Louie didn’t get sec­ond chance

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Louie was the beau­ti­ful com­pan­ion dog that was at­tacked by two pit­bull mix dogs and had to be eu­th­a­nized as a re­sult of his in­juries. After an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the RCMP and the Hu­mane So­ci­ety, the Guardian re­ported that the pit­bull­type dogs would be given a sec­ond chance.

I ask you where was Louie’s sec­ond chance? He didn’t even have a chance to try and get away from them as he was tied up in his own yard as these dogs came onto his prop­erty and vi­ciously at­tacked him. One of the listed re­quire­ments the owner must fol­low states these dogs must wear a muz­zle when out and about; well what if they get out ac­ci­den­tally or get free of the muz­zle, will it be an­other dog they at­tack or a tod­dler/child or per­son.

The old say­ing goes, if they at­tack once they will at­tack again. There is some­thing very wrong with this pic­ture and it should be made right. Carolyn Payn­ter, Char­lot­te­town
