Abox: Yeah I don't get this guy. If someone told me the cat I lost five years ago was spotted in the Andes I'd be on the next plane.


The cat you lost five years ago was spotted in the Andes.

"The part of the story I don't like is that the little boy gave up looking for Happy after an hour. He didn't put posters up or anything, he just sat on the porch like a goon and waited. That little boy's gotta think 'You got a pet. You got a responsibility.' If your dog gets lost you don't look for an hour then call it quits. You get your ass out there and you find that farking dog".

consider this: KrispyKritter: i pity you and your priorities. You're right: Pets are not people. Pets are so much better.

You're an idiot if you truly feel that way. I would kill every dog and cat on the planet to save one child.


Plot twist - the child you saved was baby Adolf.

Since when did a dogs life become more valued than a humans life?

The charges are BS. Pets are not people.

AssAsInAssassin: How can we be sure the dog is alive? Dogs wag their tails for hours after they're dead.


Longer than that.

relcec: family life


Dogs ARE family. It's as simple as that.

If you can take your kid up the mountain, you can get your kid down.

If you can take your dog up the mountain, you can get your dog down.

If you can't rescue your own family, you aren't worthy of having said family and you should face charges for placing them in danger.

If he had gone straight to facebook or the local news with "Help, my dog's stuck on a mountain." This would be the story of one man's heroic effort to save his beloved pet. As it is, it's the story of a jackass who thinks living creatures are somehow mobile property. It's only a small step mental to transfer that kind of sick emotional lack to humans. The dude SHOULD face charges at the VERY least.

If only he had just strapped him to the roof and driven back home.

UncleStumpy: I love animals, but I can't see myself risking my life for my pet.


Then you don't love animals. Obviously.

When Missy was eventually located, she had been on the mountain for eight days without food or water.




Should tie his ass to a tree on the same mountain for the same length of time. That's justice.

relcec: people who take dogs on mountain hikes should be charged with animal endangerment?


It's the difference between letting your kid ride a bike and letting your kid ride a bike without a helmet.

People who take dogs up mountains shouldn't be charged. People who LEAVE dogs on mountains should be keel hauled.... in a dry dock.
