Re "Jury convicts dog owner on animal cruelty charge" (Our Region, March 29): Deepest gratitude to Hilary Bagley-Franzoia for securing felony animal cruelty charges for Bubba.
Robert Lee Brian is a menace not only to animals but to society in general. At least 20 years ago, law enforcement/humane officers recognized that cruelty in any form was a precursor to sadistic behaviors; thus began cross-reporting to target potential abuses to animals ,children and especially women.
We owe much to Ms. Bagley-Franzoia for going the extra mile.
