I think I might have also reacted out of rage. Does that fall under "temporary insanity"? It's a shame but I can understand his reaction.

In all honesty, I can't say I blame the man for doing what he did even though I know it's morally wrong. My dogs are my family and I would be absolutely devastated if my friends decided to kill them for food.

They killed the dog for food? Why doesn't Putin try feeding his people instead of charging this guy with murder.

He had to be insane to do what he did. Seeing a love one killed can do that to you.

I hope the courts take in consideration he was temporarily insane, and he did call the police and turn himself in. But this is Russia-----

I seriously can't imagine how I would react. If the same thing had been happening to my children I know I might have done the same thing and some people feel exactly the same way about their pets.

wow, the guy reacted quite violenty and rashly when he saw the dog being mauled. I would think most people would see red if that happened. But to kill the guys? It sounded like he was sorry and he did call the police. What a sad story all around. I wonder if his friends were starving or this was just a mean act?

Different country, and different rules. If someone would kill a dog for food (let's say it was mine), I have to admit I might initially react the same way and do some serious harm to the culprit. AND, I would feel justified. This being said, I also have not had to do without food enough so I would even think of eating a dog. So, .... who's to say what is right and wrong here. I don't agree with murder of dogs or humans on a usual basis, but I have never had to go hungry (thank my Sweet Jesus).

An eye for an eye. Until we are all blind. I can't understand the hunger that would cause a person to kill a dog for a meal but it must be awful. This is sad for everyone involved and must reach out to more of the community.

I agree with Reemmy! Temporary insanity plea works for everything else. I catch someone eating my dog I would go ballistic.

I would have done the same thing...I mean, what kind of "friends" are they if they can't say, "Hey, man, we're really hungry, would you mind giving us a little something to eat?" No, let's skip that, let's just eat his pet.

Sorry.
Don't feel bad for them at all.

Imagine you leave your kid at home with the babysitter.
You come home, and the babysitter tells you that she got hungry, so she hacked up baby Johnny and made some stew.
Wouldn't you be a BIT pissed off?

Or am I the only one who considers my pets to be my babies?

I understand he was mad about his dog, but it wasn't worth him going to jail for.

I hate to think of anyone eating my dog or cat. But I guess they do in other countries. I think what he did was payback. Too bad he has to be punished for it. He was just defending his home.

That's sad. I would hate to be in that guys shoes come home to find my friends killing my dog for food. I dont think he should get in trouble I mean after all they were in his yard and killed his dog they shouldn't have been there.

I would consider this as temporary insanity. I mean, if you saw your own friends murdering your pet and there was a weapon nearby its fairly likely you'd hurt them. I can't judge the guy because I love my pets so much I'd do anything...

This is one of those stories where you have to try to put yourself in the person's shoes. I don't know if I'd go as far as killing them, but it's surprising how close one can get with their pet.

Absolutely no one wins on this one. How tragic. Seems like they should have stole food before killing their "friend's" dog.

What a strange situation. I would be enraged if my "freinds" killed and ate my pet too. I couldn't kill them but I think I would throw some punches or something at them.

I can understand the man's anger at his friends, but that does not justify murdering them.
