Newfoundlands Are Gentle: The Highline Times / Des Moines News
"I would like to comment on the recent incident where the Des Moines police gunned down a Newfoundland dog.
I understand the dog has escaped from its yard and was loose in traffic.
The dog was tasered and chased and ultimately shot to death 4 times.
I think this is absolutely horrific.
Newfoundland dogs are gentle and sweet by nature. It is very possible this dog gave the police a 'submissive grin', which looks like a dog is growling.
Why not call animal control? Why hunt the dog down mercilessly and kill it like a bunch of crazed animals themselves? Why not a tranquilizer gun?
The Newfoundland dog world is watching this and is horrified.
We hope you will put this atrocity on the news and launch an investigation in to why this happened."
