Train avoids hitting puppy tied to Calif. track

Officials say a 78-year-old man tied a puppy to train tracks in the California desert, and an engineer had to use emergency brakes to keep from crushing it.

Riverside County animal control said in a statement Tuesday that Banjo, a 10-month-old poodle-terrier mix, is fine and up for adoption.

The train was near Mecca on April 2 when the engineer saw a man walking away from the tracks and stopped.

Union Pacific Special Agent Sal Pina responded and called the scene "one of the worst things I've seen."

Pina untied Banjo and detained the man, who said his family didn't want the dog and didn't know what to do.

Pina says he couldn't pursue charges against the unidentified man because he appeared confused and didn't understand what he'd done.

How about we tie him to the tracks, 'cause we don't know what to do with him?

There are many places to take unwanted animals. Railroad tracks isn't one of them.

Would anyone be upset if we threw this man into a volcano?

what a disgusting piece of ****

There are shelters all over that take animals people don't want. That's what they're there for.

But, it sounds like possibly this guy had some mental issues

Only if there is no lava bubbling up.

And the first thought that pops into your head is to drive into a desert and tie it to train tracks?

Someone's been watching too many Dudley Do-Right reruns.

They didn't want the dog.

They didn't know what to do.

So...they tied it to a train track.














What the ****?


These guys are brilliant. Let's tie them to a train track.

Mental issues? but still had the presence of mind to carry out the plan.
