Ernest Dempsey — The good news about the death row dog Prada has reached many readers. Those who haven’t got it yet can cheer up at the temporary hold on Prada’s execution. By legal intervention through an appeal to reconsider her euthanasia orders by the court, Parda’s execution has been rendered pending in appeal.
Prada’s story got good attention and scores of people spoke up in favor of her support. The video evidence of incompetence and abuse at the animal control facility where she still remains caged threw in a new turn in her story of victimization by the authorities. The facility’s management appeared to have misinformed the public and the court about the reason they put down two dogs allegedly bitten by Prada. Her attorney and her supporters have both raised the crucial question how Prada could get loose and bite two dogs while in their custody.
The video also shows the claims of the facility’s management that Prada was probably suffering from an infection and therefore the dog she bit had to be put down. This raised the question of how could an infection, which is rare and only air-borne, have spread via bite and why the dog was not tested for the infection before putting it to sleep. In addition, if Prada had an infection why she had not been tested and/or put down. The animal control seems to be unable to answer these questions convincingly while the suspicion grows heavier about their failure to manage the facility and making Prada a scapegoat to hide it.
With over 8000 supporters signing the petition to save her from euthanasia and urging on the mayor of Nashville as well as the Governor of Tennessee to release her, Prada waits for her fate inside the Metro Animal Control in Nashville. She spent the Valentine’s Day inside the cage while those convinced she is a loving and normal dog, and a victim of cruelty and abuse, keep fighting the legal battle for her life.
The petition urging on the Governor of Tennessee Bill Haslam is still receiving signatures and invites all caring people to speak up for Prada. It is close to its goal of reaching 10000 signatures. Readers may sign the petition online to help save Prada, before it’s too late.
