    THere needs to be a list of irresponsible pet owners and animal abusers. Nobody on that list should be able own a pet or be resposnible for anyone else’s pets. I have said this before, the dog license should be a TEST on the OWNER to pass 100% of questions.

    Hmmmm…… lots of sightings and attacks yesterday and now they’ve disappeared without a trace.

    It would appear that these dogs are being hidden. Wonder when they will escape to carry on their rampage.
