I believe there are big and small towns in the UK. LOL

Our AC will trap them but then they will probably be put to sleep. If they are deemed unadoptable that's it for those poor animals. I'd try and get the SPCA up here but I'm not sure how far they cover.

none of the uk would have a problem we dont seem to have any where near the problems with pets that the us and other countrys do.

Yeah animal control here very rarely does that also.

That's not what I hear from my friends that live in the UK and volunteer at shelters.

This article says that one dog is put down every hour in the UK. http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/an...00/3909553.stm

Pits have you ever read the story Savage Dog by J.L. Wolff? If you haven't i will send it to you.
It's the same here, Smkie. I suspect it's that way in most places.

They used to be very good here about coming if you had an animal in trouble, though. I found a blind, elderly Yorkie that had fallen down a storm drain once, and they came immediately and helped me get her out. They were even nice enough to tell the owner who found her dog so she could let me know the poor little mite had gotten home safely.

it is not their fault..just so much money and people to go around for a mamoth problem..just like our health care system and child support collections...there are just too many people and not enough funds.

I don't feel quite so sympathetically toward all of them, Smkie. In one of the nearby counties here, an animal control officer got bitten by a chow mix that was being picked up next to a fenced in school playground. This idiot managed to get bitten even using the slip collar on the long handle. Unable to handle ONE medium sized dog, this "trained professional" - their words, not mine - called the police for backup. The police came and summarily shot the dog in front of that playground full of young children at recess!

Talk about bad judgement!
