Picture this a true story..., an elderly couple live in a house in the woods. Just on the other side of the woods is a traylor park. One morning the elderly lady has to go to the store grocery shopping and ties there small cocker spaniel to the outside tie rope while she is gone. Her husband is wheelchair bound and would not be able to let the dog out if needed. She is gone 20 minutes when her husband sees out the window a pack of mixed dogs in the yard and can only watch helplesly as the pack litterally rip and tear there cocker to pieces. These dogs were turned out on purpose from the trailor park residents because they needed ROOM TO RUN They created havoc before and after this incident until finally being caught by animal control and 2 were euthenized as they were so viscious. All the owners were fined. What if a child were in the yard instead? I love dogs. I have 5. I respect and value my neighbors and have trained my dogs. There ARE dogs that need to be shot, maybe this troublemaker is one of them.
