pit nutter of the month: steve markwell - rescue angel, lion tamer, child of the universe, and a good candidate for B12 intervention
steve markwell of the olympic animal sanctuary.
it was a tough decision that was only made easy when Idea Mensch published this piece around x-mas. markwell talks about a pit lab mix bite that he received a few months ago that broke his hand. markwell shrugs off the broken bones. he sees dog bites as an opportunity to expand his personal scar collection for the day when he meets that special girl. you know, cuz girls like scars.
markwell has a rather bizarre view of dogs and the world. he doesn't think it is fair that dogs are singled out among all other animals and not allowed to bite. he states, "Cats are allowed to bite all they want. Horses are allowed to bite and kick and stamp. A hamster can bite. But when a dog bites, we go crazy." maybe i live a sheltered life but i have never heard of cats or horses or hamsters escaping containment and going on a rampage.this man with a mission to save dangerous dogs first came to my attention when he took in SNAPS. snaps was sicced on a woman in seatac, washington when she tried to intervene on behalf of the dog who was being beaten by psychopathic teenagers. king county animal control deemed snaps unsafe to adopt out but sent him to live out the rest of his life with this dog nutter. i can't tell if markwell is crazy or stupid.
