Hereford Family Comes Home To Their Mutilated Dog After Attacked By Neighbors Dogs
Here's what she shared with us and she would like your opinion.
VENT-------I had an incident happen yesterday June 4, 2013. I owned a blue pit bull, his name was Cane. Nicest dog ever. He loved our kids and was so playful with them and our small chihuahua . He never hurt anyone, never showed any kind of aggression towards any human or any other dog that came around. Well yesterday morning 2 neighbor dogs came over to our backyard where mine was tied up. They killed my dog. Mine had no chance at all being tied up, and 2 against one. He was not only killed but mauled to death. The dogs that killed him left him for dead, and then just laid down next to him,as if they were proud of their kill. They didn't leave. I called the police department who then called animal control. Animal control literally walked their dog from my yard to hers, to give it back, as if nothing had even happened. The only reason why he did take the dog in was because she did not have a way to tie up the dog safely. As for the other dog he took that dog in because the owner of that dog wasn't home at the time. keep in mind that these two dogs are brothers and live in 2 different houses that are next door to each other. And it just so happens that the owners of the dogs are sisters. These people have their dogs back, and we will never get to see ours again. I don't know if its me being selfish or what, but I think they should have been taken away, quarantined, put to sleep, something. I have 3 small children all under the age of 7, and a little brother. The lady who lives basically in a house in our backyard has a son and babysits several small children daily. What if my children had been out there. It was bad enough that they had to see our dog laying there dead with these vicious dogs laying next to ours. All the owners got was a ticket. These dogs were out loose in our backyard, and it's not the first time they've been loose either. There are several surrounding neighbors who can attest to that. One neighbor has even called the police before to report one of the loose dogs in their yard. I have pictures of the dogs laying next to mine after mine was dead. I got these pictures by driving my van all the way up to them opening the door and snapping pictures. And they didn't even move one bit. That's because I drove the van all the way up to them. I also have pictures of my dogs injuries. He was torn up from head to toe. He had a whole in his chest where you could see his insides, his neck was torn open. Even his tongue has bite marks. His drinking water was full of blood, and the ground where he died at is soaked in blood. It was just a horrible situation all around. Yes they got a ticket but what do we get. Nothing at all. I at least think they should be held accountable for our dog. He was very expensive bought from a professional breeder. Some people might talk crap about me having took pictures. But the pictures are proof of what happened. One of the owners had the nerve to ask me if I had pictures of them fighting, basically saying that it was my dogs fault. She had no sympathy what so ever, she didn't even care. No apology what so ever. I guess that's why I'm so angry about the whole situation.------Sam
Here's the pic 'Cane' is the dark brown dog in the middle.
This is something that's going to affect this family for a long time. It wasn't just a dog, 'Cane' was a part of the family. This a heart-breaking story and prayers go out to the family. What's your opinion this situation?
