Jennifer Chandlee and her husband, Chris, from Salem, were vacationing at Detroit Lake when 3 PIT BULLS came out of nowhere and jumped on top of their beloved Lab Mix "ELSIE" killing her. 
“She was like my kid. She went everywhere with me,”  
The pit bulls’ owner, Kevin Berquist of Eagle Creek, was cited with a misdemeanor charge on Thursday but will be able to keep the dogs.
Chandlee questioned why animal control won’t take the pit bulls from Berquist, especially since her dog is the second one they have killed.
Marion County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Chris Baldridge said that they went in and the dogs were not a threat to anyone. They were contained. The dog was still alive and on the way to a hospital,”  
Meanwhile, the Chandlees said they fear the dogs that killed their pet and another can and will do it again.
“Just horrific and terrifying to see,” said Jennifer Chandlee.

So because their poor little pet lived long enough to make it to the vet the maulers and their nutter just get a free pass? That is insane. And so what if they were contained? Either they get free on their own or their nutter lets them rampage around on purpose. I'm sure this is another case of them 'somehow' getting out. Ridiculous.

So sad another dear pet was needlessly sacrificed to these mutants.

it makes me sick with rage to think about the last moments this sweet old dog experienced.

BTW, someone in that neighborhood might eventually get a dog that can stand up to these pit bulls and win. Won't that be interesting?

It is unforgivable.

how absolutely disgusting! That man needs to never be allowed to have dogs again and those dogs need to be put down. Elsie looks so much like my dearly departed Maddy and I am literally sick to my stomach thinking of her poor last moments. I wish I'd been there with my .22!

Anonymous 4:31... I wish you had, too. The dog in the photo just looks like such a sweetheart. The dogs that killed her were evil.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss of Maddy.
