Me, I'd answer "Bangkok" ('cause I didn't specify a US

I don't know how to search a non-law.
But for the sake of this discussion let's say the city where the deed was done did have a leash law. According to the pilgrim's OP the dog got off the leash (or at least got away from the owner that was restraining him). That does happen and happens even when the dog's owner (hate the concept of ownership of a animal) is being responsible. But let's say in this case the "owner" was somewhat irresponsible. Are you saying the irresponsible owner and the machete murderer are equally responsible for the demise of this dog?
