Dog Shoots Man

This cretin got what he deserved.
Take a man, his dog, his dogs pups and a gun. What do you get? A man who thinks because he can't sell the dogs or give them away his only other choice is to SHOOT the pups.

Jerry Allen Bradford's female dog gave birth to seven puppys, such cuties! and were three months old, still unsold or wanted by anyone Brandford could find, so Brandford decided to kll them by shooting them in the head. He shot three (their bodies were found in a shallow grave) and had taken two more, one in each hand, while holding onto the gun. The dogs were wiggling and the dog in his left hand put his paws on the trigger and pulled, hitting the man in his wrist. He is facing felony animal cruelty charges. The family may be able to get the mother dog back, but the pups will be adopted. The mother and pupps are currently residing in Escambia County Animal Shelter, which I belive is in Pensacola Florida, so if you are in the area, and wanting a pup, stop and pick one of these up adorable creatures....before another storm hits (was Pensacola badly affected by the recent hurricane?)

Here's the thing; you own a dog, you own a responsibilty. NOT a play toy. Your obligation, if you don't get the dog spayed/neutered, is to take care of any dividends from dogs doing what comes naturally. Don't take on an animal, any animal, if you can't take on the responsibilty.

Once, when I was a little girl, at some sort of mostly craftsy summer event, someone was trying to find homes for kittens. And told me any kittens that didn't get homes would be drowned. So I told my sister, and she told a friend, and soon there were three or four little girls running around, asking everyone in sight to please adopt a kitten, so they wouldn't be drowned.

I saw a passer-by, and ran up with my "please help the poor kittens who are going to be drowned story." It turned out that this particular passer-by was the very owner who was planning to place the kittens or drown them.
