A dog in Tennessee will be put down today unless an owner is found due to shelter overcrowding and because his owner thought he was "gay." The hound was abandoned by his ignorant owner after he was found "hunched over" another male dog. This prompted the dog's owner to assume he was a homosexual dog, not simply a dog behaving like a dog.

Experts say that a male dog mounting another is not a display of homosexuality, but rather a sign of dominance. This news sparked outrage, as animal lovers created a Facebook page in an effort to save the dog. According to the page, the dog will die by 1 p.m. if an owner is not found. The adoption fee is $38.00, and that only includes a rabies shot voucher.

Not only in this inexplicably stupid, it's very sad.
