  3. It’s the owners fault for not keeping the a vicious dog inside their yard ,good job officer

  4. If that dog had attacked your child then you would be saying, why didn’t EPCSO do something about it. Yes, it’s someone’s pet and a sad loss but I would rather have a dead dog than a dead child/person.

  5. Pet owners need to be responsible in properly securing their pets in a safe enclosure, to prevent a tragic incident that could have been prevented from a frightened animal. In this case a scared dog from being killed…sad
