In Your Opinion: Huskies' owner has share of blame

This is an open letter to Carol Mahoney, whose two beautiful huskies were shot to death.

As an animal lover, especially dog lover, my heart goes out to you. I’ve had dogs my whole life and know how it feels to lose one. They’re members of your family and you love them with all your heart. You make sure they receive the required inoculations, like you would your children. You make sure they eat the best food, have their nails trimmed and get bathed regularly, just like your children.

The one thing you didn’t do was keep them confined to your yard, like you would have done for your children. Your beautiful dogs were allowed to run free and get into trouble. YOU, Carol Mahoney, were just as much to blame for their death as was the insensitive individual who shot them! This is something you will have to live with the rest of your life!
