In a not-so-shocking development, "Padi" the ear-eater has struck again!
Here is Dogsbite Decatur AL's article on the issue.
Here is my backstory on PADI.
A Manatee County dog that was given a second chance after biting a child is under investigation again.
Deputies say the dog named Padi is now accused of biting a 4-month-old
puppy on the nose at his owner's veterinary clinic. The sheriff's office
says Dr. Garenberg could face criminal charges.
Now, if they had taken MY advice and killed the damn thing after the last attack, this would not have happened!
Why was Padi not only spared, but left to CONTINUE to run loose in Gartenburg's office? ...Soon a Free Padi Facebook page racked up
more than 27,000 like and hundreds of supporters turned out at county
commission meetings and at the hearing in November. Yep, the dog-worshiping crusade was out in full force!
His owner asked a judge to spare the dog's life; the judge ruled that
the dog wasn't dangerous. Sarasota Judge Andrew Owens ruled Florida's
25-year-old dog bite law unconstitutional calling it "arbitrary and
unduly oppresssive." That move released Padi.
These folks need to learn the basic definitions of words. There was nothing "Arbitrary" about the original decision to destroy Padi... the dog attacked a 4 year old! If that is not a good reason to put down a dog, then what is?
Pursuant to that, there is also nothing "Oppressive" about killing a dog that attacks children. You want to know what is REALLY oppressive? This "anarcho-tyrannical" regime that dictates that dog owners get to attack us any place, any time and for any or no reason and there is NOTHING we can do about it! That regime, my friends, is VERY OPPRESSIVE.
I might have been overwhelmed by the rank foolishness of Gartenburg and Padi's rank-and-file fans, but for the fact that these people are by definition totally delusional. In their world, dogs and dog owners can do no wrong. The victim was blamed for the last "encounter" so they figured that there was no need to contain PADI.
I truly hope PADI gets his long overdue dirt-nap, and does not move on to permanently maim someone as Gus did.
