"Although the Humane Society of the United States reported 2,500 animal rescues as of Friday, time is clearly running out, said Wayne Pacelle, the society's president.The Dallas Morning News ran this video and has it on their web site. Warning - this video is upsetting to watch, although it does not show animals being harmed, Mike Minton does admit to shooting dogs.
"There is quite a drama unfolding," Pacelle said Friday. He had heard of animals being shot and said that while there is an order in St. Bernard Parish to kill any dog maiming or defacing a human corpse, he has heard of local authorities shooting when that is not the case.
"We have room for the dogs. There is no need for it," Pacelle said. "They are scared. They are hungry. But they are alive."
But that will not be the case in a few more days, he said.
Pacelle said it is imperative that all government responders--the Navy, Army, Coast Guard, police, firefighters and and others--assist in capturing the animals and bringing them to a shelter."
