There are some who call me... Andrew.
I mostly post shit here that I stole from everyone else, but that seems to be what Tumblr is mostly used for. Occasionally I'll post something original, and on very few occasions I may have something meaningful to say, but it's mostly just crap I find amusing.
I play tenor, alto, and sometimes soprano sax rather well, penny whistle averagely, and guitar and piano/keyboard terribly, though I know the theory behind playing them. I'll play tenor sax in the FAU Marching Band, possibly crying on the inside because I can't go anywhere higher than that because I play a woodwind, though I recently resolved that I will somehow learn baritone and hopefully march in a corps.
Currently I am a Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering major at FAU. I'm also a chaser and keeper on the fantastic FAU Owls Quidditch team. It's kind of awesome having such an appropriate mascot for our university as the owl.
if you couldn't already tell, I'm a Panthers fan. I also love the New Jersey Devils because I love watching them, especially Marty, and the Vancouver Canucks, because that's pretty much like watching the Panthers as far as players go.
The police just came to my door and gave me the worst news of my life. My baby was euthanized today. They told me they had no information on the person who was “bitten”. All they acted on was a picture sent to them. My baby is gone because someone didn’t like us having him. We won’t be on tumblr, possibly ever again.
This is heartbreaking and I encourage Vader’s owners to seek legal action when they are ready.
I normally don’t post about stuff like this in tumblr but this is a true injustice, not to mention incredibly illegal.
It’s after hours for this particular state’s animal and health department, but I encourage all of you to take a moment and call these numbers and express how wrong this is.
Please be polite; the person on the other end of the line, odds are, is not the one who made the decision. They are representatives and they should be regarded with respect.
//Signal boosting. I feel so horrible for Vader’s owners. I agree with Autobot-lolo, be polite. Don’t scream and curse and be belligerent. Be firm, polite, and insistent, and ask for facts and citations (was there a police report? Can a copy be purchased?).
Don’t allow this go to unremarked. This could be anyone’s pet, be it a fox, a German Shepherd, Doberman, or Pit Bull, or even a housecat or horse. The police took Vader on the 20th, and he was euthanized on the 21st. That’s very, very quick turnaround time, especially for a government agency. I find it very worrisome, and that it sets a dangerous precedence. Contacting the agencies will not bring Vader back, of course, but if all of us here on Tumblr can keep it from happening to someone else, I think that’s worthwhile.
This is so wrong. I am so sorry Tara I can’t even imagine the pain and grief you are going through. This just makes me feel so numb. This poor baby was ripped from his home and unfairly given a death sentence before he even has a chance to be defended. I hope legal action is taken
Please, please, please signal boost this as much as you can. Call, email, write, whatever — just try to get some justice for Vader and his family. Unfortunately, it won’t reunite them but hopefully can prevent this from happening again.
FUCKING SIGNAL BOOST THIS.
You should all report this to news channels as well, I have already contacted CNN, who are VERY good about animal articles being on the front page.
