Re: “Rural dog enters city, kills resident’s dog in back yard,” April 23
I would like to say how upset I was by this article. A fine of $150 is a small consequence to pay. To kill someone’s pet in their own yard is extremely serious and terrible. One does not have to look far to see what other outcomes may occur with a dog that is not controllable. Do we wait until a toddler is the next victim?
It is not relevant that this individual is outside city limits; their dog’s actions need to be dealt with where the effects are felt. A dog that would kill another dog and aggressively threaten two adults needs to be put down. This matter needs to be looked at very seriously and bylaws and boundaries for action taken need to be reassessed.
