I don't see what's wrong with taking something that actually happened to you and at least turning it into something you can look back on and say "hey, at least I'm not crying when I think of that anymore".

Okay there is no sense in spoilering this anymore.

What gets me is that, not only was that a pointless, plotless, episode....
But it was a real event that they decided to put as part of the slender series.
If it was absolutely necessary to show this footage, then post it on an alternate account.
That really is not right. God help that dog.

I hate to say it but this series has really hit the bottom. Even without the bastard euthanasia via pistol, nothing is gained or lost from this. It wasn't even creepy just sad.
The only good thing I can say about this is that at least they had the common sense to add a warning to the beginning of the episode.

@ Cougar--They may not have had a choice in what happened, but they did have a choice in uploading it. It was a stupid mistake, that didn't do anything for the series.

1. It wasn't a mistake.
2. I am sick and fucking tired of people apologizing for a dog that attacked at least two people, and was only in that situation because it was aggressive to other people, notably children. The dog needed to die, and if it had not been put down when it was, someone could have been seriously hurt. And I cannot accept that anyone here would rather a human get hurt than a vicious animal.
3. I'm also sick and tired of people saying that it's not "necessary". What a bullshit thought. Nothing is necessary. Nothing at all.
4. The giggling, and reaction. Some people react to panic with laughter. I do.

The last thing I'm going to say before this thread gets thrown into a flamewar.

It's a mistake for the story.
There is nothing to be gained here by posting this other than to get negative attention.

If a dangerous animal, (regardless of dog, wildcat, bear, fluffy bunny, whatever) is attacking me or my family, and I have a gun. Guess what I'm going to do? Shoot it. But I'm not going to take the video I did of it and post it online. Unless I want that kind of attention.
And I wouldn't try to utilize it for my creepy video series I'm doing.
That's just asking for trouble and borderlines on trolling.
They knew they we're going to get a slew of crazy views and comments once this was posted.
To not know that is to be more niave than should be acceptable at their age.

First of all, you're right. The whole censorship thing really pissed me off, and I've probably been out of line. Back to my quasi-amused angle.

Who's saying they didn't know? Speaking frankly, any press is good press.

I object to any video that doesn't advance the plot. Any. Video. I'm still irritated by the pointless Evan Cameo in a ten minute long video where all that happened was a greasy Evan popped up and pointed them in the direction of the main road.

This was sensationalistic, horrible, unethical and totally, utterly pointless.



Sure, if the dog is violent, by all means get it put down, but put it down in an ethical, human manner. I promote using real occurances as story fodder, if you can, but there is a point where things become needlessly graphic. How did this advance the story? How did this benefit the viewers?



I've been bored with this series for a while. Now I'm irritated with it as well.

@ Cougar--No problem, we all have a right to our opinions. Smile

And while that is true to some degree, its the kind of press that your gathering that makes it not worthwhile.
I might be putting these ladies on a pedestal here. But I assumed they we're in a higher category than, 'Lets post this crazy footage we got of a real dog getting shot and make it part of the series. That will be really scary right?'
....not really.

@ Checkers--Once again you have put a finer touch on what I wanted to say. Smile I agree whole heartily.

And understandable explanation from her. I would continue more on this but it would just be redundant to what I have been saying.
And with that I bow, and graciously depart the thread.

I believe if you actually read the post, you'll note that the dog was actively violent towards people, and there was a real possibility that if they hadn't put it down right then and there someone would have gotten hurt severely.

It's been set to private, not taken down entirely. Which is somewhat better, if it had to be done at all. I found it in poor taste, but I fully expected to wake up today and see it was taken down by youtube's flagging system. Which sucks. I hate censorship.

I'm glad I missed this. I don't have a problem with putting down a violent and dangerous animal, but I find it a little disgusting that they decided to film it and put it in the series. It's... Disrespectful to the situation, shall we say. I watch these series for fun and entertainment, and I don't approve of the death of an animal being used for entertainment.

My totally unsolicited two cents.

Anyway, they've probably lost me as a viewer over this. It was a shitty move.

The dog was not injured in the video, just freaked out by the gunshots.

Seriously, read Aimee's post. It explains everything very well and very eloquently.

I did read it. It doesn't matter if it was just scared, his intention was to kill it, and their intention was to film it and put it on YouTube. The fact that he missed has no bearing on how I feel about it. The dog living was a mistake. And honestly the fact that he missed and terrorized it just makes it worse, but that's not the point. Intention is the point.

It's okay that the dog wasn't hurt in the video, that's cool and all. But the fact that it was recorded and whatnot is a little odd, maybe even disturbing. But the dog didn't die in the video, it wasn't hurt, so no harm done is really done.

A user at UF downloaded before it was taken down and later uploaded it to Megavideo:
