Samurai Pet Rescue

Here's a Catch 22 for ya...
YORK, ENGLAND-May 27, 2004 A British man who broke into an animal shelter armed with a samurai sword and an air rifle to retrieve his dog has been sentenced to a little over a year in jail.

Prosecutors say shelter officials had seized the Jack Russell terrier after overhearing the owner say he was going to kill the dog with a pickax.

The man's lawyer says her client was devastated after vets told him his dog was ill and needed to be put to death, and he could not afford the bill.

When the man broke into the shelter in York, England, in March he also had lighter fluid and a hammer. He surrendered to police after a 90-minute standoff.

The dog has since died.

How sad!!!!

Eli, the article never said what the dog died of, other than, that he was sick and the shelter was going to put him down That's why the owner stormed the shelter, because he didn't want his dog put down He received a year in jail
This is where I got the article. It was posted on our local news website, but written by Associated Press.
