In This Word Picture...Pick The Animal!
A small article in today's paper caught my eye and attention.
"Man sets dog on to policeman to avoid being arrested."
The 'man' concerned will spend the rest of the year behind bars after setting his dog on to police, who had been called to a domestic dispute at a home in suburban Ipswich, south-west of Brisbane. When the police officers attempted to arrest him, he set his cattle dog onto the police. One officer was taken to hospital for treatment to bites to his calf and his knee. The arrested 'man' appeared before a specially convened session of the Ipswich Magistrate's Court and was remanded in custody until February 21 when he will face several charges, including assault occasioning bodily harm, serious assault and obstructing and assaulting police.
The cattle dog was surrendered to the council and will be destroyed by the owner's request!
There is something very, very wrong in this picture! The poor innocent dog was only doing what its owner commanded it to do! I see no reason for it being 'put down' and this upsets me!
