Ellen Degeneres tells viewers that the situation has gotten out of hand

Ellen Degeneres told viewers today that things have gotten out of hand, "Let me just say this, it's gotten out of hand. I want nothing, nothing more than that dog returned to that family. But you don't resort to violence. So anybody out there, please stop that. Please don't threaten or do whatever."

Iggy has been placed with another family. Many other organizations have called Ellen and said they would give Ruby, the hairdressers daughter, their dog.
"Ruby, the little girl, doesn't want another dog, she wants Iggy," DeGeneres says on her Thursday program. "It's not a toy that's broken that you can replace. It's a dog."
So for now, Ellen Degeneres says she'll stay quiet. But I think this fight is long from over.

Here is footage from the show and Ellen Degeneres explaining it.
