  1. why isn’t the the shelter closed down,

    The person running it is putting animals in a dangerous situation

  2. It is an animal rescue called Saving All our Angels.

    Crystal lake allowes them to have this even though it is against ordinace to have it in city limits.

    I blame the city for allowing it.

  3. According to the Chicagoist, Axel Salemi of Crystal Lake, IL is Currently in the McHenry County Correctional Facility for allegedly killing a kitten with his bare hands.

    What they don’t mention however is that Axel is a proud neo-nazi.

    His Facebook profile features confederate flags, deaths head skulls, and is where you can find him saying racist quotes such as;
    “we fly the swastika!
    we fly it strong and true!
    we ain’t never gonna take it down for the communist or jews!”.

    At the time of his arrest (last Friday) he was a server at a Buffalo Wild Wings.

    He appears to still be employed at the McHenry location (3343 Shoppers Dr.

    The Shops at Fox River McHenry, IL 60051-5405).

  4. I agree with Jim on…the city is responsible.

    Animal control and the city are responsible for their inaction.

    Checked out this kids Facebook…it’s been taken down.
