Re: Re: RC:

I am certain that mental illness is a reality in the animal world and that
these scenarios are evidence of it.  TTouch and Lyons and horse whispering
is all well and good with a "sane" horse or even a horse that just has a
bad attitude to begin with... but one who will strike without provocation
should be put down...personally, butchering would be a toughie for me so
I'd probably have a hole dug and simply bury him.  This thread is helping
me make a very serious decision about a dog we have  showing aggressive
tendencies....keep discussing!!!
