If at first you don't succeed Tyr and Tyr again.
 
2013-03-30 02:42:23 AM  
So... could they reattatch the finger or not?

I suspect not - presumably it'd be all chewed up and half digested.

I wouldn't. Like on all counts.

First off, why's the dog in the cage anyway?
Second, why's the kid unsupervised near the cage?
Third, why kill the dog just for the finger?

Total failure all 'round.

Losing a finger AND seeing your dad kill your dog because of something the dog did to you?

That kid had a bad day.

I really do hate when people keep dogs in cages, though . . . unless this was night-time crate training, which is possible, but the way he so quickly shot the dog and the fact that he had a gun to begin with makes me question whether this was a permanent outdoor cage.

I wonder if he regrets it. I mean, it was more dangerous letting the dog out of the cage to shoot it than not doing so. I don't think you can argue this was anything more than an emotional response, not for safety.

Yup.

One of the few times I watched Maury, some kid whose ear was bitten off by a Dalmatian said a vet got his ear out of the dog's stomach.

Gut the dog.
Retrieve finger.

Hooray for ignorant dooshbags. An animals cage is its safety spot, all its own. And it takes a bit more than just reaching in to make a family pet take off a finger. So the kid taunts the dog to the point of anger, ignores the dogs warnings - and they do give warnings - then dooshbag Dad of dooshbag son completes the asshole cycle. These are people that should not be allowed to have another pet.

dammit i hate people so much.

I helped scavenge through the snow for fingerpieces of a neighbor as a kid, and that was being a good neighbor.  At least a snowblower was the culprit, and not a dog.

At least? If a dog in a cage takes your finger off, YOU are at fault. If you're too young to be at fault, your parents or guardian are to blame. No exceptions.

The dog was very clearly abused in this home and probably violent as a result. Also clear is that the father was very clearly an idiot. This kid will have to be very lucky to grow up without landing in jail or a box under his farked up tutelage.

11 year old should have been smart enough not to reach into a cage with a vicious dog.

Also that's a hell of a bite if it broke the kid's arm in addition to severing the pinky. What was going on here?
 
2013-03-30 03:38:58 AM  
As someone who has lost part of a finger, I can guess that they won't be able to reattach it. If it's a clean cut, they usually can. When it's not so clean, like a dog bite or say, a farking running lawnmower, it's a bit different.

Too bad for the dog, but we're the ones with thumbs. Suck it, biters.

Animal abuse, child neglect, negligent firearms discharge within city limits, noise violations, littering, and felony dumbassery.

well this sounds like an asshole trifecta, and the dog being an asshole is completely on the shoulders of the asshole owner, and the asshole kid who farked with it. Assholes.

Yep yep.

If the dog was so vicious it needed to be caged, then the kid should have been nowhere near it. If the dog was vicious BECAUSE it had been caged, then the kid should have been nowhere near it, plus dad should be charged with cruelty to animals. If the dog was being crate-trained and wasn't meant to be around people (like it's an attack dog or something) then the kid REALLY shouldn't have been around it.

I dunno--Bradenton, a dog being kept in a cage that's so powerful it can break a kid's arm by biting his hand, a dog so vicious that dad has to shoot it "multiple times" to kill it--does this smell like a dog-fighting scenario to anyone else?

Also, you can live without your pinky finger.

This. These people should never be allowed to have any animals ever again. Dumbasses.
I would not be surprised to hear that the poor dog was a fighting dog.

And I could cheerfully throttle people who keep dogs in cages.

Especially considering the speed with which he decided to shoot the dog, as opposed to taking it to the vet or something.

I have a feeling the break came when the kid tried to jerk his arm out of the cage. I still can't really envision the exact manner in which it happened, but surely it's something along those lines.

Why have a dog if you have to keep it locked in a cage???  If your dog is already that viscous either give it to someone who can tame it or put it down.

Uh crate training? I find it useful when living in hurricane zones because the dog isn't shoved into a completely new environment when having to evacuate. If done right a dog will associate his cage with good things/sleep and not as a punishment. Could be the dog had become territorial about his cage.

Wow lots of ire on how to raise dogs.

Kind of like making a religious argument, or telling people how to raise their kids.

Crates and dogs usually work great together.

Sometimes they don't. Daddy had to deal with that.

Regardless, the dog bit a kids finger off. It needed to be put down. I'm not saying the owners weren't crappy, but the damage is done at this point. That dog is dangerous.

This is possibly the most troll-laden thread out of the gate seen this year on Fark.

"I would throttle people who keep dogs in cages"
"The owners are assholes"
"The dog was clearly abused"

Good fraking job, let's all take the DOG's side now?  You completely project your cuddly-wuddlies onto this situation from your fantasy worlds, it's a good thing you have all this anonymity, try leaving your bathhouses and bringing up your points that the humans are the bad in the workplace.  Idiots.  If it was your kid, you wouldn't do it?  I would hate to do it, but good grief, the dog broke the cardinal rule - you don't attack humans.  That's it.  I'm also guessing none of the trolls have ever been to a farm, or never outside the city.

You're also a barometer for how American culture has degenerated into something completely unrecognizable from hard-working, rational, pre-free to be you and me, hug a tree America.  Good Lord.  I am guessing you're all in favor of insurgents, fudge-packing, Janet Napolitano, drones, the NEA, NAMBLA, Sean Penn's trips to Venezuela, etc.  I'm a dog owner too, and the dog bite and slaughter was tragic, but all you ball-less, soulless Prius drivers are damned cowards and nothing approximating men.  Get a farking pair.

I am confused by a lot in this thread. Either lots of super duper animal lovers or you guys do not have kids. Don't you guys crate train your pets?

If I had a dog that bit my kid that dog is gone and never coming back. Something like this? I would probably kill it myself even if I didn't need to retrieve a finger.

Dogs should NEVER bite people. The reason why doesn't matter. Aggression towards humans was bred out of dogs for a reason.

Oh really?

Explain to me why the elephant that killed my friend Mike is not only still alive but there was never even discussion of euthenasia, nor would he have wanted it. Go ahead and explain to me why the people who know animals the most don't even consider putting down a known killer when the attack has a rational explaination but an abused fighting dog deserves to be shot multiple times when it snaps at a kid dicking around with it.

Exactly. They were probably the ones that screwed the dog up, but that ship has sailed.
