Reader: Dog shooting was wrong, but if the pets were noisy, the owner deserves punishment
Yesterday, we shared the story of Cristina Amaro, whose two small dogs, Latte and Swag, appear to have been shot to death.
The post prompted one reader to castigate such actions while at the same time stressing that owners of noisy pets need to be take responsibility for their actions.
I love dogs but I hate dog owners that let their dogs bark constantly. It is very sad that someone did this but if the dogs were a constant noise disturbance then it would make sense why a person would do this. Torture makes people do crazy things and being forced to listen to a chronic barking dog in your own residence is torture. Pet owners that allow their dogs to be a nuisance should be punished, not the pets.
