This story — which hasn’t been declared completely legitimate — is going around.
Published yesterday at the Examiner blog:
Tomorrow, a dog, name unknown, will be put to death at an overcrowded animal control in Jackson, Tenn., after his owner surrendered him there because he believes that his dog is “gay.”
According to the prior owner, the dog was seen “hunched over,” another male dog, therefore, in this owner’s mind, the dog must be gay.
The former owner apparently does not know that “hunched over, aka humping behavior” is typically a sign of dominance in dogs, rather than something to signify a dog’s sexual orientation.
I wonder if gay dogs are an abomination or something of lesser, pejorative value.
Seen at JMG.
