Hehehe - I've lived in areas WITH restrictions, and when it comes right down to it, there's not much difference. We've got a guy 2 doors down that won't mow - we call the City, they cite him, he mows...give it a few weeks and repeat - there's no "teeth" in it, so every offense is a "new" one. It's gotten to where when we call and mention the street, they already know where to go!

I think part of it is sheer frustration - if venting here keeps him from pulling the trigger a few more days, that's great. Hate to see any animal put down, but in the case of one that's allowed to roam free and causes damage, there's simply not much option.

well i can see where his warning would give him an alibi to save him from "animal cruelty" and being taken to court for premeditated murder (the PETA types get that crazy) so if he mentions it on here, and the dog is dead right now, i'll back him up...

I realize if you live in a brownstone in a city where green grass is a precious commodity, that this concept could seem a bit foreign, but here - land owners often use their guns to control snakes, coyotes, and the like.....the law supports their use of the same with dogs, if the dogs are 'running livestock' with the intent to harm, or have harmed or caused the death of livestock. Likewise - as a dog owner, "I" am and should be very aware of those laws....and therefore protect my dog from being shot by a land owner for harrassing their animals. Again - proper containment..... Every ounce of responsibility in a situation like this, falls squarely on the shoulders of the dog owner.
hahaha....I was being funny, some people take it too literal. hey, if you stepped foot on my property with the intent to harm me, yup....you'd have a bullet in you

You never know over the big internet in the sky - couldn't tell by your post if maybe you lived elsewhere and didn't realize how much of our state was wide open spaces
