Letter To The Editor About Doggie Bus

Dear Editor:
The article in last week’s paper about hauling dogs to Bozeman is plain stupid.
The road map tells me it is more than 400 miles to Bozeman. I don’t think that anyone can afford to haul a bunch of unwanted dogs that far.
The bus you talk about will probably get 15 miles to the gallon (gas), so a round trip will be more than 800 miles, which amounts to more than 53 gallons. What is the driver of the bus going to get? This is a two-day trip. Where is he/she going to stay?
I believe that there are ways to prevent these unwanted dogs. There are clinics every spring and summer to prevent these unwanted pets.
If the people have fertile male and female pets, why are they allowed to run the streets or does a “dog tag” give them a license to run everywhere?
Get real, people. If you can’t feed and care for these dogs, then don’t have them.
Does anyone else feel this way? What happened to common sense?
