    These stories are just a pain in the arse. Most don't supply sufficient information yet they always manage to chuck 'pitbull type' or 'SBT' in there... it's the same article every time give or take the location... sigh...

    Yes, it all very annoying - but also so very sad. I really hope that the lady is OK - but there was not very much information on her.

    More space was allocated to the type (?) of dog involved.

    There are more comments with the article - so maybe - ChoppaChop & jadielee87 - they finally put your comments up !

    It's been all over the news here this evening. Dogs didn't look to vicious when the rangers were catching them or when they had a news camera in their faces while they were caged.

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

    I saw that on the new shorts. They were in the cage and it looked like all they wanted to do was lick the camera!

    Sad. For both the dogs & the women involved.

    Maybe they were just after her dog and she got in the way?! Who knows

    With all the bad press on staffies, I thought I'd share this Wikipedia article, which made me smile: Staffordshire Bull Terrier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I especially liked this quote:
    RSPCA chief vet Mark Evans said: "Staffies have had a terrible press, but this is not of their own making - in fact they're wonderful dogs. If people think that Staffies have problems, they're looking at the wrong end of the dog lead! When well cared for and properly trained they can make brilliant companions. Our experience suggests that problems occur when bad owners exploit the Staffie's desire to please by training them to show aggression."

    And OT, but this reminds me of where Banjo most likely gets her exuberance from: "They express their affection through jumping up, nuzzling, licking and pawing, and even when trained can still be 'fussy' with owners and others."

    Horror end to daily walk | Toowoomba News | Local News in Toowoomba | Toowoomba Chronicle from the local paper. It seems the dogs were after her dog and she got in the way..

    Ok, while I think savagely attacking another dog is totally NOT ok, that article is full of twisted comments!

    "both women fell victim to a savage and unprovoked attack by two staffordshire bull terriers yesterday morning."

    The dog fell victim to an unprovoked attack. The woman provoked the dog by sticking her hands in. Which is a natural thing to do of course because her dog might have well ended up dead.

    And then a bit later she says: "I dread to think what would have happened if it was a little child and mother walking down the street".

    It's another case of stupid owners not socialising their dogs with other dogs and allowing them to roam free. But I really hate how they make it appear as if the dogs are potential child killers.

    That is absolutely dreadful ! Thank you Kristy.Maree for giving more info on the story.

    But this is all the 'same all same all ' garbage sprouted by reporters to sell more newspapers - isn't it ?

    Questions that need to be answered for me in circumstances like this are:

    1 Why were the dogs out and about and where were the owners ?
    2 Why were the dogs not in their own secure yard ?
    3 Why were the dogs not on lead when they are out and about ?

    I am aware of my legal responsibilities that concern my dog and his actions. So why is that others don't abide by the same laws I have to and then seem to completely ignore their responsibilities regarding their own dogs ?

    I find it all really frustrating !

    Basically the whole of Wine drive is an off-leash park so the owners could've had them there and they ran off or something similar. But if you have a dog thats agressive towards other dogs or people you should not let if off the leash.. some people have way too much dificuilty understanding that!
