    Are you for real? The theme of this thread is not responsible pet ownership. It was a distressed pet owner who loves her family dog but the dog has showed signs of aggression and now has killed an animal. She has children. She's being a good mother and putting their safety first by getting the much loved dog out of their home to prevent a potential attack on her children. That's what this discussion is about. Go and start a thread on responsible pet ownership if that's what you want to post about.

    No this thread is about an unforeseen event. Shes doing exactly what a responsible pet owner would do and removing the dog to prevent any future problems.

    Responsible? Yes the op is responsible. Her pets were well cared for, loved, fed and up to date with vaccinations. She has also done the right thing and has got the ranger picking the dog up now to protect her family and her other cats. So yeah she is a responsible pet owner but obviously you have the complete opposite idea of the op and are not talking about that are you?

    Instead you are turning this thread into a debate of responsible pet ownership when the op needs support and advice. Pretty sure her and her kids are going through enough without having the massive guilt trip put on her by a couple of people who show no compassion for her terrible situation.

    I'm glad the ranger was helpful and can take him off your hands OP. I really think this is the best solution
    You'd do it out of town, most likely on a property.
    We're rural as well, the vet is often out of town (a lot of medical service people travel to the much smaller towns to provide as many people with services as possible), our own vet is over an hour away. There are no shelters around here that I know of, just the pound. Sometimes shooting a dog is the best option (especially if they've been hurt or bitten by a snake). They usually arn't scared, they don't know what a gun is, and no one would attempt it without being a decent shot.
    It's sad, but it's sometimes for the best.

    Jagamoe I'm really sorry to hear your family is going through such a hard time, good luck with it all, I'm glad the ranger can help you

    I think you're being incredibly rude, judgemental and narrow minded.

    The OP has given plenty of explanations about why money is so tight at the moment. It's a dreadful situation and quite frankly I think you're deliberately baiting the OP.

    As has been said previously, if money is so easy to come by for you, give the OP some of YOUR money. Otherwise, take a step back, stop being so nasty and go on your merry way.

    I was just trying to point out that there aren't necessarily special rules for rural as animal cruelty laws vary from state to state and laws regarding companion animals - and I'd imagine uninjured ones - are covered by different and stricter laws. Before shooting a companion animal that isn't injured I believe it's best to check first. I've got many rural family members and none would shoot a healthy pet but have rehomed if needed. I don't believe the OP would have either, I think she was understandably speaking out of emotion without having time to sit and think first.

    Can she take you out for a cuppa while she's with you? Sounds like you need a bit of help right now. Don't worry about the comments, please. You have more than enough on your plate. You've done the right thing x
