Is spraying water on a tied up dog a proven method of cooling a dog down? I guess cold water would cool off his body, but I seriously doubt it would cool off a hot temper. In my opinion, the owner is an idiot.

A "dog" in Ohio is PC speak for pit bull. I'm shocked the pit owner decided to put it down rather than fight to get their mauler back.
