"Whangarei SPCA manager Francine Shields said it was sad someone should feel desperate enough to take such a measure."

What a crock.

Its exactly why people should protest

Man pays fee for his pet

Nothing else needs to be done

Age has nothing to do with it, unless you're in a police state.

THey wuldn't let the man be honest.

Its the coucils fault!

I reme,ber when they stopped old ladies taking baking to their weekly get togethers in the 90's.

A council did that.

Fascists!

Well,you can understand the old ladies not wanting to hand over their birth dates! They may be good at baking...but can be shocking fibbers at times.

He obviosly wasn't a animal lover so I don't know why he had a dog in the first place. I love my dog to bits.

I sincerely hope he gets charged - a very cruel and inhumane act - makes me sick to read things like this.

He won't get charged because the beauracracy doesn't want to make an issue of it.

He called their bluff very strongly and they walked away.

If enough people made just as strong protests they would see things change for the better in this country.

But for that to happen it takes conviction and strength and yes, sometimes something tragic the man never counted on.

%0 yrs ago it was ww2. Today, someone shot his dog and everyones shocked. That's called sacrifice and exactly why the system wins.

They know he was 0ne in a million and they can ignore his protest.

But the 1080 drop got cancelled didn't it.

No, no, leave the baby seals! If anything needs to be dealt to, it's those damn dolphins....

I've heard about Pelorus Jack and Moko. I wish we had something like that in South Africa. I live near False Bay where instead of friendly dolphins we have jumping great white sharks.
