Here is what I think. Shooting the dog was only one of several options. Not the only one. If this is policy, the policy needs to be changed. It was a heartless one, and has caused much grief and emotional trauma to an elderly citizen.
I think the officers involved should get the money together and let Rosalie Kiff pick out another dog to take the place of her pet that was shot. Evelyn Kinman of Sutherlin Oregon

Your thinking only as a pet owner. Look at the big picture which includes other drivers on the road with their families in the car trying to dodge a dog in traffic. Crash, more dead humans. Oh well, at least it wasn't another puppy.

In the case of the shooting of the dog Precious I have been wondering if Animal Control was called. I feel that since they are trained, and have the right equipment, they may have been able to save her. Also, if Precious had been confined in a dog seat or belted in she would hopefully have stayed in the car. Even then it would have been difficult to control her. Having had a run in with an angry dog just this last summer, I can relate to the officer, and never again will go near a dog in distress.

I don't see what you lousy saps are complaining about, dogs suck. They crap all over the place and they eat all of your food. I kill dogs every chance I get. That's what they were created for- target practice. We need to be prepared for when the true dogs from the united nations jump our borders and try to run this wonderfully free shooting range.
