Woman Will Eat Dog Food on YouTube Every Day Until Animal Rights Law Passes

As a Miami Beach resident Nikki Moustaki has an almost endless array of great dining right outside her doorstep, and yet everyday she eats dog food and uploads the dining experience to YouTube. The host of a pet related show on The Beach Channel plans to eat dog food at least once a day every day until an Ohio animal cruelty law known as Nitro's Law is passed. I don't think we've ever heard of something quite so heart warming while at the same time utterly disgusting.

Moustaki splits her time between her native Miami and New York, and yet the law she's championing is in Ohio. The law was spurred after 12 starving and 7 dead dogs were discovered in High Caliber K-9, a boarding kennel in Youngstown, OH. The law is named after Nitro, a pet Rottwieler who died at the facility while his family had to attend to a sick relative out of state, and would increase animal cruelty to a fifth degree felony in Ohio punishable by up to a year in jail. Ohio is only one of nine states that doesn't count the first count of animal cruelty as a felony. The law was passed in the state's House of Representatives, but died in the Senate. Moustaki won't stop until it's law.

"This isn't just a local issue, it's a national issue," Moustaki said in a release. "This didn't happen in my home state, but as someone who speaks up for animals, I consider them all in my backyard. Animals don't vote, but their owners do. If this can happen in Ohio, it can happen anywhere, and it's important for people to be aware of the laws in their state."

On the first day of her campaign Moustaki ate dog food straight up out of the container: 
Though, she's since started included dog food in other recipes like "Malemute Mac and Cheeze," and "Bocker's Bruchetta." We should note though that she is eating a gourmet brand of dog food, and not that cheap stuff you buy at the grocery store.

Eating dog food may improve smelling sense if nothing else and may help her in choosing nice smelling recipes for herself.

There are numerous examples of people getting a light punishment after doing terrible things to animals in Ohio.

That's a great way to bring awareness to the issue but I'm not eating dog food with her. That's just not my thing... I think it would be more endearing to me if she was munching on Kibbles and Bits not some gourmet brand. I'm just sayin'...

You people (using the term loosely) are missing the point here - this is to raise awareness of animal abuse - not to get attention. These animals starved to death while their owners paid a high-end boarding facility to care for their pets. Ms. Moustaki is doing to this to get the attention of law makers in Ohio to get this bill reintroduced. Animals need protection because they do not have right. What are YOU doing that will make a positive difference in the world?

Dogs cannot have "rights". Is Rover going to sue in court? Duh

On a lighter side, where is the video of her licking and scratching herself?

I agree that animals need protection. There are a lot of bad people out there. Increasing the punishment to a fifth degree felony isn't going to stop anybody from mistreating animals. Maybe a better solution would be to require a professional license for operating a kennel and passing annual inspections?

The above comments show exactly WHY Ohio does NOT have a felony animal abuse Nitro Law. People would rather laugh about the pain this story caused than think about how to promote healthy change in this state. Shame on you for making light of the suffering caused by that terrible man and his drugs. Where are the people who are outraged that this man's probation is being violated by the fact that he is still owning dogs? He is STILL breaking the law/violating probation and where are the police in Youngstown who saw firsthand the disgusting nightmare scene he left behind when he let those poor animals starve to death? Wake up, people, why is he not back behind bars???!!!! Jesus, what about drug rehab then another trip to jail?

I agree that animals need protection. There are a lot of mean people in the world. Maybe a more comprehensive law covering all animals and all states/territories is needed. It's strange to me that animal cruelty is a felony in Ohio, yet the sport of cockfighting remains legal in Puerto Rico, New Mexico, and Louisianna. read here:http://www.foxnews.com/story/0...

Those provisions are in place, but apparently were not enforced in Youngstown.
