Yeah, I'd say he went a little too far with the manner in which he killed the dog!!!! Hope the little girl is okay, but I think something should be done to the man for killing the dog the way he did!

F the stupid dog. Glad it's dead. we care more about animals than people, and that is disgusting.

Wow. The dog needed to be put down, but the owner seems to be more visious than the dog. It takes a special kind of person to be able to beat his pet of 4 years to death with a hammer.

I would have turned the dog over to the authorities, or taken the dog to the vet for humane euthanasia.

this is so sad. how can someone do that to their pet? especially if they have kids and have had the dog for 4 years. especially more since the parents of the girl who got bit seem to feel remorse for the poor animal...how pathetic people are.

Im glad the little girl is ok. Thankfully it wasnt worse. I agree the dog should have been put down just not in the manner it was done.

I am so sick of hearing we care more about animals then people that disgusting in itself. Just because we care about animals DOES NOT mean we value you them over human life. Point blank whats right is right and whats wrong is wrong. Some of us understand that animals dont have a voice of their own and do need to be protected from stupid owners. I am not saying this owner was stupid. I do believe the owner lost control and went about things the wrong way. Im not sure how alot of us would have handled the situation. However to be able to hammer a dog to death is just wrong!!!

I just wish the word pit bull was left out... like a doberman or german shep. has never bitten anybody and the owner said he didn't mean to do it... anybody who thinks killing a dog with a hammer is a humane way is just as bad as the dog... thank goodness the girl will be ok i feel the woman is innocent but the man should go to jail for as long as he could

I feel bad for the little girl, but the law is the law....cruelty against animals is punishable by law! That is simple cruetly regardless of the fore facts!

The female (can't remember her name) said she thought the dog might have been trying to play with the little girl because his tail was wagging, and then goes to say that she feels that she saved the little girls life...now it might just be me, but the statement from the female owner is kind of contradictory (sp?). And though I am glad that they took care of it immediately, hammering the dog to death was not the way to go about it. Though, if thaat is all the owner had on hand I assume that he just grabbed it without thinking???

I live in Shelby...I feel so bad for this little girl, and also think this ordinance is there for a reason...I do not agree with the way the dog was dealt with, but the dog did need put down.
