The daughter obviously couldn't control the dog and it attacked a baby sea lion.
What if the dog had attacked a baby or a small child? The girl could not have controlled it
This ass has no problem letting his daughter walk around with a deadly weapon which actually will, on it's own kill but he has a problem with me owning an inanimate object, a tool, that will only work as I intend it to.
If his daughter had been walking down the beach with an AR 15, which she could control instead of a dog that she couldn't the sea lion would still be alive.
There are two beings on every leash.
Only one is ultimately morally responsible for whatever happens.
