Tame animals cannot survive in the wild

killing innocent animals Last year, it was chickens that were thrown away down our street, and left for coyote bait. The problem is, all the dogs were chasing, and yes, killing them. Now it's cats and kittens.
   Don't you people realize that domesticated and tame animals cannot survive in the wild?
   Yes, you know who you are. Not only are you killing innocent animals, you are teaching our dogs to kill. They really don't mean to, but they love the chase.
   So next time you think of "dropping" your animals/pets off, please remember this: You are destroying ours! We happen to love ours.
   I hope this letter doesn't fall on deaf ears ... most likely it will.
