That was so wrong. I am a dog person but there is no justifying that sort of Small Town Mentality.

I think she means the newspaper article at the top of the page, which was referred to in the thread title. That used to confuse me too :-) What confuses me now, is the comment about the "small town mentality." This sort of thing doesn't happen in large towns/cities?

I think the shooting of the animal just made Younce snap… he would have probably snapped anyway pretty soon due to him having a territorial, egotistical, and yes I agree… small town mentality.

Small town mentality is the name of one of CDC's songs. By the way I live right near Grandin road, did you guys know that they shut down Kings Creek Elementary and the bus routes for Hibriten the day after. (My brother's in high school.) I still can't believe all that nonsense over a dog. I'm used to people shooting each other, but to shoot a little girl...damn. I think I would have shot the guy myself if he didn't do the job.

Seems like he and the neighbor suffered from the same thing! This had been going on for a while and neither of them had the good sense to let it go! They BOTH kept it going! Now they are both the losers. I guess the other guy can live in peace now, if he can live with himself for keeping the stupid fight going in the first place!

If the dog bit the girl a couple of years ago, I wonder if animal control got involved? Did they ever quarantine the dog? I believe if a dog leaves its property and bites someone else then it needs to be contained and possibly destroyed. If that would have happened in the first place maybe we wouldn't be here like this today.

Oh I thought they called school off completely. Regardless it was for a man search.

It was because the SBI, Red Cross, and reporters had set up camp at the elementary school. The 3 hour delay allowed them time to finish up their investigation.

Well if the dog bit the girl a year ago then the dog should have been destroyed. You never know what a dog will do and once they bite eventually they bite again. If a dog of mine bit anyone I would have it destroyed. You just can not snap over something like that. There were probably other issues there. They dog should have not been running loose. I have a boxer-pit bull and he is on a cable and in a lot. I hope that all that was injured is doing okay my prayer go out to them

I live right by where this happened. If i had been the parent of this child,I would have ripped the dog to pieces WHEN the dog bit her, not a year later. Its hard to believe that all of this happend over a dog though.

To Paratrooper; you are absolutely correct! I can not even imagine living beside someone for two years with a constant feud going on. I can only imagine the stress these children were under.

It amazes me how people will defend their rights to have an animal that has proven to be vicious.

Going by the article the dog killed the Moore’s cat. That fully justifies the animal being put down. It has nothing to do with Mr. Moore “letting it go”. It was quite evident that Mr. Younce was not going to deal with the matter so Mr. Moor had no choice but to defend his animals and family. I do not know what the state of mind of Mr. Younce was but it does not justify shooting anyone over a dog.

What gets me is how this feud didnt spew over before now, and to believe this is all over a dog.
