When I was a kid we adopted a husky that had killed a couple of hogs. The family had recently had a baby.
That dog was fantastic.
I’d never leave her alone with a baby though.
Just from personal experience, our vet recommends that families with young kids should stay away from Chows, Pits, Rotts and Huskies. This is just from stats (I think).
Any beast that mauls a child to death should be summarily and instantly put to death. Period.
That includes the two-legged variety.
I’m sorry, but this is just bizarre.
“poor circumstances” hhmmmm
Allegheny Cty deemed the dog safe for release? Wow. I hope they are prepared for a whopping bill when this dog hurts or kills someone else and Allegheny Cty is found negligent for letting it go free.
I cannot imagine how anyone could let any animal that had killed a human go free. The only possible thing to do is put down the animal immediately.
Hmm. Yes, it’s really stupid to put an infant down with any dog, especially a large dog. But, once the dog has killed a child, why would you adopt it out? I love dogs, but this country has gone insane. We don’t have a dearth of dogs. Unless a dog is protecting his people, a dog who kills should be put to sleep.
From the article “He’s a dog. He was adopted two weeks prior and put into a pack with three other dogs. He broke his leg and had a homemade contraption on him. It wasn’t set right. He’s at the bottom of the food chain and the mother put a baby on the floor in front of him,” said the man.”
There is more than enough blame to go around here. Irresponsible owners and a shelter that adopts out to anyone to keep their “no-kill” statistics up. Dad adopts a new dog two weeks before new baby arrives when he already has three dogs, new dog breaks leg, and he doesn’t bother to get it proper care. Then, mom puts the new baby on the floor in front of the hurt dog. I’m really sorry the child is dead, but I’m not thinking the dog should be killed in retaliation.
This is horrifying. An animal like that needs to be put down.
Give me a gun or a ballpin hammer
I will kill the damned dog
WTF is wrong with people?
one of my big bulldogs bit one of my boys bad...i almost killed the dog..damn I loved the old boy too much
