Recently, I came across this post, about a dog that has been seen wandering around, seemingly lost, on the and around the summit of Mount Fuji in Japan.
As a dog owner myself, this post caught my eye…and very soon ripped my heart to pieces! How could anyone be so callous as to do such a thing? I cannot imagine any harm coming to my dog Shera here….he is my constant companion:
I don’t know the story behind this case, but if the dog really did belong to somebody, surely he/she, if they were devoted animal lovers, would have alerted someone, moved heaven and earth to get a hold of their treasured pet?
On the other hand, as is more likely, if the dog has simply been taken up there by it’s callous owner, only to be dumped there, well…..well, in that case, nothing can be done to bring the owner to justice. Nobody will know who it is, so the secret is safe with the owner.
But what about the animal? What is going through it’s mind, as it aimlessly wanders about, surviving on bits of food left it by visitors to the mountain?
Your thoughts please on this one….
