Yup....first thing I thought was the dog was probably a "tire biter" and it had nothing to do with the kids.
Why would US vets be apart of something so wrong. The only thing I can think of is publicity....."hero vets save hero dog".....crazy.....

Oh yeah. There are not that many cases where the whole Group actually agrees on pts'ing a dog.

I just read the update from the vets in the US. There are NO plans to try to do reconstructive surgery. All they plan on doing is some "dental work" and closing the wound. This is beyond shameful! This dog should have been PTS after the incident. The amount of pain the dog HAS to have endured is ridiculous to have put her through. Not to mention the daily issues of not having half her face. Then you let her have a litter of puppies?!?!? How on earth is she even eating? The kindest thing the US vets could do is end her suffering. There is nothing that they are going to be able to do for her that's going to improve her quality of life. If you truly love and admire an animal, you have to know when to say good-bye and end their suffering.

That dog bit the tire and got stuck. I'd bet just about anything on it. They should have put a bullet in her head when it happened. How the HECK did she tend to her puppies? I won't even go into them letting her HAVE a litter! >

This is sick, human selfishness.

Some wounds cannot be healed.. Her bottom jaw is going to have serious problems now.

Not to mention, she has no nose!
A dog's world is scent... this is just so revolting. Ugh.

This makes me MAD. The poor dog is in pain and they let her get PREGNANT? The owners should be.... The poor dog needs to be PTS so she is not suffering anymore. I can't understand how people can feed off the suffering of a poor animal (and that is exactly what they are doing). They are exploiting this dog to get money. Evil people

UPDATE --- This makes me so mad, I could spit.

Kabang's "surgery" is being delayed - because she ALSO HAS HEARTWORM & CANCER!!!! They're "trying" to determine a chemotherapeutic course of treatment for her!!!

Well, I went on a tirade last night (after the Presidential debate, of course...). I've called & emailed 2 local TV stations. Same with UC Davis. Then called a vet for whom I used to work, alumni of UCD. Premier surgeon in our area. He agrees with the assessment that Kabang should be PTS & promised to make a few calls today.

Wish I could be out on the shooting range today, instead of @ work...good way to release tension!

And everyone on these facebook support group is like "Please stay strong little Angle." and "So heartbreaking, stay strong."

Gosh it makes me sick to my stomach. This is not helping but prolonging the suffering and avoiding the inevitable. I am so mad, so so mad. What the **** is happening to these people that they cannot make a rational and compassionate decision and let her go. this is nothing but exploiting a poor soul.

I agree TOTALLY! And I HATE having my hands tied - nothing I can do except complain to the vet school & the local stations that are glamorizing this hideous mess.
