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?

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?

Some dogs have to go to the bathroom. Don't yours?

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.

These monsters must be mauled untill they learn what they did.

Too many people here are placing the blame on the victim dog's owner. In many places around the world it is not unusual for a dog to live outside for the majority of their lives. Many guardian and herding dogs have never been inside a building. If there wasn't a solid fence around his yard protecting his dog is a different scenario. The biggest problem here is how the owner of the suspect dogs has handled them and their training, or lack of training. This is a breed with a powerful jaw,...

Too many people here are placing the blame on the victim dog's owner. In many places around the world it is not unusual for a dog to live outside for the majority of their lives. Many guardian and herding dogs have never been inside a building. If there wasn't a solid fence around his yard protecting his dog is a different scenario. The biggest problem here is how the owner of the suspect dogs has handled them and their training, or lack of training. This is a breed with a powerful jaw, there are so many document attacks and fatalities caused by this breed, but yet this can also be one of the most loyal and loving of breeds. I doubt that this owner put any time into them other than to perhaps growl and lunge at people that are in the vicinity. It sounds like the suspect dogs were basically kept as "junkyard dogs", and they have formed their own family, their own pack. This pack needs to be stopped before they kill again.

RIP Buddi, being an owner of staffie'ss I bet Buddi put up a fight even at 10 years of age...... good on him :) feel sorry those attacking dogs have an owner that clearly hates animals otherwise these guys would be good dogs! and two of them wouldn't be dead at the hands of a animal lover and good owner who had no choice.......... it must be heartbreaking.

prosecute the owners! Imprison them and ban them from ever owning dogs! It is their actions that cause this, don't blame the dogs!

As a person who went to a similar ordeal, with two dangerous dogs in the neighbourhood that killed many of the community's cats, including my one year old rescue cat, I certainly agree with the claims of this petition.
