Animal crackers

Just a few tweets about animals to enjoy! 

I'm sure by now the whole world has recoiled in horror after hearing that South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem boasted about killing her dog. She really deserves the title "Christ, what an asshole!"
Hollywood was horrified too: Saskatchewan dogs! Sweet: Revenge is sweet too:

In the 6th century, a sailor threw a bottle at a whale off the coast of Constantinople. In response,the whale spent the next 50 years sinking so many ships off the Byzantine coast it was named Porphyrios after the giant who attacked Olympus & the Emperor unsuccessfully dedicated his reign against it

Noem may be a Dominionist or be courting dominionist votes. Permission to harm animals and nature appeals to the far right Trumpaloonies.

Stephen Harper and Stockwell Day belong to a Dominionist sect. Ask me how they turned out.

Hmmm... good point!
I couldn't believe any editor would have let that story stay in, but I wonder now if she was afraid the construction workers would out her eventually, so some political fixer pal told her to "get ahead of it" and "put a positive spin on it" and that's why she included the story.

Perhaps killing animals makes her feel better about herself. She could have taken the dog to a shelter to be re homed or to a good dog trainer. She doesn't strike me as a nice person. I do believe you are correct about "getting ahead of it"
