Vick Critic's Dog Dies After 4 Hours In Car

Posted: 11:38 am EDT August 27, 2009Updated: 11:55 am EDT August 27, 2009

RICHMOND, Va. -- A prosecutor said no charges are planned against an executive for an anti-animal cruelty group whose 16-year-old blind and deaf dog died after accidentally being left in a hot car for four hours.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Tracy Thorne-Begland said Wednesday charges are not planned against Robin Starr, CEO of the Richmond Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Starr says she didn't realize "Louie" was in the car until noon. Starr's husband, Ed, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch he put the dog in her car's cargo area as she got ready for work Aug. 19 but forgot to tell her.

She often took the dog to work with her. Robin Starr took the dog to two clinics, but he died of kidney failure.

The National Weather Service says the temperature had reached 91 degrees by noon that day.

Starr has been a vocal critic of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick who was released from federal custody July 20 after serving 18 months of a 23-month sentence for his role in running a dogfighting ring.

When Vick was reinstated to the NFL Starr said "The action of the NFL commissioner to reinstate Michael Vick is both premature and unwise. Vick has not yet demonstrated that his remorse is sincere or that his irresponsible, cruel and criminal behaviors are likely to change. The NFL and its leadership apparently lack the integrity to require civilized behavior from their players. This would reflect poorly on any team that adds Vick to its roster."

There's a night and day difference, which is not a metaphor for the likelihood that harloo, et al wouldn't give a flying fuck about this if Vick wasn't black. :spit: This woman (unless lying, though given the dog's age and infirmities she could have had it euthanized without any hassles) apparently didn't know her husband had put it in the car. Thats a failure to communicate, not a sadistic killing.

"Poor Michael", the Devil made him use methods to get dogs to try and kill eachother for the sake of killing and then to savagely execute those that were unable or unwillingly to become star four legged barbarians. This is "obviously" :rolleyes: the fault of a white racist power structure, though the Falcons had given him a 10 year, $130 million contract extension not too long B4 this was exposed.

For the sake of this dog, let's hope that all dogs go to heaven because likely it died in a man-made version of hell.

How can you not notice having a dog in the car with you ?

Sad story though, not a pleasant way to die.

:haha::haha:J.R. do you ever get tired of playing the race card? I mean the fact that you advocate for Appalachian whites is obvious but I have no idea what you're going on about. White racist power structure? Have you been watching Limbaugh and Beck again?:tape:

I just find it ironic that one of Vick's most vocal critics made an error in judgment that resulted in the death of her blind/deaf dog. Some people are suggesting that Starr be charged and forced to step down from her position for negligence but in my opinion that's harsh. Everybody deserves a second chance after making a mistake or poor decision. Wouldn't you agree?:confused::lol:

If someone else put the dog in the car, and the dog liked to curl up in the footwells like my little guy? Not as hard as you'd think.

harloo, there's a differance between monumental stupidity and wanton, repeated acts of cruelty for the sake of profit. I don't think it takes a Rhodes Scholar to understand the difference.

Word.

There's a reason why you're one of the most respected posters on this board. Nice to have you back, griff. :)

I adore animals, but suing someone over this is insane.

No. You're an idiot.

"What's the big deal?" when an innocent animal dies at the expense of human neglegance.

I'd like for someone to say "What's the big deal?" if you suffer a similar fate :rolleyes:

Hi griffin!! :wavey:

Nowhere in my post did I state both incidents were comparable. I said it was ironic that Starr(one of Vick's vocal critics) mistakenly left her dog in the car resulting in a death. One would assume that people could engage in a conversation about this without jumping to conclusions and making assumptions but I forgot this was WTAworld.:)

Let me tell you drake: Once I saw this story on the news site I visit everyday I knew it would vindicate Michael Vick of all his past transgressions. As I proceeded to do a 2-second copy and paste my heart was pounding, lips quivering, and hands were shaking. Yes, I finally had my chance to take down whitey.

Why would it be ironic if those incidents aren't comparable? Yes, animal rights activists have animals, and stuff happens. This isn't even about negligence. Just miscommunication. Saying it's ironic implies that the two are comparable, hence why people were "jumping to assumptions."

Maybe the ironic part is the obsessive nut jobs that went on and on and on about Vick now have a new person to vent their nuttiness... Maybe the ironic part is that it shows some of the people are so out there that they are now acting like this person who they were just holding hands with should now lose her job and have criminal charges thrown against her for a terrible mistake to a pet she clearly loved. Maybe the ironic part is that it shows that some of those vocal critics are actually crazy? :cuckoo:

but that's just my take on the Irony. :shrug:

exactly!!! that being said though, people in glass houses should not do too much stone throwing.

after my recent attempt to adopt a dog from a number of breed rescue groups i do think that none to fee of these so called "animal rights" people are little more than self indulgent, arrogant know it alls who care more about their own egos than about the health and safety of animals. but that is not to say that all these people are as bad as that, many if not most are good people. Liz, who helped us with both the cats we adopted is nothing short of a saint.

sorry rant over...

harloo - I didn't jump to anything, I read your thread title and the content you attached to it.

And yes Wiggs, I've met "dog people" who are crazy and/or more focused on their own egos than the animals. I've met "tennis people" who are crazy and/or more focused on their own egos and issues than the game or the players they are allegedly fans of. Next you gonna tell us that water is wet? :lol:
