Doggone bad luck for the late night intruder

MOULTRIE — A killer who wiped out a Colquitt County man’s rabbit pen was caught red handed when he became stuck in one of the rabbit’s cages and was unable to escape.

Duncan Sinclair, of the 500 block of Minisee Road, called the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday after discovering his rabbits had been killed by a dog.

Sinclair told police that his dogs were barking at something at about midnight the previous night but he did not check because of the late hour. When he checked the rabbit shed where the rabbits were kept at about noon Saturday he found rabbits had been killed.

When a deputy arrived the large dog was trapped inside one of the cages, sheriff’s reports said.

Sinclair asked several of his neighbors about the dog, but none claimed ownership of the animal. The Humane Society of Colquitt County removed the dog.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
