Subject: [guardiandogrescue] Pyrs in TN, Urgent!!

From: pyrangel@webtv.net (Joan Fremo)

<<ATTN!  The previous post concerning the TN rescue is inacurate, and 
I am
afraid it will do more damage to an already volitile situation.  
ever you have seen the post , please, PLEASE, forward this message.

I have been trying to arrange rescue of Mom and four pups dumped near
Lancaster.  After several unsuccessful attempts were made at capture, 
Florida gentleman volunteered to drive the nine hours to make rescue
attempt.  He was well outfitted, and prepared, had proper meds, and
permission to be where he was.

We did not know that two of the animals had already been caught until
after he had left FL. The person who captured these pups figured that 
must be valuable, or why the fuss to capture.He apparently does not
understand the humanitarian motives behind rescue.

In the morning, My FL representative was informed the Rescue lady 
have them for $150, we were also informed that this person would get 
all, and would shot them.

In the afternoon, Mom dog was under sedation, but not yet down.  She 
keeping company with my rep, who was quietly sitting nearby her, 
for her to either go to sleep or come to him.  A hunter type, bearing
shotgun, startled Mom who ran away.  This person informed my friend 
the dogs would end up shot unless rescue paid, and he would be shot 
if he

Threats were also made to the original finder of the dogs.  The 
could not respond to my call as no one had made a complaint.(I am,
afterall, calling from FL)  He asked that I have the parties involved 
in touch with him.  Neither my rep, or the woman feeding these dogs 
a report with the Sheriff office. Though it is an ugly situation, 
felt the need for law enforcement.  The Sheriff DID NOT ignore my 
but was unable to proceed without a complaintant.  I fully understand

The situation is already bizarre, inflaming it will not solve 
anything. I
will not send anyone after these animals again, and I strongly 
suggest ALL
contact be ONLY those directly involved.  It is bad enough some fool
thinks he can make a buck off these unfortunate animals, but how 
would it be to risk injury. Cooler heads will prevail!

This IS being handled, and no further assistance is needed. Thank you 
your time, and please cross post to where ever original was seen.
