Dachshund Dog Used As Bait
Uggh. What a bad start to the week. Well, things can only get better, right? In a horrific story out of KwaZulu-Natal, a province of South Africa, a red smooth Dachshund named 'Jasmine' was stolen from her home by poachers and used as bait to lure wild animals into illegal snares. Apparently a dog's high-pitched cries attracts the wild animals. Jasmine was one of the lucky ones though; a neighbor heard her cries about 4 hours after she went missing and rescued her just as she was surrounded by bush pigs. Read the terrifying story at The Times.
