I recently received an email from a colleague telling me about this blog: http://justicefordunkin.blogspot.com/. The blog focuses on the plight of a woman whose dog was killed by the police during a traffic stop. I know nothing about this case or the people involved but the woman’s horror and grief at the loss of her companion speak for themselves. This is animal law on a deeply personal level. Sometimes, amid all the global and national horrors, we forget that a lot of animal law is about individual animals and people who suffer egregious wrongs at the hands of an indifferent society. It would behoove us to try to remember always that this is so.
