I live in France, and on Friday 5 September saw CSI:NY Season 1 episode 12/23 "Recycling". It was very late, but I saw that it involved animals and as I'm an animal-lover and concerned about animal welfare I stayed up to watch it. I was very disappointed. Although I'm sure it was a caricature, the dog-showers were portrayed as eccentric and old-fashioned, a dog looked like it was being incorrectly lifted onto a stage - by its neck and tail? - and there was no follow-up to a dog that was tranquilised and sent to Animal Control because it was trying to protect its recently murdered owner, and when the perpetrator was found and arrested she was incredulous but apparently unworried about what was going to happen to her dog while she was in jail. I would like to see more sensitive treatment of animals in this series that so many people watch. Subjects that could be used include animal trafficking, animal cruelty, irresponsible owners and police reaction to found animals. I hope I am putting this comment in the right place and would like to be contacted by the writers of the series with their reactions. I write myself, but have never written a film script!
