I think it cost about around the same or more here to train guide dog and it is a felony to harm or kill a service dog. Mini horses are being trained to help blind people as horses have a longer life span . I hope the owner of the dogs has to pay the cost . My heart goes out to the young man . Losing my hearing dog to cancer was heartbreaking . I still miss him terrible . This story is so tragic and should never had happen.
