On Saturday, a California animal shelter issued a public warning via Facebook after receiving a disturbing phone call from a man who was trying to adopt a dog that he could eat. The Barstow Humane Society advised page followers that the call was “serious,” explaining:
Please share. This was a serious phone call.
We had someone call the shelter wanting to adopt a dog. Didn’t care what it looked like. Just wanted a dog. Wanted it to weigh about 30-40 lbs. Asked if he was looking for a certain breed or age. He said he wanted to “EAT IT”
According to the shelter, the man got angry and told staff that they were discriminating against him because it was “his culture” to eat dogs. The shelter worries that he will be trying to acquire a dog elsewhere. The wrote:
He kept calling and he will most likely be calling other shelters or rescues to adopt.
He will be calling from an 832 area code. We have his name and number.
