    Why do people keep dogs who kill pets? Should the dog be put to sleep?

    Neighbours dog killed all their pets twice now whilst being left outside whilst owners out. Also 18 months ago, one came over our 1800mm fence and killed my young daughters pet bantams.

    There are some people out there who are very uneducated and irresponsible pet owners. They clearly don't understand that you can't just keep pets for the fun of having them, you have to put in effort to keep them safe, happy, and well cared for.

      I agree with you on that note. A pet should have a secure place to be kept instead of being allowed to run around where ever it pleases. I love my pets and I keep them safe. When they are not in the house with me, they have a fenced area outside.

    For some people, having a dog they know will kill is a selling point. They are misguided in keeping the animal for a pet, but they believe this animal will kill to protect them.

    More often than not, the animal kills their own pets before it moves to human prey. These owners are the ones who keep the dogs in a frenzied state, which makes them more prone to attack.

    Unfortunately, we have laws against putting the owners to sleep, but the dogs should be put down. The owners should be prosecuted, not just for the destruction of property, but for the treatment of the animal who dies because of their twisted idea of what a pet is.

    I love my dogs and I really hate it when you have to a dog down but really? When a dog kills an animal, especially that many there is a violent streak and who knows when it will attack a innocent human. What if it's a child next?

    So, yes I believe that the dog should be put down if it has killed other pets.
