First there's this one:
Dog lover mauled to death by his pets | News.com.au
Personally, I believe these dogs should have been put down after the first lot of attacks, but hey, the owner won and chose to continue living with them.A DOCTOR who won a four-year legal battle to save his three dogs from being put down for attacking humans has been mauled to death by the animals.
Sky News said today the 52-year-old victim was attacked in his garden in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and died before police arrived. Officers shot one of the bullmastiffs dead and the other two were put down.
The pets spent years in "custody" pending legal hearings, but when one of them attacked a dog handler, authorities ordered them to be put down.
But at the eleventh hour, in June 2009, the doctor succeeded in overturning the order and got his dogs back, sparking national controversy.
They were apparently not grateful.
"Three dogs bit their 52-year-old owner to death in Ljubljana yesterday," police spokeswoman Maja Adlesic said.
News of the owner's death prompted an opposition party to call for the resignation of the agriculture minister for failing to stop the dogs from being released back to their owner.
Police gave no more details and have so far refused to identify the victim, in line with the country's privacy laws.
Then there's this one:
Laws urged as dog attack stats revealed | News.com.au
Perhaps if more parents were more aware and supervised their kids this wouldn't be an issue. At least they're pushing blame the deed not the breed in this article. I know Michael and he is a decent man who wants the best for dogs. Fingers crossed the message gets through.ALARMING new statistics reveal at least 11 babies or toddlers are being mauled by dogs every month in Queensland.
The state's 32 public hospital emergency departments have treated 4471 Queenslanders for dog-related injuries since July 2007 - 144 every month. Statistics showed 36 children aged 12 or younger were treated every month, including 11 aged three and under.
Royal Brisbane Hospital paediatric physician Dr Jason Acworth said he treated a child every fortnight, some requiring plastic surgery for horrific facial injuries.
"Unfortunately we see lots of face bites," Dr Acworth said.
Pit bulls and staffordshire terriers were responsible for most vicious attacks, but every breed was a danger if provoked, he said.
The RSPCA has called for uniform dog laws, which currently are enforced differently by many councils. The society's Michael Beatty said people should "punish the deed not the breed".
"There are some people who shouldn't have children, let alone animals," he said.
Brisbane veterinary behaviourist Dr Cam Day said owners were a problem but some dogs were "bent in the head".
This world is going down the toilet fast. I can't wait to buy lots of land and live there with my dog (that will turn into dogs hehe) in privacy and comfort without having to deal with this crap!
