Larry Sanders is not having the best week ever. He already had to have surgery on a torn thumb ligament after busting heads with a bottle in a club fight and now we have learned that he was cited back in January for cruelty to animals. What was the offense? He left his dogs out in the cold:

Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders, who was involved in an altercation at a Milwaukee nightclub on Nov. 3, was cited twice last January for cruelty to animals, according to Municipal Court records.

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 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 Dr., and saw the two puppies in the backyard with no shelter, food or water.

The officer noted that the temperature outside was 17 degrees.

Sanders has to know better than that. You shouldn’t be leaving any dog outside in 17 degree weather much less two puppies. I am surprised that he didn’t get more than a $330 fine though.

If Mike Vick has taught us anything, it’s that people care deeply about dogs.

    You got that right! Atheletes can get away with mistreating their wives/girlfriends, but not a dog! Just ask former Philly pitcher Brett Myers’ wife.
