Georgia Girl, 9, Hospitalized After Dog Attack
#1 Apr 21, 2012
every owner claim their dog is safe, their dog has never bitten/barked//growled/looked the wrong way at anyone before. most of the time, these cases involve a family pet attacking their own children, unexpectedly. there is also always a group who claim pitbulls are less aggressive than dalmatians or chihuahuas -- there may be some truth to that despite statistical evidence that condemns certain breeds in serious/fatal attacks.
the good news is, there is a simple solution to the growing problem dog attacks on children. criminalise the events that lead to the attack (ie. letting dogs roam the streets uncontrolled), and make the owners criminally liable for the injury their pets inflict. this doesn't ensure the problem goes away altogether, but it would go a million miles toward discouraging people from keeping pets that are a known, likely risk of these attacks. also, enforcing spaying pets (for anyone not holding a breeders licence) would greatly help the issue of stray animals, while curbing the number of backyard breeders of dangerous breeds.
