I don't like animals or pets and don't really care about these incidents.
What I do care about is how we care more about these insignificant animals when children and people are getting killed, abused, mistreated. People would rather worry about a dog over a human being. Lets look at Africa for example. Children suffering, malnutrition, aids etc... Nobody gives a damn. But a poor old dog get more sympathy and attention.

Sometimes I think the human race is doomed.

Suffering, malnutrition and aids in Africa? When did this all start?

Glad they found the owner. He was arrested for something else and no charges have been laid pertaining to Captain.

Mentally ill man is mentally ill, thus not responsible.
tragedy about the dog though.
He will end up with a pet ownership ban and medication.

The mentally ill part is still yet to be determined i believe.

Being mentally ill doesn't always mean not being criminally responsible.

i thought the same thing after reading your post. If we as humans cant even treat animals with kindness and love how can we do the same for people. Also animals ask alot less of us than people do. It must be a very cold world you live in

You can't have an open heart to both? Both are in a state of suffering, and in any really honesty, we can much more easily and readily help a local dog get out of suffering then we can clean up an entire continent and its civil wars and famine etc. Fixing the world starts with the small stuff.

I agree with you, but the original poster has a bit of a point. When we start thinking about having a dog park named in the dog's name because of the unfortunate event...it boggles my mind that we care SO MUCH about this issue to go that far. And just as a disclaimer, I am compassionate, I was saddened when I heard that story about the dog being dumped in a dumpster. But that doesn't mean society has to dwell on these small issues and neglect larger ones just because they are more seemingly "out of reach".
Sometimes I think that, Its really whatever sells newspapers and makes listeners tune in that makes the top news stories, regardless if they are the truly the most significant stories today.

It's a freaking dog. The point I'm trying to make is that we put more importance towards an animal than we do other humans.
Dogs are not humans and don't take precedence even if people have them as pets. An animal is an animal at the end of the day.
We eat animals and kill them everyday, they have no importance in life except providing us nutrition.

We need to focus on saving the children in 3rd world countries first. I could give a rats ass about a dog in what is obviously an isolated case.

Why do you people seem to think that sympathizing with one sad story is a slight at all the other sad things in the world?? Like OMG, I feel bad for the abused dog, I must not care about human starvation. :rolleyes: Give your head a shake buddy. OK, you don't care about the dog, I get it. How about you enlighten everyone on your work as a philanthropist.

This whole idea that the people who are disgusted with this don't value human life as much as an animal's is in your own head.

Regardless of other problems going on here or elsewhere in the world that doesn't condone abuse and would like you to make an argument that it does.

You think paying attention to a guy who fatally wounded a dog and left him to die in a dumpster is coming at the cost of saving children in the third world? You are using that weak argument to shield the real justifications in your mind for holding your beliefs.

Animal cruelty isn't an isolated case. Remember the hundreds of sled dogs in Whislter? Or the serial cat killer in Maple Ridge? The fact is people like you don't care about animals because, as you describe, they only serve to provide humans with nutrition.

A person who feels the need to abuse animals is someone who has serious issues. They are more likely to abuse fellow human beings. Some of the worst serial killers like Dahmer, Bundy, the Iceman all started off abusing animals. Magnotta tortured kittens and posted videos of it online.

At the end of the day I think you're an idiot who does not make a strong argument to support their view point. By your logic I guess dog fighting would be okay as well.

Nobody gives a damn? Maybe you don't but a lot of people here in BC are very charitable with their time and money and work to help other places as well. Fact is this happened in our own backyard. Like another poster asked, what have you done to help those suffering from malnutrition in Africa. Just come clean and say you don't give a crap about animals and you would have no problem with them being tortured to death if it was a cathartic experience for the perpetrator.

A man identified as Brian Whitlock, owner of the young German shepherd found severely abused, bolted from reporters after being released from police custody Thursday.Whitlock lit a cigarette as he left the Vancouver Provincial court jail around 5:30 p.m. after being detained Wednesday for charges of criminal harassment unrelated to the dog incident.He refused to answer questions from the media before he ran down the block.He is scheduled to reappear in court Aug. 9.“We have not yet received a report requesting charges [about Captain],” prosecutor Kathryn Ford said Thursday in B.C. Provincial Court in Vancouver.The B.C. SPCA is still investigating the dog’s death.However, Ford understands the B.C. SPCA is currently working on the case.Whitlock’s dog was found July 18 in a Kitsilano Dumpster, wrapped in a bloody sheet, and died the following day after going into cardiac arrest. A search warrant filed by the B.C. SPCA and obtained by The Province revealed Captain’s injuries, included extensive hemorrhaging, swelling, puncture wounds, multiple cuts and profuse diarrhea.Police gained entry to Whitlock’s apartment on July 20 where they found a Swiss Army knife in the windowsill, a large link chain, a baseball bat and multiple piles of dog feces.The warrant application also included a copy of an email from a shaken resident, indicating at least one other person in the building suspected something was wrong. After Captain was discovered, the man emailed SPCA to share sounds he had heard coming from Whitlock’s apartment the night before the dog was found.“I heard a really loud fast banging. It sounded like something metal hitting wood, very fast and very hard, like someone was in a rage beating against something,” the resident said, noting the owner was often spotted walking the dog using a chain as both a collar and leash.“The sound of that beating will never leave my head,” he wrote.
