Sarcoptic Mange is caused by the parasite Sacroptes Scabiei. While it can infect and grow in humans too- it prefers to grow in dogs.
The kind of preferential treatment they can absolutely do without.
Because we can help ourselves. They can’t.
We have sprays. They have neglect.
We have money they are destitute.
We control out destiny. They have been robbed of their destiny because we domesticate and breed them.
And this is what it does to a ‘once vibrant’ Great Dane. His legs are swollen to three times the normal size. His walk is so painful that he shuffles inch by inch. Standing up is so excruciating for him that he eats lying down.
In a world where shelters are overcrowded and animals get put down for perceived aggression or a minor kennel cough, what chance does this poor neglected boy have?
Who was the human that let the neglect go this far. At what point do you stop and say- I think my dog needs help.
So what did this human do??
He abandoned this dog on the street in almost 100 degree blistering hot Texas sun. A skin so sensitive it cannot endure human touch was found lying on a burning hot pavement.
Now that is preferential cruelty.
