Im a dog lover, mostly labs. I believe the owner should be charged with neglete for not feeding him. But as dog owners, we need this type of law to stay in place to help protect others. If an animal has turned on someone or another animal, it needs to be destroyed. To many peta members telling us how to handle our animals.
One example, regarless of any laws in place, if my dog attacked someone or somone elses animal, I would also choose to destroy him.
There is a fine line here so do not take this as a comment that I do not care about animals, just that I beleive the govement caters to different groups than to the public.

It has become a sad world where everything is disposable. Things don't have to be as difficult as some people make them. Like the lady said a simple phone call would have kept an innocent animal that cannot speak for itself out of harms way. It's sad the dog has to pay for its owners stupidity. The animal owner is an unfeeling cruel monster and should not be aloud to have any pets. This is definitely a law that needs to be fixed and fast!!

I agree that this law needs to be kept in place. I would much rather have my pet have a quick painless death than suffer in the vets office. I speak from experience.

...but this dog didn't have a "quick, painless death." that's the point of the story.

Another example of how this country has changed. "I just shoot what does not work for me ... its not my fault ... its everyone else's fault". He didn't feed his dog. Who is responsible for that?

First let me say I do not condone shooting your dog because he ate a bird. Now that this is out of the way “Another example of how this country has changed”??? no its not, that’s and example of how it hasn’t changed, that’s not a new law tard!!! Next “this dog didn't have a "quick, painless death." that's the point of the story”, He wasn’t trying to wound the dog with a shot to the face, that wasn’t planed. Then “I believe the owner should be charged with neglete for not feeding him”. He didn’t, not feed the dog it got out. O and your misspelled neglect. Now the worst of you all Katie “yes i argee we need a law that you can not shot animals. they are human too.” Do I even need to say anything?
Know that that is out of the way let me say I am a dog lover, and I have two dogs. If my dog was killing pet’s would I shot him? No, not unless he was killing something and it was a last resort to save the other animal. We don’t even know how many other animals that dog has killed or hurt. The fact is this man did something that he was aloud to do under the law, and that’s that.

Then go have it humanely euthanized at a vet office where they can do it the right way...

Are you freaking kidding me? Iowa is not an animal friendly place in general and THIS horrible story says it all. I hope this dog finds a loving and "human" owner this time who will care for him as he deserves. Don't care at all if the owner was "challenged" with whatever, don't be such an a*#!

Why didn't the guy just shoot it again?

Oops I shot my dog and now it's running around with a bullet in its head. I better take it to the vet.

"(He) had gotten hungry and ate some of the neighbor's chickens." said Jorgensen.

This is directly off the article. So if the dog got hungry enough to go out, find food,(Neighbors Chickens) then the owner was not feeding him enough. Its a lab, a big dog??? They eat lots of food. That is why I said the owner should be charged with neglect. Oh and Oh is not spelled O and yes I spelled neglect correctly this time.

Your whole response was very difficult to understand. You also say "If my dog was killing pet’s would I shot him? No, not unless he was killing something.... So again, what is your answer? Would you shoot it or not? You claim No but then the next word is not unless, meaning Yes I would shoot if it was killing something.
The only thing you and I agree on is yes he did something that was perfectly legal and I do beleive it should stay that way.

Everyone of you needs to proof yourselves before you submit anything! Now back to the dog. I new him personally and he is a wonderful animal, but he needs a lot of personal attention. He is a big loving lug (not to be confused with Chester) of dog. Very loving. I was livid when I saw this last night. Now for me the main concern here is how well are the rescue leagues screening potential owners. If someone has a history of mental health problems do you really want to give them an animal that is dependent on them for the basic essentials? NO. So let's back this whole thing up to the people in charge of giving these animals to "loving homes". Marvin is NOT happy!

So true. This dog probably did everything to be loyal to his owner. He became hungry and BOOM - Since the owner was too stressed to feed the dog maybe he should be shot for being stupid. Iowa has some of the most lack laws for animal cruelty. Remember the possum set on fire and the cat beaten to death in their shelter. Slaps on the wrists. This brings us to another question. If people are so uncaring to animals are humans not far behind?
