    Default What's happening in Perth??

    Hi all,

    I heard on the news tonight, can't even look at the article, that in Hamersley in Perth a pet Sharpei has been found brutally slain by his 9 year old owner, that poor little love will probably never get over the shock of finding his beloved pet in that state, breaks my heart...

    Between murders and bashings of innocent people in the wrong place at the wrong time resulting in coma/death and terrible animal cruelty stories, it makes me wonder what has happened to sleepy old Perth... I don't like looking at the news at the best of times, it's always doom and gloom, but Perth is like sin city in recent times, is it something in our water???

    I always thought Perth was a beautiful city, having visited a couple of times, but that poor little fella, finding his dog brutally killed. How can people be so cruel? I truly wonder how some people can sleep at night!!!

    Yes Perth has always been a great place to live, but now I find myself locking the car doors as soon as I get in the car, making sure all doors are locked at home and we never go out into the city after dark but just as much danger lurks in daylight!!

    I think drugs have a lot to do with it, lots of "ice" addicts very desperate to get their hands on money for their next fix or having psychotic episodes, lots of fried brains around the place...

    It could be worse. Perth could be famous for bizarre and brutal serial killings.

    Ice is a really bad drug, completely stuffs people's brains and makes them into insane and violent maniacs. Ambulance paramedics and emergency workers get it a lot.

    And when I first read your comment, I thought the 9yo had killed the dog. "found by" is not the same as "slain by".

    I lock my dog in the house when I go out.

    The meter reader this morning was very lucky I happened to see him next door checking their meter in the back yard so I was able to catch evil hound before he got to my house (30 second warning). She does say she would eat them. One time a Meter reader brazenly ignored her barking at him all the way to the meter and back - but she's getting a bit more assertive - and she's nipped people who ignore her and keep moving. Fortunately one was my brother and she only got his trousers, and the other - she actually missed making contact cos I had hold of her.

    I wish they'd knock first to make sure she's secure.

    When I was young living with my family and had foxtel, I remember a program about Ice. I remember it mostly because there was one scene with a police dog that literally scarred me for life. A man was hospitalised, he had been shot. But he went mental, attacked the doctors and escaped. He was running through the carpark and there was a k9unit onsite. He was throwing things around, half dressed, and literally acting like the hulk. The police officer and GSD approached him and told him to lie down, but he was just yelling and not responding. He charged at the officer and he released his dog, who attacked the guy - remember this guy had already been shot in the shoulder. The dog went initially for his wrist, bit him and tried to hold him but could not, he just kept moving even though his wrist was bleeding. The dog then went for his leg, and it was a different sort of bite, he bit and shook and pulled either chunks off his pants or maybe his leg itself. The guy still didn't stop, even though he was now on the ground. I don't really remember what happened after that, but it scared me off ice for life - I always associated it with the great pain of being eaten by a GSD lol.

    GSD are trained to bite the arm - but some learn that breaking an ankle is much more effective when it comes to slowing the target down.

    I think I'd still prefer trained dog bite to tazar...

    My daughter came in tonight after watching a show on Austar about drug trafficing over the mexican, Us border and what they find.
    They stopped a truck that was found to be transporting purebred puppies, labs beagles etc, they inspected them found evidence of crude surgery and found there stomachs pack with drugs.

    Ice seems to be getting into everywhere. It seems everyone you hear of now around my town is either on ice or crack. Not nice, after seeing things on TV you couldnt pay me to take it. Not worth it!

    With the increase in ice/hard drug use to we have had an increase in crime. So many business are getting broken into. Sometimes a few times a month. Cars/bikes getting stolen, houses burgled. The local comm bank was held up last week. It's just crazy! I dont think I will ever live anywhere that I will feel safe. If its not worrying about the dogs getting stolen, it's worrying the house will get broken into. Lol and I live in a pretty decent suburb too!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
