dog killers running loose

It seems that someone in Sussex county has decided to be the judge and jury in a  neighborhood just outside of Delmar/Laurel area. In the past month, two dogs have been murdered within site of their homes in the Robinhood Road area, off of Whitesville/ Gumboro road. These dogs have been shot with a small caliber gun and the shots are in the neck and chest area. This victim was kept by a couple and she works at the vets office, so all resources are being used to find out who did this. The Delaware State police have been notified as well as the SPCA. I know there are dog laws, license and rules on being restrained, we live in the country and are surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land, but these dogs are within site of their homes when murdered. Someone is randomly shooting kids and family pets, and I hope they are caught and pay the price.


  1. As a resident of the above mentioned area, I know the SPCA is investigating, as they have talked with me about it. However, from what I understand, one of the dogs had become a neighborhood problem. The owner was notified that the dog chases bicyclers, scares runners, and people walking through the area. This particular dog is never on a chain or fenced in. Clearly a local violation. I don't agree that the dog should have been shot. But, if the dog terrified someone with a short fuse, this may be the way they handled it.

    I don't understand the last sentence in this posting? It states "Someone is randomly shooting kids...." Could you clarify that.

  2. the kids family pets, I am an idiot.

  3. This person when caught should be punished to the full extent of the law.
