You think a catch pole is bad? This is what they do in India

Unbelievable - In sections of India they use these things called "iron tongs" - I found this video through my google alert for "dog friendly" if you can believe it - the alert was for an article about the city Ahmedabad and it's efforts to appear more dog friendly and they're thinking about starting to use devices other than these "iron tongs" to catch their stray dogs. This video is unbelievable - so much for India having any kind of reverence for animals... (which leads me to another post about Mahatma Gandhi which I've been meaning to make for a long time, which I think I'll finally make tonight because of this horrific video)


  1. I know this comment is too early for the ghandi post but I couldn't resist :)

    Penn and Teller did a little expose on ghandi in their show Bullshit.

    Watch it here -

  2. Oh Joan, the things we humans do to our fellow animals.

    You don't have to go outside Canada to find cruelty.

    Just visit a slaughterhouse.

    Sigh ...


  3. I think I'm going to have nightmares about the screams of that poor dog. How horrible.

  4. I know, that dog's reaction is just haunting.
