(CBS) — Protesters targeted Chicago’s Animal Care and Control facility Saturday following the city’s release of a video, forced by a judge, showing workers in the facility mishandling a dog that the Better Government Association says was choked to death.
WBBM’s Mike Krauser reports they held signs reading “Doge lives matter” and “Animals lives matter.” Activist Terry Gidwitz says the need to do a better job training employees, killing fewer animals and treating them humanely.
“This is the canine version of what we’ve been seeing with the police department with Laquan McDonald,” Gidwitz said. “Much smaller scale of course. It’s reminiscent of the same thought process, ‘we’ll just hide this. Nobody will know.’”
