Schwarzenegger May Be Barking Up Wrong Tree

In an effort to save his constituents money, Governor Schwarzenegger is proposing to repeal a state law that requires animal shelters to hold stray dogs and cats for up to six days before killing them according to this article at SeattlePI.com. He suggests animals should be euthenized after three days of capitvity.

Governor Schwarzenegger says that this measure would help to save local governments operating animal shelters up to $14 million.

I think this is a great idea but I have a feelign that his constituents, in spite of all of California's financial problems, will not stand behind the Governor on this decision.
