Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

went look­ing for them but af­ter 10 min­utes we had not heard a thing. Af­ter about half an hour of look­ing we found that both dogs had made their way up the walk­way to a house and they had killed sev­eral chick­ens. As a con­sci­en­tious dog owner this is a truly aw­ful thing to have to go through.

Both dogs are cur­rently in the pound and we don’t know what will hap­pen to them. While I am an ad­vo­cate of al­low­ing dogs to use the walk­way I would never have given my dog the op­por­tu­nity to get into this sit­u­a­tion if I had known that this would be the out­come.

I have talked to the owner of the chick­ens and sadly this is not the first time this has hap­pened. If any­thing can be gained from this it is that other dog own­ers are made aware that there are houses along the walk­way, and the beach, that have poul­try and they must en­sure their dogs don’t pose a threat to them or they could end up in our po­si­tion, and they don’t want that.
