Larry Sanders Was Cited for Animal Cruelty

You might think that Larry Sanders’ year couldn’t possibly get any worse. You would be wrong. The embattled Milwaukee Bucks center was cited twice for leaving his dogs out in the cold back in January. Per the Journal Sentinel: “Sanders paid a total of $330 for the two municipal citations. According to court records, a neighbor called police to say Sanders kept his two German shepherd puppies outside in the cold for hours without proper shelter, food and water. The person said she tried to speak with Sanders about his dogs but felt intimidated and was told by Sanders to leave his property. The neighbor said Sanders told her that he was going to call the police if she returned, court records say. On Jan. 3, police attempted to contact Sanders but were unsuccessful. An officer went to Sanders’ home in the 3200 block of N. Lake Drive, and saw the two puppies in the backyard with no shelter, food or water. The officer noted that the temperature outside was 17 degrees. Police notified the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission to retrieve the dogs. An employee of the center determined the dogs ‘were in harm and needed to be removed,’ according to the police report. On Jan. 4, police went back to Sanders’ home, met with Sanders and issued the two citations. A Bucks spokesman said the team would have no comment. Michael Hart, who represented Sanders in the nightclub incident, said Sanders was not in town when police were summoned about the dogs. Hart said that when Sanders got back to town and tried to pick up the dogs, he was given the citations.”

    There’s never an excuse for animal cruelty. I’m lost for words. This guy is a loser.

    Obviously, Sanders is a d@mn idiot, but why is this being reported on now if it happened in January? Was there a new development, or are they just piling on Sanders since he’s stinking on and off the court right now?

    piling on. Milwaukee is driving him out of town, which is going to definitely backfire whenever he does find a happy place.

    The law of attraction!

    He’s such a horrible guy, he left his dogs out in the cold…..how dare he…….

  • JibbsIsBallin

    100% pure douche bag move. Seriously man, its helpless animals.

  • AndyK415

    Do you really not think it’s a big deal?

  • jmm

    Uh, yeah, how dare he? They’re domestic animals under his care. Dogs are no longer wild animals with strong instincts to build their own shelter and fend for themselves – I’d like to see even a wolf survive in a suburban backyard devoid of resources. He is indeed a horrible guy.

    The dog thing is fake. He’s actually being cited for murdering the Bucks.
    But on a real note, that’s a pr*ck move.

    what about the chicken and pigs you eat?

    my father used to raise labs for hunting dogs (lighter coat than a shepards), we had 12 of them in a detached Kennel and fed them 1 x a day, food and water. We only brought them into a heated area when the temperature was below 10 F. We took them out and exercized them 2 hours a day. Not 1 of them in the 10 years I helped him, did 1 of them have health issues from the cold. Maybe 30-35 dogs over 10 years, maybe 200 days between 10-33 F.

  • jmm

    You’re telling me they didn’t have access to water? You said they had a detached kennel – that’s at least shelter from the elements. I’m sure your dad as a breeder kept the animals well, it doesn’t sound like Larry the bar fighting idiot basketball player did.

    lol ^

  • pposse

    not condoning animal cruelty in any way but why is this story breaking now on nov. 13? When the issue was on Jan. 4? Talk about piling on, the media be something else jo

  • JibbsIsBallin

    I only eat fish. But I see where you’re going with this.

  • marquis

    Hey people we got the next Michael Vick.

  • melvo

    What’s the point in having dogs if you don’t want them around? They’re amazing company!

  • Genetic Engineering

    The chicken and pigs your referring to wouldn’t exist if we didn’t eat them. Eat some fatty meats maybe your brain will grow.
