Bloggers like Michelle Malkin are downplaying a disturbing video of a Marine throwing a puppy off a cliff in Iraq– an incident that has stirred a lot of attention and shock.

[Indian, Alaska is about 10 miles south of Anchorage]
When Holly Grant’s dog ran into the woods near Indian and started making a fuss earlier this month, she thought maybe there had been a confrontation with a wild animal.
“I started calling her name,” Grant said, “calling and calling.”
Trucker, a 3-year-old pitbull-Labrador cross, did not come, however. So finally Grant waded into the snowy forest looking for her pet.
What she found horrified her.
“When I saw her, she was caught in this trap trying to get out,” Grant said.
The trap in question was a Conibear body-gripping trap, the kind of trap known as a killer trap.

This is a pretty laid back video (called “El Perro Loco”) of my first paragliding instructor ridge-soaring with his dog, Kemo.
