AMARILLO, TX (CBSDFW.COM/CBS LOCAL) — A pregnant pit bull – described as aggressive by her owners – was euthanized last month while giving birth. Now a Facebook Post last week describing the incident is sparking a debate online.
In the social media post that has been shared and commented on thousands of times, Dacia Anderson, an Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare (AAMW) volunteer described what she called “completely appalling and unacceptable.”
“I have held on to this post, hoping that I would not have to share, but I cannot seem to get anywhere. Today, I am coming to the public for support,” Anderson continued.
Richard Havens, Director of AAMW told the press they made an “unfortunate but necessary decision.” That according to KAMR / KCIT TV.
As a volunteer, Anderson said she interacted with the pit bull. “I went into her kennel to take a picture for the [Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society] Facebook “In the Facility” album. She was friendly, but scared, and jumped up on me for comfort. I looked at her band and noted she had been an owner surrender the previous day,” Anderson said in her post.
Later, after noticing the pit bull had begun delivering her pups, Anderson said she met resistance from officials after trying to get the dog some help. ” Unfortunately (and to my surprise), I was met with resistance from an [AAMW] employee when I attempted to enter G building a bit later while looking for a new volunteer,” said Anderson.
Director Havens said the dog was reported aggressive when surrendered by the owners according to the television station.
“The owner of the dog in question contacted 911 to state they had a vicious animal that was theirs. We responded after hours we took the animal into custody and then the following morning we ended up euthanizing it due to the nature of the call and the behaviors the animal exhibited,” Havens told the station.
“I am aware that euthanasia is a reality at the shelter. I am well aware of the overpopulation problems. I am also well aware that [AAMW] has to make hard decisions,” Anderson said online. “However, I feel that this action is the exact opposite of a what “the most humane community in the Panhandle of Texas” would do,” Anderson continued.
“Her last moments, while she lay dying, were spent still trying to clean her newly birthed puppies. Their words, not mine,” said Anderson.
“It’s unfortunate this had to happen, but it was the right call,” Havens told KAMR/KCIT TV. Havens said the dog would not have been a candidate for adoption or foster care according to the station. He said that it was a matter of public safety.
He also said that part of being a responsible pet owner is making sure your animals are spayed or neutered and that they are socialized well. He said that if this dog’s owner had followed these recommendations, this incident would not have occurred.
“She was not euthanized before she went into labor, she was not euthanized after, she was euthanized as she was delivering puppies,” Anderson told the station. “So aggressive or not, I don’t know where you can excuse this or say this is why we did it,” she continued.
Anderson said she will no longer volunteer at AAMW. Follow Us

Ellen Adarna failed to show up Monday at the first hearing for a child abuse and cybercrime complaint filed against her, in connection with a “paparazzi” incident in May where she publicly accused a minor, on social media, of taking photos of her at a restaurant without her permission.
The case was filed by Myra Abo Santos, the mother of the 17-year-old girl whose photo was uploaded by Adarna in her Instagram Stories, after the actress did not respond to the family’s request for a public apology over the accusation.

On Monday, the preliminary investigation into the case was held at the Pasig City Prosecutor’s Office. The Santos family, accompanied by their legal counsel, were seen at the venue. Adarna, however, failed to attend the hearing.
In a statement to ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe, Santos family lawyer Atty. Arnold Labay said the hearing was reset to June 11 due to Adarna’s absence.

“Santos family would just wait for the child abuse and cybercrime cases to take [their] due course,” the statement added.
The hearing on Monday came four days after Adarna’s father, hotelier Alan Adarna, passed away due to cardiac arrest. The interment of Mr. Adarna is set on June 8 in Cebu City. Ellen Adarna’s father passes away

Wanna One’s Yoon Ji Sung Explains Group’s Agency Switch And Denies Contract Extension Rumors | Soompi
Shares 3K Display.Sharethrough.Soompi.1×1
On June 3, Wanna One held a press conference for their world tour “ONE: THE WORLD” and their upcoming album “1÷χ=1(UNDIVIDED).”
During the event, the group was asked about their recent move to Swing Entertainment from YMC Entertainment. Soompi.Display.News.English.300×250.BTF Soompi.Mobile.English.300×250.ATF
In response, the leader Yoon Ji Sung commented, “The reason that our agency switched is because a company was established to fully and actively support Wanna One ahead of our world tour and remaining albums. YMC is also still helping out.”
As many brought up contract extension rumors following the establishment of Swing Entertainment, Yoon Ji Sung clarified, “We have never talked about a contract extension. We are just focusing on our upcoming world tour.”
The Seoul stop of Wanna One’s world tour will conclude on June 3 at Gocheok Sky Dome. After short promotions for the group’s album release on June 4, they will embark on the rest of their world tour starting in late June.
Robert Kennedy: What if US presidential hopeful had not been killed? – BBC News
A new Kennedy in the spotlight
Carter and Clinton were Democrats who moved away from traditional LBJ-style government programmes, he says. And they wanted to show that they were making government smaller, not bigger. This meant they were less interventionist in personal choices about issues like gun ownership and local control of schools.
“Historical conjecture is a tricky business full of uncertainty, but history is ultimately about causality – and we value historical causes differently because of the ‘what-ifs’ involved,” says Ben Wright at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History that houses Ronald Bennett’s photographic archive.
“Events like the assassination of Dr King and Senator Kennedy matter precisely because we intuit so many significant possibilities for the trajectory of American history had things turned out differently.” Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Family gather at Robert Kennedy’s grave, 11 years later
Whether Robert Kennedy could have kept the Democratic Party together, let alone secured its nomination in 1968, will always remain debatable – but some who were there with Kennedy when he was shot remain convinced his unique political talents could have taken him to the presidency.
“His personality and appearance generated an inspiring figure to people and an almost desperate desire to restore things that were taken away from the country with the death of his brother and the Vietnam War,” says Jules Witcover, a journalist covering Kennedy’s campaign.

Others, however, note the significant political and societal odds that were stacked against Kennedy.
“By the end of the 1960s, the forces that were swelling up against the Great Society, which was an extension of the New Deal of the 1930s, were going to defeat whoever the Democrats put up,” says HW Brands, historian and author.
“Americans were disillusioned and angered by the violence of the 1960s, and by the failure of the Democratic governments of John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson to take Vietnam to a successful conclusion.”
Brands notes how also the Civil Rights movement had largely achieved its legislative aims, and so if either Martin Luther King Jr or Robert Kennedy had lived they would have had to battle the great American conundrum of economic inequality and poverty that has thwarted all others.

“That’s a much tougher nut to deal with going off the last 50 years of American politics,” Mr Brands says.
“You can repeal laws against blacks, but can you mandate economic equality? Nobody’s figured out how to do it… for a society that is organised economically along capitalist lines.”
The whole experience of his campaign and what he stood for remains a milestone for the Democratic party, says Witcover, who went on to write 1968: The Year the Dream Died and a book about Kennedy’s campaign.
The Democratic National Convention that followed Kennedy’s death in August descended into violence and farce, delivering a blow the Democrats have been reeling from ever since.

“The modern comparison with 1968 is 2016,” Mr Wright says. “In many ways 2016 doesn’t hold a candle to 1968, but both were characterised by political upheaval, social divisions, racial issues and a general perception of decline.”
Both Bennet and Witcover remember Kennedy warmly as a politician who had a Midas touch with people from all walks of life.
“He was the last politician who came from a background of Franklin Roosevelt-influenced social welfare policies who could connect with rural voters,” Mr Suri says.
“What ended in the late 1960s and early 1970s was a set of policies of expanding rights, expanding government services and assistance for those in need, and the backlash against that was facilitated by the absence of effective figures like Robert Kennedy.” Related Topics
