what's the weirdest unusual thing you saw or experienced the past year?

 

I'm not sure if this qualifies as the weirdest but it is fresh in my mind:  Dead dogs on the beach.

 

There is a stretch of beach that I walk along a few times a week and in the past year there have been more dead dogs than I can count.  Shall we say more than 10 and less than 50.

 

These are dogs who have been put in bags with a rock added and thrown into the ocean to drown, or sometimes just a rope around their necks with a rock at the end of the rope, or sometimes just thrown in alive or dead and abandoned in the water until they die.

 

I have walked a lot of sections of beach in my time here and this is the one section where all the dead dogs seem to wash up.  I don't know why they wash up there and I don't know why people think their dogs should be thrown into the ocean and I do not know why people are so stupid as to not realize that the tide will wash the dogs ashore.

 

I wonder who is doing this as I have a rock and a rope for them  :t07051:

Now THIS is something that would never happen in China!  :lol:

Not sure if it is the weirdest either but since you mention dogs on the beach... at least this lady liked her dog.

 

I was at the beach one day and saw a lady digging a hole.  At first I thought she was starting to burn trash, but the hole quickly got too big for that.  Her dog was quietly sleeping next to her.   Yeah... sleeping... at first glance I thought it was sleeping.  She finishes digging the hole and proceeds to cram the dog into it.  The hole was too small, too shallow, and the dog was a bit stiff.  It did go as well as she planned.  Eventually she got the dog buried in an extremely shallow grave on a busy beach - I am waiting to see if the dog makes an appearance soon... I have seen a few small animal skulls on the beach and now I think I know why.

 

In retrospect I would say it was better than a rock & a string, though.   :tiphat:

It occurs to me that some of the dogs I see may have been buried in shallow graves at one time.  The tide moves a LOT of sand where I walk and it would be easy to picture something like that happening.  Thanks for the insight.

Did any of the dogs have a tag around their neck with the name 'Lucky' if so, it is mine, I have been looking  for him for weeks!

The more stuff I see washed up on the shore, the more I stay away from swimming in the ocean. But its a big ocean and I see at least one foreigner swimming in that area every day.  I wonder if he knows about the dead dogs, jellyfish, and poisonous sea urchins.  Probably not as ignorance is bliss  :cheersty:
