Animal rescue finds dogs left behind amid tons of trash at Dakota Access protest camp

Along with tons of garbage left behind at the Dakota Access protest camp, at least eight dogs have been discovered since protesters departed last week under a federal evacuation order.

The canines — two adults and six puppies — were picked up by volunteers with Furry Friends Rockin’ Rescue after the last of the protesters exited the Oceti Sakowin camp, allowing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to join the massive cleanup effort.

“Yesterday a group of volunteers headed down to the DAPL campsite and surrounding area and brought back some of the animals,” said the Bismarck rescue Saturday on its Facebook page. “They received immediate vet care, were given a bath and love, and will now remain in quarantine until we know they are healthy enough to be with other animals.”

Julie Schirado of Furry Friends said the rescue effort has been made more difficult by conditions at the muddy, debris-strewn camp.

A Florida-based sanitation company, hired by the corps on a $1 million contract, has moved in with dump trucks, loaders and other equipment to clear the encampment located on a federal floodplain before the snowmelt washes the trash into the Cannonball River.

    These Progressives and hired protesters have no respect for the environment or anything else. The entire goal of this hold up of the last 5% of this pipeline was strictly to cost the owners of the pipeline more money in the attempt to have money diverted to solar and wind energy projects. This was straight up corporate obstructionism pretending to be environmentally motivated. The fact is that pipelines have the least negative impact on the environment than any other means of transporting fossil fuels. Those sponsoring these activists wanted to prevent oil production and promote their own interests, which would be very costly to the energy using consumer.

    Lived on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington State.
    Every year the greeny’s would come by the thousands to celebrate earth day.
    It would take us locals a week to clean up their mess.
    Environmentalists: Baloney!

    Once again we see the basic hypocrisy of many in the environmental movement. They demand that others be held to a standard that they are unwilling to follow themselves.

    The protestors were concerned with how the pipeline would affect the environment. I can appreciate that. But, it looks like the protestors did more to harm the environment than the pipeline will.
