The reason why I would like to comment on the story being reported out of Michigan is for personal reasons. I live in a nice gated community and presently have great neighbors. But having great neighbors was not always the case. A few years ago, I had neighbors who would let their pit bulls out of the yard. By 'let' I do not mean they let them roam free; instead, they would not keep their side gate closed and the dogs would get out. The neighbors knew this and still refused to fix their fence. That is, until one day I fixed it for them (by nailing it shut) after one of the dogs got out and chased a little old lady up and down the street. I had to force the dog back into its backyard with a shovel. Scary stuff, especially since I have two young children.
