It's off-topic, but the people saying crating is cruel weren't people who usually post on the dog forum.
Anyway, I'm glad the OP had a place to talk out what happened, sorry the conversation turned out like this.

She was to bring him back today.

Her psycho neighbor said the dog crossed his property this morning, and shot him with his rifle.

WTF is wrong with people???!!? He is on the slab and he had to be surrendered to the State Lab, with a chance of not getting the body back. So he dies like this, and I can't even cremate him with dignity. I HATE PEOPLE.
Why wasn't the dog properly secured on his property? Again it's illegal to let a dog roam. So the owner's at fault right there. How do you know the dog didn't try act in an aggresive manner or attempt to attack and the guy shot in self defense? Dogs attack people all the time.

Again, even the OP did not see what happened, and is going off another person's account. Almost everyone is jumping to conclusions that


was shot by





But this is the same forum that assumes crating is animal torture, so what can you expect.
It seems you're content to assume the dog was at fault and all of us attempting to console the OP are little more than mindless idiots easily led by our emotions.

Aside from seizing an opportunity to crap on those attempting to assuage someone's grief and sense of loss was there a point to your post?

A dog was killed under regrettable circumstances that neither you nor I were involved in. You have no more knowledge of the events than do any of us that posted in support of the OP. What do you hope to gain by trashing supporters while minimizing the sense of loss felt by the OP? When did kindness and sympathy shown to a person feeling grief become fair game for someone apparently lacking in compassion for the pain of others to use in an attempt to bolster their own ego?

It's a sad fact of life that some people that have little else to offer seem to enjoy kicking people when they're down. Welcome to ignore.

If you actually read this thread, you'll see that the OP has confessed that he/she is more upset about the situation than pointing blame at the shooter. She even shared the blame with the dog foster or whatever.

I dont think anyone wants to see an innocent dog shot, but I just saw a lot of replies placing 100% blame on the shooter when the whole thing seemed ambiguous.(ie why wasn't dog secured, was shooting self defense..did dog act agressive ect.)

It's just so discouraging. I don't trust anyone and I am disgusted by the human race.
Unfortunately the bad humans cast a terrible light on the rest of us, including dog lovers.

Have you filed a formal complaint with the Orange County Sherrif's Dept.? That would be at the top of my list. Get a report # when you go.

You never know, this dog-killer may have a history and karma may be served with a warrant with a bit of luck.

I've seen stuff I'd like to forget.
My deepest condolences from one who understands your emotional pain and dismay at people and their heartless actions.
I hope there's a heaven for dogs, as well as other animals. Humans need to pass the test though.

That is absolutely appalling. There have been times in my life when I wanted to do violence to dogs' owners, but never to the dogs. In any case, I realize how heartsick you must be. You have my deepest sympathy.

How about a little more detail on the story so we can clear things up. Was it in the paper? If so how about a link.
