Horrible. The dog had bitten people before, but a lot of times in lower income neighborhoods, people don’t report it )sometimes because they’re scared of the dog’s owner).
An utter nightmare. Self-Defense should be considered, I think Bull Mastiffs are listed among the more dangerous dogs, it looks like a “Brindle” Bull Mastiff.
He had to stab his dog over and over to stop it from killing, but the dog would not be stopped. That is but one nightmare scenario, dreaded by any one who loves their pet. Terrible. In the photo provided, I see the owner, Paul Clarke with his dog, Trigger. Trigger is behind a chain link fence about four and a half feet high. That dog was a big as a small pony, and could have easily scaled that fence. Some big dogs become trained and stay that way, others, not so much. A large and powerful dog plus a low fence always equals a high stakes gamble.
