Why? Because it was defending it's home? I'd buy the dog a bone... with meat on it.

It clearly states that the dog was confined to it's own backyard. If the parent of this child were the owner they would have mentioned it, but obviously the child wasn't in her own backyard. The thing that people need to remember is that these dogs are highly loyal and extremely defensive of what they consider theirs.
