We have Indian Villages all over Alaska. Wife and I taught at this one village (common practice everywhere though) that they never spayed the dogs and the dogs continuously had litter after litter. When the puppies were about 4 months, they were all killed just in time for another litter it seemed. When I asked the Indians why they didn't just spay the females; they answered "What would the kids play with then?" Indians saw the purpose of puppies on this earth was to amuse the kids. Perfectly normal and accepted in their world view.

Packs of dogs running around the village was to keep the bears from strolling down the village road; which was quite common come spring. I saw the dogs kill and eat each other and when I started throwing out lunch scraps to the dogs, I was told to stop. They wanted starving dogs, made good bear chasers the Indians claimed.

It all sounded different to me, but who am I to judge their way of doing things. The left should do the same.

who are you to judge?

That is plain stupid.

What they are doing may be “the way they have always done it” or some such putrid garbage, but it is wrong.

Who are you to judge if someone wants to kill you? Or abort your baby? Where you gonna draw the line genius.

The show about the people living along the Yukon on The Discovery channel covered the subject of dog euthanasia a few weeks ago.

It was a simple matter of catching enough salmon to feed the dogs through the winter or eliminating some dogs. Just letting the dogs starve would have been the cruelest act of all.

It’s all relative, ain’t it?
