Their dog disturbs neighbors by barking, justice makes an absolutely horrible decision
An act of extreme cruelty
Justice sometimes makes very surprising decisions. Karen Szewc and John Updegraff have Mastiff dogs to protect their sheep from predators that could attack them. Dogs obviously a bit noisy and with a tendency to bark all day . What their neighbors who have decided to complain do not stand.
After four days of trial in 2015, Karen Szewc and John Updegraff were sentenced by the Oregon Court to pay $ 238,000 to their neighbors to compensate them for the inconvenience.
Except that this was obviously not enough. After living 20 years with incessant barking, the neighbors absolutely want the problem to be solved once and for all. And the money will not solve the noise problem. Because the neighbors can not stand anymore, it's always having to turn up the TV to be able to watch their programs.
To solve the problem, the dogs will have to a devolution . Concretely, this means that part of the dog's vocal cords are removed to reduce barking and make them more serious, and therefore less troublesome for the human ear. To do this, an incision is made directly in the larynx.
A really cruel decision for dogs that bark to communicate. In France, devolution is prohibited.
