Is not this type of dog commonly referred to as a Wiener-dog?
I think this important...
Josey Wales... nice
You're half stepping.
If all that took place Okie, that would be an award winning taxidermy mount!
Alot of us agree with you, but this is GT and the standards are a bit lower here than real life.
Yeah tell us more about how the mt lion was there first and all the other hippie babble.
I fail to see any controversy in the loss. Sad the Mt Lion was put down though.
And additionally... with all the negative stuff floating around with the AWB pending, current administration, etc... sometimes we just need a laugh.
Sad about the pup, but things happen. He's in doggy heaven.. cats probably in hell.
Not that the mountain lion did anything wrong... cats are just evil/plotting to kill me.
Quit crying like it was your dog. The mountain lion was doing what a mountain lion does. Kill small animals.
The fact that you think talking about a mountain lion doing mountain lion ****, in the mountains, is somehow "hippie babble", shows how far off your liberal-O-meter is.
Acknowledging that people are encoraching on the territory of mountain lions, and creating the encounters, is a typically conservative attitude. IE conservationism.
But keep throwing out the "hippie" card, you might get it right one day. You sound like a typical city-dweller, absolutely certain that how you define conservatism is correct.
Sucks someone lost their pet but IMO it also sucks that the mountain lion had to be put down. However if it was my dog and I saw the attack in progress I would've dispatched the mountain lion myself. Contradictory...?
Hmmm, I didn't know mountain lions would eat raw hot dogs...
I think any dog owner that sees their dog being attacked is gonna freak out.....and shoot, if they can.
Being a lap dog in snagglepuss' territory carries an occupational hazard of being eaten. That said, eating my dog carries an occupational hazard of becoming a rug.
This may be related to the duality of man, I guess.
Understandable, but a citizen would likely be cited for shooting the lion to protect property (the pet), whereas the wildlife officer can do so in his discretion and under the law.
I figure that if a mountain lion is close enough for me to shoot with a handgun, it's justifiable self defense. What's the 21' rule for a lion?
That is a great story of a heroic dog. He did his job of protecting his owner. If the owner had been walking without his dog, he might have been the one dragged into the brush.
I say good doggy. Shed a tear for the owner's loss of a pet and the dog for protecting his owner. The owner should get another dog if he is going to continue walking in mountain lion country.
I am sure the dog and owner would rather the dog protected his owner by scaring the lion off with barking. Unfortunately the dog was not a big enough caliber for the job.
Then again, I wonder if things would have been different had the doggy been carrying his Beretta Jetfire...
