When Is A Varmint Just A Varmint?

On our way home tonight, we saw that Farmer H had let his goats out. Including Nellie. Which sets the stage for another worry: what if the neighbors see her and accuse Farmer H of animal cruelty? Stranger things have happened.

Take the case of Seth Foster, of Spring Arbor, Michigan. He sent his dog into the family garage to catch whatever creature was tearing it up. The dog came out of the garage with a raccoon, and proceeded to kill it. Two teenage neighbors recorded the murder on their cell phones. Now Seth Foster is facing charges of animal cruelty. Give me a freakin' break! He's taking the rap for a dog. It's not like Seth set out on safari to bag a tail for his cap, or offered the Battle Royale on pay-per-view.
