While I understand your trepidation of the treatment of the dogs, It looks to me like they tried to be as gentle as possible, none were killed as it
seems that the village abbot gave specific orders to not kill any of the dogs, I own a Tibetan Mastiff, and while those in the documentary are mostly
mutts, the one that was getting the worst of it was a full Tibetan, these dogs are willful and can easily rip a man up, not that I agree with the
beating mind you! I am not surprised the drugs didn't work as these dogs immune systems, physical strength and stomach resilience are friggin
legendary... I could post what mine had eaten around the house during her first year with us... but that would make an entire thread itself!, and make
a few people throw-up, bleach and 120 plugged in electrical cords are just the beginning!
Tibetans are prevented from "Owning" dogs by the Chinese, as they are guardians and would pose a problem should the owner get hassled by the
authorities, again these dogs are willful and fiercely devoted to their families, mine almost ate a pit bull the other day, it wandered into our yard
and threatened the children playing in back, Mouse to the rescue, that pit wanted non of it. So it isn't a surprise that they let these "strays" run
around the town, but with the influx of strangers it would have been a problem to let them wander about. Each one has a name and a collective kennel
where they are fed and cared for I noticed.
So while it may have looked brutal, it was just what the dog understands, and better than the UNs or US military forces approach to strays I might
Forgive them they are like any other devoted follower, blind in the light of their earthly mouthpiece of their religion.
Seems that happens a lot with collective faith.
Ohh and it wasnt the monks hitting the animals it was the villagers charged with the clean up...pay attention please.
