Welcome to WTF Wednesday. The day where I read and review news stories about animals and generally ask WTF was the human thinking?
Most times I find myself wishing for an eye for an eye.
All kinds of WTF on this one. The original story stated the dog had recently had puppies and been thrown from a car. At first I thought the owners might need to head over to The Poodle (and Dog) Blog for the Neanderthal or Lizard Brain award.
I thought, how hard could it really be to track these assholes down? I mean at some point they need to sell or give away the puppies, right? A smart cop would be scouring the papers/Craig’s List for the next month or so and should easily be able to discover the douche bag that threw the dog out.
Enter the next bit of WTF. I bookmarked the page so I could reference it in this post and when I checked the Rochester, NH Police Dept’s Facebook page, it had been updated saying the story of the dog being thrown out of a car was fabricated.
Who makes shit like this up? And WTF for?
This little guy was found in a crate in an intersection in Naples, Florida.
Brian Lachat initially thought it was a recycle bin. He watched as one car and then another hit the container. Then he saw the dog flopping around and quickly rescued the dog.
Turns out the dog had been surrendered to a rescue and was coming back from being neutered. Hopefully he was still juiced up on anesthesia because apparently the transport van lost the dog.
LOST THE DOG. And the crate.
How the hell do you lose a crate? Do you not notice a door is open. Or maybe think, hmmm I put three dogs in, but now there are only two…where did the third dog go?
How do you not know a door came open?
It boggles my mind.
I’m not trying to bash the rescue but maybe they should screen their volunteers just a tiny bit closer. Maybe one of their questions should be, WTF do you do to secure a dog in transport?
