Lately, I have seen a lot of stories on the news or online about dog attacks. Most of them are from Pit Bulls because it seems as if they get all the negative attention in the media. However, the story I read yesterday was about a Labrador that attacked a woman in Iowa.
I'm not asking about the age old Pit Bull debate or even the 'what constitutes an agressive breed' debate, I am asking about something a little more simple.
If a dog attacks/bites someone, should the dog be destroyed? And should the owner be held responsible for the dog?
Personally, I do not think a dog bite should be a death sentence for the dog. But I am all for putting the dog down for an all out attack or mauling.
