It is horrible. When we ride, the person in the lead jumps off the horse so fast, and scares the dog away...or on the beach one time, my horse kicked a would-be attacking dog in the head. That dog learned it's lesson about attacking horses. At any rate, you don't want to be on a horse when it's being attacked. Dangerous all around.

I am fed up with discrimination of poor defenceless animals.Let Charlie go home and DO NOT kill him.He has done nothing wrong.he was in an unleashed dog park.
The stupid cop was at fault not Charlie.

This wouldn't be happening if Charlie were a beagle. Any misstep by a "pit bull like dog" and the situation won't end happily.

The dog has never showed violence and was scared by the horse. Criminals get off easier than the dogs do. Let Charlie go home, he doesn't deserve to die.

so where is the petition & contact info?
animals will be animals. train police and horses better, make the owner train the dog better and get the dog use to other animals. no dog should be euthanized for this - he was curious and things got out of control by horse, dog and policeman. fine the owner, train better all,man kind murder children and they get a life sentence! this dog did nothing so serious as murder a human child.

This dog was scared, not vicious. I am saddened to read about this especially in a forward thinking city like San Francisco.

He was in a dog park not a horse park. I am really tired of innocent dogs being killed. We are over protected from so-called vicious dogs but if you want to buy a gun and kill a bunch a people, well, no problem. Our priorities are really skewed here in America. Poor innocent Charlie.

Where does humanity get off killing a dog when we are the most violent species on the planet?
