chinese lanterns

Recommended Posts

has any body else had any injurys to there dogs from the remains of chinese lanterns? while out the other night with a friend and his dogs we slipped ness to a rabbit she turned it from the hedge and into the feild then all of a sudden she just triped and rolled over like tumble weed in the wind and let out a huge yelp that was unmistakeably pain and lots of it. we ran up to her to see her legs were caught up in something that later we found to be the burnt out remains of a chinese lantern! she is now laid up with 9 stitches to her shoulder and covered in grazes :thumbdown:

Not had trouble with the dogs but the sheep and cows eat the wire and it cuts all there insides to bits. not to mention they are still smouldering when they land. They are a liability.

thats strange, do they eat the wire around the fields which make the fencing? barbed wire lay on the floor, Or wire ties etc... thought they just ate fodder and grass..How do you know it cuts all there insides up? just an interesting subject..

 

As for a liability. The other friday evening when we had a celibration of life for a family friend, 22yr old boy who hung himself on xmas morning, they were perfect, and we let 100 go, into the air with messages on from loved ones, they definatly werent a liability then, and touched quite a lot of people...

The farmer I do some work for is always on about it. They just seem to pick it up and eat it, not saying they seek it out to eat it but if they come accross it they tend to eat it, have more trouble with the cows than the sheep and if anything swallows metal wire its not going to do much good to thier guts. If you want to let them off thats your business mate i'm just illustrating some of the problems they can cause. Very sorry to hear about the lad hanging himself mate.

ATB, Aaron.

I was photographing hound pups at the hunt kennels over the summer, whilst there i was asked by 1 of the local vets to photograph a PM ( batteries had gone on his camera) he was there to do on a bull....................... cause of death, ingestion of metal fragments, poisioned the beast. The vet was explaining how many cattle are lost to chinese lanterns. Not good. :thumbdown:

Hey Aaron mate, thanks, and dont worry. I should imagine anything eating metal would f**k them up(apart from goats, lol)..Just think it strange that they would eat it, but when you think how thick a sheep is, then i surpose you realise why...There are many things out there which cause haRM.. These are no more dangerous than a plastic bag..

 

If A dog trips up over it, then it is one unlucky dog... As there are heaps of wire, metal, fence stakes, machinery, old gates etc, lying about in our countryside..
