Animal cruelty is an issue that officials have been fighting on a daily basis forever. Some times it can feel like an uphill battle. That’s why when Midland, Texas police received multiple calls, they quickly responded. Several people were reporting a vehicle throwing puppies out the window while driving down the highway.
However, none of the puppies were severely harmed and all were taken to the animal shelter to be adopted. All but one that is. According to official Ray Lane at the police department, Lt. Brian Rackow was one of the first officers to respond. His heart was broken when he seen all these poor puppies bouncing off the windshields of passing cars. He wanted to be able to give one of them the life they deserve. Therefore he adopted a pup and named him Marley. Lt. Rackow says that Marley has his undivided attention and will be unconditionally loved.
In the meantime, the driver of the car is being changed for this horrible act and being evaluated for any mental illnesses. We can only hope that more officers like Lt. Rackow are out there to get these people off the streets.
