I agree !!! I hope that she has help with the fees . It's too late to send the Judge a letter now as to our feelings , but if Tammy wins the case , let's congratulate the Judge on her decision .

Sadly, if she is being accused of theft, she is probably going to lose. The court needs to determine whether Tammy broke the current laws regarding the unlawful removal of property. She did.

The circumstances absolutely justify her actions, but that isn't in question. The law may change in the future as a result of Tammy's situation, but it sounds like she is going to pay the price for doing the right thing.

No good deed goes unpunished.

I'll probably get stoned for this, but by this going to trial, if she's found guilty, she becomes a martyr for the anti-tethering movement, and it will simply give steam to those who like to liberate other peoples' dogs. I don't know if the circumstances in this particular case made her actions right or wrong -- I read that he reportedly couldn't stand up for 3 days, but I also am pretty sure that a dog doesn't get that old by being neglected -- but I am concerned about where this is going to lead. I wonder if there will be a push to make dog theft legal if the person doing the stealing thinks the dog is being mistreated.

I understand where you are coming from Baha and its a legitimate concern. I just wanted to say that if a dog is left unable to stand for three days, even if the owners weren't neglecting him in terms of food and water, they had obviously neglected to get the dog much needed medical treatment.

And nobody seems to remember that white shepherd pictured on a chain next to the dog that had been "stolen". If Tammy Grimes just wanted to steal dogs off chains, I would think she would have taken him too...
