These's days animals are more important than humans. DOG IN DANGER? HELP IT! HUMAN DEAD? oh well, happens all the time.....

Too bad the dog wasn't a human, cause if it was, no one would care.

I don't blame him. Your response is stupid. As if, every person in the world goes to army cadet at age 14 and does all that crap. Then you are comparing a real life situation verses something that is monitored. There are a lot of weak 19 year old kids that can barley life 50 pounds and how the hell do you even get a pack sack to fit a 114pd dog? The kid was frightened, how the hell would he have lifted his dog? At least, with human beings, there is a way, there are only so many ways you can carry a dog.

The only thing in question is that, why didn't he go back for the dog afterwards? Could it be that, like many teens now, that are afraid of getting into trouble? It's not like back then, when kids are men at the age of 16-17. In this generation, many people don't know what the hell they are doing...ever. That's why they're so many spoiled kids these days.

Edit - Actually they did contact the Sheriff.

The dog owner called a friend who contacted the County Sheriff's Office but was told the region was too dangerous and crews don't rescue animals.

You make a post about how tough you were at 14. I posted that image as a joke. I agree that the guy is an idiot and unfit to own pets. Then, you get your panties in a knot and tell me to put my finger in an electrical socket. What a well-rounded, cognoscente argument that is. You soundly refuted my position of "Guy says something dumb on internet, post corresponding picture."

I did more in army cadets at 14. We all had our ruck sacks and then we had to take one of our officers down on a stretcher, and no, the officer wasn't injured, it was just part of the drill. In the snow. After an 8 hour hike. Most of us could too. Much of it is mind over matter. Thee guy in the article sounds like he is reaching for excuses.

- you do not have an efficient way of carrying said additional weight


Its really not mind over matter. Its simple logistics.
And no, I wouldn't have questioned whether your officer was hurt... but thanks for clarifying!

Lol I appreciate your attempt to twist my words around into me trying to make myself sound like the hulk at 14, as this is the internet and trolling is a valuable skill. However, all I was doing was pointing out that most of us, as teenagers, could've made a better attempt at saving his so-called 'best friend' instead of leaving the dog up there to die. Now what really confuses me is that you were supposed to have stuck a finger in your electrical socket by now, so why are you still responding?

I agree, that's why I said he is unfit to own a dog. You're supposed to have untangled your panties by now, so why are you still responding?

If I thought my dog was dead like this guy explains, I'd put it out of it's misery rather than just leave it there -- owner's excuses are a bit suspicious. Sure it's just an animal but considering the reliance upon the owner the dog has for it's survival, and the mindset of the dog, being that dog thinks of it's owner as family, just from a subjective viewpoint of mine on the latter part there, it would be like leaving family out there. He took the dog out there, guy should grow a pair of balls, an ounce of responsibility, and figure out a way to get it back home or end it's life instead of leaving it to suffer.

As for the death threats, I wish many terrible things upon those animal rights activist nuts.

CAPSLOCK's meme are garbage and Magikal is waaay to easy to troll. Relax guys.

Man's a coward.
1st mistake: Taking the dog up there.
2nd mistake: Leaving the dog up there.

For those people arguing that a human life is more valuable than a dog's, you're right. But the human (in most cases) would go up there because they wanted to. The dog was taken there. It didn't have a choice.

The sad part is that when the dog sees the coward again, it'll still treat him like his best friend.

I'd have no problem if the story was more along the lines of he tried to being the dog back but failed. Instead he simply refused to try.

Why would you even take your dog up there?

Bright side of the story is that the dogs okay and doesn't have to live with his clown anymore.

Lol did you read the article? He didn't do jack squat for the dog. He basically said " **** it. Dog is on it's own" He didn't go back and attempt to find the dog, he didn't call the SPCA, park ranger or any other group that might've been able to help.

Leaving the dog up there I perfectly understand. Carry a 114 pd dog down slippery talus that doesn't want to be carried is not doable.

Not going back though...... that's just bizarre. It's not that hard to organize a group of people who would go get it. A buddy I know took his dog out hiking up by pemberton, dog got injured and he couldn't carry it back. He left the dog, got to an area where he had phone access, called, tweeted, facebooked and within an hour a large group of us were heading up there to get it out. It wouldn't have been hard at all to get it out if he had tried even a little. Heck, I've even heard stories of SAR picking injured dogs up.

Exactly.

Leaving the dog up there temporarily, while you go retrieve some help = fine. Sensible and there's a plan of action.

Leaving the dog up there period. With no intention of going back and then just carrying on with your life. Despicable. Completely unacceptable. Cowardly. Irresponsible. Heartless. Etc.

But really, the solution is to not take a dog on treacherous hikes to begin with. Dogs don't get a say in whether they want to go or not, so to abandon them is disgusting and unforgivable. Criminal in my mind.

Dogs don't always do so great on uneven, rocky surfaces (especially if it rains or they're wet/slippery). They tend to get overly excited, move too quickly and can injure themselves fairly easily (which is why I never took my dog across the rocks/logs at Garry Point to access the water). Dogs end up with broken legs this way and it's up to the owners to make responsible decisions.

If you can't carry a 100+ lb dog back down from a hike, that needs to be thought about before taking one at all. Idiots don't think these things through first.

So much moral outrage in this thread. The guy may have been an idiot for taking the dog with him, but the people sending him death threats are even dumber.

1) The only mistake the guy did was wanting to take his dog with him on a hiking trip that proved to be too difficult. People take their dogs hiking all the time, it was just a dumb mistake.
2) He carried the dog for as long as he could.
3) Once he got to the bottom he got help as fast as he could.
4) He paid all the vet bills.
5) The dog was totally fine.

Ok he made a mistake, what should he have done after? Stayed up there with the dog so they could die together? Just left the dog to die and not told anyone so he wouldn't receive all the bad press? I don't want to live in a society where if you make a mistake but then try face the consequences and bring it to a good end, you receive death threats. All that does is to encourage people to not even come forward with the mistake (in this case, to just leave the dog to die). Stop posting angry messages in this thread and go donate $10 to the SPCA if you really give a damn.
