It’s probably impossible right now to determine what the original objective was way back then when it was decided by ‘well intentioned’ people to ‘save the Bali Dog’. Whatever the single purpose then or its mission now, the scope has certainly widened and competition is expanding to highlight the plight faced by Bali’s very own indigenous dog.
But what is the Bali Dog really facing, apart from an unregulated unchallenged and unmitigated rapid change to its environment and habitat. The Bali Dog and their life partners the Bali People are being subject to an invasion unlike any other in their ancient union. Unfortunately though, this invader is not a weak neighbor or some single imperialistic and bully minded country, this is a global consumer fuelled tsunami that has been welcomed in and consciously wanted.
On occasions past when they have needed each other to repel enough historical forces through too many lifetimes, they have certainly stood without question as one defending determined and balanced energy. Way back then it was just so, because there was a unified value in protecting and preserving the currency of their ancient culture.
Promoting all things Bali over the past fifty years has now brought ‘Paradise’ to the precipice. For sure there have been positive spin offs and of course everything changes, however cultural cracking and dogma division is now rapidly emerging.
Like all missions that creep further and further away from the initial objective, there is a real and historically proven risk of catastrophic failure due to initial successes that create and breed more and more ambitious pathways. This strategy and mentality can result in a lost cause that has moved far away from whatever the goal originally was.
Saving Bali Dogs from actually what and in particular who is maybe the question the latest growing numbers of well intentioned people should ask. The unpalatable answer may just reveal that it is in fact this most recent full frontal foreign mission, a bloated and belligerent beast gorging on its own success, which has crept up over time and is arrogantly attempting to inevitably reshape Bali culture and divide Bali Dogs from Bali People.
Consciously and unconsciously we are all involved in the power of poison. In this dump age of throw it away, really far away and way over there out of sight from me mentality, wanton toxic waste damage is encircling and threatening to bite huge chunk holes from our growing and already arrogant collective arse holes.
Toxic turds come in many forms, but the premeditated and planned power of poisoning is so abjectly atrocious that its criminality against universal health and wellbeing should be met with swift and direct eradication of the perpetrators. Guess that would result in a majority cull of human beings.
Bali Dogs on streets, in villages and everywhere they reside are subject to agonizing and slow death by way of poison much more often than anyone knows. It is a common and readily used solution to rid what are obviously seen as toxic fur turds from a society that is beginning to drown in the environmental effluent of leftover consumable crap.
The poisoning of Bali Dogs is unfortunately not that special and there are sadly many who don’t care what happens and is done to those things that impinge upon personal comfort and convenience. It will become much tougher to Protect Promote Preserve the Bali Dog on any street or place where they threaten and impede progress. Their removal will be imperative in order to make way for an accelerating and insane purchasing power mentality.
Until the Bali Dog is seen as valuable and needed, unfortunately this unique and culturally significant canine will continue to be culled in the cruelest ways.
