The mauling of a 14 year-old boy by guard dogs is a tragedy for our community.
Our prayers go out to the victim who is in the hospital and to his family – the Marchettis.
We hope that our city officials will take the time and do their homework in finding a solution so that this tragedy will not happen again.
The owner of these dogs is above reproach. He was only safeguarding his business.
The victim loved animals and these dogs seemed docile.
The two dogs have been euthanized.
We know that there is no easy solution.
But we know that the easy solution of banning guard dogs is not the answer.
