    As I said.
    Theres a population of 150 people. All farmers.
    Farmers around here don't bother 'dobbing' in other farmers.
    Its happens everywhere.
    I think its more uncommon for dogs to be treated the way my grandfather treats them.
    We drive through someone property to get to my grandpas. There are about 12 unbroken horses between the ages of yearlings and 6 years old. One of them had a broken ankle.
    And apprently, the owner already knew. It couldn't even stand up!
    You see some truly horrible things out here.
    Which brings us back to the way some farmers treat their livestock.

    awww this is shocking for me to hear, we live in rural Meander , Tas. population is prob the same, all farmers round here. good ones i believe, as far as i know. 1 school. 1 shop.

    We live on a property owned by dads boss, he works on their dairy farm milking cows. boss has 2 kelpies and a dalmation they are very good to their dogs!.

    AND we have 2 border collies and 2 small house dogs,
    along with 3 PET sheep, chickens , horse, cats. We love our working dogs so much and take care of them .x
    i cant believe anyone could do anything so cruel to an animal, where theres the will theres the way ....

    i dunno this is just shocking, =(

    I feel for your Myf

    Some years ago a farmer offered me money for one of my purebred show kelpies. He was a tall dog. A bit too tall for the show ring.

    I refused the large sum of money he offered without even looking at his property because the reason he wanted him was to put some leg into bloodlines.

    But what would he have done with him 6-12 month down the track. A farmer has no need of an average worker.

    I waited and found an agility home for him.

    I'm not saying all farmers are like that.

    If you know about something bad, and you do nothing about it it's about the same as if you participate in it. Sorry, but I see it that way

    Unfortunately in a small farming town this attitude can lead to victimisation of the person doing the reporting. Along with alienation and worst case scenario physical abuse. It can lead to the animals being abused and hurt as a means of revenge.

    While I agree with your views entirely for a suburban situation, in a rural location those same views may get you or your own animals killed. It is a completely different world from where you live - and I mean that literally. Life is harder but simpler. If aussiemyf is the only one to have visited since the puppies have died then it would not be hard to work out who did the reporting.

    Yeah, I know. Maybe not report straight away. In two-three weeks, so it's not that suspicious. I'm sure nothing will change over there (improvement).

    There are more humane ways of killing newborns if they really must kill them. What an *expletive*

    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
