In an instance of poetic justice, a man attempting to shoot seven puppies was shot when one of them pulled the trigger on the gun (local6.com)

    Originally posted by Associated Press
    Bradford said he decided to shoot the 3-month-old puppies in the head because he couldn't find another home for the shepherd-mix dogs, according to the sheriff's office.

    On Monday, he 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, making the gun discharge, the sheriff's report said.


This would have made a much more interesting ending to Old Yeller.

Shit like this really pisses me off. Assholes like this guy think they're fucking breaders, and when they can't sell the puppies they'd rather kill them than give them to the pound. I'm glad the dog shot him, too, because Florida has extremely lax animal cruelty laws. If they'd just found out about this after the fact, he would have hardly been punished for it at all.

My wife and I are animal rescue volunteers, at any given time we have between 2 to 4 extra dogs in the house (in addition to our 3). We keep these dogs until they can find their "forever homes". We get quite attached to them and spend a decent bit of money and a large amount of time helping animals in need. With that said, I absolutely loved this article. I couldn't agree more with Tenken, as far as I'm concerned the idiot got what he deserved. I'm not sure that this guy thought he was a breeder (though I agree that backyard breeders are a menace), he was probably just too lazy or too cheap to have his dog spayed. At least they charged him with a felony. I'd love to be on his jury.

As someone who also has worked in animal shelters I am glad to see someone who does this sort of thing being dealt with, but am I the only one who sees what this could lead to? The animals are starting to rise up! Just wait until deer hunting season when the deer start shooting back! Go feed your cat extra Fancy Feast ASAP, because the shit is about to hit the fan!

This story balances somewhat out the Weekly Animal Crulety Quotient. Here in Denver, charges are pending for some a-hole who shot a dog in the head, 12 times with a BB-gun. The dog survived, but is blind as a result of the incident.

I agree, the man was an idiot. He should have drowned the things, seeing as bullets cost money and water abounds. Furthermore, if he were drowning them, and it all backfired like it did, the story of a bunch of puppies drowning a guy is a hell of a lot cooler than a story of a puppy shooting a guy.

As a animal enthusiast, I am devoutly against the cruel treatment of animals. A man who hits his dog does so because he's frustrated and is scared to hit a man; a coward. He could have put the animals up for adoption so that they may have found homes, but they were his animals. This man was putting bullets in the brain, which is quick and painless, as opposed to releasing them as strays or many other far more torturous forms of death. If they were taken to the pound, there's a chance they'd have been put to sleep, which would have the same end result. I'm not saying his actions were appropriate, however, I fail to see the difference between killing a puppy and killing a chicken. Technically, couldn't these exact same charges be placed on any farmer that ever raised hens? You could state that the use of chickens as food would account for their slaughter, but wouldn't that make it all the more barbaric? When I go, I'd rather be buried than eaten and shat.

In summation, fine the man for his multiple stupidities, explain to him why he was stupid, and that's it.

Hmm, just goes to show you that while an animal theoretically has equal rights as any other animal, certain animals are less "equal" than others.

On the other hand, there are plenty of organizations to which he could've given the puppies where they would not have been put to sleep under any circumstances. The Humane Society and PETA (as much as I hate lumping those two organizations together) aren't the only animal organizations in existence.

Over the years, our family has acquired two cats from the Humane Society, Thomas ("Tommy") and Hailey. Both of them were likely to have been put to sleep if not taken-- as a matter of fact, Tommy's euthanasia had actually been scheduled. We took him home, though, and he lived a happy 13 years before passing away shortly before Christmas in '02.

Tommy was allegedly sent there because he didn't get along well with other cats and with small children, which is a debatable point. The small children probably poked Tommy with a stick, so of course he's gonna stay away from 'em. But I found him to be extremely loving and affectionate.

Hailey, on the other hand, if I recall correctly was sent to the Humane Society because she didn't match the furniture, and don't get me started on what the hell kind of asshole would come up with that as an excuse for gettin' rid of my sweetcakes. On the other hand, I'm glad he did.

You would be amazed at how common a reason that is for giving a pet away. It's probably for the best that those people give the animal up.

I agree, though with a different slant. His lack of judgment largely resides in the fact that he picked up TWO wiggling puppies while holding a cocked and loaded revolver. Some people just shouldn't handle firearms.

To my mind, you have just as much right to kill and eat a puppy as you have to kill and eat a chicken. The various US jurisdictions that have outlawed raising dogs to eat are violating the rights of people who like dog stew, IMO. Where in the Constitution does it say you can pass laws to keep some species from being eaten by other people if it personally grosses you out? Where does it stop?

No, I am not a dog person, but if you want to humanely kill and eat kittens, hamsters and parakeets, I am not going to stop you. Can anyone explain the degree of emotion that so many Americans seem to invest in the cause of non-ingestion of "pet" animals?

Vegetarians and Vegans vote. Some people pander to those votes. Those groups would rather have all meat outlawed, but they take what they can get incrementally.

This reminds me of California's Proposition 6 (savethehorses.com) which had the memorable opposition note in the voter's guide from the default Libertarian assigned:

IF HORSEMEAT IS OUTLAWED, ONLY OUTLAWS WILL EAT HORSEMEAT!

OK, maybe that was a bit harsh. I am completely ignorant of the health issues involved, but I do recall that civet (cats, kind of) were linked to SARS, so there may be other reasons than my questionable animosity towards vegetarians.

I think any animosity towards vegetarians is pretty much justified.

That's goofy. That's like saying that anyone who doesn't own a gun wants guns outlawed, anyone who doesn't smoke wants smoking outlawed, and anyone who doesn't listen to Switchfoot must want them outlawed, too.

Out of curiosity: Do you hate *everyone* who doesn't eat meat, or only those who do it for moral reasons, or only those who try and convert you?

What if it's for religious reasons?

What if they eat fish? Does that make you dislike them less?

Yes, I definitely had that one in mind. Come on, people! That proposition was the one that tipped me over to the side of severely restricting or even abolishing the California ballot initiative procedure.

And of course our ever-efficient Assembly has just passed a ban on the production of foie gras, though it doesn't take effect for quite a while. OK, sure, I LOVE foie gras, but this is the sort of busybody nanny state nonsense that makes me order exotic animal delicacies every chance I get no matter how expensive they are.

My take on it? NO ONE has the right to tell you that your ordinary, traditional foodstuffs are somehow immoral or evil and put their prejudices into law. Personal squicks play no part in preserving public order and human rights--yes, HUMAN. There is definitely a slippery slope there, and I'm sure California will lead the tumble to the bottom.

I simply do not care what you choose to produce or eat as long as you are not breaking ordinary statutes: you can't torture your food to death or steal it from your neighbor's yard or sell contaminated or mislabeled meat. If you decide to refrain from eating something, that's fine with me too as long as you are not starving your children of necessary nutrients. But if you want a second invitation to my house, don't lecture me on that or any other subject.

Ok, so after further reflection, it is probably due to:

1) Health reasons
2) Religious reasons
3) Animal lovers
4) Vegetarians / Vegans (often #3)
5) "Tradition" (often #2)
6) "Cultural" (often #2 diguised as #5)

I don't hate vegetarians. They mildly annoy me.

I like Bacon, and at least two different world religions would deny me bacon if they could. Because of that, I don't really buy denying an animal as meat based off of tradition, culture, or religion.

I am 100% behind banning it due to scientific reasons, however. If the public health is impacted by something, it is OK to tell people they can't do that. This is the same reasoning I use to justify banning smoking in restaurants, so I'm not too picky on the science behind something

I should probably just keep my mouth shut since I don't know the real reasons. A lesson for all, I guess.

You just reminded me of a story on the news some 6-7 years ago. A man was in a car accident. His car went off the side of the road into a ravine. Unable to move very far or call for help due to his condition he was there for a few days before being found. During this time he made himself a sling and picked off some squirrels for breakfast. Once found and treated he was promptly hit with a cruelty to animals charge.

EDIT: I went on google to see if i could find a link to verify this. Unfortunatly i couldn't. However this should be wierd enough to entertain y'all for a bit:
