DMX Arrested For Animal Cruelty
The long time MC faces opposition from PETA...
DMX, the New York rapper, has been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty and felony drug possession.
Although the rapper has voiced love for his pets (Boomer) in his music it seems that he may have been mistreating his current Dogs.
The Rapper, real name Earl Simmons, had his property raided in August 2007, which led to the discovery of three dogs buried in his garden and the confiscation of 12 dogs that were described as malnourished.
Following the recent arrest, the organisation, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have sent a letter to Attorney Andrew P. Thomas to urge him to imprison Mr. Simmons.
In support of their argument PETA give reference to DMXs probation period in 2002 after he pleaded guilty to 13 cases of animal abuse, the PETA caseworker has requested that he is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
