Exclamation Dog attack with a twist.

I thought this story was pretty interesting. Do you think the dispatcher should be fired? What are your opinions? http://www.newsnet5.com/print/4184524/detail.html#

Here's what was said when Osborne called 911:

Dispatcher: "What kind of dog attacked him, Samantha?"

Dispatcher, repeating: "What kind of dog attacked him, Samantha?"

Samantha to her husband: "What kind of dog is JD?"

Husband: "He's a pit bull."
Dughgh. Let's hope that the dispatcher got help on the way before this got started.... not clear from the story

Ebony... this may have been a case where it had to be done... to turn on a family member at that age, IF the family was there , I don't think it could ever be trusted.

I don't feel like the dispatcher was professional and should be disciplined. We all know that if it was a labrador that did it, it would not have been said....

I think the dispatcher was way out of line. I don't care what happened, you don't tell a person in with a badly injured child that they're stupid.

Im with gemp. And as far as the fault lays with the attack, I think the blame lies in the lack of supervision

I do believe that the dispatcher shouldnt have called the people stupid when their dog just attacked their kid. HOwever, i do agree with the fact that the dog was put down. I know what pit bulls are like i've had them, my husband has had them, and they can be the best dogs in the world but they can also be one of the most dangerous dogs in the world. I love them and i would have one if i didnt have my son. To me it isnt worth it, pitts are just too unpredicable once you have small children in the house.
