Does SF Love Dogs More Than Children?

That was a rhetorical question.  I once wrote about anarchists and their dogs.  The newest chapter in this drama is on at #Occupy SF:

Three pooches residing at the Justin Herman Plaza space have tested positive for the highly contagious and deadly parvovirus, putting all four-legged friends there at risk, according to San Francisco Animal Care and Control.

The San Francisco SPCA and Animal Care and Control visited the camp Monday afternoon to offer free veterinary services to dog owners after the SPCA confirmed an outbreak of parvovirus last week. The station set up for the clinic was visited by dozens of dog owners Monday, according to campers. Two more cases were confirmed Monday.

Protesters had mixed feelings Monday night about the dog illnesses. One camper with a pit bull said she appreciated the SPCA providing services at the camp. Another dog owner, however, accused the SPCA of spreading bad publicity as part of a greater effort to shut down the encampment.

Animals are removed from harmful environment.  What about the children?
