Came across this story on Larry’s page about a man who attempted to beat his dog to death with a shotgun and wound up shooting himself dead instead. It would be nice to say that this is a case of poetic justice being served, but alas, the ending isn’t so happy. Via Greg Hlatky, I see that the dog was euthanized by request of its owner, the dead man’s wife.
I have exactly no sympathy for anyone who would try to beat a dog to death for any reason. I’m going to give Harry a few extra treats today in this dog’s memory.
