I'm an anesthesiologist. I put people to sleep for cardiac surgery. My hospital does around 400-500 hearts a year... and we don't kill any dogs.
They ended up growing some on the windowsill.
It was really pretty interesting to watch it play out over the vacation - we were in SF for a few days before driving to LA. In SF it's tech this and tech that, and I was the guy running the show. In LA it's all bullshit, smoke, and mirrors, and he (40 years a salesman) was the wizard.
It's not tech hatred, it's the lack of redundancy.
