As a middle aged, average size woman there are very few dogs I have ever been scared of, let alone afraid for my life. If a dog runs toward me, even
if they're barking....you put out your hand so they can sniff, 9 out of 10 times the dog will be friendly or run away cause they are scared. Once a
dog's humans introduce you to their dogs, the dogs usually understand that you are welcome at the home and want to make friends
I tend to agree with you here ..until we get to certain breeds of dogs. I know, some will argue till they are blue in the face and dropping dead from
lack of air that breeds are 100% PRECISELY equal and no breed is more aggressive or prone to fight than any other....and I'd say some people need an
education and leave it at that. Ignorance is almost worn with pride by some.
In this case, they told a family the worst news they possibly could bring to a doorstep. The family reacted in a predictable way with emotional
outbursts and general heartache to an extreme. The Pitbull apparently heard/sensed the emotional upheaval and made a VERY bad interpretation of "New
People = Problem creating owners to be in such emotional pain"
Pitbulls are favored and sought out specifically for drug dealers, criminals and dog fighters because, in general terms, they have a vicious and
brutal instinct that can be brought out and trained up without NEAR the effort required in other dogs.
So.... The dog is running on a charge ... you have 1-2 seconds before you're no longer defending an approaching threat but trying to stop further
damage as your flesh is being torn up by a very pissed off dog. What do you do? Run? Dogs are FASTER and WILL catch up....it's why cops use them in
the first place. Taser? Ever try and hit a fast running object when only ONE shot will count and missing could mean you die for it? ...assuming the
taser wouldn't just piss it off.
.......It's amazing how Cop's lives are figured worthless next to the mighty value of a pet. Any pet. In *JUST THIS CASE*, not 100 other cases with
other details ..but JUST THIS ONE...I don't see where they had any choice.
