Neither are land mines.

Dogs are not humans.

Irrelevant!

Dogs' rights are not relevant to my point. A rabid dog loose in my neighborhood is a threat to my security, so is a child pointing a gun at me, so is a large rotting tree standing next to my house, etc.

In dealing with such threats we clearly act in self defense.

Please, at least concede that any difference we may bare is in the minutia of how we deal with such threats.
