Dog owners should follow the law

To the Editor:

Last week’s Enterprise had a story about a dog being shot while it was killing a duck. The lady who owned the dog is saying she would like to change the law about shooting animals.

Why didn't she license her dog and have a collar on it or a leash as the town of New Scotland animal-control law requires? Dogs are not allowed to roam free in the town.

If she owns five acres, as stated in the article, why didn't she fence in an area so the dog could run? I feel bad that she lost a family pet but it’s not right to blame someone else for something you do that's wrong!

We have a dog; it has a collar and a license tag along with his rabies tag and, when he's outside, he's on a leash. That’s the law!
