Who Doesn't Love Dogs?
Chicago's Animal Care and Control Department should not be demonized because four dogs were wrongly put to death at the city pound four years ago, Mayor Richard Daley said Friday.
The West Side compound handles huge numbers of dogs, the mayor said. He called on the media not to overreact to the cases of mistaken euthanasia between February and July 2006.
"Mistakenly? Four. Four," said Daley, who leaned into the microphone when asked about the issue. "Look, mistaken, it's an accident, so they corrected it."
Is this the opening salvo in an effort to demonize Daley as an animal hater? Or is it just a slow news Saturday?
