Tennessee dog owner sends dog to be euthanized because he suspected dog was "gay."

OK, there is sooo much crazy to this.

A Tennessee dog owner sent his pet to be euthanized because he suspected the dog was "gay." Fortunately, the pup was later adopted.

A Jackson, Tenn., resident surrendered his "gay" dog for euthanization to the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter on Jan. 29 because he saw his male pitbull/American bulldog mix "humping" another male dog, the Examiner reports.

The Huffington Post confirmed with Jackson Rabies Control, a high-kill shelter, that the dog had been surrendered because his owner believed he was "gay."

Although animals can be gay, dogs mount each other to express dominance, for play or because of nervousness/excitement, Psychology Today notes.

A Facebook campaign was set up to try and save the "gay" dog, according to the Atlantic. A Facebook post detailing the troubling situation called for immediate action.

3. Good for his adoption

He doesn't deserve to be with any owner who wants to get rid of him because his owner thinks he is gay. What would this owner do to his own children if he thought they were gay?

11. I have told many people ....my dog

is a trysexual. Until he was fixed...he would try to mount any animal that he encountered..dogs...cats...birds...turtles...you name it. Oddly, never saw him try that on a human. I guess he had discriminating taste!

12. We had a dog that would hump our kids.

My 2 year old was scared of it. I got the impression aggression was part of the picture.

(The dog was a stray)

We found another owner for it.

18. In other words, "Tennessee dog owner is too fucking stupid for words" right?

This fuckwit is why some animals eat their young. You have to be a special kind of fucking idiot for this.

Go ahead and ban this. Cheers.
