No, I am not doing a homage to my fellow cat skinning peers at Ocad. I pretty much work and go to school everyday and I walk to the subway down Albion Street. A couple of houses from the station, there's this ratty ol' house with a family living in it and I've noticed for the last couple of years that the dog (a Siberian husky type) is ALWAYS tied to the fence even in freezing, snowy weather. It never barks, it doesn't snarl and it genuinely looks healthy and friendly. My question is how far can owners go with treating animals like they're animals? I really want this dog to be loved and to have the freedom to walk without being tied to a chain. I don't know anyone who does this to their pets. Some points about the dog: - the chain is about 10 feet or so - the dog's coat looks great so I'm assuming it's being fed well - periodically, it's not outside - it walks in circles and NEVER barks at anyone walking by - I've personally witness it numerous times lying in the snow in 20 below weather I totally disagree with tying a dog to a fence day and night. Sometimes I'll go to school in the morning and see it. And then come home from work at night after school and it's still there. That's about a 10 hour span. I haven't surveyed it enough to actually know if they take it in during the day or take it for walks but I'm guessing they don't. Even in the hot summer, the dog is tied and the kids tease it with it still on the chain. Every time it runs, he stretches the chain and gets jerked back. How do I report this? Do I ever bother? Am I overreacting? Help.
