Does anyone care about missing dogs?

Four Haines dogs went missing in one week and the general consensus of opinion around town, among those whom I asked, is that they were shot. The theories of attacks by wild animals or being frozen to death by the recent low temperatures are overridden by the shooting theory. But why would anyone shoot domestic animals, who represent no threat to them? I have always thought of Haines as Mayberry, R.F.D. but it now seems more like the The Twilight Zone. Does anyone have a clue about the whereabouts of these dogs? Does anyone, besides the bereaved owners, even care?
