There is a battle going on, here in Central Florida to prevent a death sentence from being carried out. The one who has been given the death sentence is a one year old Beagle by the name of Rufus.

In a bit of a bureaucratic snafu, Rufus, who is now in the custody of Orange County, Fl. animal control was taken from his owners after he bit their son when he approached Rufus while the beagle was eating his food. This, of course, is not a wise thing to do with any animal that is eating. It is called “food aggression.”

There is now a widespread effort to save Rufus from this untimely fate. Thousands has been raised and a lawyer has managed to get a stay of execution while the matter is resolved.

Here are some links to read about Rufus and to help if you so desire.
