Council ‘kills’ Kids’ Puppy Dog


Recommended Posts

When i had 2 dogs I couldn't have them wearing collars, they would honestly chew them off of each other so the only thing that would last is a metal chain which never felt safe about and until the dog is mature with them growing there's always a good chance for a microchip to move.

I don't think the council is to blame in the op, some things just didn't make sence and apart from anything i know when we have a new puppy well you buy all the essentials including a new collar and a id tag. Also it sounds like the guy contacted certain places only once and expected them to call him back, Well that's not how everything works people are busy and forget, I know if i was looking for a pet i'd have been ringing up daily to see if my pet had arrived. So given that the dog went missing on public holidays it sounds like he would have had a fair few days to ring around.

While i didn't agree at first with the 3 business day policy after the councillor expained it he would be right, most dogs would be located after 2 days if the owner was doing a legitimate search, animal shelters are overfull which is why they can't just keep holding animals in case the owner shows up, most times for the average bottom line family when a pet runs off they really don't care.

It appears that the honourable councillor's media spin has convinced the gullible and nay sayers who blame everything on dog owners, except themselves of course, coz they're perfect. It seems they respect others opinions as long as it doesn't differ from their own. As for the assertions made-

The dog was kept for 10 days not the 3 the pound takes to kill them, probably because it was over the holiday period. I would be surprised if any effort was taken to re-home the dog in the pound's care.

Did a vet diagnose Parvo? Was it simply suffering diahorrea due to a change in diet or stress, or both? It would be informative to see any paperwork on this. What infection control measures does the pound take to prevent these outbreaks?

Australia is one of a handful of countries which even bother to register dogs yet no evidence exists that kill rates are lower here or even in NSW where microchipping is mandatory. It's just another method of control and punishing people by killing their pets. It's illeggal to do it any other way now.

As dogs are considered disposable commodities they are killed on looks and it's the law, something more reminiscent of 1940s Germany than Australia in the 21st century, I would have thought. If it's a sheep, well we can bother to find the owner. Any wonder society is becoming more and more violent the way we view and treat companion animals!

User pays is necessary for dog owners but not livestock owners, library users, pedestrians, cyclists etc. I guess the council has to fund travel junkets in some way.

It seems that dog owners are the biggest contributor to council coffers than any other user of council services by far.

I find it hard to believe people work as ACOs because they love animals, more so because they love the power they have over animals but more particularly their owners. Politicians are renowned for using whatever means available to control people, in this instance I believe they are using their dogs.

Rather than media spin perhaps cr Andrew could tell us how the dogs are killed (simply farming them out doesn't cut the mustard) and what percentage of dogs which come into the pound's care are killed?

Got a problem Mr/Ms NoKillAustralia? Then take the effort to call me rather than make dark accusations as if the world is completely evil. Sometimes, and perhaps this may be difficult for you to accept, things just aren't as twisted as you have been so easily manipulated to believe. I take some of your accusations to heart because they insinuate something that I, like you, take very seriously. It is your right to have an opinion, not to make unfounded accusations or insinuations based on uncommon or past practice. You don't know me, nor I you, so rather than disparage me, call to discuss. Number below.

Still no contact from NKA. It would appear that courage of that kind only extends from a 'keyboard'.

NKA, I think you will find that I'm happy to listen to you and answer rational and reasonable questions. Just leave the hyperbole to one side and we might achieve something.

Now im a little confused with whats the norm with the council now. On the 21st of February i gave Cr Antoniolli a private email about the 2 unfenced dogs that live next to me, that roam whever they like. Neither dogs are socialised. These dogs have been brought to the attention of the officers and now the top man in the job, Where do i go from here "The Mayor", sorry its not a laughing matter. We all have to abide by the rules, i personally like my dogs in the yard so i know where they are, if its council rules for these dogs to be registered and fenced, why arent they.May i add that my 1st contact with the very 1st officer about this problem when there was 3 dogs roaming( one since gone for attacking livestock)was before my 2nd dog arrive. She will be 12months old in May. I think they have had enough time to work out whether or not to pay a 2nd visit.

Interesting thread. It seems Councils don't need to base or enforce legislation on facts. Divide and conquoer like the R$PCA and ALP. It seems councillors are happy for others to kill dogs as it appears their courage only stems from a bench.

Seriously?

The owner made a very poor effort to locate their puppy and the dog was held for 10 days.

I fail to see anything that suggests Cr Andrew Antoniolli was happy for others to euth the puppy.

Most importantly, it's an old thread. Take the drama elsewhere, this one has 10 pages of it and that's more than enough.

With all due respect OzPit, but i never mentioned anything to do with the opening thread and this is the thread that Cr Antoniolli responds to. I was curious about an issue i pm him and never physically responded to the council issue, which is somewhat to do with this thread.It was more of an open question, sorry if it didnt agree with you.
