Two dogs locked in Cadillac in front of Peking Buffet

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, animal abuse.

Two dogs are locked inside a Cadillac Escalade in front of the Peking Buffet at 8222 Lewiston Road in the Town of Batavia, which is in the same plaza as BJ's Wholesale Club. A caller is concerned for the canines' welfare and a Sheriff's deputy is responding.

I know I'm gonna get alot of negative votes on this but.... Sometimes you gotta lighten thing up before you go Crazy.

I read this radio call that was posted and the first thought that popped into my head was they were pre-cooking tonights special. Thats all just struck me as a lil funny.

People need to mind there own gd business. The "caller" has no way to know if the dogs have been there five hours or 5 min.
The police have better things to do then check on dogs.

Well Chris, If the car was running with the AC blasting then I would agree with your post. If this is NOT the case, then the "caller" should be hailed as a hero, the owners of the dog should be made to wear the heaviest fur jackets known to man, thrown in the car and be made to bake.

Even if you take the "low" end of your time comparison (5 mins) for an animal IF there was no AC, with the heat and humidity we have been dealing with lately is practically a death sentence.

The police have better things to do? , like what, set up road blocks and harass law abiding citizens?
I parked my car at Tops yesterday for about 10 mins,when I returned I had to open all 4 doors to cool the inside down enough to get in and fire up the ac.

Kyle: Sorry. They only use cat meat.

Christopher: Do you have a clue as to how fast the temperature rises inside a closed up car with 2 dogs panting inside? Educate yourself so you don't look like such a fool.

Maybe it was YOUR car, that's why you're angry?

Laws should be stricter and people found to lock their animals in parked cars in the heat need to be fined and marks put on their license.

Maybe stupid people should not be allowed to own pets, license them instead of the dogs.
I realize people like to take their dogs places, but do it safely, put them in a dog crate. I can't tell you how many times I've seen dogs jumping on the driver while they are driving, accidents take only a split second, having a dog climbing around the front seat is a distraction.
True story, my boston terrier was in the front seat while we ran in a Sugar Creek, the
dog stepped on the power button for the window and had his head stuck when the window came up,luckily we were on our way out when this happened, learned a couple of lessons, never leave your vehicle running, and never leave your pets unattended in the car.

If the vehicle is running with the AC on, the dogs aren't in any danger, especially if the windows are cracked for fresh airflow. You can tell if the AC is running by looking for the tell-tale puddle of water under the car and by listening for the clutch on the AC compressor to pull in and out. Also, the dogs won't be panting as heavily if they're cool. They might still be panting because that's how a dog regulates temperature. The only place a dog can sweat from is their pads and feet.

Anne I hate to disagree with you but having spent a few months in Tapei w side trips to a couple of cities on the chinese mainland, I know for a fact that both are raised as a food source. Just like there are those here who have pet pigs and cows and chickens. Pets arent usually used for this purpose but sometimes if there is a famine it can happen. Its a cultural thing. But some cultural things can be very powerful psychologically. I went to a fine dining establishment in Taipei and my companion asked me if I wanted the menu translated. There were pictures so I declined, I told them I didnt want to know (mostly cause it makes me hesitate on new seafoods) But later they all asked me what I thought, 2 days later I was told what I had was dog. I was so sick that day I couldnt eat anything even though it was out of my system by then.

But seriously would you have an issue eating a ham sandwich? What if you had a pet pig?. My rational mind knows the difference but the culture I was raised has taboo's that overpowered my rational mind.

Anyway it still was a sick or bad joke. but kinda funny.

Heres a quick quote from Wikipedia Anne to correct your comment.

Dog meat refers to the flesh and other edible parts derived from dogs. Human consumption of dog meat has been recorded in many parts of the world, including ancient China, ancient Mexico, and ancient Rome.[2] Dog meat is consumed in a variety of countries such as Switzerland,[3] China,[4] Vietnam,[5] and South Korea.[6] Dog meat has also been used as survival food in times of war and/or other hardships.[7][8]

Today, some cultures[which?] view the consumption of dog meat to be a part of their traditional cuisine, while others consider consumption of dog to be inappropriate and offensive on both social and religious grounds. Especially with cultural globalization, greater international criticism (particularly from international animal organizations such as the World Society for the Protection of Animals) has been increasingly directed against dog meat consumption and the torture of dogs caged and farmed for their meat.[9] In response to criticisms, proponents of dog meat have argued that distinctions between livestock and pets is subjective, and that there is no difference with eating the meat of different animals.[10][11][12] Historical cultural records in China have, however, noted how Chinese variations on Buddhism have preached against the consumption of dog meat, which is held to be one of the five 'forbidden meats'. Eating dog is also forbidden under both Jewish dietary laws[13] and Islamic dietary laws.[14][15]

Kyle Couchman: I hear what you're saying about psychological taboos.

In the late '90s, I had a young friend, working at Pontillo's. She got married, and had spent the weekend at Niagara Falls (CA).
During a 'lull', she sat down at my booth and started telling me about the wedding, the reception and their weekend in NF. She mentioned that they had gone to a real nice restaurant while there.
I asked her what they had ordered, and she said that she had lamb.
This is pretty much how the conversation went:
"Lamb, huh? I've never had lamb. Did you like it?"

"Yeah. I'd never had it before, either, but it was delicious!!"

"I don't know - there's just something about eating a baby sheep - I don't know if I could do it."

"Whatd'ya mean a baby sheep?"

"Well, that's what a lamb is - a baby sheep!"

"Really!! I didn't know THAT! I thought it was just another kind of animal! I'm never gonna eat it again!!"

Yep. There are just some times I should probably just keep my mouth shut. Actually, there's (probably) A LOT of times I shouldn't open it, but, definitely SOME TIMES!!

The main point of this article was leaving dogs in hot cars, not a discussion on eating dog. Nowadays dog is rarely eaten and only in the very very poor areas of China and Korea. It is not cooked here in the USA at Chinese restaurants. The old time joke of ages is that you're eating cat meat here, thus my comment. Plus, I am well versed in the history of my breed, the Chow Chow, and home some were raised like cattle for meat. The straighter the rear stifle, the more tender the meat, the black Chows had better meat than the reds, plus there is a long history of other uses of the Chow, non food related.

Ann, I ate dog just last week. I told Mary it was venison, but it was actually road-kill coon hound. Nothing should ever go to waste IMO so I couldn't just leave mans best friend laying there. Mary stewed it in spaghetti sauce with onions, garlic, peppers and mushrooms. It was delicious and Mary still doesn't know it wasn't actually road-kill doe. I think all dead dogs should go to kitchens to help feed the homeless. Cats don't have much meat so they can be tossed into the garbage or into the compost pile.

As tasteless as Doug's post seems to be, it brings up a good point. Why isn't it acceptable to eat dog? Why do we eat cows but not horses? Is it illegal and, if so, why? Is there a reason other than that it is not culturally acceptable? And Doug, I hope for Mary's sake you are kidding. I'm thinking Mary is probably a saint.

Mary has a sense of humor a lot like mine. I'm wondering what we're actually eating half of the time

It is a cultural thing. People in India look at cows way different than I do.

Is it illegal to eat certain animals like cats, dogs and horses in the U.S.? Not that I would - I'm just wondering.

I'm just hoping the next time I post something on dogs locked in hot cars, which sadly is inevitable, this thread on 'cuisine' won't be rehashed.
