    Default Dog attack in london

    Just read about this poor woman who was killed by the dog in London. Shocking the owner should be charged for this. Not keeping a dog under control is bad and its bad enough having to deal with irrisponsable peoples pets when in public places but to be attacked at your own home is not on.

    These animals should not be kept if there is even the slightest chance of them escaping and they should be muzzled and kept on a leash at all times in public.

    Makes my blood boil

    Firstly, yes it's a sad event & i doo feel for the poor woman & her family, i don't think banning all pets is the answer... i personally have over 30 years experience of keeping, showing & breeding Akita's. I have children & some very big powerful dogs. it's all about common sense & tightening the laws around keeping animals is the answer IMO... make the owners accountable.

    Did 'nt say ban all pets mate,however every time a thing like this happens we get the sort of comments"its the owners fault" but sadly you can't put a Human to sleep so it has to be the dog..i'd ban em all mate ...no dogs as pets i'm affraid .

    It would appear she was a lodger at the house, there was also a puppy in the house, dogs like most animals and indeed humans protect their young, they have not located the owner of the dogs.
    It is possible it was protecting its young against someone who is not its master/leader of the pack. They are naturally pack animals. This is not to condone what has happened, it could be the dog had a unknown illness or its owner has not trained it properly.
    Only the police/ post mortem investigation will highlight the reason for the unusual killing of an adult but, due to its size (Belgium Mastiff) it shows it is possible.

    IIRC, the news said a puppy was removed from the premises.

    So, as none of us know the facts, let's say for example the dead woman attacked the puppy for whatever reason. What d'you expect the reaction of the mother dog to be? This scenario would probably be the same whatever dog was involved, albeit maybe not mauling the owner to death. There could be many, many reasons why the dog attacked the woman.

    As I said, if we don't know the facts or what's behind the attack, how can you make a judgement?

    Rant over

    EDIT - Keefy*2010 beat me to it.

    Like i say Keef,you cannot rely on responsible owners,so therefore the dog must unfortunately have to take the blame,and furthermore the breed should be banned after this episode,and anyone found to be owning one should be treated very severely indeed,and not slapped on the wrist,hard line i know ,but it's the only way.
