Thread: Yet Another Dog Attack

  1. #1

    Default Yet Another Dog Attack

    This is a cut and paste from
    Girl suffers in head injuries after being mauled by dog in Mooroolbark | Herald Sun.

    So this is not in any way my it is not my words.

    ANOTHER child has been mauled by a dog, this time in Melbourne's east.

    The attack on the four-year-old Mooroolbark girl comes less than 24 hours after a dog savaged a 16-month-old girl in Werribee.

    Both attacks were by their family pet.

    Today’s victim, who was attacked about 10.45am in a park, was treated by paramedics at the scene and taken to the Royal Children’s Hospital.

    She has sustained injuries to her head.

    Yesterday’s victim remains in a stable condition in hospital.

    The attacks come two months after four-year-old Ayen Chol was mauled to death by a pit bull cross in her St Albans home.

    Poor girl!! Family pets They really do take out the highest percentage sadly. People become much too complacent with family pets. Weird how it was the family pet but the attack happened in a park?

    The last line is unnecessary. They fail to mention the breed of dog (meaning it wasn't something that can be mistaken for a PB) but manage to bring the whole thing back to Pitbulls.

    I hope both the children involved in today and yesterdays attacks recover fully (physically and mentally).

    Here is a link to the other story they mention from yesterday.

    Toddler attacked by family dog in Werribee | Herald Sun

    This one ^^ Sounds like the dog snapped rather than attacked.

    No breeds mentioned in either article and no hysterical outcry even though 2 children were injured in separate incidents. what a surprise.

    I think they said this one was a Malamute or something close to that.
    All I know is that we will have to watch our boy with the girls as he loves them so much but I am sure this could turn easy if he knew he could easily overpower them.
    And he can do that now, so yes we watch this lad wiht the girls.
    One thing we do but I hate it as Murphy is always getting put outside when the girls are here as he is always pestering them. So out he goes. But I am thinking in the long run he will grow to hate this, So lets hope he grows up quicker to understand.

    ... hhm yeah I am not surprised that they didn't name the breed... if it was a bull breed we all know what the headlines would be.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Totally see what you are saying.
    I think people wait and pray that it is alway one of that breed as much as they hate to hear about it.
    But whenb it does happenb they just want the bull discription put in so they can go to town on it once again.

    My dogs will never ever be near my grandies as they are very rarely here (I go to them) and my dogs have very little experience with kids.

    In saying that though there is one I would bring out on a lead for an on lead fully supervised visit. MAYBE

    Our last Heeler was bought up with teenagers and she coped well with them.
    Then came the grandies and time was now aging our Heeler Lacey.
    Oneday the fella from nextdoors had his grandie visit and in the end he was passed of the fence to play with our grandie. Lacey being bought up with teenagers took to just sitting close to them but just out of hand reach.
    It was as if she was there to look after them but not there to be touched.
    It was so nice of the old girls to do that.
