I thought this was a bit intresting no Dog should be allowed to roam around where ever it wants another Bad decision by a owner
It's a shame those dogs were killed..but I'm kind of having a problem with the ruling that was made in this case. There's NO mention the dog was off of the owner's property when these dog fights occurred. All it says is that the dog was allowed to run freely on the owner's property and wasn't kept in a pen. It could very well be the dogs that were killed were strays-and wound up paying the ultimate price for the "sins" of their owners for letting their dogs run free.crxman321 said:Elston said the pit bull was allowed to run freely around Carter’s property and was not kept in a pen. The officer said Carter was ordered to get rid of the dog because it poses a danger to children living in the area. If the man fails to remove the pit bull from the property by the end of this week, he could face charges for permitting a dangerous animal to be at large.
I have two acres, the entire property fenced with six foot chain link. None of my dogs have EVER jumped that fence, or escaped from my yard in any way. They've been trained to respect boundaries, they've been gate trained to not crash through if/when the gate is open (the only time the gate being open is when a car or person is going in or out).Lexus said:The only thing that could give me a moments pause is if the yard was fenced. But then that comes full circle to how did the other dogs get in. .
Good observation, and I agree 100%.Codysmom said:I just wonder that the dog being a pit was going to get blamed even if the others had been wrapped in filet mignon. I have a sneaking suspicion that if it had been a lab or a golden the article might have read differently (even even written) and the community response would have been different too.
