Letter to the Editor
I would like to thank the Hearne Animal Control Officer, Ben Spiller, for his quick response last Thursday evening.
That evening I encountered a black pitbull in my chicken house. Upon inspection he had killed all of my chickens. The officer found whom the dog belonged to and full restitution was made for my loss.
In the past 10 years I have had seven instances of chickens, pigs, and shetland pony being killed or damaged by pitbull dogs, six times by pitbulls and once by a Doberman.
Five times these dogs have killed or damaged kids show pigs for the county show. They even attacked my granddaughters shetland pony that died from loss of blood.
If those dogs ever get the taste of blood your child may be next.
