P.S. It is in a Pitbull type breed's DNA to attack, kill etc.? That is what they were bred to do? Seriously? It is in MY DNA to be a drug-dealer and a prositute, I should have done time in a maximum security prison as well but thankfully for me I was put up for adoption at 5 weeks of age in 1965. I was raised by two beautiful people who desperately wanted children and who showered me with love and affection. DNA hasn't had an effect on me apart from the colour of my hair, eyes and skin - I...

Nobody is a truer testament to being a product of their environment than me! You're just clueless!!!

A good portion of people would much rather have the companionship of a beloved pet to that of another person. Anyone with a HEART and SOUL should love all animals. ANYONE who uses and abuses animals should at the very least have their butts kicked.

Here's the chance to do our part. Help me tell Miranda where to get off!!! To have a dog in your life is a privilege. They are not disposable.

I think there SHOULD be a buyback scheme. When a human abuses an animal and the animal dies, the human's family should be given a sum of money and the human should be immediately "humanely put to sleep". Why should dogs be killed summarily and yet humans get away scot free with the EXACT SAME CRIMES, especially when the DOG is the one who DOESN'T KNOW ANY BETTER?

Dogs are NOT disposable items. This kind of thinking is why we have so many dogs in pounds, and so many neglected and dangerous dogs in the first place. This thinking is the problem, NOT the solution. My girls are my family, and I am NOT giving my family members up to be murdered! These people disgust me!

Miranda needs to clean up her own house before she starts with this stupid scheme. She wrote an article about how her dog killed a possum. So it is ok for her dogs to attack other animals - because it is not a pit bull. Yet a pit bull type dog with no history of attacking anything should just be traded in - Miranda, you are a sick person.

Exactly! If she wants a buy-back scheme then she should be the first to hand her's over

Did some math, who is going to pay to euthanise an estimated 850,000 dogs, or is a heavy blow with a blunt instrument ok here as well as puppy farms. This is a rediculous idea and I can't believe a stupid politition is actually considering this

Miranda Devine you're a piece of shit. People who think like you can trade themselves back, obviously your mum and dad never have you the opportunity to have "Mans best friend" therefore you treat animals like items you can refund. Well screw you. I hope sometime in your life someone trades you in for a better option. Pitiful!

Other thsn her comments being ludicrous- i challenge her to back up her statements with fact! Is she a vet- no! A scientist-no! A geneticist (since she made some pretty strong calls regarding killing beung in DNA)- no! Does she have a degree is public health-no! Well WTF does she know? How dare she think she is an expert to put forward a proposal. If we are going to put proposals forward on 'observations' then i 'observe' she is stupid and a 'danger' to humanity with her small clise minded...

Frim this i declare her 'a danger' and from this all journalists should ve put down to stop them endangering the community!

Please be reasonable and get some statistics which is true and not just made up so it supports one journalist's opinion. Talk to reputable dog behaviourists, talk to people who have done some log term research on this and overall ask yourself the question: do you really want to be known as that person who supported the extinction of specific dog breeds? And who always will be compared to a mass murderer? Please think about the consequences of your doing!! It would be an absolutely horrible,...

And who always will be compared to a mass murderer? Please think about the consequences of your doing!! It would be an absolutely horrible, evil and inhumane act which will follow you for the rest of your life and I can guarantee that this guilt will eat you alive... Let them live and instead go after the people who are responsible for dangerous dogs (from chihuahua to Great Dane)... It is the person behind the dog... Fight the cause and not the symptom!!! That is all!!!
