what is the correct danling modifier sentence
this is it: Foaming at the mouth,the dog warden had the stray put to sleep
This could be a misplaced, rather than a dangling, modifier because the word modified is in the sentence. Usually with dangling modifiers, you must ADD an omitted word to the sentence. You could say "The dog warden had the stray, foaming at the mouth, put to sleep," matching the phrase to the proper word modified. Still, this is a poor construction. You would do better simply to reconstruct the sentence---Because the stray was foaming at the mouth, the dog warden had it put to sleep."
