Puppies rescued from roof of van speeding on Ohio highway

Recommended Posts

AKRON, Ohio, April 18 (UPI) -- Four puppies in a cage strapped to the roof of a minivan were rescued Friday afternoon after the vehicle was spotted speeding down a major Ohio highway.

Drivers along Interstate 76 frantically called 911 to report the dogs in a cage covered with a blue tarp. The driver of the van, who was not identified, told Akron police he didn't know it was illegal to drive with the dogs in the cage on the roof. The van was traveling about 70 mph before it was pulled over. The puppies, each about three months old, were not injured.

"He was completely astounded by the attention," Akron police Sgt. Kris Beitzel told Cleveland.com. "We had four or five cruisers there, and he couldn't imagine why."

The driver told police they were about one hour into their 300-mile trip from Ohio to Pennsylvania.
Police said the family is Mennonite, playing a factor in the decision to transport the dogs on the roof.

The Amish and Mennonite are always doing stuff like this. In Pennsylvania, they run the biggest puppy mills in the area. Not too long ago, one of them went up in flames and many dogs died. There were no fire suppression systems in place, that would have cost money and ate into the "simple, humble, god-fearing" folk's bottom line and they are not particularly concerned with the health and well being of the dogs, as we see again in this latest article.
