Rash of Missing Dogs

Numerous dogs have gone missing in the Reservoir area.  And while dogs will inevitably run off, it is the opinion of some concerned readers that there have been an inordinate amount in recent times. Evidence of this can be gleaned from any number of Facebook pages created for our Reservoir community.  A recently solved case of a missing dog highlights a disturbing motive:

A St. Bernard went missing from a fenced yard in the Lake Harbor subdivision. Luckily, witnesses saw the abduction and reported it to authorities.  Information obtained from the witnesses led authorities to a home in the Bridgetowne Subdivision, where the dog was recovered.  The motive was to "rescue" the dog from perceived poor living conditions.  Good intentions aside, taking the dog constitutes larceny, and, from what I understand, Animal Control found no evidence the dog had been mistreated by its owners.

Anyone else seeing evidence of this?

Lost dog signs are posted regularly in Harbor View and there sure seem to have been more lately.

There is nothing worse than "Do Gooder Animal Rescuers" aka, pyschotic housewife with too much time on her hands. I am wary of anyone who breaks the law in the name of it. Kind of like those wayward Christians.

You're right. You would never see a atheist biggot doing something like that.

Dog thieves! I will enjoy seeing them go to jail for theft and trespassing.
