尻尾をフリフリ…飼い主に置き去りにされたワンコの姿に胸が痛む
Facebook/I Paw'd It Forward

ペットは、一生をかけて飼い主に寄り添ってくれるかけがえのない家族の一員だ。彼らを家に招き入れた飼い主には、大切にケアをして、愛情を注ぐ義務がある。多くの飼い主は、義務とは思わず、当たり前のことだと思っているはずだ。

 

しかし、そんな当たり前のことができない飼い主もいる。

 

しっぽを振りながら飼い主が去るのを見送る犬

 

8月7日、アメリカ・ワシントン州で活動する動物愛護団体「I Paw’d It Forward」は、1本の動画を投稿した。

 

それがこちらだ。

人気のない道に車を止め、1匹のラブラドールレトリーバーを降ろす女性。犬にリードらしきものはついていないが、女性を信頼しているようで、森に向かって女性が歩き出すと、しっぽを振ってついて行った。森の中から一人で出てきた女性は、走って車に向かう。

 

その後、置き去りにされた犬の様子がこちらだ。

 

The AfterMath

Before you start reading, I would like to update everyone on the status of this case. We believe we have identified the owner. Through the incredible tips we have received, we are pretty confident we have identified her. We have provided her information to Law Enforcement/Animal Control and they will be following up on this. We will not be sharing her information at this time.Thank you to EVERYONE one that called in tips, that tried to make out the plate, that spent hours reviewing the video to put things together. Thank you to Alyssa and Brandon for not standing by and letting this play out. Thank you to them for stepping up for this pup, for being his voice. We need more people in this world like you. <3We cannot provide additional details, yet. We need to let the enforcement agencies do their job. Please don't be involved in muddying the waters. Let us let them work. <3To that end, I would like to take a moment to use this entire ordeal as a learning experience and hopefully, in sharing this video, give others pause before contemplating abandoning your animal.****The white car is NOT who dumped the dog. It is the car that came in just after the Dog abandoner pulled away.*********THIS. This is what a dog that has just been abandoned looks like. They are still here. They are still waiting. They are still searching for you to return. They are confused. They do not understand why the humans they devoted their lives to, have disappeared. Most of the time, we don't catch them right after they are left. Most of them never make it home. We do our best to recover as many as we can, but we know we are just a small blip on the grand scheme of it. There is no reason to do this. None. There are a bunch of excuses, but no reasons. There are a whole slew of options available if you decide your dog is not for you, or your life has changed, or whatever you have convinced yourself is what you need. Here is what I would ask of you: Instead of dumping your dog somewhere, offer him/her the same courtesy you offered him when you adopted him. If you need to rehome him, ok. But be patient. Find the right home. Reach out to the rescues in your area. Contact the Humane Society and schedule a surrender. If they say you need to wait your turn and it could be 2-3 weeks, wait. Do right by them. We humans fail more than we succeed. All of us. Animals can't fail. They can only do what we have taught them. They only know what we teach them. They only know how to love us. They don't know how to give up. They don't know how life changes effect us past how much more they need to love you. Give them the courtesy they have given you. If you can't keep your animal for whatever your reason, ok. But be humane. Be compassionate. Show them love in transition. They did not ask you to adopt them, that was YOUR decision. I am not asking you to change your life and keep him. I am asking you to change their life and give them the best possible chance at finding their forever, even if it is not with you.My heart breaks, just like all of yours, watching this video. It is a constant reminder of our motto, "If you see something, say something."As a small non-profit here, we solely run on your support and we could not do these things without you. Please share that compassion with others. Please don't see a stray wandering and leave it be. Call it in. If you are in Clark County, call us. If you arent, call your local Animal Control, or Humane Society and report it if you cannot catch or contain it. If you can, do so and call them/us. And most of all, please, please don't assume every animal you see roaming has been dumped. Even though in THIS case it is true, It is a very very small percentage of animals that fall into that category and more often than not, they are not abandoned. Even if you are in a rural area or not. Near a park or not. More often than not, they have loving and caring owners that are searching for them and want them home. Give the owner the benefit of the doubt and don't judge the situation until we get answers.We have trapped a whole bunch of lost pets. Hundreds that if you saw them when they were trapped you would have thought someone had left them to die somewhere. I assure you, most humans don't do that. Thank you everyone for all of your support and we will continue to update as we have more information. But for now, please take away from all this that if you SEE something, SAY something. <3Video Credit: Alyssa Ott and Brandon Price

尻尾を下ろしており、近づいてきた別の車に向かっていく姿が悲しい。

 

この動画はワシントン州にあるオーチャード公園で撮影された映像だ。このカメラを設置していたブランドン・プライス氏はただちに犬を保護して、「I Paw’d It Forward」に連絡。犬は無事だったものの、年老いており、治療が必要な病気を抱えている状態だったという。

 

犬にさらなる悲劇が

 

投稿には2万件以上のリアクションが寄せられ、8500件を超えるコメントでは、「オレゴンプレートだから、テスラ(女性の乗っている車種)のディーラーに連絡してみる」などの捜索に協力する声が多く寄せられた。

 

また、「犬は飼い主を、自分自身のことよりも愛してくれているのに」「なんて悲しいんだ」「心が痛い」などの犬への同情の声、そして犬の引き取りを希望する声が寄せられた。

 

犬は一時的に預かってくれる家庭に引き取られ、ヘンリーという新しい名前が付けられたものの、動物虐待で調査中の事件であるため、新しい家族を探すことはできなかった。

 

女性が見つかり、新しい家族の元へ

 

しかし、ヘンリーの悲劇は長くは続かなかった。彼を捨てた女性が見つかったのだ! そして第2級の動物虐待が言い渡された。

 

8月30日(現地時間)、ヘンリーは無事に新しい家族の元へと引き取られていった。

 

Update on Henry. The update everyone has been waiting for.Henry has been adopted! He is going to a loving home where…

Brandon Priceさんの投稿 2020年8月30日日曜日

 

ヘンリーの朗報を伝えたプライスさんの投稿には、彼の新しい門出を喜ぶ声が投稿されている。

 

「なぜ彼女(元の飼い主)があんなことをしたのかを、知ることはきっとないでしょう。でも、ヘンリーがとてもいい家に引き取られ、今までにないぐらい愛されて甘やかされるってことだけを知っていれば十分です」と、プライス氏は投稿を締めくくった。(了)
