Do we care more about dogs than we care about our senior citizens?

A man has been charged with causing suffering to a Metropolitan Police dog after a door was slammed on its head.

The short story is here for all to read.

Apparently, Lukasz Sklepkowski, 28, of no fixed address, has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering under the Animal Welfare Act.

You know what’s coming next …

We’ve had a week of CQC reports on hospital neglect of our mature citizens, followed hotly by another CQC report on the starvation of same mature citizens in our so-called care homes.

Can someone explain to me why one dog should be more precious than thousands of vulnerable people in need of care?

At least the dog had several police officers to protect it during its activities.

There is allegedly the Animal Welfare Act.

Where is the Human Welfare Act?  I’ve searched but haven’t found it so far.
