I really can't get over the fact that these 2 lose dogs, known to run around, are going to be sent back to their owners without any punishment. They killed a dog and seriously injured another while the victims were in their own yard! No one is being punished but those who had control of their dogs and are currently deeply saddened by the lose of their dog and injury to the other. Based on the website posted they are unwilling to discuss this situation to include the secretary hanging up on the caller twice. His question was about the laws of loose dogs that kill another dog. If the mission is to make the community feel safe, why isn't this goal being met? With this happening it could happen to another pet and it could happen to a child or adult!! That doesn't seem safe to me! There are other avenues to fix this problem and sweeping it under the carpet, being unwilling to talk to anyone about it, is not going to work. There are rescues that can be arranged to pick them up from Animal Control and can re home them to responsible people who will not let them run free. The owners are obviously not responsible enough to keep them. To some, dogs and just dogs, what if the next incident was with a human? With these dogs running as a pack they will do it again if not contained.

I also wanted to address the lack of professionalism in this video is insane. From what I have heard from others who have called with the same questions, it would be a reason for termination of their job even in this small town. I would be embarrassed to have my Dept represented by someone so disrespectful.

The county needs to do the right thing - confiscate the dogs and have dogs evaluated to see if they can be rehabilitated and rehomed. I wouldn't feel safe in the town with my pets or children with 2 aggressive dogs that can easily jump a fence. Seems like a no brainer decision, so I am shocked that there is talk of returning the dogs to the irresponsible owners. The owners are liable for all the damage caused and should be begging for forgiveness and offering to pay vet bills - but they are not. So disappointing. I hope the justice system does the right thing and prevents further attacks and punishes the "attack" dog owners to the full extent of the law.
major disappointment

Put signs up around the school and surrounding neighborhood so parents can be informed and protect their children and pet owners can hide their dogs

This town does not know how to run itself. They all need to be investigated/replaced.
There is something very rotten going on. They should be fired!!!!

Wow first off the owner was punished and you are all correct about liability. They should have shot the damn dogs as soon as they heard the attack. Its their right to protect their property.so the owner failed to protect his property both parties at fault. and for those who think I'm wrong piss off this could have been a horse killing a dog or something but because of the breed everyone of you clowns jump with your hoods and torches to take up arms against a big scary dog... Losers

this is just another case of big city people sticking their noses in places it don't belong. country folk take care of business just a little bit different than you city folks. so go to your shrinks and drink your lattes and keep your noses on your face. and for the kid that lost his best friend im truly sorry for your loss. I know that painful feeling personally.

In my neighborhood in Brooklyn, there are a lot of big fighting type dogs, but all leashed.

The other night I was walking my dog home and she was attacked by a neighbor's dog that wasn't on a leash. He just said sorry and walked away. She had some bruising on her eye, and a cut under her leg.

I waited for the guy to come talk to me, but just went home. I knocked on his door, and he pretended to not be home. I caught him turning the lights off and looking out the window.

I tried to be amicable about it. I can't even report a loose dog because I don't have the guy's name. Doubtful that he will give it to me.

I have the address, and a witness, shouldn't that be enough?
