Ron Artest of Sacramento Kings Faces Animal Cruelty Charges: Starves Great Dane

I always wonder why these rich babies are usually so cruel. I guess being rich beyond all isn’t enough. Let’s hope he gets a conviction.


Officers take away Artest's Great Dane

Neighbors accuse Kings star of underfeeding dog at his mansion

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Animal services officers seized a Great Dane from the mansion of Sacramento Kings star Ron Artest, saying the dog was underfed.

Neighbors complained for weeks that the dog — named Socks — appeared to be starving inside a gated area on Artest’s $1.85 million estate in rural Loomis, according to a county report.

On Jan. 30, animal services officers visited Artest’s home and issued a “pre-seizure” notice, warning him that the female Great Dane would be taken into custody if the animal care didn’t improve.

Placer County animal services officers returned to Artest’s home Monday and removed Socks.

Artest has 10 days to request a hearing, county spokeswoman Anita Yoder said.

Artest’s publicist, Heidi Buech, declined to comment when reached by The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Artest signed with the Kings last January for $7.15 million this season and $7.8 million in 2007-08, with an $8.45 million player option for 2008-09.

As far as I know, this is about the fifth time Artest has been in this kind of trouble. He has NO empathy nor a "normal" soul. He's a piece of caa-caa!!! (IF I could cuss here, I'd have more descriptive, meaningful words to use.) He should be prohibited for life from having ANY living souls around him; he "hasn't a clue!"
