    Looks like paint or dye, why do you think it's abuse? and where are you seeing them?

    Video is tagged as being from Burma, so just your healthy evening dose of racism/xenophobia/imperialism towards those with non-Christian religious practices.

    [Painting red on the body is a Buddhist protection ritual, Burma being a very Buddhist country and all. Actually shows the opposite and that someone cares deeply about the dog.]

    The dog looks happy and healthy . . . it's not as if they cropped his ears (or pierced them as with one I recently read about).

    Yeah like Maggiethewunder dog, shot 17 times, ear cut off, blind, broken jaw, but acts as if she is a normal dog and still shows love to humans after. Most loyal things in the world are dogs.

    Is painting red lines on a dog as a Buddhist protection ritual torture? Why on earth would it be torture?
    What do you think torture means?

    No.1 I never accused it as torture, if you read with you're eyes and not you're ass you would see what I wrote, also I never knew what them red lines were, whether they are scars or whatever It didn't look right so I came onto this forum to see what others might think, You simply could have said "They are religious ritual lines." Thanks though I think I got my answer :) Much appreciated.

    @O2.0 had no need to say that as I already had. You asked your question about torture after my explanation, which you clearly hadn't read with your own eyes ;)

    I would advise, in future, if your question genuinely comes from ignorance (at present you sound very much like a troll), to ask your questions fairly in much more open terms. "Can someone explain what this is?" type thing, rather than pointing fingers.

    No, you asked if it was, and I asked you why you would think it was.
    See? Even ass reading I still have decent comprehension ;)

    Anyway... I searched youtube for the video, linked below. If you skip in to 8:40 minutes in, you can clearly see a well-fed, happy, people-friendly dog looking up at the cameraman with curiosity. Zero fear, apprehension or any indication whatsoever of any abuse.


    Maybe it's just me, but having actual experience with abused dogs, I find this sort of thread distasteful at best :Bag
