When a dog keeps the neighborhood up all night, what is the big deal? You sleepless folks now have all that extra awake time to pursue useful activities... spending 7 hours a day in bed is just plain wasteful, right?
Same goes for dogs that kill... hey, the life Fido took wasn't all THAT valuable, right? So, who cares?
Pursuant to that, a classic case of the "who cares" came to my attention. Check out Dogsbite Decatur Alabama for details.
Here are the juicy details:
- Dog named "Bowser" bites the nose off a 3 year old boy last June. The victim will face many reconstructive surgeries to repair his face.
- Of course, the above is A-OK, according to Bowser's owner: "“Oh, he’s all right” and “It’s just the tip of his nose, that’s it.” YEP... THATS ALL, FOLKS!
- Of course, true to form NOTHING is done about Bowser or his owner. Nope... Bowser is set free to maul again!
- Then, the Merkelbachs [the boy's parents] found out about the Schilskeys, whose dog Sarge
was allegedly attacked and killed by Bowser in Lake Arrowhead in late
April. “Sarge went over on his back with his paws up (and) the dog
immediately chomped down on his chest and started to shake him,” Lynn
So, the timeline appears to be that the dog was killed in April and nothing was done about it (of course), and then Bowser went on to maul the kid a couple of months later. In any case, BOWSER AND HIS OWNER ARE TWO TIME LOSERS!
The result of all this carnage? Bowser’s owners were cited, [Thank Dog for THAT] according to San Bernardino Animal Control
officials, and the dog may be [!!] put down if deemed vicious at a public
hearing scheduled in the coming weeks.
Yeah, a dog kills another dog and then moves on to rip the face off a kid, so YES there is a SLIGHT chance it is vicious! Not a big one, mind you, but its within the limit of possibility. Kind of like time travel. Or me being the first man on Mars.
Getting back to the original point - In the Dogocracy, any destructive act committed by dogs and their owners are simply of no consequence. The lives they ruin don't matter. In this case, Bowser got what HE wanted in both cases, so it is all good.
These people have no concept of the Golden Rule, Karma, or "what goes around, comes around". To them, it is THEY that get to be the final judge of every outcome. If you would be better off without a dog, or a nose on your face, they are firm in the belief that is THEIR decision to make.
Of course, a sane society would have KILLED Bowser and jailed the owner for a year, and removed all pet privileges IMMEDIATELY AFTER the first dog was killed. THIS would have prevented the subsequent mauling. HEY DOG FOAMERS - Maybe YOU don't think the people you hurt are of any consequence but WE DO.
ENOUGH. DOWN WITH THE DOGOCRACY.
