A dog in my neighborhood once got lose and killed my daughters cat. However , I did not hold this against the dog nor would I of allowed them to kill it This is the owners fault , and they should be fined. The owners of the other dog also have the right to sue them , But under no circumstances should the dog be killed for doing what came natural to him. It is the owners fault.

Amen, I had a jack russle/austrailian sheppard mix, a hound mix(both bought at the humane society) and a female pitt bull then I aquired a pitt male puppy. I would keep the jack russle mix separated when I'm not home. I visited a different curch that day and evening and left in a hurry and put them all in the same room and when I returned home that evening my austrailian/jack russle was dead, covered in blood. I wanted to shoot them all (thank God I don't own a gun) then I thought about it...

Dogs will do what comes natural and I'm glad I didn't have a gun. Dogs are people too, at least mine are !

this is very sad. I do not think this dog should be killed however SHAKING IS HOW A DOG KILLS ITS PREY. This dog would need very strict conditions around other animals. The owners should be held accountable. the dog is just being a dog. its his human that needs to be educated.

Watch utube videos of dogs playing with their toys AND of dogs killing rats, cats, other dogs etc. They shake, shake, SHAKE! In both play, attack or hunting mode. But Karla Weston is correct. ' Obedience training for dog and owner and special requirements at the home. I.E. higher fencing and professional evaluation. It is up to us as dog owners to know that if anytime your dog gets loose they could possibly do some harm.' I have little dogs and would be VERY upset if this happened to me....

Maybe the owner of the dog that was killed could have some input on the case.

Missy Riling: I think most of us agree that holding the animal responsible in this case isn't justice, and is counterproductive. There are certainly plenty of people in the world who either don't know well enough how to care for and handle canines and their behavioral needs, or simply don't care, and that frustrates ALL of us. Please know that we're on your side on this issue, and try to resist calling anyone here an "idiot." It reflects poorly on your, and degrades the conversation. I think you're better than that.

Missy: Agreed on dogs jumping high fences! A friend and I were walking our dogs the other day, and we passed by a house where a massive german shepherd was jumping up behind a fence that had to be at least 6 feet high, if not higher - and this dog was getting some pretty good air! My friend and I both exclaimed our amazement (and nervousness) at the same time. That dog could've easily cleared the fence and come for us if it had wanted to.

Actually Missy it isn't stupid, what we consider play with a dog, is a natural behavior within them. Though it may be a play behavior now, it still can lead to consequences and death, as in this situation. This is no reason to put this dog down, But to Vent out and freak out on people who truly are knowledgeable about such behaviors only is showing how little you actually know about "true" dog behavior and instincts. Please inform yourself, And educate yourself. I myself am a pitbull...

I myself am a pitbull owner and must be VERY informed about dog behaviors ie: what is aggression, play and what can lead to aggression and play aggression, and I do so to protect my dog from situations such as this. The more informed you are about your dog, dog behavior and individual breed behavior, the better owner you are and the better you can protect your dog from situations that will set him up for failure and possible euthanasia.

I don't see what this dog did wrong, so there is no need to kill him.

Judy Lee Adkins-Pietryka

Pls let Norman go home back to his family as they need Norman to be home with them, DOn't KILL HIM PLSSSSSS, and hes seeming not aggressive!

don't kill him!

Norman needs to be allowed to go home with the parents responsibility that he never gets out of the fence again (resecure the fencing area). I have a similar situation (but it was biting/snipping) and my dog is a model dog. I do not agree with killing Norman. That is inhumane.

Greetings-- I am writing to you about Norman--

BIG Dogs are gentle giants.....note the word GENTLE...I have owned Great Danes, Saint Bernards,
and now and Irish Wolfhound...they are big and look menacing, but they are anything BUT that.
I have also raised three young children with these lovely, gentle, kind, sympathetic, compassionate, good-natured, placid and sweet tempered dogs.

I urge you and the rest of your fellow city council folks to reconsider and allow Norman to continue his...

I urge you and the rest of your fellow city council folks to reconsider and allow Norman to continue his life--as a gentle giant. This lovely fellow never hurt a human being and certain didn't mean to hurt this other little dog.

My 190 pound Irish Wolfhound and 150 pound Great Dane play with 3 pound poodles on a daily basis...the poodle owner drops them off at my home and they all run around the yard.
I assure you-the only harm that might befall the little guys is that they might run underfoot of the big galoots...
Your decision is drastic for an action that DOES NOT require this big guy to be put down.
Allow him to continue working with the disabled--certainly a gift that all of those disabled folks cannot do without.

Thank you so much for your time and concern.
God Bless

Where I live, the AC understands when dogs do this...my dog was in a similar situation and spent 1 night in AC but then once we met conditions, (muzzle when walking) she was released ASAP to us. They told us this is a dog's instinct it doesn't mean it is an aggressive dog, this is just an accident...Let Norman go...This is a traumatic event all around and it doesn't have to end in another death.
