Iran is working overtime to ban man’s best friend. Evidently, Iran now views having a dog as a sign of western culture and find it offensive. So how, you might ask, are they planning on fighting this? Well, anyone who is caught with a dog will be subject to 74 lashes in public… For owning man’s best friend.
I don’t even know where to begin on this. For one, dogs are not restricted to the west. There is not a culture in the world that doesn’t have a dog in some form. Dogs are one of the first tools man ever created by turning one of our biggest threats, the wolf, into our protectors and hunters.
Dogs were domesticated by humans over 30,000 years ago and our two species have enjoyed a relationship that allows both to thrive. Yet Iran would end this.
Iran has had a long history of killing dogs in horrible ways. A quick youtube search yields videos of dogs being buried alive, injected with acid, and rounded up in cages and killed in many other ways. This is shocking and unthinkable.
This is just one more way that Iran has set out to prove that they will not play nice with the rest of the world. They seem hellbent on forcing the rest of the world to wipe them off the planet or be forced to watch horror after horror.
