Dear Editor, If you are to have a dog ranger, I believe it is cruel of you to allow them to go out and just shoot the dogs.

Dogs should not be shot at all. It is not their fault on how they are behaving.

If the owners were to look after them properly and treat them well, this kind of scene will never ever happen.

Most dogs I have seen in Raro will just sit on the side of the road watching the people and cars go by.

Dogs are man’s best friend and if you teach them well, you will be surprised by how they will look after their owners. Dogs I have known have actually saved their owner’s life.

Don’t be mean to the dogs, look after them and they will truly look after you.

What Esther Honey is doing is a good thing, trying to neuter them, and I praise them for helping the animals. Bless all the dogs and I hope people will appreciate and understand a dog’s life.
