Two weekends in a row have had the police arrive, first a hideous huge trap clamped around my dogs paw, this weekend, came home to find that some sick &^ attacked my BLIND dog!!!
First time around, the cops were super. Second go round…less than stellar. Three friends with far better chinese skills than I, came to help sort out the matter…The police, were most unwilling to DO anything let alone write a report! [ Like I am to be surprised right?] “Just a dog” " It’s the aboriginals, you know how they are…"
NOT…".let’s go ask the neighbors if they saw or heard anything?"…oh noooo…not That!
BUT…at the strong persistence of my friend…and the simple fact that she went right up to the other houses and ASKED…dragged the police derriers into action…sort of.
They tried unsuccessfully to bugger off.
The trap was purely assinine, as people walk in these areas. Near the mountains, lovely…and of course the farms here and there. It took two men with two crow bars and two women straining to get the damn thing off his paw! Nothing they can do. [ I know] But reporting and acknowleding that something is amiss would be a start at any rate, but how to start anything when the first line of defense shrugs …“it’s the way it IS, you know that.”<---- I DO know that…But…There are LAWS…for a reason. These traps are illegal for a Reason. People can get caught in them too. <— Keep your dog on a leash. Don’t let them run. All is well. [I know] but there are too many for leashes, and I run in the same places they do! It could have been me!
The other lovely act of malice, purely revolting…and pretty certain of the source…makes my blood boil!..but no proof. Still want that damn report though!
Rambling…Venting…basically pretty PO’d and very sad for Mia, as she is BLIND and could not run away, as she is scared to even walk…GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR…Sometimes…Well…kept the trap…so it may get some proper use yet.
