    INDIA, Calif. – Officials say a 78-year-old man tied a puppy to train tracks in the California desert, and an engineer had to use emergency brakes to keep from crushing it.

    Riverside County animal control said in a statement Tuesday that Banjo, a 10-month-old poodle-terrier mix, is fine and up for adoption.

    The train was near Mecca on April 2 when the engineer saw a man walking away from the tracks and stopped.

    Union Pacific Special Agent Sal Pina responded and called the scene "one of the worst things I've seen."

    Pina untied Banjo and detained the man, who said his family didn't want the dog and didn't know what to do.

    Pina says he couldn't pursue charges against the unidentified man because he appeared confused and didn't understand what he'd done.

    What a horrible man - he's never heard of animal shelters?

    What a butt wipe. Can you imagine the terror that pup experienced as the train approached closer and closer and couldn't run away?

    He should have taken the dog to an animal shelter.. at least it would have a chance of being adopted. There is no excuse for such a cruel death. Shooting him in the head would have been a far more humane way to execute him. I know that sounds cruel but it is what it is.

    A little off topic...but when I was a kid I grew up in a rural farm community and people didn't have a lot money for a vet to euthanize a dog or cat. When pets got old and were suffering, and their time had come for the Rainbow Bridge, you gave your pet to a neighbor or friend and they took the poor old pet and did a mercy killing for you.

    In a nutshell... they would take them back to their property and cover their head and shoot them with a single merciful shot and then bury them for you. And you would do the same favor for them if they asked. I know that sounds barbaric and cold hearted but imagine having to do that dirty deed to your own pet if you couldn't afford to have them euthanized humanely at a vet office. It is what it is. icon_sad.gif

    I'm glad that puppy escaped his narrow brush with a cruel death. He is a very lucky pup.
