Sorry but how would you all feel if one of your children had been badly bitten. I am afraid that the owners of the dogs are responsible for the dog- it is about time the law was changed and we were not allowed to use dogs as weapons- why was a dangerous dog in a place, unattended, from which he could be released? He is not going to be terrified, he is a dog with a high prey drive and lots of self confidence. I agree he has done nothing wrong by his own standards, but he has by mine- dogs...

I agree he has done nothing wrong by his own standards, but he has by mine- dogs like this should not even EXIST let alone be left unattended, it is just wrong. I totally fail to see what everyone is getting so upset about and there is NO way I would release this dog back to owners who cannot keep it under control, so I am afraid I am siding with the council here, no-one is going to hurt the dog, for gods' sake, just put it down! It is a shame, but then, it is a shame that irresponsible owners are able to own a dog potentially more dangerous than a loaded shotgun- how would you feel about renewing this owners shotgun license if he had had a loaded shotgun stolen and it had ended up in a crowded park?

Playford Council. How many education campaigns have YOU run on what to do if a person finds a lost dog. Let me guess. Zero? So you are partly to blame and you will not avoid this by killing the dog. Tyson can be rehabilitated and retrained. He is a victim of a crime, as a criminal vandalised and damaged the fence enclosing him. You can spare him by insisting he is rehabilitated by a professional trainer, and conducting an awareness campaign to publicise the collars guard dogs wear Humans...

Have compassion and a sense of justice. Let Tyson live.

Years ago my beautiful much loved dog had to be put down because some aboriginal kids broke into my yard to steal things and let him out. He snapped at one boys heels, didn't even leave a mark, so the mother reported us. Had to go to court. Broke our hearts. This is an example of unfair actions toward dogs

this situation is terrible. bear in mind the dog was not born aggressive and that we as humans train these behaviours for our benefit!!(security).he waa wearing the appropraite collar as was not at large due to his owners or himself!regardless of his security training (once again that he did not put his paw up for)this is a normal reaction for any animal that is petrified!!it seems to me that euthanasia is the easy option here!!!lets face it

This is just absurd and illogical. A guard dog is trained to carry out specific duties and now you are killing him for the very skills you trained him for. Why are you not looking the criminals who vandalised his enclosure and let him out? Surely you must have CCTV at this place which you can use to identify the real criminals in this case. Oh. perhaps not, no CCTV because you have trained Tyson so good that no one could vandalise the place. For God's sake show some integrity here and deal...

Surely in your job you are trained to make the correct decisions. I must remember not to use my self defence skills if I am ever attacked by a criminal!

UPDATE on Tyson. Have spoken to the inspector sat morning and they have no intention of revoking the order. Have even spoken to a lawyer deals in these situations and it looks like we are fighting an up hill battle. But there's no way I'm giving up.
