23, cut her dog with razor blades just so she could take the dog’s pain medication in 2014. She was sentenced to four years in prison, WSB-TV reports.




    Then in Oregon last year, a raid led to 100,000 Tramadol pills and a rescue of over a dozen dogs, WTSP reports.

    At Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital, Jones said they haven’t had an instance where they thought somebody was abusing the animal just to get to the drugs. But he believes there have been some who are taking their dog’s medication and refilling it early.

    “It’s just as bad because if a dog’s in pain, they really need them,” Jones said.
    Waaaaaay beyond the pale; special place in Hell, let's call it the 8th circle, where everything they did to the animals to get their fucking drugs gets done to them x100,000. Forever.

    JFC. Piece of shit.

    A man in Washington state was reportedly sentenced to less than three years in prison on Thursday for raping a high school student as she died from a drug overdose and texting partially nude photos of her to his friends.

    According to The Associated Press, Brian Varela, 20, was handed the 34-month prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter, third-degree rape and unlawful disposal of remains in the death of Alyssa Noceda, 18.

    Noceda allegedly collapsed in Varela’s room shortly after taking the drugs, after which Varela proceed to take semi-nude photos of her while she was unconscious and text them to his friends.

    “LOL I think she od’d, still breathing,” Varela reportedly wrote in one text, while also adding that he was having sex with her while she remained unconscious to “pass the time.”

    Varela reportedly then played video games and fell asleep. He went to work the next day at Dairy Queen and one of his co-workers he told about the incident eventually notified local authorities, according to the report.

    Whoever passed a sentence of less than 3 years on that asshole is totally a POS.

    If he's lucky they'll only beat him a few times a week, lop his dick off and chop off a few fingers during those 34 months.

    The judge was pissed - her hands were tied by sentencing guide lines because he was a first time offender.

    “You might as well let him walk free with that kind of time,” Noceda’s aunt, Rachelle Palmer said of Varela's sentence, according to The Herald.

    “It’s a joke,” Noceda's mother, Gina Pierson said, according to KOMO-TV.

    In Washington state, offenders' sentences are determined in part using a scoring system that takes into account a number of factors, including previous offenses, Newsweekreported.

    That system traces its roots to the state's Sentencing Reform Act of 1981, which was designed to make sentences more uniform by giving judges less discretion, according to a 2016 blog post from Washington state lawyer Chris Van Vechten.

    The judge in Varela's case criticized the constraints: “I’m not sure the Legislature really contemplated something like this,” Krese said.

    WTF ?

    This thread has photos of horses shot with arrows, and tortured pets, and you think a government bureaucrat in the Dept of Health & Human Services who failed to respect one of her subordinate government bureaucrats is somehow equivalent ??

    (CNN)Before learning he would never walk out of prison Monday, Chris Watts sat at the defense table, head down and leg bobbing, as his mother told him she loved him and his slain wife's family called him a monster.

    Calling it perhaps "the most inhumane and vicious crime that I have handled out of the thousands of cases that I have seen," Judge Marcelo Kopcow handed down five life sentences -- three consecutive and two concurrent -- with no possibility of parole, in the deaths of Watts' daughters and pregnant wife.
    Watts also received an additional 48 years for the death of his unborn son, who was to be named Nico Lee, and 36 more years for crimes related to his disposal of the bodies.
    His hands were shackled at his waist and Watts wore an orange jumpsuit. He rarely looked up during the proceeding -- not even when his mother turned around to face him and tearfully said, "We have loved you from the beginning and we still love you now."


    The only time Watts spoke during the proceeding was when Kopcow asked him if he wished to deliver a statement. "No, sir," the former father replied.
    Before Watts was sentenced, Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke revealed horrific details of how Watts strangled his wife, Shanann, and their daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, before crudely disposing of them at a secluded site where he worked.
    "The man seated to my right smothered his daughters," Rourke said. "Imagine the horror in Bella's mind as her father snuffed out her life. ... She fought back for her life as her father smothered her."
    I'm not parent and maybe if I was I would understand but how could you say "I still love you" to someone who did such a thing?

    ^ when you give what, 18? 20? years of your life to someone. Its just way, way beyond any relationship you have not being a parent. Algerbra to addition. This is the best analogy I can give. Think about being 16 yrs old, and maybe you've been drunk once or twice. How do you explain your now view of the world to an 11 year old who never has and never will?

    Tip my hat to her. As a father I don't know if I could.

    Officers investigate video of coyote beaten to death in northern Alberta

    GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. — Mounties and wildlife officials in northern Alberta are investigating a video that apparently shows a coyote being beaten and killed by snowmobilers.

    RCMP in Grande Prairie say they received a complaint about the video that was posted on social media.
    Cpl. Maria Ogden says the video depicts an inhumane death of a wild animal, but she could not offer more details.
    CBC News reports that the video shows someone swinging a coyote by its hind legs, bashing it’s head against a snowmobile and stuffing it’s bloody body into a rack on the back of the machine.
    Alberta Fish and Wildlife officers are helping with the investigation.

    Alberta government spokesman Jason van Rassel says individuals in the video have been identified but it’s too early to speculate on possible charges.

    on the news last night they kept playing the video of his oldest daughter singing "My daddy is a hero." I think it would be appropriate for the prison to play that video on a continuous loop in his cell.
