I'm not surprise.In this country and thugs are loose animals are sentenced to death.
same in the uk
give milo another chance, and give him
when is this madness going to stop? why do people think of a dog bites someone they should have to die?
maybe the person did something to the dog to provoke him. years ago when a dog bit a kid or anyone they were not sentenced to die. did the bite break the skin? get serious please! people think this is the only answer.IT IS NOT!
Actually the bite did break the skin, to the tune of 400 stitches. By the time I was 4 my parents had taught me not to run up to any dog like that even if I knew them. Dogs startle! I also learned not to put my face near an animal's face or paws, not to yell or hit them, not to pull tails, clobber them with things, etc. Even adults do this now days and are surprised at the result. Stupid people!
I agree Laurie, they have to stop the madness which is just what it is. Kids can be awful to animals and we don't know if that was the case at all. Anyway, the fact that they want to put this dog down is just stupid. Sorry about the language.
The is not fould but his owner.The humans makes the animals like his want, so animal is not in charga.
After having seen what "kids" do to dogs, I can't believe more of the little snotbags aren't bitten. Put the pup in quarantine for a while, teach the kid manners around dogs and other animals....period.
Did the child do anything to the dog or did the dog just go over and bite the child. Well?
the child run over to a dog sleeping on a couch--while the 15 yo babysitter left the room--the child was overly excited at seeing Milo--and I suspect startled the dog--original story: http://www.examiner.com/article/hound-who-bit-child-mansfield-has-been-sentenced-to-death
People have gone too far to the extreme - I know personally of a small dog that used to have seizures and had bitten people without provocation. He was never threatened to be killed - c'mon people - get real!
Ong I bight by a dog when I was little. It was just a accent and my mom and dad knew that this is crazy this happens a lot now.
I bet that the child has annoyed the dog, and to kill a dog just because he has bitten is absurd!
I sent an email with disappointment.
The dog isn't guilty for reacting! The child should have been assisted by her parents or any adult.It's so unfair to decide to put down the poor animal.Keep children away from dogs, not the opposite!
