New Year’s Eve rockets scared the dog Leon off

leonOn New Year’s Eve around 15:30 the dog Leon got scared by a rocket and ran off. He even climbed a fence. His Owners yelled for hours and on tuesday they heard barking from the mountain side. They couldn’t localize him but suddenly a neighbour sighted Leon on a mountainshelf about 350 meter above. The difficult mountainside prohibit them to rescue Leon and now their only hope is help from the Norwegian Air Ambulance.

But this is expencive and the owners will try to start a collect, if not – they are willing to sell their house to rescue him.

Isn’t this sad? Next year it wont be allowed to send up rockets in Norway but we are still allowed to fire up base fireworks. Which in my opinion is worse than rockets.

What irritates me more is the stupid *ducks* base jumpers who get rescued for free each time they land on a shelf.

    Thanks for your comment. Misguided money is the wrong term because the Neoncons have the power and its all about their profits and their greed and their needs and wants and the rest of us be damned. But if that term comforts you – so be it!
