An 8-year-old girl was killed recently by a pack of dogs in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Tribal officials responded by rounding up a trailer full of stray dogs and killing them. Do you think that response was the right decision? Is that humane? How do you think animals, including pets, should be treated? Some animals are sacred in tribes across the country. Do you feel an obligation to make sure all animals are treated humanely? Is the treatment of animals a concern for you – why or why not?
