Meh - its an animal not a homo sapien. While he certainly appears to be a douchebag, I'm pretty sure dogs still don't have anything in the Bill of Rights...

/ If we punish for this, can we start prosecuting folks who let their gardens die in the summer? I mean plants are living entities too and as an avid gardner I can assure you thousands of plant lives is greater then one dog life.
// Many cultures butcher and eat dogs and cats should we throw them in jail too?

Despite all that, dogs and cats are far more valuable to this planet than 98% of the humans.

Anyone else see the film, "Cold Turkey" from 1971? There's a famous scene in it involving a dog that came to mind, sorta.

Every time a poodle dies, a child is miraculously cured of cancer.

I have never met a poodle that has not deserved to be killed on the spot. This man needs a medal.

I dislike poodles, but I stay away from them because they are bat crazy. Punching one is like waking up a dragon.

I'd like to agree with the majority of posters so far that it was a poodle and in being so, deserved death but I can't. I can find a thousand more reasons to like a poodle (and I dislike the breed) than to defend a human that could so simply kill a creature that much smaller and defenseless. While many seem to see a poodle deserving of death, all I can see is a sociopath who deserves to be culled from the human race.

Calmamity: On the one hand, animal cruelty is horrible. On the other hand; poodle.


I'm against animal cruelty as much as the next person. Maybe more so on certain cases, but then again, there are just some breeds of dogs that make my leg get itchy and goddamn it if I don't have the urge to kick a field goal right then and there.

Poodles, Chihuahua's, just about any breed of toy dog; make me get all "kicky"

Standards (which are the size of a German Shepard) are actually very nice dogs. Quite mellow.

Toys and teacups are little yap miesters.

However, how much of machismo prick do you have to be to take out your frustrations on a five pond animal that is completely at your mercy?

It's just the urge everyone has, sometimes you can't contain it, but it can be frowned upon, kinda like having sex with your 2nd or 3rd cousin, or both at the same time.

What a farking asshole. I work with a lot of poodles (dog grooming shop) and 90% of them are great little dogs. Smart, brave, cooperative and affectionate. I wish I could say that about 90% of our Lhasa or Maltese clients. Perhaps some of you are confusing one of them for a Poodle. Much like reporters think all dogs are Pit bulls.

This writer is a piece of shiat. I think his script writing career is over. Hopefully anyway. The market has spoken.

Look, I'm just saying it can happen, and it may be frowned upon, kinda like crashing a random house party then taking a dump in their dryer.

Regardless of the type of dog, this guy killed a living being. Anger managment issues much? The wife says it is "an unfortunate accident". So he accidently punched the dog so hard it caused a major brain injury leading to it's death? Some "accident".

Along with jail time and a fine, i think this jerk needs some therapy.

You're right, we should just let people do whatever they want to animals because someone in Korea ate a dog and you like plants so much.

Brace yourselves, I can hear the penniless, weary breeders coming along trying to make themselves feel special because they have children they can't bring themselves to admit they resent because they made them fat, bald, impotent and oh so tired.
 
2012-06-18 03:22:13 PM
I've only really met one b*tchy mini poodle in my life. Now Standard Poodles? Those are pretty outstanding dogs across the board. I'm trying to convince Future Mr. Mouse that a Standard deserves a spot in our top 5 of considered breeds to look into adopting together.

It's a freaking dog.....anyone who has ever had a snarky little dog could understand getting angry.....I suspect he lost his temper and hit it too hard.....but the idea of jail time for an accident like this over a dog is crazy. We as a society have lost our collective minds once we started thinking of our pets as humans or as having the same rights as humans. I know it's an unpopular sentiment by many and understand that I won't win over those who feel that way. But it does give you a perspective on how "wimpy" our society has become. And before anyone accuses me of clubbing baby seals, please understand that I don't condone cruelty to animals in any form (physical, negligence, or anything else). Just read the account and you'll see a person who lost their temper, that's it. Plus the fact that the authorities don't have to do a thing to him.....because his wife will make his life a living hell!

Shuttleworth's wife, Isadora Monk Shuttleworth, called it "a horrible accident."

Continuing, she said, "To be fair, it was being a little shiat."

Bizarre definition of the word "accident". Maybe that's what he'll say if he ever punches her in the face for annoying him.

When I'm hung over and the neighbor's little yappers get going I think about how far I could kick the little shiats.

But seriously, who punches little dogs.

Adults are supposed to be able to handle their emotions. If they don't there are consequences. If he had gotten mad and smashed some ones window, there would be repercussions. He got mad and killed an animal, there should be consequences for that (and there is). It doesn't mean animals should have the same rights as people.

She walks into a lot of doors.

Someone who can be that casually violent or can't control their anger and have to physically lash out has probably slapped his wife around before.

And I believe there will be repercussions, but should they really involve legal proceedings? What about the people who have bunnies or chickens? If they kill them and eat them are they being cruel? Now I grant you that dogs are not livestock and the fact is that we have 6 dogs including working Border Collies, and yes an adult should be able to not get angry and lash out.

It's a rare person who can say they've never gotten angry and done something they regret doing.

I guess we'll just agree to disagree in this case.

I'm torn. On the one hand, I don't like poodles very much. On another, I hate writers. And on the third hand, I know if a house were on fire and for some reason the only 2 living beings in there were my cat and a complete stranger and I had to choose between them and save one, I'd choose my cat. And I hate my cat. I think this means the writer guy should die in a fire.
