Letters: Well done, RCMP

When it comes it hurting someone, then action must be taken.

Re: Pit Bull’s death questioned (Letters, Aug. 7).

Thank you, to the police, for removing another threat from the community. Credit to them for taking action.

Granted, not all pit bulls are the same, but when it comes it hurting someone then action must be taken.

What if it had locked onto the face of a three-year-old in the park and left the infant in intensive care and disfigured, because the dog had that potential, as we saw.

Who cares how it died. Stop wasting time and money further investigating this.

The owner admitted the dog was getting more and more aggressive, it wasn’t properly secured and the owner did nothing to help. It she was my daughter that got attacked, I’d be at the house talking to the owner.

Anyhow, well done and my hope the teenager is OK.

Who cares

A pitt bull is trying to rip a 15-year-old girl’s arm off.

Who cares how it was killed?
