The owner must be prosecuted, punished and banned for life from owning animals!

It could have been a child playing in a backyard and these dogs would have been having lunch or a meal with a child - OMG - wake up authorities or council people - do a thorough investigation of the remaining population of dogs on that property - are they maullers or nice dogs. Check the neighbors on what they know about that neighbor with dogs. In fact, those neighbors should have a security camera to catch the neighbors breeding and training those dogs to be killers or etc. I would.

I had an experience with dogs but they were abandoned and ran loose - they came over my dad's property while the children were playing and I was hanging my laundry till I heard my son yell and I told him not to move and I ran into the house and got my rifle and started shooting and got 2 of them and called the Police and reported it - they inturn went looking for those stray dogs and caught them -- now that is out right spooky - for me and my children! And this in Hawaii in the County area!

for some people who cant ( or dont have ) any children, myself and fiance included, their pets ARE their children and it makes no difference.

Dostana Ljusic , You are so right. My husband & I have a Manx cat & Malty X dog. They are family, our babies, & treated with the same respect we want for ourselves. No one cares about us as much as they do & there's nothing we wouldn't do for them.Their names are Cody Unrau & Bailey Unrau.

We have coyotes roaming at night. Two cats were attacked by coyotes. Also, we have huge hawks everywhere. A toy dog was snatched by a hawk a few months ago. What I'm trying to say is that the elements are too dangerous for dogs, cats, pets...should not be left outside unattended. My dogs do their business at 10pm, and they are inside the house the entire night. Dogs aren't wolves, mountain lions...they are too domesticated. So please...think of your pets as your children. Look after your pets.

Tragic, and I'm so sorry about this incident. Was Buddi outside of the house at 3 am?

Maybe the owner turned him out to use the bathroom?

Under the circumstances the owner should get off his lazy ass and made sure Buddi was safe. He knew there was a history associated with these other dogs. Buddi had to pay for all the idiots associated with the dismal outcome. The only one NOT at fault was Buddi. I hope he finds solace and comfort now. R.I.P. poor Buddi, you deseverded so much better.

I want to know what poor Buddy was doing outside at 3am in the first place, especially, if there's been this ongoing problem with these other dogs? HUMAN STUPIDITY STRIKES AGAIN. When will THAT stop?

Theresa Boivin-markowski - oh come on. Buddi was a chained dog. That in itself is cruelty. There are a lot of idiots involved in this story...

obviously the other dogs were also out. they however were not chained. they were running free would you like to meet them at night running free? the issue isnt the one chanined it is the dogs running free to attach animals and people. they should not of been running free there are laws against that. not against chanins.

It should be common sense that there are coyotes and wolves in a lot of neighborhoods! It is not uncommon. I couldn't agree more. He should have stayed with his dog and put him on a leash, if he really cared.

I want to be clear that it is the owner of these dogs that needs to be reprimanded....not the dogs....he made these poor dogs what they were and he is responsible!

AGREED....the owner is responsible or not controlling his dogs. It is people like him that give the PitBull breed a bad name. Many of them belong to families w/children.

Remember, they came into another dog's yard..a PitBull. It is the owner's responsibility. Coy dogs will also kill. The family pet needs to be protected. Other animals hunt for their food also.

Helen Diane Warden Wallace

This is the only time I will agree that dogs need to be put down, when there STUPID owners make them dangerous but you can't trust dogs that have gone bad and will kill another dog for no reason.My prayers are with this man he had no other choice and I know it had to hurt to kill the dangerous dogs.The owner should be punished for letting the dogs run loose, may they all RIP and run happy and free in doggie heaven.

You should be asking yourself what Buddi was doing out at 1am, too. Also, any dogs, regardless of breed, are prone to act in this manner when allowed to run loose and in packs. This appears to be the case here. Also, were any of them neutered/spayed? You make assumptions about these animals that are unfair. I do agree that the owners -- Buddi's included if he let him run loose -- should be punished.

Buddi was in his own yard- the loose dogs have entered and mauled him to death.

I still think Buddi's owner suffered enough. Some people only learn the hard way. Luckily however he didn't have to learn this lesson with his children also.

Leeanna Beth I have no idea why people like Buddi's owner chain their dogs in the back of open utilities either. But it happens. I don't agree with it. Buddi was a chained dog. That was his life. He wasn't a beloved family member, if he was, he'd be inside like other beloved family members are. I agree. We had maulers in our neighbourhood as well. Council did bugger all. They killed a multi-poo and I think the owner of that managed to have the dogs taken from the streets. In my...

My dogs on leads have been attacked by dogs off leads. It's a problem...and nobody will do anything to the owners of the loose dogs. Many of them would consider themselves to be fine, upstanding and law abiding citizens...until it comes to the way they treat their animals.

I believe the owner of the agressive dogs breeds them for fighting and somebody in the council is involved, which is why he is allowed to continue. Big words, but why else would this problem be allowed to continue?

Katherine Lee Hellsten

Poor, sweet Buddi. What happened to you is horrific and you should never have been put in that position, nor should the owners of the 4 dogs let them run loose like that.

Please sign this if you're against dogs, cats, bunnies and a number of other animals being killed in the most horrific way imaginable for their fur. Thank you http://www.causes.com/actions/1736270-petition-stop-the-torture-slaughter-of-animals-for-fashion.

LEEANNA TE SAID EVERY WORD I WOULD OF SAID SO PLEASE IM TAGING YOUR WORDS AS YE SPEAK FOR ME TOO! THANK YE AN I FEEL AS LEEANN A...:totally agree Lisa, especially in this situation where the danger was known about. the owner of the dogs who attacked of course should have criminal charges BUT though I do feel sad for the owners of buddi, especially the children, I can't understand why hed be outside at 3 am in the middle of the night all by himself.

In the actual article there is a photo of buddi's owners standing in front of a wooden dog house- made me wonder if he lived chained outside unattended :( or if he was just was out for a 'potty break' unattended...either way, buddi's owner's girlfriend HAD already been attacked by 2 OTHER dogs owned by the same guy who owned the 4 who attacked buddi. those 2 were put down but knowing the same man who owned 2 dogs clearly taught to be aggressive now has 4 other large dogs....well id be outside at my dogs side every second & probably w/ a weapon, Godforbid. The article says the neighbors had all been complaining about the property/dogs/owner for quite some time, so everyone was obviously VERY well aware that the dogs living there regularly ran loose, had already killed other dogs, were fighting, and dangerous! It says: "Residents have already told the council about dogs escaping, fighting, killing puppies for food, causing distress to neighbours and killing goats at the property." I'm sorry, but if I had a neighbor where I knew this kind of stuff was going on, my dog would NEVER be outside alone.

This is like reverse discrimination. Dogs should be under control regardless of where they live to protect them also. They should be under control on a person's property. I walk my dogs as have grown older as it is safer for them and someone else's dogs not to mention other human beings. Pit Bulls are beautiful dogs, but they are also dogs. You control them to protect them and yourself also. It is much harder to blame a leashed dog, even though people do. Especially some women with children...

You control them to protect them and yourself also. It is much harder to blame a leashed dog, even though people do. Especially some women with children who can't have dogs because they already have too much to handle in life. It's something they don't have therefore, they complain and because they have children, everybody listens. It is only smarter to protect your do from others by leashing it and telling everyone to GET LOST! They should get their own dog if they want to pet one. My neighbor's Chihuahua barks more than a Doberman and sounds bigger. I bet he would clamp onto your finger harder than some Pitt Bulls, not that they are all trustworthy. Trust and ownership comes with spending time with and loving any dog.
