How do get rid of an unwanted dog in Texas: shoot it on Facebook
A woman from Troupe, Texas, asked her Facebook friends:
“I need someone to come shoot my dog, nobody here has the heart to do it! We will provide the gun!”
Mad, indeed. What Texan doesn’t own a gun? Like you, we too smell something stinky, and it’s not the 3-year-old Saint Bernard/English bulldog mix named Cinnamon.
Nicholas Pet Haven of Tyler, Texas, took the bait. He called Troup PD. They called the Smith County Animal Control. Between them you’d think they had loads guns. But they didn’t shoot the dog. They saved the dog that kept getting in the garbage.
“It’s devastating,” said animal shelter coordinator Nanette Moss. “I work with these dogs every day. They are my life, and when she walked through my door it just broke my heart. She’s a sweet dog and how can somebody shoot a sweet dog?”
Well, no-one. No-one shot the dog. But the woman got rid of one to a good home.
