    RI man charged with operating on his own dog - Boston.com

    I'm curious as to what E.J Finocchio wanted Mr. MacQuattie to do. Leave it as is and just say "Ah, fuck it"? :eusa_eh:

    Your thoughts on USMB? Should people be allowed to do these sort of things?

    At least people don't think that we're Long Island anymore. It's funny too since Quahog is based off the city where I live.

    I better watch out. I'm from Rhode Island, and last year I had to pull out one of my cat's fangs. Poor thing was suffering and I didn't have the money to hire a vet. He is doing fine now.

    The price of a vet in the state at least is ridiculous.

    Never mind the fact they have the people over a barrel.

    Interesting discussion. My mind goes to a bigger question.

    Are you all saying that cruelty to animals depends on your intent? And if your intent is good it's irrelevant what pain and suffering the animal undergoes?

    Well that's what I'm asking people including yourself. I'm not saying anything really, other then it shouldn't of had to come to this point.

    I would say that intent should be considered. Would anyone consider it cruel if the dog was close to death and suffering and the owner decides to take it out in the woods and shoot it?

    Well, in order to answer that question, we should probably start with what the definition of cruel is:


    Now that the definition is clearly stated, I just have to ask two questions. How can you have a disposition to inflict pain or be devoid of humane feelings without intent? If your intent is good, how can you be devoid of humane feelings?
