Weren’t they the ‘water protectors’? Weren’t they fighting for the environment? Well, they didn’t do too good of a job. Not to mention just leaving their pets there! This is the North Dakota winter, people! It might have been warm these last few weeks (and by warm, we mean 30-40 degrees) but it can change on a dime and those puppies can freeze to death! Are these people morons?

It was incredibly nasty when protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline trashed the environment by leaving their tons of garbage strewn so widely thousands of trucks will be needed to haul it away before it pollutes the area’s water supply. Gov. Doug Burgum (R) told KFGO, “This is probably the biggest ecological mess on the entire Missouri River system from top to bottom in this country.”
But the protesters went beyond nasty; they were also heartless, leaving behind puppies to fend for themselves in the cold.
As The Washington Free Beacon reports, Furry Friends Rockin Rescue, a local animal rescue in Bismarck, North Dakota, found and rescued two abandoned dogs and six puppies that were left behind.
Tiffany Hardy, a Furry Friends volunteer, told KFYR:
We have a couple cases of mange, we might have had some, I know we’ve had some problems with claws that haven’t been clipped before . . . Extremely sad being these guys were left behind. But we offer, Furry Friends offers hope. I mean there’s so much hope within Furry Friends as far as these puppies finding homes. If we can offer them luck and offer them a home, we’re going to try and find that for them.
