Why dont you own a protection dog, anon? If you live in urban area, don't you care about your home, your family and about yourself? Don't you might be arround blacks or other criminals?

if you are around the dog, of course
but you can't train a dog not to eat something fling over a fence, when you are not around

there is 0 ways to prevent this

I dunno, moving to a non-shithole country might prevent it.
>>
>>3874310
in a "non shithole country" you don't need a protection dog then
>>
>>3874312
The problem is you can live in a 'non-shithole country', but there will still be criminal elements who seek to deprive you of your property. If you're worried that someone might poison your animal, do not leave it outside unattended for any lengthy period. Those around you who seek to burglarize you will simply see a dog, a housepet, but one they still don't wish to contend with because it's a living, breathing burglar alarm and has the absolute potential to fuck their day up. Give them no opportunity to harm your dog.
The best guard animal isn't the GSD/malinois/rottweiler/mastiff/insert stereotypically used breed here that's left to roam the yard and look tough. It's the one who you include as part of the family, whom they feel a deep seeded obligation to defend.My dog is not a trained guard dog, but her breed predisposes her to guarding behavior, and if I have her out in public, if we're approached by someone she's never seen or interacted with, she puts herself between them and me. I did not train this, this is just what she does.

>>3874307
Keeping your dog inside when you're not in the house is a good way of preventing this.

Pretty sure without humans to help them domestic cats would get mogged hard by bobcats and lynx too. They're not even the apex predator of small felines. All the catfags who frequent /an/, including its jannies, aren't even stanning the superior kinds of cat.

Honestly I think women fuck them more but men are more likely to be reported to the cops because our society hates men so much some people want to make all sex with a man rape if a legally binding contract isn't signed and notarized first

>Pepito, a beloved 4 year old chihuahua turned police drug sniffing dog for the San Diego County has passed away after receiving a fatal kick from a suspect that was attempting to flee from police. Police say the suspect had attempted to grope multiple women in Mission Beach Boardwalk. Police were called to the scene. A nearby police officer, Officer Bigs, was transporting Pepito from a precinct to a local airport and pulled away from delivering Pepito to assist his fellow officers. Bigs circled around the boardwalk and spotted the suspect, but no other officers had arrived on scene. The suspect ran after being asked to stop to talk by Officer Bigs. Bigs chased after the suspect down the boardwalk, but slipped on sand, causing him to fall and accidentally push a button on the remote that control's the K9 vehicle's door, releasing Pepito. "He was so fast, I thought it was some sort of furry RC car", said one witness. Pepito, the young and eager chihuahua rushed towards Officer Bigs, but did not stop for Bigs. "I kind of laughed as he was coming towards me on the ground, but he just kept going. I knew there was going to be trouble if I didn't chase after him" said Officer Bigs. Pepito, despite not having K9 training outside of sniffing for contraband, chased after the suspect. After a short chase a loud yelping from Pepito was heard and nearby beachgoers screamed. The suspect had brutally kicked the 6 pound chihuahua and escaped. Veterinarians pronounced Pepito dead on scene after receiving the brutal kick from the suspect. Pepito was laid to rest on July 18th. Police describe the suspect as light skinned, 5'5", possibly Asian or Latino, with a skinny build. San Diego County asks for anyone with information to contact them.

I live in a rural area, you've got the corrupt chief, the dipshit that they tried to replace because he was spotlighting deer with his cruiser and shooting them with his service pistol, but then they rehired because no one applied for their position, "Little Hitler" the deputy who I used to beat up once a week in highschool because he jerked off on my little sister's locker handle and I didn't want him to forget that this wasn't OK, and Lonely John, who's known for pulling people over for discretionary bullshit so he can talk to a captive audience for 5 minutes before letting you off with a "warning" for the non-crime you committed.

If I've got a trespasser, I'm lucky if they show up in half an hour, and that's if Little Hitler isn't the deputy on duty on my side of the township, because they know better than to dispatch him to my house, so it'll be an hour or more then.

There is no good explanation for that. I would bet a lot that most are due to being left in cars in states that don't train about heat protection well enough. It rarely happens in my state (despite most of our K-9 unit dogs working in the hottest metro area of the US). The last K-9 unit dog that died from heat exhaustion here was aiding a search mission for missing hikers in 2016.

I've always heard that powered flight evolved 4 times on earth: bugs, pterosaurs, birds, bats. Has it evolved any other time? Are there any other entirely extinct lineages of flying animals other than pterosaurs? Are there any lineages that got close?

Habituated year-round, semi-domestic Canada geese? Contact animal control or local wildlife rehabbers, there are professionals who are frequently called to properly round up and deal with "problem" geese that cause issues. Sometimes they are relocated, sometimes especially if they are hybrid mixed flocks or otherwise nonviable they are humanely put down. Don't go with non-verified private businesses, it's mostly shady idiots who don't understand what they're doing or the laws they frequently break, and can get you into a heap of trouble when Fish & Wildlife finally catch up to them. If they are migrating wild Canada geese then it's just tough luck, you can deal with their shit for a little while and they'll eventually leave. Trying to make your property undesirable for the geese usually ends up ruining it more than keeping the geese around for a bit. Even the local golf courses have learned it's far easier and less expensive to just deal with them for a bit until they move on.
If they're just domestic or feral geese then I would call animal control.
