Man tattoos pit bull on the dog's belly. The North Carolina man received a firestorm of criticism from those who consider tattoos on a pit bull, or any other dog, cruelty.
Ernesto Rodriguez put a tattoo on his pit bull. Few people ever saw the inked crest since it was on the dog's belly. But when he posted it on his Facebook page, Mr. Rodriguez ignited a firestorm of criticism.
“You are an absolutely disgusting human being for claiming that you ‘love’ your dog and think that it’s ok to tattoo him. Did he give you informed consent? No. He’s a dog. You have no empathy for animals and should not be allowed to care for any and you should not be allowed to be a tattoo artist because you have poor ethics," wrote Stephanie Bay, according to the Guardian Express.
A military veteran and owner of a couple of pit bulls,Rodriguez told WXII12-TV in Winston-Salem, N.C., that the dog Duchess was asleep - sedated - and had a local anesthetic to boot.
