    Default Man Charged Over Ayen Chol's Death (by Dog Attack)

    Dog owner charged over fatal pit bull attack - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Updated October 31, 2011 14:05:54

    Ayen Chol, 4, was killed in an attack by a dog which had escaped from a neighbours property.

    Police have charged the owner of a dog that mauled a girl to death at St Albans, in Melbourne's north-west, in August.

    Ayen Chol, 4, was attacked by a pit bull that forced its way into her home.

    Two of her relatives, including a five-year-old girl, were badly hurt in the attack.

    Police say the 57-year-old St Albans man is facing eight charges under the domestic animals act.

    They include owning a dog that attacks a person causing death and two counts of owning a dog that attacks and seriously injures someone.

    The man will face Sunshine Magistrates Court in December.
    I heard that the dog was unregistered, and that the real owner a 31 yo man son of the 57 yo - has nicked off leaving his dad to face the charges.

    Yes. The right owner though. Does it say if the dog was staying at the father's home, his son was living there too with the dog? Co owners.

    I hope so much that this may get others to think twice and contain their dogs.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Maybe the old man sooled it on? early dementia or whatever? I do not believe that dog just went on that rampage without prior agitation whether from the old man the young one or from kids tormenting it, that dog was, one way or another conditioned to do what it did.

    i personally dont feel conditioned is the right word...implies its been conditioned to maul and kill. IMHO. Not having a stab at you it's just the way i read it

    my guess is that the dog was locked in a backyard, never excercised, never paid much attention, never shown love by its alleged family ... it was extremely frustrated due to several issues and reverted to its natural instincts when given the opportunity(ie got out of its yard/prison). That is not a breed specific problem, many dogs can be provoked into attacking by such circumstances.

    Me, I figure that no one here can give a factual account of the circumstances involved in this case.

    We have had to rely on journalists to relay their peurile understanding and simplistic interpretations of what actually happened.

    The only facts that we can be sure of is that Ayen Chol is dead, and that a dog was responsible for her death. Anything else is speculation.

    I'm going to wait for the coroner's findings; at least the coroner will examine the evidence and give a considered response.

    It is easy (and lame) to lay blaim and attribute 'sooling' by either the dad or the son as the cause, but none of us were there and none of us saw what happened.

    I am not defending the dog involved and I am not defending the dog's owners; if the accounts in the papers are true, the owner's position is indefensible.

    Having lived in this world for over 55 years, I have learned to have a lot more faith in coroners than journalists. As I said, I'm waiting to hear what the coroner has to say.

    Other than that, I think that none of us is contributing positively by speculating.

    Regards,

    ricey

    There have been a few people directly involved - posting on the various internet forums about what is going on. So there are people who know the dog owner's side of the story.

    I've yet to see anything that adequately explains the council's side of the story but knowing the way some of the staff work at my local council - I wouldn't put it past some of them to do the wrong thing based on their own personal prejudices. And some of them just do what ever seems good at the time - without actually checking what they're supposed to be doing. And lots of them say they will do something and then don't actually do it. And a lot of them - when asked for information - make something up which happens to be wrong. I've got evidence of that in writing from my local council staff - over and over and over again.
