    Animal Cruelty or not . . .

    . . . . . So anyway, here on July 4th a couple (man & woman) lit a dog on fire!! Extreme cruelty, right? The woman was arrested, and they are still looking for the man. Here's the thing. The cops say the dog was already dead, before they lit it on fire. It's a stupid thing they did, but since the dog was already dead, is that really cruelty? What Say you?

    About four years ago I my dog Sophie had to be put down. After the vet did the job and she died the vet asked me if I would like to spend some time with her. I told him no thanks, it is now just a dead dog. This past month my dog Sally died as I was walking her so to dispose of that dog drove it to the vet and at my wife's insistence had her cremated and now her remains are in an urn.

    My question is whose dog was it? Where did this happen?

    It would never occure to me to roast any of my dead dogs.

    It certainly was a stupid asinine thing they did. For more details look up a link dog set on fire at beach parking lot. I tried to post the link, but for some odd reason my personal info also is included with the link, so I didn't post it.

    Perhaps they were trying to save money on the cremation?
    I suspect alcohol was involved.
    Cruelty?
    I would think that doing this in a public location, where children might witness it and not understand what was going on was perhaps stupid and thoughtless. But cruel? I dunno.

    Ask the kids.

    Did they run it down? Then, tried to get rid of the evidence? There might be more to the story?

    The dog belonged to the women involved, and it was the COPS who said the dog was dead before the couple set it on fire.

    There are obviously other factors at play here - did they violate any laws with regard to burning an animal carcass in public, or whether they were the ones who killed the dog in the first place - but the act of burning a dog that was already dead doesn't strike me as cruel.

    Hi Erin, nice to meet you. Yes I agree, the dog already being dead is really not animal cruelty.
