The mayor of Helena, Ark., released 10 dogs into a national forest because there wasn’t room at the pound.
I’m a native of Arkansas, and every time there’s an embarrassing story like this, I’m always frustrated. Arkansas is a beautiful place, and the people there are wonderful. There are already enough jokes about how backwoods my home state is; why do we have to make it worse?
Hopefully these dogs will survive. Hopefully this mayor’s political career won’t.
