Dog News Friday: Dog Poisoning

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".

To read more about this particular post, drop by the Huffington Post.

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.

Details of this post can be found here.

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

  3. ohhhh that's just EVIL. Who would be so heartless....

  4. My God, there are some sick crazy bast*rds in this world!
    Perhaps there should be people hunting them, they need to be eliminated.
    I'm very glad Ethan was okay.

  5. That makes us feel sick! Harming animals is the first step of serial killers, in addition to just being sick.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  9. Right now in my community people are duct taping cats paws. Also, people have been freezing cats in blocks of ice. Sad. And scary.

  10. That is just awful, Ethan is one lucky little chap. what is it with Humans??? God I hate some of them! xx00xx

  11. That is just horrible! There are some really bad people in the world. I was so glad to read about Ethan! :)

  12. This is horrible!!! There are so many wicked people in the world. But it is a good job there are some good guys!! xx

  13. I've lost faith in the human race, It's a sick world we live in.


  14. GRRRR. Humans sure do make us mad sometimes. That's just terrible! We are glad, however, for Ethan.

    We are safe from the Hurricane so far. We're hunkered down at home with Sammy and Moosey. VERY windy outside. I was at PAWS yesterday, and all of the cats and dogs are safe in non-window rooms until the strn is over.


  15. What is with people? Has the world gone mad? Momma shakes her head at these stories and holds us close saying that sometimes she is ashamed to call herself a human being.

  16. Its me tweedles and I am making a quick stop to say I love you.

  17. There are some cruel people in this world...hopefully there are enough good people to cancel out the bad!


  18. I really don't understand how some people think…..

    So happy the second story had a happy ending and that brave Dog managed to survive thanks to some loving people :)

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
