How could he fuck up this badly

One of my dogs attacked my other dog so I beat the piss of of it until it let go of its throat. My gf is now screaming at me about how dogs are children and should be reasoned with. Is it wrong to beat a dog?

This, better to just kill the dog now just in case, 1 bullet to the head aughta do, 2 if it's a shitbull.

Ignore the pansy ass faggots infesting your thread. You did the right thing. A human can never hurt a dog nearly as bad as a dog can hurt another dog.

Sounds like you need to get rid of the asshole dog and the girl. Maybe pair them up and take the good dog for yourself.
>>
>>3445822
You are completely correct. Don't listen to retards. You had to do what you had to do, and you should ask your girlfriend if she would rather have a beaten dog or a killed dog.
>>
>>3447861
>Maybe pair them up and take the good dog for yourself.
This is actually a good idea. Tell her the violent dog is hers, and give them both the boot.
If they're both your dogs and she doesn't live with you just cut ties and find a more rational partner. GF = test wife, and she just failed.

>The RSPCA was called to a car park when a member of the public heard a cat crying from a Volkswagen Golf.

>With the permission of the car's owner, firefighters lifted it up to try and free the cat. But before it could be captured, the cat escaped and ran under a BMW and did the same.

>The BMW's owner was traced and the car was partially taken apart, but the cat then dashed under the RSPCA van. The van required less dismantling since it was higher from the ground and a firefighter managed to catch the cat in his arms before she could escape again.

Even without them, Europe would still be overpopulated. This isn't a left-vs-right problem, it's a normie problem. Very few people actually appreciate and respect wild nature, most just see it as a resource that can easily be sacrificed for political and economic reasons.

Depends on what you consider "dangerous"

Fed animal is more likely to ambush correctly and score a kill but it will also easily give up if you put up a fight
Starving animal might fuck up due to exhaustion but if it has a chance to get a meal, it is not giving up
>>
>>3447598
>when fed?
You mean by people? Fed gators and bears can be aggressive and belligerent

>>3447618
>>3447619

Which one would you rather fight hand to hand

A starved bear or a fed bear
>>
>>3447620
specifically with bears i'd go for the starved simply because he is weaker, also they are omnivores and scavangers mostly so him attacking me isnt the only option it has, so it might give up if i hurt it.
If you'd say tiger or jaguar, i'd go with fed since then i can just annoy him up to the point it leaves (lets me honest i couldnt fight it at all, annoying them by throwing rocks or smthing is the only chance i got), starved jaguar wouldn't

One of my cats died today. She declined rapidly to the point where she wasn't even really there anymore towards the end. It's hard because we were hoping she would improve (she was getting treatment) but instead she just kept getting worse - in trying to help her, did we just prolong her suffering? I don't know if we made the right choice.
Anyway, give your animals a hug or pet from me. Take good care of them, you're all they have in the world.
>>
Sorry, anon, you did what you had to. It sucks either way, I've euthanized several animals and although they may have suffered less, but I'll never be able to let go of the pain of having taken their lives.
I don't think having a vet do it is any different, regarding culpability.
>>
>>3447250
sounds like you did the right thing at the right time anon
>>
>>3447250
IKTF anon.

Don't bother yourself with the question if you did the right choice at the right time or not, but think of the good life you gave that cat.

Maybe get another cat and treat it as well as you treated your current cat.
