Re: “Enough with the dog shootings, already

Horrible that someone is shooting dogs in the Springs. Obviously a deranged person who needs help and/or jail. But as a dog lover, former resident and frequent visitor of the springs, I gotta say y'all have a problem too. I have met "don't worry, he's friendly" on countless occasions and been snarled at on hiking trails by him (and I'm a small woman who is very accustomed to dogs). I've had my own -- leashed-- dog charged at by unleashed dogs, probably the same kind of harmless wanderers this poor guy in the story was.

This is a divisive issue because you frame it into "dog lovers vs non dog lovers" -- when the real issue is "responsible dog owners vs irresponsible dog owners". The saddest part of this story isn't that this guy got shot (don't get me wrong, that's sad and effed up) it's that no one thought that he might be in danger otherwise and took him in, or took him to a (non-kill) shelter. They're no more dog lovers (and the number and breed of dog you own does not a dog lover make) than the guy who shot him.
