The practice of shooting unclaimed dogs as a form of euthenasia in the city of Steinbach Manitoba's shelter is sparking outrage by animal rights activists.

The person doing the shooting with his side of the story.

I picked up on this story after the person doing the shooting and some city councillors were on the Charles Adler radio show today . . . . . not particularly defensive in any way. More like, "You stupid city slickers and your pansy pets, treating them like sons and daughters, just don't get it . . . !!!

So, are you a stupid city slicker? Or a sophisticate in the country?

(I bring this up from my perch overlooking the prairie out here southwest of Calgary.)

hmm, at least he's not shooting them down in the streets- that is what happens at a Reserve 30 mins from here- they declare "dog shooting day" and tell community members to keep their dogs inside/ tied up that day- otherwise they will be shot on sight.
In their defense- a young girl I teach was mauled by 2 feral dogs in that community when she was only 4 years old. She now has huge scars all over her body. :sad:
There's no easy solution other than Spay or Neuter your pet and don't let it roam the streets!!!

So sad, a simple surgery to spay/neuter the dogs would eliminate this problem.:sad:

:rip: Dogs, you are no longer suffering. :candle:
