  2. Spotted this in a relative's local paper:

    http://www.shropshirestar.com/news/crime/2016/12/16/shropshire-dog-trainer-faces-sheep-attack-case/

    A so called "animal behaviourist specialising in training undisciplined and aggressive dogs" charged with allowing his dogs to be out of control.

    An old article with more background:

  3. All God's creatures have their place- next to potatoes and gravy. That said;

    So when a dog is barking its fool head off neither the police nor animal control can or will do anything, but if a moron lets their dog run loose suddenly the police are dog catchers? What gives? http://www.wkbw.com/news/woman-says-buffalo-police-took-car-to-find-lost-dog

    1. That is part of the double standard where, there are no resources to CONTROL the dog, but there are unlimited resources to HELP the dog!

      I wrote a while back about this insane hypocrisy: Going after individual dogs and their moaner... I mean owners.... is totally uneconomic... it makes no economic sense at all! Besides, the enforcement state is completely bankrupt and has no money, personnel, time or any other resources to go after the dog bully that is terrorizing the neighborhood. However, if someone were to say, shoot that dog, ALL OF A SUDDEN the enforcement state has more cash than Bill Gates after a winning streak in Vegas! NOW they have the entire state police and national guard on call! Spare NO EXPENSE finding that horrible miscreant who abused poor Fido!

    2. IF animal control got off their ass and acted like meter maids, patrolling the city and writing tickets for EVERY offense, barking, not leashed, not licensed, not vaccinated, not picking up, etc, they'd have money coming out of their ass. So why don't they? It is that they don't want to deal with belligerent asshole dog owners? Or they just prefer to spend their time being doggie social workers?

    3. I recall I got a parking ticket for letting the parking meter run over 7 minutes. SEVEN MINUTES!

      Actually, is was probably less than that as when I returned to my vehicle, the cop had already filled out the ticket and left.
