Recap: Due South S 1 E 15 The Wild Bunch

Fraser, Ray, and Willie must find a way to free Diefenbaker after he gets taken in by an Animal Control officer after Willie lets him out to play with his friends (a pack of dogs that Fraser feels is a bad influence). If they can't free Diefenbaker, he will be put to sleep for biting the animal control officer, who is secretly selling the dogs he catches on the black market for animal testing.


Tropes

  • Blackmail
  • Blasting It out of Their Hands: Fraser shoots Arnold's rifle out of his hands, with his own rifle at very close range.
  • Kick the Dog: When Benedict captures Maggie, rather than return her to her owner, he simply removes her collar and claims her as a stray. Later, it is revealed he plans to sell her to be used for illegal animal testing.
  • Meaningful Name: Arnold Benedict, named for Benedict Arnold, probably the famous Turncoat in American history, is secretly abusing his position as an Animal Control officer to capture and sell dogs on the black market.
