We have two dogs roaming our neighborhood. They are owned by a family and kept in the backyard, but they always get out. They have never been a problem before, but recently, they decided to start killing neighborhood pets. So far, they have killed two cats and a small dog, and each pet was killed infront of people. The man whose dog was killed was on his front porch when it happened. He started throwing bricks at the dogs, and they bit him. About five people have filed reports on the dogs. The dogs were roaming again, and the pound picked them up. People have been calling the pound to figure out what is going to happen, and they won't put the dogs to sleep! They are just waiting for the family to come and get the dogs! The family has known that their dogs were doing this since the very first cat was killed, and they didn't do anything. That went on for about two weeks and they did nothing. I might be wrong, but I have a feeling they aren't going to do anything different this time. I know I don't want any of my pets, or any other family's pets getting killed! Do you know of anything else we can do to prevent this?
Have you tried getting them for neglect? They are neglecting their responsibilities as owners.....They are also responsible for any vet/people hospital bills caused by their dogs. Call the cops,file a report with small claims court,whatever you can do in your area.
It's sad when pets get out of control and cause harm to other pets and people. The ONLY reason this happens is because the OWNERS of these pets are irresponsible people who should not have pets in the first place. It is not the out of control pets who should pay the price, but the owners. The fault lies solely on the owners, not the pets, as they are simply demonstrating instinctive animal behavior. People forget that family pets are still animals, not really too distant from their wild ancestors. It is up to the owners to take responsibility for their pets. It's sad that animals "gone wild" pay the price instead of the human beings that own them. It should not be the pets that get put down, but the owners who should go to jail.
This is so sad. I think maybe you should call the media expose the pound and family for not taking care of there pets the sad thing is neglect probley caused the dogd to be like this. What will be next them killing a child?
all you can really do to protect your pets is to keep them indoors and only go out with them. a neighbors doberman was attacking another neighbors little chihuhua, the owner of the dobe stood on her porch and watched and did nothing. i had to literally jump on the dobes back and bite his stump tail, hard, until he let go. he tried to bite me, but i got both his back legs and flung him into the tree. he ran up to the porch yelping. she never said a word to me because we have had "words" before about her dog and i won. it had already killed another elderly ladies little scotty dog. i told her that the next incident with her dog and i would have my brother take the dog out "hunting" with him.she started keeping him confined after that. and luckily the little chi survived with only a few puncture wounds.
gee.. i could'nt imagine if a big dog got hold of teacup.i would just die seeing this in front of my eyes. i wish people would keep their dogs secure better.i even watch teacup every move when i let him out dont think he couldnt hurt someone child.little dogs can do just as much damage as big dogs.
Thanks you guys. We are going to have to do something else about these dogs. I am being careful about keeping my dogs in the fence, and inside. The dogs are not running around now though, they are still at the shelter. They have not been claimed yet, and it has been about 5 days. The shelter is no kill; if the family doesn't pick up the dogs, what will they do with them? Surely they won't let some family adopt them! Thanx, Me Loo :)
