While this is a sad and horrific story it actually has nothing to do with the topic of off-leash dogs.

If you read the story, all of the dogs involved were on their owners property in fenced in backyards. It appears the beagle that was killed found a hole in the fence or was pulled through the fence into the neighbors yard.

That's a stretch. Surely theres a better way to beat the war drums on this highly over-discussed topic.

The real concern is owners that don't take care of their pets:

"Dave Perschbacher, the pit bull's owner, is out of town, but he left a message on Webb's cellphone to apologize and assure him he would take care of the situation."

So were the pits abandoned in the yard while their owners was away?

That guy Dave leaving his dog in the yard while out of town...so irresponsible!! Once again a pit getting a bad picture painted. If that dog had little socialization and probably VERY bored being in the yard alone all day...bad things can happen. Tired of lazy dog owners. No pun intended by such a huge pet peeve of mine! If you can't be bothered with proper care and training then do us a favor and get a fish or a cat.

You never read about labs "devouring" another dog. Mostly Pitt Bulls.

If my neighbors had 3 Pit bulls in their yard my 9 mm would be close by. Hollow points.

Umm, oh... I dunno... Maybe if all dogs involved were never off leash it could not have possibly happened? Just a wild guess. As in, maybe take your dog outside ONLY ON A LEASH as opposed to leaving him unattended in the back yard ?

I don't know what a leash implies to you, but to me it implies being tethered to the owner. I'm not saying that a diligent owner who has invested in a proper fence shouldn't let their dog roam the property supervised, I'm saying that if there is even a remote possibility that the dog could get out or other animals can get it, which there pretty much always is, rover should not just be let out into the yard without the owner close by.

No, they kill babies instead.

Generalizing a specific act to a species is as wrong as generalizing a specific action to race of people. All dogs are different. "Judge the deed, not the breed"
