A man from Little Rock, Arkansas was awarded $14,500 and medical expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next door neighbors beagle. The beagle was on a chain in its owners fenced-in yard, as was the man. The award was less than sought because the jury felt that the man who, at the time, was shooting the animal repeatedly with a pellet gun might have provoked the dog.

    Yup those are a little on the weird side. That guy shooting the dog should go to jail. Good ones Sandee, you and Zane have a great day. Big hugs to Little Bit.

    Ha! I agree with Ann! Where is the Beagle's rights. Stupid people out there…well, he'll get his. Karma is a bitch and what comes around, goes around…getting his arse bitten was only the beginning of his ill fortune.

    I love both Einstein quotes – and completely agree!

    Wishing you a fab weekend, Sandee! xoxoxo

    As far as I’m concerned, he shouldn’t have been in someone’s backyard without their permission, shouldn’t have been shooting the dog with pellets so he shouldn’t have gotten any money and in fact should have paid the vet bills for the beagle plus extra for emotional suffering and pay for the beagle’s lawyer for suing. That would have taught him to stay out of people’s backyards and not to shoot animals, especially not to shoot animals in their home. I think the jury was crazy for giving him anything. I hope the beagle’s family appealed and countersued.
