I just saw this story on the news:
What do you all think about putting dogs down after they have attacked someone/something, but it has not displayed a beyond-normal amount of viciousness? My reaction to this is to think that the police should not ride their horses through an off-the-leash dog park. Apparently the dog was friendly enough to get along fine with other dogs and humans, but lost his shit when he saw a horse. I don't believe the dog should be put down. The idea of justice against an animal just doesn't make sense to me, because the animal isn't aware of laws and is just being an animal, and really doesn't pose a threat if it continues to live. The owner should probably keep it on a leash though, in case any horses pop up again.
