Animals in captivity

The three-year-old was attempting to put toy handcuffs on his family’s dog the other day. Thankfully the animal is fairly small and amazingly tolerant, a King Charles Spaniel, not a rottweiler (a breed unlikely to take kindly to having its paws handcuffed). Years ago I was taught how to apply handcuffs (yes, really, there is a certain art). I was also taught that when you handcuff a suspect to a lamp post you put the handcuffs on afterwards, not before (advice proferred by a training sergeant when he noticed one of the recruits looking up at the top of the lamp post and frowning).

In case you are concerned about the dog it got up and walked away with only one of its legs handcuffed – and not to a lamp post.
