Death-defying dog

A dog is hit by a car, a cop shoots her in the head to put her out of her misery, and the dog is put into a body bag in a freezer. A few hours later, an animal control worker opens up the freezer and the body bag is standing up… the dog was still alive.

A really amazing story. (via Alex)

    What I don’t understand is why that cop shot the dog in the first place. According to the news report I saw, the only real injuries the dog suffered were from the gunshot wound and hypothermia. It didn’t break any bones from the accident, so while it must have appeared to have been stunned after being hit by the car, I still don’t see a justification for the cop trying to “put it out of its misery.”

    And to the veterinary workers: don’t you take a pulse?

    the cop isnt going to be punished at all?? it shouldnt have been his decision to make as to whether or not to put the dog out of its misery…this makes me angry

    Of course he’s not going to be punished-there’s no law against putting an animal down when it’s been injured. The cops in NJ, where I used to live, would shoot deer who were hit by cars all the time.

    If the dog had really been so injured that it had little or no chance of survival, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with putting it out of its misery. My quarrel is with the fact that the dog couldn’t have been that injured by the car because it had no broken bones… so shooting it was wrong, in my opinion.

    I dont think that it right at all. I think that officer should serve some time. Where are the animal activists when you need them?
