Animal bungy jumping

Should animals (other than humans) be allowed to experience the thrill of bungy jumping. I am just wondering if it is ethically OK to allow the dog to do this. Has anyone any experience with this

I'm all for it. We used to do it all the time in college. I suggest a cat first, then maybe a billygoat, followed by a cow. Then, do them all together at the same time.

There's a travelling road show that goes to small-town America that has a diving horse. The horse goes up this 25 foot ladder, is prodded onto a diving board, then the diving board collapses and the horse plunges into one of these portable pools.

Its hillarious.

you triggered a weird chilhhood memory-- years ago when i but a tiny cortez my parents took us on vacation to ---i think it was north carolina- and i where i now remember seeing that very horse show you described

this memory has triggered an almost melancholic -memory mood

its kind of made me realize that the first animal that i help bungi jump has to be a horse,

do you know the name of the horse you spoke of

I cut out a picture of the horse after I read about it in the newspaper and put it on my wall at work. I'll post the horse's name tomorrow.

Smoky the Diving Mule. (external - login to view)

I have a picture of Smokey I cut out of the paper several years ago. Sometimes I'll just burst out laughing when I look at it.

Who would think this is a good idea? And better still, who would think "Yup, I've always wanted to see a mule high-dive." I mean, in an un-ironic way. I'd go see it just to witness the bizarreness of it all.

Have you seen the ad with the rock climber? He has his kid on his back in a harness, as well as his weiner dog in a harness beside him. Fun for the whole family.

For people with too much time on their hands. (I mean, as opposed to people with more than 40 posts on a fourm.)

Hey, I googled the phrase "diving mule" and guess what? The link to CanCon came up third from top.

WOO-HOO! We're not wasting our life here!

In the interests of safety, I would like to suggest that newcomers to the sport make their first few jumps without the bungee cord, just until they get used to it. :P
