Some of you may have read of the case of Oreo who was thrown off a building last year. He was then sent to the ASPCA - and the ASPCA said they found that he was unpredictable and aggressive. Oreo was then killed on Friday. I can understand that he might not have been able to be adopted out - but it's strange that when there were other supposedly reputable shelters with experience with traumatised/aggressive dogs, that Oreo wasn't given to them for adoption. Here's a good opinion piece by Nathan Winograd.

This is an excellent article. I like this:

"Sayres issued a press release replete with crocodile tears ('We are all upset by this') ..."

We should use the term "crocodile tears" more often when communicating with the PR departments of the various Singapore government bodies: they often say things like "we wish we don't have to do this ... blah blah blah ... this a last resort ... blah blah blah ..."
