But the Dog Still Died

I wasn't planning on writing a blog entry today until I read this article about the asshole apartment owners in Huntington Beach, California, who evicted a woman because her companion dog weighed more than their new limit for pets. The apartment owners refused to follow the law (companion animals have to be accommodated). They were sued and lost, but the poor dog had to be euthanized because the owner could not find accommodations that allowed her.

How stupid are people? Not only are companion animals necessary to their owners, they are some of the best trained animals around. If I owned an apartment complex I would put wording in the advert encouraging people with companion animals to come live here.

Seriously. $300,000 is not enough. They should have been sued for much more.
