It's weird how it keeps evolving g when She created the original narrative herself. If I were reasonably ashamed of killing a dog as a person should be, I would probably give all the information up front. Actually, I would have taken it to the vet to be euthanized. Actually Actually, I would have given it to a shelter to see if there was somebody willing to care for this poor dog. There were several other steps less grievous than the last she could have taken, rather than shooting it, regardless of its history.

u/Urso_Major May 02 '24

u/Surroundedonallsides May 02 '24

Any farmer I know, and I knew a lot being a rural carrier, would know that a one year old puppy is too young to just leave unsupervised with livestock. They need training and care, and are often either left to run the yard away from livestock or sticking with the other working dogs in a pen.

Shooting a one year old puppy isn't just callous, its a waste of money and resources. On any rural/farming social media you'll find handful of posts about new backyard farmers learning that young puppies take time to adjust to livestock, especially poultry, and not once has anyone ever suggested to just shoot the dog.

Not a farmer. But, I hear it was a pure bred, so probably not neutered, and I am guessing male. It is hard to describe the personality of a 14 month intact male.

27

u/xelle24 May 03 '24

I'm (mostly) a city girl, and even I know that:

  • goats smell
  • in fact, most farm animals smell pretty bad
  • un-neutered male farm animals often smell really bad
  • goats are not, generally speaking, known for being "nice" animals
  • goats are known for charging at people and head-butting them, whether they're un-neutered males or not
  • there's absolutely no need for anyone to keep an un-neutered male goat if they aren't breeding it, and Noem doesn't seem to hve been involved in goat breeding or goat milking

So at this point, this "mean, nasty, smelly" goat is allowed to just...wander around freely and charge at her kids? Is the goat not kept in a pen or a pasture (although goats are also known for being very hard to keep penned in)? She complains that the goat would knock her kids down and ruin their clothes, but apparently doesn't understand that getting dirty is what happens around farm animals? Are the children not allowed to get dirty?

I wouldn't trust this woman to sit in my dentist's office near their fish tank, much less with any other animal.

u/SwillMcRando May 02 '24

This is the dog whistle part. She has said these incidents show that she is willing to "make tough choices" and "do anything difficult, messy, and ugly... if it needs to get done..." She says both the goat and dog were dangerous to children, so she did the "difficult, messy, and ugly" thing and killed them. She is using "think of the children" to justify violence against the perceived threat. When else have we heard conservatives talk about perceived threats to children? Something about storytimes and library bioks. She is literally saying she is willing to cross the line and do what might be considered ugly to protect the children.

Ugly includes: violating rights, encouraging violence against targeted groups, enacting unconstitutional laws, using police power to harass groups marked as a threat, etc. She is signaling that she is willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate a perceived threat. That is the moral of the story she wanted to get across. But she miscalculated on how much people would focus on the dog part.

u/jolsiphur May 02 '24

Hunting dogs cant hunting dog as an untrained puppy.

There are some dogs that will also never pick up on it even with a ton of training. That doesn't mean you have to kill it though. You can always just rehome a dog if it is not being trained the way you require.

Killing an animal like that is just abhorrent. There was no need, no real reason. She could have just as easily surrendered the dog to a (no kill) shelter and it would have had the same net result to her, which is no longer being responsible for the animal.

Kristi is a waste of human life, just an all around trash human being. The Republicans truly do bring it their best don't they?

The shocking part is really just how casually she drops that she murdered a puppy. It's so cold. There's no weighing of the decision and worst of all, no discussion with her kid. A kid who immediately asked where the beloved family puppy was, according to her own writing.

u/improper84 May 02 '24 edited May 02 '24

I’d say “being trained” is generous. From the excerpts I saw from her book, it sounded like she brought the dog along with her hunting and just expected it to know what to do. Then she had the dog, a bird dog with a high prey drive mind you, off leash on her neighbor’s property and, shockingly, it killed some birds.

People that use this breed for hunting often get their dogs professionally trained. One of my friends has the exact same type of dog and, when it was a pup, he sent it away for both gun training (to remove any fear of firearms going off, which is obviously essential for a hunting dog) and, later, training for the retrieval aspect of his job. The breed will have some of these instincts built in the same way my boxer has acting like a moron built in, but you still need to actually train them.

You also have to be mindful of dogs like this even when they are fully trained. My buddy’s dog will absolutely chase down and kill small animals if he sees them and has the chance. I’ve seen him eat a baby bird whole when he was younger even as his owner yelled at him to drop it. Pointers are bred to have a very high prey drive and you can see it at work if you’ve ever interacted with one. My dog, on the other hand, couldn’t give less of a fuck if she sees a squirrel or a bird.

And it was completely self inflicted, too.

Nobody forced her to publicize this shit. Nobody was out there begging for her to tell the great story of the time she shot her fucking dog in the head.

She could have kept her mouth shut but nooooo....she had to own those libs.

Being nice to dogs isn’t even a litmus test for a good person. Even Hitler liked dogs. Everybody, even people who don’t really like dogs, or get annoyed by them, is generally nice to dogs.

So if someone isn’t nice to a dog, that sets off alarm bells. You trained this dog to hunt, got mad when it hunted wrong, and killed it out of frustration. That’s it, that’s what happened. This would be a red-flag character flaw on a Tinder date, but represents a completely unacceptable temper tantrum by someone who wants to be the Vice President of the United States

I was under the impression that she didn't actually train it, she just expected it to know what to do

u/mjzim9022 May 02 '24

She brought it out with "older, seasoned hunting dogs" and expected it to learn from them, even though that's not even close to the correct training method.

u/TOG23-CA May 02 '24

10 bucks says she read that dogs learn how to behave from older dogs and figured that's how it worked for everything, even thoigh that advice is specific to socializing a dog not training it

David Wong/Jason Pargin made this a plot point in (IIRC) “This Book is Full of Spiders.” There was a dog that showed up for no apparent reason throughout the book. In the end, the dog is killed in crossfire on national TV, orchestrated by extra-dimensional entities because “both sides” of the conflict will sympathized with a dog but not a human.

u/Cynical-Wanderer May 02 '24

This is just horseshit at this point

She's lying

She's already done.

"Think of my children"... really? Strange how none of this is in her book. The dog pissed her off and she shot it. Apparently it had just prior to that been having a good time chasing butterflies... no idea if that's true or not, but I'm going to assume so

She's been banned from entering about 10% of her state... the various Native American Reservations want no part of her. She's anti democracy. She's an adulterer. She's a puppy murderer.

Good grief, can't they do better than her???

So, even in her "for the children" defence, she never considered shelters, trainers or other methods to remove the still learning puppy from her home, she defaulted to murder. Yeah, that's a major problem.

u/SumsuchUser May 02 '24

That, coupled with the fact her definition of a working dog is a recreational bird hunting dog, makes it abundantly clear this was a family pet and anything she says going forward is attempting to water down the story. It feels 100% like this dog was unmanaged, killed two chickens, she paid for the damages as one should, and executed the dog purely out of anger over the incident.

Almost every time a modern, pampered F150 'rural' sort claims to be doing 'hard country stuff' what they mean is being cruel for it's own sake.

u/HomeOrificeSupplies May 02 '24

Here’s my theory:

She admitted that the dog went wild on a pheasant hunt. It happens with a young dog. She probably paid big $ for the dog and expected perfection. This is what moneyed people expect from their high dollar animal because they feel entitled to it. Then she brought it home and the BIRD DOG had the audacity to attack her BIRDS. This was the last offense. The rest of her story sounds like contrived convenience. I’ve had bird dogs my entire life. I have yet to see one that was perfect and they most definitely aren’t high performance until at least year 3. I could be wrong, but she strikes me as the exact type of person who would do this shit.

23

u/Already-asleep May 02 '24

It’s crazy because even a working dog needs to be a trained. A handler of a working dog needs to be trained. Even a herding dog might show its instincts by staring, crawling, nipping etc but you still have to teach the dog how to herd the way you want. But the number of times I’ve heard “my puppy doesn’t listen to me when I say no!” Well, your puppy doesn’t know what no means. They don’t speak English, believe it or not.

u/Thepenismighteather May 02 '24

There’s one reason you shoot your dog, and it’s when it has a disease that will kill it, and it’ll be painful For the animal to go through it, and you can’t afford/justify the cost of the treatment.

further, it’s not 1935, no one needs to take old yeller out behind the shed. You can take the sick dog to a vet And let them put it down painlessly.

this whole poorly trained vicious thing, is a much broader criticism of her leadership abilities. If you can’t train a fucking dog, how on earth can I expect you to manage the country? If you can’t pick a dog that doesn’t have a predisposition to violence, how can i trust your judgement?

the only positive in the entire story is she “did it herself“ you can spin that into a ”she’ll get her hands dirty with the tough decisions”. but that is quickly overshadowed by the understanding that she was willing, quite readily, to a take a life when there were many other options.

so she’s bad at management, bad at decision making, and quick to kill as a solution to her problems—just who I want a clogged artery away from having her finger on the proverbial button.

22

u/thesuitetea May 02 '24

She also says the dog was "untrainable" but also goes into detail about not even trying to train the dog and relying on a shock collar, which is not good practice.

So, she basically bungled it from the beginning making a dog suffer throughout, leading up to a violent death.
