I'd fire him...i'd seriously consider firing the editor too.

That cesspool he considers a column shouldn't have been published. Any idiot with some knowledge of journalism would know that. The fact that it was published goes to show how much effort they put into reviewing what gets published, which is about the same effort the Canucks put in scoring a pp goal these days.

"I felt sympathy because Paulsen is going to lose her right to freedom over the death of six animals who, at the end of the day, are essentially inconsequential to this world."

At the end of the day, Paulsen, reporter dumbfuck, myself, and everybody else on this planet are "essentially inconsequential" as well, so does this fucktard think killing anything doesn't matter then? In the grand scheme of things absolutely nothing anyone does matters for fuck all, the whole planet could explode right now and it wouldn't make a lick of difference, so I'm not entirely sure what this stupid sack of shit is trying to say.

I can buy a human for "a few hundred bux", should trying to cover up and lie about manslaughter not land you in jail as well? Which, afaik, is the part that's landing her jail time, not the deaths.

Yes, you can. It's not legal in most places, but you can do it.

They don't exist in the wild so...

My cats are from the SPCA, the inlaws dogs and cats (now just cat I guess, RIP Tiger ) are from the SPCA, IIRC all the pets in my extended family aside from maybe 1 are from the SPCA or were rescued in some way (which I think lands near 20 pets).

So many people on the forum claim to love dogs but I where did you get your dog from. That will show how much you love dogs.
actually people are literally bought and sold every day and it's been happening since the beginning of people.

there are allowances for sentimental value in law. heirlooms, trophies, pictures.

the aforementioned labradoodles' labradoodleness is not relevant to the discussion. as for "forcing" 2 dogs to mate? WOW. if by forcing you mean "not constantly stopping the dogs from fucking"

both my dogs are spca mutts. so go break a bottle and sit on it.

you're like that 14 year old girl who just discovered peta. it's really cute but hopefully you'll grow out of it and at least educate yourself about the subject as opposed to being that little 14 year old spaz screaming meat is murder at a mcdonalds. keep up that fight you adorable little rebel.

I couldn't believe this comment: “Although I enjoyed having a dog and I can understand how people get emotionally attached to their pets, I have to say that fatherhood changed my perspective on the human-animal hierarchy"

You're joking right? What the fuck does having a kid have to do with the relationship with a pet? I just had a daughter in July and my dogs are now 10 years old. I love them just the same now and also love my daughter. I don't see how my dogs would all of sudden become second rate. We're all one big family. I hope your not teaching your kid your views on the human-animal hierarchy.

I thought the same thing, having a child should give him more in-site how important a pet is especially with the way he would see his kids with the animals.

I saw on twitter that people are now going after his wife for the things that he said. Talk about wrong but I have a feeling this guy will think twice before putting out a story like that again.

haha, that's harsh. People need to be smart about this. Threatening and saying shit like that on social media can be a recipe for disaster. As much as I feel the same way I always watch what I say online(more Twitter/FB rather than forums). Not sure how the Criminal Code works with social media but that Kevin Hayer guy is basically threatening Adrian and the proof is now public.

I do agree that my comments were over the line, my anger and frustration with the article got the best of me and in a way I do regret it. I'm happy this is now national news and hopefully he will lose his job now.

I honestly don't think Murd0c's comments were that bad. If anything that guy was a total bag of dicks for publicizing comments he knew damn well were coming. He's an even bigger sack of shit for trying to get some public pity out of it.
He probably received emails that were far worse. Hell, if people could read my mind after I read that article they'd probably think I'm some deranged psychopath.

The way I was looking at it at the time was the dogs were locked in a car, basically tortured to death and then then the family's were lied about what happened. So that's the reason why I made that comment but of course it was blown out a proportion but that's the internet for ya!!

I have heard from a lot of people that have told me they would of said a lot worse then what I did. I'm just happy I only had 140 bars to deal with.

We aren't arguing the ethics of dog breeding you dumb fuck. Fwiw i'd probably agree with you in such an argument, to a point.

I also own a 97 Civic hatch that I haven't driven in 2 years but don't want to sell it and work 7 days a week.

At least some cities are taking the lead and trying to stop breeders.

San Diego City Council unanimously votes to ban retail sale of dogs, cats, rabbits in pet stores - 10News.com KGTV ABC10 San Diego

Also just because I don't a agree with you shouldn't attack me personally.

What's the difference between an attack and a simple statement of truth?

A dog is more than an animal in our society, wether you appreciate it or not, its fact.
These were a bunch of dogs, who were loved by their families, and to not understand that is simply stupid.
Dogs are not just pets, therapy dogs provide joy to geriatric patients at hospitals, confidence to autistic children, lead the blind in their day to day lives, provide support to our soldiers with PTSD in their darkest days with unconditional love, tech children how to be parents in their later years by providing care and patience for a living being that relies upon them for guidance. I could go on for hours with their roles, but thats a pretty reasonable start.
The lives of many humans have been greatly affected positively by dogs and our society as a whole benefits from the human/dog relationships, as well as dogs benefit from it. If you made it through grade 6 science you'd understand how a symbiotic relationship between species exists and how the dog/human interaction is the perfect example.
If you can't understand that, there is simply something wrong with the functions of your brain.

You are missing the point. My point was people are upset because they are dogs. If it was some other animal that was not a pet there would not be so much outrage.
