I recently tried to talk a co-worker out of doing the same thing, his reasoning was that this was the way they did steer? Luckily the dog was already neutered!

I'm not going to read the story...the headline is graphic enough. But, I know how to put an end to this immediately and forever:

Use the same method on men!!! They would never look at a rubber band the same way.

Stupid and cruel.

My son use to date a girl whose dad owns a ranch in the Dallas area (not going to sawy which little town) and he use to do his bulls like this--tied, not used a rubber band. I had never heard of such a thing and son wash shocked when he went there one weekend and the dad wanted son to hlep him "fix" the male cattle.

I know it is common to do it to baby undeveloped calves. Can't imagine doing it to a dog though!
