To the Editor:
On Aug. 17 my six-pound dog was attacked and killed by a neighbor’s pit bull. He had been tied to a lamp post and escaped. The dog had been adopted from a no-kill shelter in Lake County. He was immediately returned to that shelter and put back up for adoption with no mention of his aggressive attack. Is this really responsible behavior? Do such animals belong in a close-knit community as ours?
I doubt that many volunteers and charitable contributors even know no-kill means no-kill no matter what. I was in contact with over 200 neighbor’s via Nextdoor. All were shocked that this trend was taking place. Many had some statistics and experiences to share. This is not just the story of an irresponsible dog owner. Please don’t let this happen to you.
