Thanks for the story about these psycho dogs (“Dog Days,” 11/23). I have been an animal lover all my life, but these dogs consistently terrorize people, mauling and killing dogs, toddlers, grown-ups…whatever comes in their path and without any provocation! Their erratic, horrific, violent behavior probably might have served someone well in the old days (if you needed a beast to protect the ranch and kill bears), but not today, and not in urban areas. There are too many other nice animals that need to be adopted that won’t eat toddlers at the drop of a hat.
