I want to applaud the selectmen for coming to their senses and recinding their order. And to Mr. Passanisi as well for not dragging the town into court. He saved the town thousands of dollars in tax payer money and allowed the matter to be settled at town level at his expense.

My dog had just gotten accused for killing a goat this morning. I did'nt see any blood around his facial area, none on his paws/ chest area.. the only blood i seen was on his right rib cage, and there was a mere 2 splatters of it. during this my dog had his little brother with him, about a 3month old pup, my dog being 7months, but they both strayed from the house as i was staying at a friends house and only 1 came back. the pup was killed, and i think i was told it was shot,and i believe that thats where the splatters of blood came from on my dog. But i dont think my dog killed the goat, i think a coyote might've gotten to it first. only thing im aware of at this point is me getting a citation for it and a court date.
