I doubt the Red Deer Advocate will print this, but I will say this about dog owners: there are far too many that say “my dog never bites anyone” or chases cattle or kids, or cars.
A friend of mine, who is a cattle farmer, had a neighbour whose dog was constantly chasing his cattle. Numerous phone calls were to no avail.
Once he caught and tied the large dog to a post and the neighbour still denied the possibility.
Finally the neighbour told my friend that he should shoot offending dog and he would not mind because it was not his dog.
Two days later, my friend shot the dog when it was chasing his cattle.
He called the neighbour to inquire about his dog. The neighbour replied that his dog was in the barn. Strange how no one ever saw the dog again.
