[COMPLAIN] ANIMAL LOVER EXTREMISTS – IS ACRES ONE OF THEM?

After I read yesterday's news that ACRES had set up ACIU to conduct undercover operations, I suddenly remembered this incident which was related to me.

His wound was left open for five days. They did the bare minimum that even I, without medical training, could do. They sanitised the wound. They fed him (albeit not what he usually likes to eat). That was it.

They also snapped pictures and posed with Ms Fruno.
