    My dogs were poisoned and one is kept on a tie-out, in otehrwords the poinson had to be placed within her reach. We live in the country and most folks don't keep their dogs up. There are 9 dogs missing in my area as I type this and we are terrified to even let our dogs out. We think we know who it doing it, we just can't catch them red-handed. But this is not over yet! My dogs are my kids and this is wrong, no matter what the dog has done!

    To fed up -- GOOD FOR YOU! I love your comment and totally agree with you. Robert was not focusing on the what happened but very eager to blame the pet owner himself.

    Animals feel pain just as a the person who did this.I hope he feels pain someday.If a pet bothers one.he should tell the owner first.This is a terrible thing for a person to do.I am sorry for the pet that died,Animals are mostly friendly and trusting.I hope the one who did this has to work in vet's office and see what a coward he was and learn how to be kind.

    To Robert and others like him: Don't assume the dogs were loose. If you would take the time to search for additional information, you would know the dogs were poisoned in their yards. Stop blaming every pet owner for your problems. I'm sure you wouldn't want someone trespassing on your property and causing harm just because your pets or children (or God forbid, you)did something to upset your neighbors. Since you're so indignant about others' pets, you are probably very concerned about your own property rights, correct? Besides, a dog (or cat)running free does not entitle anyone to harm it unless done in genuine self defense. If there is a problem call the owner or animal control. Be an adult and act civilized.

    Were the dogs in a kennel? Did the owner have them tied up or fenced in? Dogs, no matter how well they are taken care of like to get into other peoples trash while it is outside waiting to be picked up! I am not familiar with the area that these animals are located but my guess is that they were not fenced in because no one would purposely open a fence and set down a bowl of food with Anitfreeze but if the animals werent locked up then probably someone who got tired of picking up shreds of thier garbabge had all they could take! I dont know if that is what happened but if sounds like a good possibility

    The story about the dogs being poisoned didn't tell us what part of town this happened in and we were wondering about that, as we have dogs. Please tell everyone were, so we can all look out for our pets! Thanks

    The story doesn't specify, but if the dogs were running loose, the owner should be charged. It is past time for pet owners to realize that it is there responsibility to keep their pet up. Other people DON'T want someone elses pet.
