Be careful with your logic around here.

It's all dependent on the training of the dog in question. I have had pitbulls for years. If an unwanted animal (racoons, possums, foxes, etc.) get into the yard when the dogs are out I let them have at it. On the rare occasion one of them has gone after an intruding dog or cat I order them to stop and they stop in mid stride and sit down and wait for me. Once we had a pitbull that acted too aggressive with people and we had him put down. While some may disagree with that I say better safe than sorry. My bulldogs are sweet tempered, hang out with the family cats and let my grandbaby ride them like ponies. They also obey my grandkid's commands- and she is a toddler. But if they ever showed any signs of becoming too aggressive with anyone in our family and extended family I would put them down in a heartbeat, but I would do the same if my dogs were chihuahuas.

Yeah, I had a wiener dog growing up that liked to leave "surprises" for me on the back steps so I would find them when I went out to feed the animals every morning. On the odd days that my mother would have to leavve the house early she definitely did not appreciate finding Bandit's "gifts"!

You don't compare a wild shark to a house pet. Dogs walk the streets with their owners every day. The same way it attacked a sea lion, it could attack someone's dog, or even a child playing outside. I'm pretty sure we've all seen how most dogs initially react to the sound of a young child's voice, they're keen to it. Don't underestimate what its next action can be, especially after seeing what its capable of, and also seeing its disobedience to its owner when it wouldn't let go at all.

I am a dog person who has successfully raised multiple pups in my life. About 10 years ago I took a papered 6 month old American Bulldog.

It was immediately aggressive and after 6 months of failed training techniques, frustration and dog bites I gave up and gifted the dog to a friend who trained this particular breed for sled pulling.

His experience was similar to mine except by now it was a hundred pounds of aggressive dog. It ended up attacking somebody and was euthanized.

I have seen many docile "Pit Bull" type dogs (they aren't a breed unto themselves) and am familiar with the dog bite statistics which place German Shepherds as the most likely to bite.

My experience with the American Bulldog pup has convinced me that some members of the breed are inherently dangerous.

With that, the dog in the video was just doing what dogs do, the fault is on Mark Kelly's family for allowing the dog off leash near a marine mammal habitat.

My two cents

As opposed, to say... a Tame Shark?

I am in agreement with you. Some dogs are just aggressive from the get-go. I think that it probably has a lot to do with inbreeding as a lot of breeders don't bring in new bloodlines often enough. I've only had one pitbull over the years who was overly aggressive and had him put down. I cried because of it and I still miss him but giving him to someone else never crossed my mind as I would have been just passing the risk on to someone else. Having a dog spayed or neutered doesn't always solve the problem of aggressive behavior either. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

I am in total agreement with you as well ( must mean we are both right
)

I must admit to feeling a certain amount of guilt and responsibility for not having put the dog down myself after learning that it had actually hurt someone.

Worth .50 (fitty)


It is very terrible for the girl she will not forget this. Because of what happened with Marks's wife and her mom I think they were given a *pass*.. If that was one of us, they would of took our dog, fined us, and maybe even kept that dog to be euthanized. The guy screaming DROWN IT DROWN IT, needs a good knock upside the head... Now while they could of stuck the dogs head under water it is not a guarantee it will let go then. The seal was dead this girl was kind of playing tug of war with the poor little seal, she should of let the seal go because playing tug of war with a dog and a seal, while the seal being the *monkey* in the middle

That is why cats are pursued in Australia or kept under lock and key. The blame and responsibility is not on the animal but on the human. You reward that destructive action of your dog, he will keep at it...


Well with mine it is not trained or rewarded but the little turd thinks its funny I am sure!

They really are good people. Its too bad that happened a gutsy guy with heart and the tragedy of his wife, poor dude doesn't deserve having that happen in front of the stupid world.

Whats up with the guy saying drown the dog? He really meant it too he tried to cover and say its so the dog would let go, but then later after the dog did let go he said it again.

Are a lot more people kinda weird nowadays or is it my imagination? That one lady hitting the dog in the snout with what a dead fish? Then it takes an astronaut to finally get results that should have been obvious?

I have lived with (wont say owned) so many dogs, I love em all.

All dogs will attack a wild animal. It just has to ask one. lol. Its engrained deep inside of them they are sentient and understand the difference. They need to be leashed if you don't want them doing this because they just love it!

Some even like dead wild animals. Dogs are so full of life...raw nature yet they understand the rules of society and they feel wild animals are fair play. As a lot of humans do too.

I would of liked to punch who ever was recording the event right in the nose..

The guy yelling drown the dog should be drowned himself..

Mark Kelley went right in and got the dog to let go. That baby seal died pretty instantly, killing the dog would not of solved anything.. I am kind of glad they did not get cited, but where I am from they would of cited us for loosing control of the animal in a leash zone...

Dog should have been on a leash in that area hands down, doesn't matter what breed....For the dogs safety from an adult sea lion, and baby sea lions safety as well.

That being said, the fact is that the dog wasn't on a leash. And honestly I am not outraged or surprised that this happened. It's just what dogs do! Dogs don't think like humans........no matter how bad you want them to, they are still a predator, incidents like this happen all the time, committed by all breeds of dogs, They may not get filmed, or belong to someone kind of famous, but is is just a fact of life these things happen. No reason for PETA to get involved, I'm sure they understand just as well.

Owners at fault.

I am more outraged at the dumb **** that was yelling to drown the dog. What a piece of garbage. People like that weird me out, I would have told him to STFU if I were there.

It's fair game in the dogs head!
You should see how many animals my cats kill on a daily basis. Indoor/outdoor cats on 2 acres out in the county. They are always killing rabbits, mice, birds, you name it....for fun they don't even eat them, they play with them and toss em up in the air, and torture them, and then bring them up on the porch like a gift to me.....It is brutal to say the least, but I cant stop them.

Hey, I do have to say that at least the dog would have probably eaten the baby sea lion!!!!! These killer domesticated predator cats we call pets kill way more, for the pure pleasure of it, not because they are hungry.....At least mine do.
