So how many people does this animal have to chase and/or attack before it can be euthanized? Do we need to wait until a child/adult is maimed or killed? Time for a reality check. It's a dog for goodness sakes! The constitution was written for human beings! Might sound cruel, but it's a fact!

The Humane Society in SM County is crazy and worthless. They feel killing dogs is the answer to everything no questions asked regardless of anything.

The behavior of this "Humane" Society is deplorable. They give conflicting statements, get a laugh from distressed animal owners' pleas and challenge anyone to try to get to them.
As a private non-profit group, I believe their purpose should be audited and their standing as a non-profit community-serving organization be revoked.
