The Union Pacific railroad engineer brought his train to a screeching halt as the locomotive came roaring toward the 10-month old terrier mix Banjo. Authorities tracked down the 78-year-old owner who told agents his family 'didn't want the dog' and he 'didn't know what to do with him.'

Wonder if he’s a former or current PETA member.
Very pleased this had a happy ending, but damn... there are some evil “people” out there.
Should have dropped him off at an abortion clinic. They’d kill him in a second . . . you know . . . snip his spine
So they tied him to the tracks in hopes he'd be killed. Good God...
? To do so he could not have been moving at more than 5 MPH.
"Screeching halt" and "roaring" indeed.
Hard to think of a more high profile way of trying to get rid of your dog than tying it to the railroad tracks, a way in which you could cause numerous deaths and a lot of damage.
And then you ADMIT it when the authorities come calling?
Wow. Stupid AND evil.
Too bad there isn't some network where you could search for better solutions than strapping the dog to the train tracks, was it Snidely Whiplash?
Exactly how much did that bit of complete stupidity cost the RR and surrounding community?
When trains at speed have to stop it involves major repair expense.
I don’t think I would have stopped for a dog. A person yes.
‘didn’t want the dog’ and he ‘didn’t know what to do with him.’
So the only thing this AHOLE could think of to do was this? I call BS.
I’m not a big dog fan (see tagline), but this just goes beyond the pale...the language required to adequately describe this ‘person’ would get me banned post-haste. Craig’s List is free, for pity’s sake...or perhaps a ‘no-kill’ shelter? There is so much evil running loose in this country now we are going to have to come up with another word to replace ‘evil’, since it is getting watered down by repetition...
I just can’t wrap my mind around humanity anymore...
So how many other animals has this sicko tortured and killed that we dont know about? Chances are this is not the first time, just the first time he’s been caught.
In this case; you have that backwards...
Psychotic people who do these kinds of things to innocent animals are about one step away from doing them to humans too if they haven’t already crossed that line long ago.
You are humanity.
What a cute little one Banjo is. Someone will want him & love him.
We murder children by the millions. People yawn. So what does having or not having any children have to do with this? People’s attitude toward children is totally utilitarian: if I want the kid, it’s sweet and innocent. If I don’t want the kid, I can suck his brains out and no one can tell me any different.
Sorry, but I find it hard to listen to MSMers who get all worked up over the poor little dog but who can’t be bothered about the Molech industry.
Good to know.
