Can we have the Daily Fail euthanized?
 
2013-01-31 10:53:35 AM  
When I was a kid, me and some friends saw a raccoon humping another raccoon. We thought it was funny, and then they switched! Minds were blown. To this day, I still assume all raccoons are gay.

Terrydatroll: vicioushobbit: Terrydatroll: ausfahrk: I hope the new owner names him "Bear".

What foolish statement? I merely stated my opinion which reflects the opinion of most non-pitbull fantics. They are a breed that should not exist in a modern society.

Silly troll can't even respond to the right person.  I'm not a pit bull fanatic.  I've merely met several of them.  I've been bitten bloody by more errant chihuahuas than barked at loudly by pitt bulls.  Guess which group of dogs had responsible owners?

I agreel. Little dogs are more vicious and nip and snap. Big dogs are usually calmer but when they do bite it is more damaging. When pitbulls attack it is met by horrible disfigurment and/or death because that is what they were bred for. Rottweilers have taken the top spot in recent years for mangling attacks because of the proliferation of the breed and the asshats who usually own them, but they don't usually turn on their owners and owners family. Pitbulls were bred for one reason and being pets wasn't one of them.


Perhaps they were not bred for pets, but they can be trained to be docile.  Small dogs can cause disfigurement to a child when not well restrained, so saying that one is worthy of euthinasia and another is not is rather illogical, as we have agreed that both are dangerous when not restrained. 

Killing a dog because it is bigger and it MIGHT bite versus letting a smaller dog live because it IS biting but it's bites are tiny (gangrene kills, yo), is kinda jacked.

A guy I know owns a Pug. Many years ago, the Pug lived with a Shih-Tzu. One night, the guy's son was dog sitting. He calls up his dad and says, "I think [Pug's name] is gay." It turns out that the Pug had spent the night licking the Shih-Tzu's genitals...

/that Pug will hump any other dog, male or female (he tried to get on top of a Great Dane once)
//he's fathered 9 puppies, and made his owner some good money in the process

Terrydatroll: Cythraul: Terrydatroll: Putting the dog down because it is gay is the epitome of ignorant. Putting it down because it is a Pit Bull is the smart thing to do. Still, being a Pit Bull being put down for any reason is acceptable.

Well, technically that's not why the animal shelter is putting it down, that's just why the owner gave him up.

I agree 100%. The guy merely abandoned him. The whole "humping another male dog" was probably just an excuse and he was tired of caring for the animal so he took him to the shelter. I would have taken it behind the house and shot it in the  head if it were me, but then I have ballsget off on shooting domestic animals in the head.

What's great is when you have two female dogs, and you yell at one of them for something they did, and the other comes running over and humps the crap out of them for good measure.  You know, just to help, Daddy.

Yup, it's all about the owners.'Pit Bull' is a media name that covers 3 separate, recognized breeds. Spuds MacKenzie is a pit bull, so is 'Spot' from the Target ads. It's similar to the 'scary-looking guns are assault rifles' classification that the media does to over-simplify a story for easier consumption. By comparison, while somewhere between 45-50% of dog bites in the US are from 'Pit Bulls', about 3% of dog bites in Canada were caused by those breeds. The problem isn't the dog or the breed, it's the owners that train the dogs to be attack, guard, or fight. The disproportionate level of aggressiveness in the US cases comes from a disproportionate interest in the breeds from convicts and criminals. I've handled maybe 2 dozen pit bulls in my life, all with responsible owners and I was in more danger of having my face licked off than being bitten.

Yeah, I hate to be all hyperbolic, but anyone who can do this to an animal for suspected homosexual activity makes me wonder about their attitude towards human homosexuals.


Hmm.  I don't wonder at all.  I'm pretty damn sure of the dude's attitude.

I remember several years back that Martina Navratilova got all upset about agricultural research.  Really.  There was a project to figure out how to minimize the occurrence of rams mounting other rams instead of sheep, simply for reasons of productivity.  She was all enraged, saying how DARE you even consider such heresy.  They were all like, we're studying SHEEP.  Get a grip.

When we moved here to Ohio, our new insurance company wouldn't ensure our dog if he had even a hint of Chow, and a couple of others we looked into didn't want to insure a home with a German Shepherd. He's mostly German Shepherd with a bit of Yellow Lab, and yet is totally a bottom. He'll bark at strangers and then spread for them. But in this state, it's considered a dangerous breed because most bites come from them.

I've heard that it's a poor data conclusion as it is simply one of the most common breeds and they went by numbers rather than percentages, and apparently, Ohio has people actively fighting against breed discrimination because of issues like this.

No, they're not. Those are bull terriers, which are not considered pit bulls. The three breeds are American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, all of which have that blunt-muzzled bulldog/boxer look in the face, not the aardvark snoot of a bull terrier.

It's important to get these things out of the way.  It's like going into a Chicago pizza thread and explaining that putting sauce on a loaf of bread doesn't make it pizza, or that burnt meat smothered with tomatoes that they think is barbeque in Kansas City.  It's important to know your target audience, with trolling.
