WFMZ.com A Florida father said he was forced to kill the family’s dog Friday after it bit off his son’s finger. The Malamute-wolf mix named Sassy was in a cage when 11-year-old Fernando Brignoni stuck his hand through the bars to pet the animal, according to the Bradenton Herald. That’s when the dog bit Fernando, biting off his pinky and injuring his arm, according to the Tampa Tribune. Fernando’s father, Luis Brignoni, heard his son screaming. Fernando’s brother couldn’t get the dog to let go by hitting him with a stick, so Brignoni grabbed his gun, according to the Bradenton Herald. “I said, ‘I’ve got to go find the finger,'” Brignoni told the Herald. “I got my gun and I popped him.” Brignoni then cut open the dog. He was able to retrieve the finger, but doctors couldn’t reattach it, according to the Herald.
Hey everyone on earth, I have an idea, how about we stop keeping half-dog half-wolves as pets? It always ends in disaster. The first thing I thought when I read the article was “What a sad story, I wonder what breed of dog it was, a Rottweiler? Pit Bull?” Nope it was worse than I ever imagined, its a half-dog half-monster, and inevitably the monster half eventually took over and ripped a kid’s finger off. No shit this happened. Look at the creature in the picture above, it looks like it should be ripping the throat out of an elk on the Alaskan tundra, not in a cage in some humid Florida backyard. That animal was probably miserable living in Florida, constantly sweating its ass off in a cage dreaming of chasing rabbits in the arctic, it’s wolf instincts had to take over eventually.
People need to stop buying dogs that are half wolf because it sounds badass, the wild instincts are still in there, and eventually a kid is going to lose a finger or worse. It’s just a matter of time.
And of course there is animal rights backlash on this story. Those people need to shut up, the dad did the right thing by shooting the dog, slicing it open and trying to retrieve the finger. If there is any chance doctors can reattach your son’s finger, you have to do whatever it takes, including shooting and gutting the family wolf. No brainer. If there is any argument from the animal rights assholes here, it’s that a wolf or any other cold weather animal should not be kept as a pet around children in a state where it is constantly 90 degrees and humid, either the animal dies or someone else gets killed by an agitated animal.
