OMG poor baby was stuck on a ledge for 7 days, thank goodness she's home now!

ROAM really did some amazing work with this rescue. I am so happy there was a good ending. The only thing more I would've wanted from this story is seeing the pup in warm jam jams, getting fed and watered by the fire.

What amazing people. So happy they were able to save her.

Why would you reunite and animal with a clearly negligent family?


clazaa t1_iz5ow5p wrote

Did you read the article? The dog chased some animal from their yard and ended up lost. It's not like the owners threw this dog out into the wild and didn't care about it.

So what part of this is specifically negligent? You keep spouting this but haven't explained your reasoning and its pretty clear the rest if us are not seeing it the way you do.

A legal argument is not a moral one. No one ever appeals to the law in these kinds of conversations, that’s just leading to an easy debunking. Just take India’s reverence for cows, they’re considered much more important than human lives in nearly every sense.

Also that’s not how criminal negligence works, I’m in no place of responsibility to risk my life to save yours UNLESS I’m registered as an EMT or nurse or something and take that legal responsibility on as my own. You sound like a high schooler that took one Gov class

She just got loose from their own yard, sounds like they just live near the trails, Vancouver Island is a pretty rural area. I've had that happen, it's an awful feeling, my indoor cat managed to pop out the screen of a window and go on an adventure. He was only gone for a few hours, but still felt awful not knowing where he was.

Dude….. that’s the law in nearly every English speaking country, which I’m assuming by your proper use of English you are from, but maybe I’m wrong.

It’s called “duty to rescue”, nobody has the legal responsibility to save anyone else if it involves endangering themselves. And it should absolutely stay that way, you’re insane if you think otherwise.

Sounds like a reddit poster has yet again failed to read the article beyond the headline.

This is where my heart swelled like the grinch on Christmas eve day.


No_Instruction2123 t1_iz62hs2 wrote

I have no obligation to risk my life in a fire to save my neighbors. If I choose to save my cats I’m well within my right. That’s the lawful argument which you should be fully aware of based on your previous statements. Also I’m 100% sure most people would choose their pets over a near stranger anyway, but believe what you like

>idk why you got upset and decided to get involved

Nice projection, keep coping kid :)


BostonBrandToots t1_iz69uuz wrote

Yes. They should have shot a kid for falling into a pen ... fucking what?

Value of something's life is entirely in the eye of the beholder. No getting around the fact that there are people who value the lives of their dogs over complete people strangers. And you know what, they aren't wrong to do so.


szai t1_iz6ffm5 wrote

Yeah I'll admit I can be pretty militant on the "Don't let your animals roam outdoors unsupervised" front but sometimes accidents happen. Glad the dog was ok. And the cat too!

7 days? Damn, must've been a tall cliff.


yesmilady t1_iz6wo2v wrote

My dog falling off a cliff is one of my worst nightmares. I don't frequent cliffs, but it's still something I am awfully scared of.


RustyPickles t1_iz6zp8d wrote

Always use a leash near cliffs! I know my dog is clumsy, so I don’t take any chances with him accidentally stumbling off a ledge. (Obviously doesn’t apply to escapees like in the article).

I know some wonderful people who volunteer with ROAM and we're lucky they're out there doing this work. It doesn't always end well, but they sure work hard to find resolution. I think I'm overdue to donate to them this year, and just hope I never need their services.

Our elderley cat went missing. She had lost her "Miow". I was 16 and put notes through all the neighbours doors asking them to check sheds and garages. She came home after 3 days

Catsrules t1_iz7axqg wrote

I was thinking the same thing. Google saids Dog can go without water for about 3 days same time as humans. It was always my understanding that 3 days might be able to be extended under ideal conditions but not by much. 7 Days really doesn't seem likely.

I have to think the dog ate snow or had access to a small source of water. Maybe being on a cliff you would have a small water run off as the snow melted during the day?
