Oh, voi. I forgot that the internet does not do well with translating emotion. I was kidding with the first sentence. I was actually mocking PETA, #52. This is why I usually mention that I'm kidding but everyone is always an ass about that so, apparently, there's no winning here. Actually, when I read the FML, I imagined it happening in classic Disney animation and it was surprisingly nightmarish but I was kidding with the first sentence. I do hope those kids manage to forget that though. That's not a memory that would be fun to have.
Vicious? Why? Because a dog ate a rabbit? What about when humans eat pigs? Or when the dog eats the dog food that contains meat? Why is one worse than the other? All situations involve living animals that are killed for food. Its natural, as long a the animal wasnt raised in a cage just to have a painful death.
Not all easter egg hunts have candy lying on the ground and not all dogs will eat it. My parents would put our candy and eggs in little baskets and hide them, to make sure the food didn't get dirty - that is a relatively simple situation to control. Some dogs are picky eaters who wouldn't touch food on the ground anyway. Our dog wasn't one of them, but we'd go out into the woods where no leashes are necessary and let her roam free. Since my parents knew exactly where the baskets were, nothing ever happened.
#51 That's hunting instinct, not hunger. Do you really think outdoor dogs and cats kill because they're starving? Most of them are well fed at home, and will not actually eat their kills. It's natural for them to chase after small animals, and if they catch them... well, you know what'll happen.
#54, I can agree with this, my Pomeranian spotted a rabbit this winter and went running down the road after it. The only chance she would of catching a rabbit is if it were dead, but she still chased it. It looked funny though, a tiny white thing chasing a huge white thing through the snow.
Well that's a holiday memory the kids will never forget
Wow, this is my first time hearing of a dog actually CATCHING a rabbit, more or less eating it.
