Agreed aryfrosty, you must keep your dogs contained on your property and or under your control in public.it's very clear that was not happening and nothing will come of the warrent. Another owner who got their dog killed by being irresponsible.

IT is very unlikely a 4 y.o. child has the hand strength to pull the trigger.

I am the lady that got her dog shot and we lived as family here and I took his dogs to the vet and my dogs were always welcome at his house and his at mine. I've been cleaning for this man for 4 yrs off and on and living as family and he didn't even see my dog attack his he just assumed that she did because both dogs didn't care for one another's but all our other dogs played very well together and his dog didn't undergo surgery either. His other dog pretty much lives here at my home and even the day he shot my dog his dog remained here at my home. We were close enough that he could come to me about anything but did not choose to , I can't help he is not being honest.

I certainly would not want this man for a neighbor, nor would I want to be this man. He is going to receive a lot of negative reactions to this. Why not call the authorities and have them handle it? Gun play between neighbors is never a good idea and always ends badly. He has made a lot of enemies and his name has been uploaded to the cruelty to animals website.

That lady is going to get embarrassed if she keeps whining about this. The law requires her to keep her dog under control and on HER property. The dog was on the neighbors property and he really didn't have to warn her...he could have just shot it the first time it attacked his dog. She's pretty lucky. If her dog had attacked a person or a kid she would be facing a lot of problems. Not sure why people think they can just let their dogs run loose and do what they want to. She'll end up getting sued and having to foot the legal bills for all of this.

1st I can't imagine your loss. 2nd, your desire to blame someone other than your son would be any parents desire. That doesn't change the facts. Video in slow motion is clear. KWj got out of his car, ran toward the other drivers (who never would have hit his car from their position on track), jumped on the wing on TS car causing it to swerve from the weight, then fell off the car. Tony never struck your son. Your comment states that only tony knows what happened. Well that is simply not true. Thanks to the video in hand we see it was KWj who made the first contact w Stewarts car. We see that TS would not have hit Kevin' s car had he been in it. I can only assume your pain and anguish is so great that you refuse to see at this time that your son would still be with you had he stayed in his car. Perhaps he could have even survived running toward the center of a hot race track had he not grabbed the car. We will never know. Again, I am sorry for your loss and pray that peace and enlightenment enters your heart.
