GOM

Dead dogs on interislander

14 posts in this topic

I see  5 dogs found in various states of distress causinfg some to be euthanised. Doesn't sound like greyhounds but does go to show just how carefully using  this  form of transport must be treated.

Yeh, we learned that recently GOM when 'Team McInerney' managed to kill some dogs, (let's hope it's not them again!) that story escaped with less Media/Police/SPCA attention than this latest case...why? Ironically because the McInerney's where even more negligent and cruel, it wasn't dealt with straight after the ferry sailing, the poor dogs lay dead in the back of the van all the way back to Darfield! But at least that gave the Mcinerney's more time to get it away from the attention of the Media/Police/SPCA.

We have made the trip on several occassions and I must admit took no measures other than inquire from the operators if exhaust fumes could be a hazard. I suppose we were reasurred by the fact that many dogs had travelled across with no incidents (at that stage).

Mind you we had the dogs out of the vehicle immediately before and after the crossing as I am sure most others do. I don't think there is any great risk in the crossing if common sense is used.

I have travelled dogs between islands many times.....have found interislander staff very accommodating....on hot days i ask to be on the open deck and on cold and wet days i  ask to be under cover...never have i been refused.....human era is a bad thing and we are ultimately responsible for our dogs welfare.....ive always when travelling have a motto.......rather have a cold dog than a dead dog......
