    Absolutely tragic news;

    Newborn baby dies and two arrested after Doncaster dog attack

    With humans now requiring to be muzzled when confined in close proximity to others, then it must be time for dogs to be as well. Time after time we get bad news like the above.

    And surely time as well for dog ownership to be controlled by licence, that is only granted to people of the right disposition for safe dog ownership. After 6 months of people being controlled over a mild flu bug, then time that ownership of lethal dogs were similarly controlled.
    Say "NO" to sock puppets on 'e Org!

    For once I actually agree with you.

    I'm afraid that sometimes, it is dogs that have no previous history that do this. Thankfully it is very rare but so awful.

    Apparently, the breed of dog involved is a chow chow cross. And Wikipedia says of the Chow Chow;


    "Owning a Chow-Chow can raise the cost of homeowners insurance because some companies consider them high-risk dogs. In a study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Chow-Chow were responsible for 8 out of 238 fatalities related to dog bites from 1979 to 1998."

    And

    "Due to their strong hunting instincts, it is recommended that these dogs stay fenced, leashed, and away from cats and small dogs"

    If ever there was evidence that Joe Public needs regulation on dog ownership, then this must be it.
