    The dog was a staffy..that article has a picture of the dog now. It has been taken away by rangers. I just saw a story on it on the channel 10 news. No mention of previous 'pitbulls' attacks..the ranger said the dog was friendly enough to be carried away and they interviewed a lady who was saying that dogs can become stressed by the unpredictable nature of children. Then again, WA doesn't seem to be getting as carried away as VIC with all this BSL rubbish.

    I really don't care what some here have to say as all they want to hear is others agreeing to what they say.
    So to them get a life.

    And yes I do worry that kids have been hurt and yes it is true that there are people out there that rub their hands together once they hear another dog mauling has happened. Then to fall flat when it hasn't got the BULL in its name. Fact.
    Want me to prove it look at some of the posts in other threads in the forum.

    So wheres the proof of this? I cant believe you think people sit around waiting for a mauling so yes i thinks its crap. I couldnt care less if anyone else agrees with me or not statements like that piss me off.

    If you don't care if others agree with you then why reply.
    I think it is true and if you read the post I have pointed you in the direction to find the info. But you want it all laid on a plate for you.
    And this is all GoodBye.

    I followed your pointing to the article however i failed to see people praying for a mauling? Maybe you should read the responses alot of them about "obviously wasnt a pitbull".
    I just had another look at the article and dog now belongs to inlaws, so how is this the same as a family pet? Im sure my inlaws dog isnt our family pet.
    Looking at the photo of the dog it appears to be senior?

    Look what I said was that people when they hear about another dog that has mauled a person/kid. They sit there wanting it to be a BULL type of any type.
    This then gives them the ammo to get on here and run their half witted mouths off about these types of breeds.
    Not once did I say this one was a pitbull.
    So I just don't understand what your point is in saying it was obviously wasn't a pitbull.
    Cause I didn't say it was. I think in my second post on this here I put down it was an Malamute or something.
    You are reading between lines here and it is just not working.
    As for people wanting it to be a Pitbull is a fact as they want to rid Australia of these. If you ask me if I agree with it is not a valid question. It make no difference to me in the slightest way.
    Okay then maybe preying for it to happen may be a bit hard but it is what a lot of people even on here wait for. All they want is to place another nail in the coffin of these breeds. I hope this has clear things up a little for you.

    Ive never said you said it was a pitbull, i said others have jumped on there saying "obviously it wasnt a pitbull". These people are clearly upset at the double standards of reporting and i guess in some ways rightfully so. But when they start highlighting just the breed issue and mention nothing of the child who was attacked thier credibility flies staright out the window and it pisses me off.
    I thought your comment about "preying for it to be a pitbull" was no better than what the media do in building hype.

    I will not relax that stance on that people are waiting on it to be a Pitbull, as it is true.
    I am totally unsure if they do give a damm about the one or ones that have been the target.
    I know I do, and I also know that there are people out there that want all dogs attacks to be carried out by the BULL in their bred discription.
    And this is only so they can say, See I told you so.
    If me putting this down is hype then so be it, but I know it is the truth.

    Whilst I 'think' I get what you are saying Rid - are you saying that the people who wish to see the Pit wiped out are the ones who sit and wait for the next attack? Thats what I 'think' you're saying lol
    There was certainly no need for a 'flounce' ! You say all of us need to be able to accept others views but here , you've not been agreed with and you're saying 'goodbye' ? Looks a bit petulent really.

    The news article has been updated to say

    The small dog, believed to be a staffordshire terrier and belonging to the family's in-laws, was taken to a Yarra Shire pound.
    And it has a photo of a dog with its head under a towel and a very narrow unstaffy like nose sticking out of it. Maybe a staffy x chi?

    My brother taught his staffy to get up and walk away when the attention of (his) children was too much. And my niece used to hit the dog and poke it and it would just walk away out of reach.

    But i still feel sorry for any dog left alone with toddlers.
