To Donna & Mike, remind me when you get sick to put you down the same way that sick, stray dog was put down. The point being made by Kathy B. made was HOW the dog was put down. It was not necessary to inhumanely beat the dog to death. Taking it away from the public and putting it down by gunshot would have been fine.

We have been going to Tahlequah river floats for about 30 years now and our experiences have always been positive. The incident concerning the 2013 sick stray dog that was put down by the staff was probably necessary. RABIES has been on the increase people!!! Maybe the staff needed to remove the dog from the property quickly for safety reasons. Obviously, the dog became aggressive and like anyone being attacked by a rabid dog, the staff members grabbed the nearest thing for protection of themselves and their quests. I'm not saying that I don't sympathize with your experience. However, not all aspects of living can be sugar coated. So, in order to enjoy and celebrate the joy of life, we must endure sadness sometimes. This a fact of life. On another note, our experiences with the Diamondhead staff concerning dogs has been good. Strays have been around when we stayed there and were fed by the tourists and the Diamondhead staff. I am glad to see that they got TV's this year!!! We are planning a trip again May 29th to June 1st, 2014. We like the Cabin at War Eagle, but we have not decided for sure where we are staying yet. we have
