I don't see it as cruelty. So it's ok to feed live mice to a snake, but not a puppy?

However, the article does say that he pleaded guilty to animal cruelty, and that his snake was found to have been neglected. So maybe THAT'S why he's on probation, as opposed to the puppy thing.

it's not right to feed a snake an animal, even though that's all they do eat? As I said before, people feed live rats and mice to snakes all the time. No uproar about that. But as soon as it's an animal that's a bit bigger, a bit cuter, and everyone's up in f*cking arms.

i dunno... maybe because mice and rats have a larger population than puppies? im not sure. i think just a lot of people like puppies.

Well its clear he was doing it for his own sick and twisted pleasure but in reality this is no more cruel than feeding the snake a mouse or a rat. It was probably kinder on the snake, in the wild they eat things like warthogs and things even bigger, i'd hate to be the snake that then got caught and sent to a zoo where all i got was a few little rats every day, a puppy would be a welcome treat

I like this man's thinking.

I'm not saying I would feed a snake to a puppy. I can't afford a puppy every two weeks.

I completely agree with you. It's idiocy, it is only because it is seen as a more domestic animal in our culture, hell i'd eat a dog if it was served and cooked, because at the end of the day it's still meat, and if it tasted good i'd do it again without a second thought. You don't care when you eat cows or chicken etc do you. This snake is just eating a meal at the end of the day, just like your hamburger or steak.

^^ Apart from the thing where dogs are mans best friend, and the fact that if someone tried to feed a live snake to a dog is rather befuddling.
People dont see feeding mice and rats to snakes bad because there are huge amounts of them and they breed incredibly fast, they carry disease that can be passed on to humans and theyre pests.

EDIT - Anyway, im a great dog lover, so you guys probably shouldnt worry about my bias opinion here

Its looked down upon because the dog isnt given the chance to escape. In the wild the victims of the snakes can escape if they are careful. The conncection people make with dogs is probabaly the big issue here. No one thows sticks to rats to fetch."A dog is a mans best friend" Its simply becasue you can get love back from your dog if oyu give love to it. if you fed mice to the snake, the mice hate you and you hate the mice! No one makes connections with mice, they carry loads of disease, arent friendly and eat holes in places that cannot be reached to fix! lmao. Simply dogs are more valuable to men. Mice are vermin.

How would a snake dispose of the skeletal structure of the dog he devoured?

Exactly. Dog is a delicacy in China, it's not seen as animal cruelty over there. Nor would it be seen as animal cruelty if he'd have fed another non-domestic animal to the snake.

However they do it in the wild. Isn't their stomach acid strong enough to dissolve bone?

Odd.

Rats and mice are fine, jeez UG, why would you eved try to defend them. If we stopped kill rats and mice, we'd have millions on out hands. Not cool. Puppies = Wrong. It's a domestic animal, and if not, in the wild dogs are hunters, not prey. Also, he bloody oiled it up, puppy had no chance. And made kids watch. Rats and mice, go for your life. And that rhymed.

But that's a nonsensical argument. Whether an animal is a domestic creature or whether it is wild should not dictate how it can and cannot be treated. Besides, since when did people start going to prison for animal rights?

I think people who hit animals with their cars are worse than this guy, because at least he was feeding an animal in the process. It's called the food chain.

In a zoo in Sweden, they had an overpopulation of guinea pigs, so they decided to give some of them to the snakes as food.

When they got back a day later, the rodent had killed the snakes.

So THAT'S why you should only feed it mice.

Still, if the snake would starved to death, that would have been one death compared to all the dogs that dies to feed it, ever seen it that way?
Life is cruel either way.

It's pathetic to see how people consider an animal more important than another because they think it's more cute.

And this animal cruelty thing is stupid. I kill bugs almost every day. I step on them, I swat them away. Unintentional as it may be, that's animal cruelty by definition. If I treated a puppy in the same way, people would think I'm a sick twisted psycho or something.

What makes a bug less important than a puppy? Both are living beings.

If the only criteria for favoring an animal over another is because of what they look like and how easily we can relate to their appearance, then the world is stupid. As if that was new.

run around and shit all over the place.

Really?

How small and stupid does an animal have to be so torturing it wouldn't be considered "animal cruelty"?

I was wondering when the barrages of "that's sick" and "omgzorz, the puppy? oh noes!" would start

omgzorz, the puppy? oh noes omgzorz, the puppy? oh noes omgzorz, the puppy? oh noes
Is that a sufficent barrage?
