As Atticus’s character is the enforcer of anti-racism and proves how killing the dog was necessary in taking a step in stopping racism. Which in the beginning of the chapter ten Atticus states “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit'em but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.” (Lee 119) What atticus is implying is that the mockingbirds are black people and they do nothing to us but sing yet they still face racism. So, when Atticus shoots the dog being like the blue jay it's more of atticus stopping racism showing how Atticus plans to try to abolish racism even by death. Racism seems to seep through one’s mind,latter burrowing into more as the idea spreads infecting the judgement of people. It's curable to an extent, but the idea can’t be stopped only unsupported by the people, people whom can look past a color of one's skin and accept them as a human being.

While some differences between them are evident, the similarities are salient. In “The Red Bow” the daughter of the main character, Ed, had been killed by four rabid dogs which motivated him and his uncle Matt to exterminate all the rabid dogs, including the four that were responsible for his daughters death, and then further escalated to exterminating all the animals in the community that were suspected of being infected. While on this mission to eradicate the community of rabies Ed’s uncle Matt had some resistance with the pastor in terms of him not wanting to put his dog down. This led to uncle Matt staking out the pastor’s place and videotaping the dogs changing behaviors. Ed and his uncle Matt finally got a village meeting together and took a

The main character is busy barricading the house to make it safer, Mr. Cooper is in the basement waiting for Ben to do all the work and take all the risks, much like slave owners did many years ago. Correspondingly, throughout the movie Ben is betrayed and held back by the white people around him, just as the African Americans have been for many years.

When the monster was shot by the father of the little girl he had saved from the river, he stated that, “inflamed by pain, I vowed vengeance to all mankind ( Chapter 16, Par. 19).” At this point in the novel, we can somewhat agree that the monster has lost all faith in humanity. He will now start to become the monster that everyone fears. However, if we look closely at the monster’s reasoning behind his actions, we are able to notice that he was only frustrated at his present state of being, in this case a bullet wound. Not only that, but also how he has been rejected couple of times in the novel by society and even by his own creator.
“We’ll have trouble keepin’ him from getting right in the box with them pups’.” This quote is symbolic because George and Slim were discussing how much the puppy means to Lennie and how Lennie is infatuated with the puppy and in chapter five Lennie’s strength is evident as he accidently kills the puppy. The death of the mice foreshadowed the death of the puppy. “He made like he’s gonna bite me…an’ I made like I was gonna smack him…an’…an’ I done it. An’ then he was dead.” When Lennie kills the puppy he destroys his window of escape from the bunk house which could take a toll on his childlike need to get out and play. A gentle, little smack from Lennie toward the puppy was enough to kill the puppy.

These people would then euthanize their dogs in fear that they would turn against them (Delise 97).

Most cities would kill any pit bull that is loose, because of the rumors and some still do (Kalof). Ever since the media started bashing
