Uh, do they do things differently in Australia? Who keeps their dog chained up to a dog house outside in 2014 besides white trash? Granted, I don't live in a bad neighborhood, but I would fully expect that if I left my purebred pug outside unattended for any length of time, chain or not, my dog would be in the back of someones car getting sold for a couple hundred bucks within the hour.

...Why the FARK would you leave ANY dog, let alone a "possum sized" dog, outside in AUSTRALIA?

I know it's not the right one but I couldn't find the far side with a big snake that has a leash hanging out it's mouth (which I'm sure exists).

I'm sure I'll be lambasted for this, but why don't they kill the snake?  They've caught it, it's a killer, and is near the top of the food chain - what benefit is there to releasing it back in to the wild?  Sure, it may kill other small "vermin", but it's a dangerous predator with no real redeeming value (in my opinion).

Any rational explanation would be welcomed.  Hippie tree-hugger responses will be ignored.

So I'm supposed to steal a pet?  I'm aware of rescue organizations but those generally involve a "donation" of a good chunk of money.

They're going to release a DOG EATING SNAKE back into the wild? I would have cut its head off if a snake ate my dog.

Cut the snake open, and Bingo, have the dog back.

Or whatever the dog's name was.

I would shriek like a little girl, complete with the hyper over-reactive but completely useless physical flight motion, if I looked into that doghouse expecting to see my little foo-foo dog and was greeted by this instead.

It's hardly dangerous. It killed a dog the size of a squirrel in an odd situation. Why should a 50 year old animal get a death sentence for eating a morsel of food that was practically left out on a silver platter?

Yeah... It sounds like they do things differently in most parts of the US than they do where you live. If my dog got away, either someone would pick her up and bring her back, call my number which is on her tag and I'd go get her, or animal control would pick her up, house her for the night, and I'd pay to get her out.
Nobody would steal her and sell her

WTF, man?

Dangerous predator? No, it's a snake doing what snakes do. Unfortunately, this time it ate a small dog, which is sad, but still doesn't call for it being killed. This woman lives in Australia, where everything there can/will kill you, so she should have known there was a risk of her pet becoming prey. Now if this was a man-eater, then maybe they would have to kill it.

I think buying their pets from puppy mills and the like would be more exact. Better is to rescue, which usually has some fees/donations but they're not that bad and go to a good cause, or to read the classifieds and get one privately. I got our cat last year from the Humane Society, ran me a little over $100 (which I don't mind giving them at all), and he's the best damn cat I've ever owned. Best part is he was already house broke so I haven't cleaned a single mess up yet.

I think you inadvertently answered your own question mentioned Australia.


She added: '[The owner] had actually done the right thing by chaining up her dog, because she lives in an area with wildlife. [She was] obviously very upset by the whole situation.

I think 'the right thing' would have been to not to have left the dog outside in a wildlife area.

I was spouting hyperbole, of course.  Years ago, my roommates and I wanted a kitten so we went to the shelter.  The person who was showing us the kittens did the "oh, this guy's only got a couple days left" guilt trip so, of course, we took that cat.  We also had to purchase a certificate good for one spay or neuter even tho he clearly had nothing to chop off.  "Sorry, that's the rule."  It would have gone over better if they called it an "adoption fee" that came with a free spay or neuter.

So glad kill shelters are disappearing.

Fark her. Who the fark chains up a dog and leaves it outside overnight, or even for long stretches of the day. Little thing didn't even have a chance. For 20,000 years dogs have been bread to be social animals. They need to be with their people. She should prosecuted to the full extend of the law Did I say fark her?

Hey, it was the decision I made, I don't need to defend myself. Shelters and rescues are a hassle, and often not a whole lot cheaper than what I paid to get my dog from a reputable breeder. Also, 95% of the dogs in shelters here are Pitt Bulls, which is more dog than I can handle. Normally I'm with you, save the dogs that need homes, but in my case, I wanted a specific dog, one that's generally in high demand that you aren't going to find in any shelters.

She should have kept the snake.  It's already on a chain so she can take it for walks.  Er, slithers.
 
2014-03-14 02:16:31 PM  
She had chained her 'possum-sized' Chihuahua-Maltese cross inside the kennel, to stop it disturbing native wildlife, leaving it unable to escape from the hungry python.

Sounds like it was disturbing native wildlife, so native wildlife decided to fight back?

Are pythons native to Australia? If not, why did they let an invasive predator species go back into the wild? Not much useful has ever come out of Florida, but acknowledging an invasive species problem and doing something about it is worth noting.

has anyone stopped to consider that maybe

1. the dog was asking for it, what with that bondage gear on and it "come eat me" smell or
2. it is actually a new breed of python that can shoot chain from it's mouth.

Too slow; I'd attach the other side of the chain to my Buick, and see how many miles it would take to make a hatband.

Well, there you go - I'm 50 years old, and if an animal took my stuff and it was left out there absolutely on a silver platter, it's mine to do with. In a predator-kill-predator world, it sucked to be the dog, and it sucks to be a snake on a chain. Wait for it to shiat out a chain end, padlock the two ends together, and watch the world's first biological Slitheryn Hogawart's train set. All aboard the "Ouroboros Express!"

Or, take the whole assembly and go fish for a crocodile. I don't see why snakey should get a pass on experiencing the whole "circle of life" thing firsthand.
