That is disgusting. The pictures are horrific. I don't know how much of a difference I can make since I'm not in that area but I am definitely going to contact whoever I can to help.

The guy who did this is a monster and if you search it you can see that three dogs in total in that area have been attacked with a machete!

Wow... that's horrible.

But the bottom line is if you don't want your dog to be a dead dog you have to keep it on your property, off the street, and out of yards where they are not welcome.

The "bottom line" is it is barbaric, monstrous and definitely cruelty to hack a dog to death with a machete.

Without a doubt and not the method of dispatching a dog I would choose... it is however not illegal with the key words "afraid for my life" which is the do what you gotta do clause. It throws cruelty out the window as he didn't lure the dog, there apparently were no witnesses to say otherwise, and the dog was wandering, admittedly not the first time out of the yard.

Nothing will happen to this guy - because in the eyes of the law he did nothing wrong and IMHO a person should have the ability to defend themselves against a dog on their property using whatever they have at hand if the need comes up.

I know people who shoot any straying dog that wanders on their property even if they've never seen that dog before. I also know someone who will pump your dog up with bear mace for getting within six feet of them while they're jogging even if your dog is just happy to see them. Not everyone loves dogs nor welcomes them into their life and in the end it's the owners responsibility to keep their dog in their yard.

I highly doubt he feared for his life. He had time to run into his house, grab a weapon and run back out. Then not only did he not attack the dog in his own yard he chased it down and hacked it up across the street from where he lives. If the animal is running away from you *most of the cuts were on the dogs back and hindquarters. those were also the deepest* and you have to literally chase it down. Your life is not in danger.

I live in the country where a lot of people shoot dogs that wander. They kill chickens and other smaller farm animals. But I guess in my eyes shooting and killing an animal in one shot is waaaaaaaay different than chasing one down with a machete and stab/slashing it 4 times and then letting it hobble off to die.

Also there has been a total of 3 dogs in that neighborhood who have shown up with machete wounds. It doesn't sound like this is a first time thing.

I can't help but kind of agree with Kat09tails on this. Horrific? yes. Is the guy a monster? most definitely. But the owner shoulders some responsibility here.

Very unfortunate for the dog.

Living near someone who I know has this history of machete weilding... I'd be taking extra extra extra precaution to keep my dog contained to my property.

ARGH... in the video about the incident they still show him walking down the street with his other dog not on leash. WTF?

Absolutely agree.

Should you do your best to keep your dog contained? Absolutely.

But this guy . . . actions like this bespeak "neighborhood psycho." If I were walking in that neighborhood, I'd damnsure be packing.

This guy has a history of hacking dogs up with a machete. And the fact that he went back outside after getting his machete and approached the dog instead of calling police doesn't really jive with the "afraid for his life" argument. Why in the heck would you approach a dog if you're afraid for your life, especially if the only weapon you have is hand to hand and not a firearm.

He sounds like a psycho who likes hacking animal up. And probably hates dogs, or dogs pooping in his yard and is trying to find ways to get away with it.
