In mountain climbing people are sometimes left to die, but there is a big difference...A person makes a conscious decision to go mountain climbing,
and should be aware of all the dangers, including the danger of death. A dog does not have that luxury, and requires a human to take care of it,
especially in an environment like this that they are not used to. But when people get left on a mountain it is usually because of the treachery and
danger level of the mountain. There are just certain places on certain mountains where rescue is impossible, due to terrain and altitude. This mainly
occurs on icy mountains though. And from the sound of things, this was not mountain climbing, but rather hiking on a mountain. There was no climbing
involved, since dogs cannot climb.
It's because they don't have hands and feet mainly, lol. So why these two people did not carry their dog down is beyond me. Obviously they do
deserve to be punished for animal cruelty of some sort. At the very least they could have informed authorities, which would have shown that they at
least cared enough to get the dog rescued. But that is if they could not have carried her down themselves. There is just no excuse in my opinion. A
dog is just a dog, sure, but dogs have emotions, they get scared, lonely, just like a person would. It is mistreatment. And especially considering
they brought her along.
