can people stop trying to compare species! It is simply human nature to have a "ranking" of species. For thousands of years we have valued dogs and THAT is why MOST humans find events like this simply horrific

Noone has made a credible argument for why a dog's life is more important than another animal, say a snake beyond "its mans best friend"... which is a emotive argument on the same level as "OH BUT IT WAS SOOO CUTE". You cant make moral decisions based on how cute an animal is.

Is he just trying to get negative rep?
Sorry; Im used to a higher level of debate than this bs of unsupported emotive arguments and shrieking.

That may be an explanation of human nature (and an accurate one) but it doesnt explain why the LAW should treat this crime differently.

They may not be as important but they are still important, but i agree with the second party which is why i asked what people's reactions would be if it was a snake instead of a dog.

cos police shouldnt waste time on a dog murder while these plenty of unsolved human murder cases
I'd rather they investigate this than shoplifting though, especially as the dog was set alight so there's arson too, and potentially endangering the lives of others nearby.

Why should that matter? Also a pig has more similarity to humans than a dog does and we allow a LOT worse treatment of pigs.

A fly has a life span of 20 days (dont ask me how i know that!) They have NO ability to interact with each other or communicate. Dogs on the other hand understand social structure and obligations, and are capable of interacting with other members of the pack.

As anyone, beyond personal opinion/emotive argument actually made a proper argument that Human life is more important than that of another animal? or that all life should be treated with the same basic rights? Because if they have I have missed those posts.

If your side of the argument or level of opposing debate is not to your level, then raise the stakes as it were and list your reasons for your argument. If no one as given enough viable reasons why one is better or less wrong than the other then you shouldn't expect any further debate to go past things like "I think your wrong" "I think I am Right" posts.

I was going to mention how pigs get slaughtered, just as most other animals are, there are more humane ways of doing it, but to some people money is more important.

Kill the kids, tbh. Little ****ing brats.

Let's say how god-like they feel when we cut off their balls and feed it to the dog's litter.

Again, please don't slip into fantasy: the children have not yet been shown to be guilty, and even if they did do it - and that is an important 'if' - the motive behind their actions is unclear. Why not wait for sufficient information before attacking them? You would hope for the same courtesy if for some reason you found yourself in their position.
Was I attacking them? I digressed from the children themselves. But the fact is, there is an underlying issue. Such awful events occur - Jim Bolger for instance. The killers are now released - and no one knows where they are.
