Peace on Earth and goodwill to all mankind. But facsimiles of human life that perpetrate this do not need our help, do not deserve our help.
Two weeks later Jensz received another call. Local dog fighters had cut off [Afghan mutt]Wylie’s ears and had scalped him in the process, before using the same homemade knife to cut his muzzle wide open from his nose to under his eye. He was patched up again by Jensz and a team of Australian Defence Force doctors only to return from his perilous forays outside the base with new injuries — a stab wound to the chest and a savagely docked tail.

Then, horrifically, one day he limped back to the camp after Kandahar locals — many of whom despise dogs only marginally less than they do coalition soldiers — had tried to sever his penis.

Depressing indeed.

Mary Boyce picked up on the pitiable situation of dogs in Muslim countries a long while back. Dogs could actually sense that they were in the presence of Muslims, and behave accordingly- mostly in a cringing manner.

More recently, in Iraq, it was the same situation. Stray dogs went over to allied troops simply to get what dogs want - a re-assuring hand from who they consider as their friends and masters. A dog's DNA is hard wired to be friendly to humans - he cannot behave in any other way. So it must be hell for a dog to be in a Muslim country.

On related issue of willful cruelty to animals - What is the situation re Halal meat in Netherlands? Are supermarkets enforcing the ban? Can halal meat be imported?

Here in Sweden we see periodical surges with cruelty against animals. Most popular are hedgehogs, probably because they are easy to catch. They use them as footballs or put them in plastic bags and burn them alive. If there is a park with a pond, mallards are also targeted and sometimes swans even. It's not often I read or hear about dogs but sometimes cats are also targeted. Probably because they are used to humans and can easily be caught as well. I can't prove it is mussies behind it but this kind of behaviour was very uncommon when I grew up and has only surged yhe last 10-15 years or so. So you make up tour minds yourselves about it, if it is crazy swedes or if it is koranimals behind it. These people completely lack all forms of empathy towards other living beings.
