    I wasn't totally dissapointed with it to be honest.
    I liked how that man on that panel brought up the fact that there are a certain number of people have them because they are 'socally unacceptable'. I also liked how they talked about because they are banned, that has sent them underground.
    So I read in the other PB thread about Hugh Wirth. What was going on with him? He seemed pretty ok just then on 7PM.

    Hugh Wirth is the head of RSPCA Vic. He is one of the first to chime in saying that the breed is the cause of all the problems. He is the one quoted comparing them to "The Slathering Hound of Baskerville". He rarely represents the RSPCA's true stance on BSL, and frankly he causes more harm than good to the situation.

    I only saw the last minute unfortunately, when the guy was saying how the breed is dangerous and Australians shouldn't own PBs, and THANKFULLY other dangerous breeds arent in Oz.
    From that minute of his pointless crap, Im not impressed.

    i didnt see it myself but there is something to be said for genes, most of how a dog is from how it has grown up. BUT in some instances you really cant get away from genetics, i'm not talking breeds but individual dogs offspring. An aggressive dog who is breed CAN breed that aggression into their pups BUT that also goes for many many things, i.e the will to hunt, or retrieve, or herd.

    never dismiss the power of genetics

    Missed the show completely but I must say I don't disagree with Kaz. We have had to remove very young pups from agressive mama's in the past to ensure they don't "teach" their offspring how to turn on that aggression. It's sad, but hand raising is our only option in these cases short of putting everyone to sleep
