Dog killed

There is nothing wrong with the New Hampshire law that allows a landowner to kill a dog on their property that is “worrying” their animals. The problem is entirely on the shoulders of the dog owners who did not have the dog on a leash or contained within their yard. They seem to have broken that law! By the time the dog would have had the rabbit in its mouth, as suggested by the dog owner, it would have been too late for the rabbit! Several years ago, two dogs came into my yard in the early morning hours and terrorized my rabbits. The cost to me was nearly $400 for my rabbits as their feet were severely lacerated trying to escape the dogs attempting to get into their hutch. As a long time dog owner, I feel sorry for the dog for the irresponsible behavior of the dog owner.

Disgraceful

We have another politician showing his disinterest in doing his job. I was disappointed when Bill Galvin wanted to wait until after the election to look into a clear case of voter fraud. Obviously this was going to affect the results so it should have been looked into before the election. Now we learn the extent of his looking into it was to read the newspaper article in which the accused denied wrongdoing. Are you serious, Bill? Why don’t we eliminate the court system and all the jails because all of the people in them said they didn’t do it? What a joke you are! Why bother with elections? We’ll just put in whichever unqualified friend of Willie’s who wants a job and then we can pull you out of his back pocket to rubber stamp it if someone objects. You are a disgrace.
