As a group of students screamed in horror and begged him to stop, a police officer in Mesquite, Texas, pepper-sprayed a tiny baby squirrel outside Kimbrough Middle School. The officer claimed to be worried that the squirrel had rabies, but animal control officers who cleaned up the squirrel before her releasing her said it was unlikely she had the disease.
The Mesquite Police Department says it is looking into the incident. Please take a moment to e-mail Derek Rohde, Chief of Police, and ask him to take disciplinary action against the officer whose cruel actions traumatized and set a horrible example for the students.
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
