Aggressive Dogs In Red Bird

It happened on a country road, the discolored grass stained with blood marking the spot.

"This is where she was laying at," said a witness who asked to remain anonymous.

He says she was already dead when she was first found.

"Oh yeah, she was dead, she wasn't breathing. You could look at her and tell that she wasn't breathing," he said.

"About 7 o'clock this morning I got up and shot at like 4 or 5 dogs," said Annette Panter.

She lives just down the street, and has frequently encountered aggressive stray dogs, so much so she always carries a gun.

"Always do when I mow because if it's not that it's coyote and different things so, I just shot at them again yesterday," she said.

Being as isolated as it is, she says, people routinely abandon dogs here.

"This is where everybody drops dogs off," she said.

What can we do? You start shooting dogs down here then you're going to get in trouble for animal cruelty. You know so, you can't get rid of them, you can't shoot them, you can't do nothing about it," he said.

Concern now turns to the safety of area children.

"My heart first thought of those kids," said Annette.

"Yeah, I mean, I got six kids," said the man.

Worry in Red Bird, praying a roadside tragedy doesn't happen again.

"I just, God bless her soul that this happened, cause I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone," he said.
