What about all the pets and animals here in the US that might have been expose too. Don't we have enough of our own rescue animals that need homes. According to the Humane Society and rescue groups there are millions of animals needing adoption here in the US. Why take the chance of exposing your pet and others here in the US?

Heck people, feel sorry for the U.S. Soldiers that have been bit by rabid dogs in Iraq. My husband and 4 other people were bitten by rabid dogs in the past week. He got 6 stitches in his face and he's up for the rest of his innoculations (so are the other people). Of course the dog was put down by the MP's before it could bite anyone else. All my husband and his guys were doing was running for PT. The dog was acting aggessive and attacked him after attacking another person on base. I don't think that it was a bad deal for that dog to be put down at all. Even when military service members make a PCS move, in some countries dogs are put into quarantine for 6 months to assure that the dog doesn't have rabies. Why isn't that the case here in this story?

How sad for that dog, but even sadder for the animals who have to be quarentined for 6 months.

How sad this must be for the serviceman who brought this dog home. I truely feel for this person and hope he/she has taken measures to ensure his or her own health. Rabies is such a terrible disease!
