Was the dog shot?

I sure it was a threat of some sort.

That was my initial concern as well but then I noticed it happened in Europe so the dog is fine.

Great headline subby! Have a cold one to celebrate, and let me call the dog over to help you open it ...

Horrible pun. Which means it was a good pun.

Nice for it to be funny and well handled by the authorities!

Nice find subby.

And that's why you don't make the emergency number "hit one button three times in a row".  It's much harder for a dog, or your butt, to hit "911" by accident.

Seriously, I had a cellphone once (back in the pre-smartphone era) that would unlock itself and send a blank or "111111111......" or "aaaaaaaa....." text to the first number in the contact list if "1" got held down for more than a second or two. (Unlock: hold 1. Pick first entry in list AND confirm button: 1. First entry in main list: text a contact. DURRRRRRR.) Had to fight my mobile phone company about charging me for a bazillion texts the month I discovered this; they gave in when I pointed out the number in question was my aunt's *landline* phone, so I *couldn't* actually have been texting messages, and explained how it happened.

I had to put a fake (no number) entry at the top of my contact list to stop it. And picked a flip phone as my next one specifically to prevent something-in-my-purse-dialing.

Also: nice headline, subby!

It took me waaaay too long to get that joke.

Cute story, as well.

It was even better because the headline was long enough that I couldn't see the punch line coming, and then when it hit, I was like. Ha! HA HA HA!!

I haven't had one of those moments around here in a while.

911 what's the problem caller?
Roof!
There is someone on the roof?

Because lots of people had phones with buttons in their pockets in 1937.

My poor kid (who is a bit shy and hates to be the center of attention) butt dialed 911. From school.

I guess you aren't familiar with cellphones that have a simple function, like hold a button long enough, that will automatically call emergency services.  A coworker has already had the police show up to his apartment after butt dialing 911.

Add my vote to that punishing headline.

I used to have a phone that when locked, wouldnt register any buttons being pressed... with the exception of 911.  Sounds great on the surface, until you realize that pushing 517334519915151531588115 in your pocket would end up dialing 911.

Really sucks, called 2 or 3 times by accident until I switched to a flip phone.  (yes, this was "back in the day".

This is from the UK.  They only shoot harmless dogs in the US.

Funny, I stuck to flip phones till this past June for this exact reason.  I switched phones, only because I wanted a smart phone with more apps.  I haven't butt dialed yet, however, I don't carry my phone in my back pocket.  It's why I like clips.

Did the police administer a little ruff justice?

Why do UK papers always put "Grandmother of x" in every story?  It seems like every time Fark has a story from a British paper they always refer to the amount of children/grandchildren the person has, even if it's not even remotely germane to the article.

Since they're godless over there, I think it's their euphemism for "god fearing".

And yet the number of criminals in the US who accidentally dial the police and let them know of their criminal intent never seems to decline as evidenced by the number of stories that appear here on Fark. There's usually one a week.

Your methodology sounds very scientific.
