This begs the question: What sort of brainless morons leave their pets chained or locked, and unable to fend for themselves during a hurricane, for which there was ample warning?
Answer: The meanest sort of human scum, utterly worthless and cruel.
Would it not make sense for those who live in hurricane and tornado country to implant chips in their domestic animals' necks? This would allow them some way of finding their pets if they get separated during a storm. Enough about the pets, what about the selfishness of humans who put rescuers and relief workers at risk with their stubborn insistence on staying put? The article continues:
Hackberry resident Darren East, his shirt soaked, came in on a rescue boat as a pale sun sank across the flooded prairie. "We sat around watching TV and listening to the news, and then we saw the water getting higher and higher," he said. "It was a little hectic."
Seventy-five people remained in Hackberry overnight, joining thousands of others determined to ride out the floods that clung to the Texas-Louisiana border. Attempts to get them out resumed Sunday morning, as rescuers across the region went back to work. The relief effort could last two weeks, said Legle.In light of what happened in New Orleans three years ago, and to Galveston nearly a century ago, one has to wonder about the sanity of the people who opted to stay behind. WTF were they thinking?
BTW, my dog has a chip implanted in him. Does yours?
