Today is another segment of our Dog News Friday. I only have two news to share and it's all related to dog poisoning. Let me just warn you that one is really really bad and the other is dog gone good.
1. Massive Dog Poisoning in Moscow, Russia. This news was posted last September 21, 2012. So I'm a little late in informing you guys. According to the news, 40 to 70 cases of dog poisoning has been noted by the police that same week. The Russian police opened a criminal investigation because of it. But it wouldn't be a surprise if nobody got convicted. Out of the 9 cases in 2011 (yes, ONLY 9), only one got a convicted.
What makes this news more alarming are this so called dog killers who actually have dog hunting forums. (YES, DOG HUNTING FORUMS!). In these forums, they post pictures of their dog kills, how they kill the dogs, what they use to kill them and where to buy the stuff they use to kill the dogs. A well-known dog hunting forum's owner reasons out that they are simply a "keeper of peace".

2. Ethan the Jack Russel Terrier Found Poisoned and Buried Survives. Some dogs are just born lucky. Take Ethan, for instance. He was buried after being poisoned. This lucky dog was dug out by a man who saw the ground "wiggle" because he was seizing (one of the poison's effect). He was near lifeless when the man dug him out. Firefighters came to his rescue and brought him to the veterinarian who nursed him back to life.

That's all for now. Thank you for dropping by today. Have a happy Friday.
