Re: ABCnews: Pack of vicious dogs attack officer. :-)
- I saw the smiley and this is an old topic near and dear to my heart that
most of you have heard, but this is case in point. "Vicious dogs" often
come from owners who don't teach them manners/discipline, etc. The
difference between little and big dogs is the size of the bite- more people
think a "nippy" lap dog is "ok", but a "nippy" rottweiller brings a whole
different image. I don't have the stats, but most bites come from
small dogs (but aren't reported "since they didn't really do any damage")
or the "family dogs" (because by number dogs like shepards and
retrievers outnumber other dogs). Glad the guy is detained, with
"bite laws" in many places there should have been some consequences.
Maybe these vicious dogs should go to the top of the list of dangerous
animals, right alongside Pit Bulls..... The Police Officer showed great
restraint by not using his sidearm to defend himself against this violent,
unprovoked attack. Maybe Fremont California is really, really short of
true newsworthy material?
PS - Happy New Year!
