    I suspect there is more to this story. Were these his dogs? Taken from him? No Money to bail them out?

    they were his dogs and the sheriff department is to worthless to go after real criminals…… The pound is mad they wont have the opportunity hold them ransom for some astronomic amount of money that they know they can get because most people will do anything to save their pets from the death row as they (the pound) like to call it.
