Fact: The parish, where the event occured, has a long-standing leash ordinance that states one must have animals restrained/contained at all times be it by leash, tie-out, fence, or inside the home; at no time can the dog be free of physcial restraint/containment. Event: Dog A was loose in its own front yard when Dog B, a neighboring dog, wandered over. Dog B attacked Dog A, which happened to be a much smaller dog, and Dog A died from its injuries. Result: Dog B's owner has since had his dogs confiscated by the local A.C., has been fined, has been the subject of a "news investigation", and has now been suspended from his job, which is that of a city police officer. My opinion: Dog B's owner should indeed have paid a hefty monetary fine for his violating the local leash ordinance. Since the dogs were out loose on more than one occasion, I have no problem with him being forced to turn the dogs over. However, Dog A's owner should have also been forced to pay a hefty monetary fine for her violation of the local leash ordinance. And IMO, she has no claim to financial reimbursement to cover he dog's veterinary bills (although there has not even been any evidence put forth that shows she brought the dog to a veterinarian. in that case, an animal cruelty charge should go with the leash ordinance fine.). And I have an issue with me being told there is nothing to be done about my neighbors dogs since they are not able to catch them out loose by the time they arrive (the dogs are loose outside when the owners are piddling about outside, but the owners don't give 2 you-know-whats about where the dogs go), however, they confiscated Dog B and another dog straight from the backyard. Neither dog was found roaming loose by the actual A.C. officer. So....A.C. has no issues confiscating these two dogs based on heresay, while I have photographic and video proof, and I''m still told nothing can done.
