Family Wants Answers On Why Their Pets Were Shot

By KJ Mullins     Oct 21, 2007 in Lifestyle
An Uxbridge family wants to know how a farmer could have shot their pets legal or otherwise. They received word on Saturday that their beloved pets, Casey and Sunny were killed from an animal control officer. An unnamed farmer was responsible.
The act was legal in accordance to the livestock act that states if an animal is running loose and attacking or viciously pursuing other animals a farmer may terminate it.
The Jenkins family though would like some answers on the matter. Their pets took off on Thursday and apparently ended up on the farmer's property. The family is curious to know how the farmer could think their pets who in their words won't hit a fly were considered to be dangerous by the farmer.
"A Golden retriever is a far cry from a coyote or a groundhog," said John Jenkins, the dogs' owner. "These are family pets, this impacts people's lives."
The family thinks that the farmer should have called animal control and are demanding to know the name of the one responsible for their pets demise.
