I know people that have these dogs have no sense letting them run free.

This is awful. It says 'dog' or 'dogs' I wonder why they can't be more specific? Those poor things would have been so scared, amazing that they believe the males protected the female.

I can't see where it says the dog or dogs have been identified, have they?



TIA

They just said on the news it was two. Those poor babies they really did a number on them. I am sure the dogs are the same size as those little horses. They did not stand a chance against them. I did not see all the news. I will watch again at 6PM and see if they know who owns the rotten creatures.

Oh yes, I am sure the dogs were. I had two mini horses and they were so tiny. The trash can was larger than the horses.
I really miss them. I feel so guilty for leaving them. I never dreamed my ex would shoot them.

I wonder if one of the dogs is a pit bull that was on the news a couple of weeks ago. It had already attacked several dogs in a trailer park neighborhood and a lady out there did an interview hoping to get something done about the thing.

You can't be serious. You had no way of knowing he'd do that I'm sure. How mean

deanws i am so sorry he did that to you and your babies. The dogs were able to be identified because one of them was chipped. They were still there when animal control arrived. They had them trapped. The owner surrendered them to be put down. A little to late.

I feel bad for the dogs too. I love animals. I think the whole situation is very sad.

This same thing happened in TN a couple of years ago. I there was a few horses killed by dogs, they were show horses (Mini) Worth alot of money. The owners of the horses were suing the owners of the dogs last I heard.

I don't know if it could have been the same dogs, but there's a rash of pitbull attacks around Lubbock. Now it's being reported that some goats have been killed by dogs.
