    Jerks. There have better been a good reason for murdering a family’s pets.

    That’s what happens when you don’t keep your dogs at home.

      Wow, what a uncalled for remark. Animals get loose and sometimes leave the yard/farmplace. Even so, there was NO excuse to murder two dogs that do not resemble wild animals.

      Wow. When my neighbors dog gets loose, I pet it, play w/ it and then bring it back to him. Never considered shooting it. How idiotic.

    Don’t be a jerk Mr. B Hanson. If those dogs weren’t bothering anybody or anything there is no reason for someone to shoot them. Maybe I should come and sit just off the property line for your land and if you have animals just go ahead and kill them as soon as they cross the line. Maybe you are the one that committed this heartless act and if that’s the case, you may not be charged for the murder of the dogs but you at least should be sited for firing a weapon from the roadway cuz that’s what you would have had to do to kill the dogs. Moron.
