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.

Lisa Wallace - Lisa - did you NOT read that Buddi was asleep, in HIS yard, in HIS kennel at 3am ... I rest my case.

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?

With all due respect to this petitioner, my hackles get raised when I see a petition or legislation regarding "dangerous dogs". The animals are not to blame here. The only one(s) who should be held accountable are the irresponsible caretakers. For this reason, I will not be signing this petition until it is reworded to take action against the OWNERS and NOT the dogs.

Agree.. I was torn between signing and not signing, as the petition did include taking action against the owner, yet they have this line too right above the link,
"Justice for Buddi - demand that Lake Macquarie Council take action on Dangerous dogs!."

That line alone decided for me that i will not be signing the petition.
Sorry to the petitioner. :(

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?

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.

Irresponsibility AGAIN on the parts of those supposed to be CAREgivers... if this is supposed to be a demonstration of caring, I would not want to see this person's version of NOT caring. A travesty. RIP Buddi.

They are evil people that is dangerous for the dogs, and.

I'd have killed those aggressive bastards with a pencil, if necessary, to defend myself and my dog! Mr. Smith is to be commended for his actions! People already KNOW to not let their dogs roam free or be "kept" in a yard/enclosure from which they can escape. They are also generally aware (and often PROUD) when their dogs are aggressive. They usually blame the victim! Outrageous! Civil penalty time!

Blessings and comfort to the family - the children who were at home. BUDDI will always be with you - "only a thought away"...."closer than breathing" - at peace now in her spirit life. Nothing can ever break the loving bond between you - you have only to think of her, and she knows. I'm sure her tail is wagging so happily! God Bless Buddi and you, her family...

Dog owners should be responsible not the dogs they own,,,,Some dog owners are instigating dogs to fight and be violent...They should not be allowed to have dogs,,They should be put down not the dog...I would suggest to have them castrated and that will make others think twice ...
