In regard to an Aug. 8 article by Tara Garcia Mathewson, I found the story very disturbing. I was sad that the little poodle died, but I was also sad that the Elgin police could not find other ways than shooting and killing dogs for what they call aggressive behavior.
Why can't they tranquilize the dogs and find out why they act the way they do?
Be advised that not all pit bulls or other breeds are bad. Please give them a break.
