Agreed, especially the 2nd bit.
What makes me confused is that.... Weed is introduced kinda inconsistent. He befriended GB easily despite GB not being a perfect angel, but lashed out at Sasuke for insulting GB [in the manga]. He befriended and went easy on Mel when he was being bullied by Blue, and also tried saving Blue despite his nasty deeds, but after hearing that Kaibutsu was a dog treated terribly, didn't have a second thought to take him down [and didn't have a language barrier with him either]. He befriended the monkeys despite their hostility at first, because of baby Pepe, but didn't think about how him and his friends killed the hybrid bear's cub[?].
I know Yoshi isn't the best at keeping up with characters and is very flip-flop about their morals, but we know for sure Weed would never force people to do something they wouldn't like, would do what he can to make sure people are safe [if you ignore the Russian arc LOL], and is always kind.
The now Weed sounds nothing like that, and was definitely made this way for the sake of plot. Not development or anything interesting like that at all. It's sad seeing Weed getting this kinda disrespect after we see 60+ volumes of his life just to be turned into this u3u;
On the other hand, Weed tried to save Sasuke even thought he didn't even know him. P4 is actually interesting as P4 speaks in "black" (as do bears, wild boars etc) and at the beginning only Jerome speaks with him. At some point some other characters also speaks with him so it kind of ruins it, but I can't remember if it was a real conversation or were they just shouting something to each other. Weed's attitude towards P4 would be easier to understand if he didn't see him as a dog, but just some monster.
Monkeys understanding dogs is very strange, but I think that dogs can't understand Shogun as they never speak to each other. Part of the reason why dogs tried to be friends with monkeys was probably because they wanted to protect Pepe and he explained the situation to dogs.
Hybrid bear's cub was alread adult and attacking. I think he actually killed mother bear and later her cub and that caused dogs to attack again.
If only the whole P4 saga would have been like it started (only Jerome could understand P4 and everyone else thought that he was just a monster), Weed's attitude could have been easily understood: if it's different species, it doesn't deserve mercy. (Which is bit horrible, considering that all different species that we have seen have had family, friends or pack so they are not just mindless animals. But on the other hand: dogs must eat.)
So maybe Weed (and Ouu army) are kinda like most meat-eating people: if it's cute, you must not eat it. And Sirius is vegan trying to explain that bears are just as inteligent as dogs are.
