Who is to blame for dog shooting?

Ray Brooks

Dear Editor,

We are living in a time of unprecedented deception, illusion and extremism.

If you make it look good, sound good or highly sensationalistic, then it must be good!

A dog was shot because people failed to do their job: the owners, the absent animal control officer and then the person who had to make the final judgement. Who is to blame?

A commissioned officer in the military has the bottom line directive: “to take human life on behalf of the nation.”

The nation had better have an impeccable moral lifestyle or face dire consequences. We, in our choices, actions and beliefs, must learn that we also face consequences. It is always what is precious and innocent that will pay the price. That is what it costs us.
