Every dog has his day

quote:
PENSACOLA, Fla. - A man who tried to shoot seven puppies was shot himself when one of the dogs put its paw on the revolver's trigger. Bradford said he decided to shoot the 3-month-old shepherd-mix dogs in the head because he couldn't find them a home, according to the sheriff's office.

On Monday, Bradford was holding two puppies — one in his arms and another in his left hand — when the dog in his hand wiggled and put its paw on the trigger of the .38-caliber revolver. The gun then discharged, the sheriff's report said.

I think I better start treating my own dog with a little more respect! [Eek!]

They're going to die anyway. Is it less horrible because you don't see it? However, this guy is definitely a Darwin Award contender.

Why is he sick OPL? Euthanizing unwanted animals is SOP in this country and a bullet to the head is an accepted practice in agriculture. I've seen steel helmets that are placed on the heads of sheep or cattle, a cartridge inserted and detonated. The animal dies fairly quickly. Granted the fellow should have had his dog fixed to begin with, but (at least where I live) it costs a bit of money to have animals euthanized at a shelter. And while the death is a bit more cosmetic at a shelter, it is if anything more traumatizing to the animal that must be uprooted from it's home and taken to a strange place to be killed.

That is a good point. It IS SOP for us to deal with unwanted animals this way. If it is inherently wrong (even fellonius) for us to end an animals life for being unwanted, then Vets shouldn't be allowed to do it, should they? The question about wrong-doing should be about if it was your pet or someone elses, what your intentions were (e.g, were you trying to intimidate an observer), and if the method was humane or not.

Maybe he should just be charged for practicing as a Vet without a license. [Smile] Or he could just argue that he was practicing a belated partial-birth abortion for a dog, and therefore he is well within his rights.

I have also had to take care of an overlarge population of critters(farm cats). From personal experiance, the weapon should be of small caliber(.22), and preferably in rifle or carbine form. Why one would hold the animal that one is trying to humanely euthanize, is a little beyond me but I see no wrongdoing in the general idea.

Having moved to the South in the last couple years I have to say this story made me think of a phrase I've heard quite a few times since I got here.

That dog will hunt!

When I spent soem time in New Zealand we used to joke about how if the sheep, which have about a 50 to 1 ratio with humans there, ever decided to rise up we'd be massively outnumbered, but their lack of opposable thumbs would give us the advantage. After all, we could use guns, knives, and stuff and they couldn't. Now I'm not so sure. [Big Grin]

Animal cruelty , nonsense. Puppies are just property. He owns them. If he took them to the pound, the pound would just kill them for him. Gassing isnt any more "humane" then shooting. Maybe next time he will just put them in a gunny sack and throw them into the river.
( ouch, I feel the animal lovers whacking me with their nerf bats ) I just took 3 kittens down to the "heavens gate" foundation where they find people who are addicted to animals...and they take them into their homes and feed them until homes are found.

Are you killing them to eat them? Is it serving a purpose other than "I can't find a home for these animals"?

I personally don't eat meat or chicken, so...

In Little Saigon there is no such thing as an unwanted animal. [Big Grin]


Actually one of my favorite mexican restaurants in Bakersfield is next door to a veterinary clinic. My daughter and I like to eat and play "guess what's in the chile verde".
