This is a story of violence to an animal and a threat to a woman.
We have readers who are familiar with these issues and may be able to help walk someone through staying safe while also helping a little dog.
As regular visitors to Readlarrypowell.com know, we’ve been reporting on the challenges facing the Burns Flat, Okla., rescuer Terry Lynn Fisher. Ripped tendons and broken ankle and off work (no pay!) for “the next 2 to 3 months,” she says.
So, on this Saturday morning, she’s turning to anyone who’ll respond for help with this little dog. Warning: You’re going to be disgusted by the circumstances surrounding this puppy.
Here’s the story from Terry Lynn: “He is about 13 weeks old. Someone hit him on the head. Yes. On purpose. They wanted to injure this innocent little baby.
“The lady that was a relative to the horrible man took him but is afraid to call the police due to fear of retaliation. She reached out to me to see if anyone can help. She said he walks and eats, but his little head has a dent in it and he cries out a lot and gets disoriented. He needs to see a vet ASAP but with all I have there right now and my personal issues, I can't do it without a commitment to help him. If anyone can, please let me know. This is killing me. Thank you for caring.”

[LARRY ASIDE: We’re not sure what the animal cruelty laws are in Oklahoma, but we do know there are laws against domestic violence. Of course, many men pay no attention to laws. So, we can understand the timid approach to doing something that might save someone else down the road as the jerk’s violent personality becomes more active. Stop the guy now and maybe you won’t have to go visit him on death row after he takes a whack at a child and his defense is “I didn’t know my own strength.” He knows. Stop the violence. Stop the harm. Stop the sadness. In The Real Yellow Pages online, this is the information regarding help in the case of domestic violence in the Burns Flat area.
There may be better ways to get help immediately. Getting in touch with law enforcement is probably a great way. But, for now, that's the information we've found. If anyone has any suggestions, let us know.]
