Default Dog attack - woman has lost an arm

Yesterday this happened:

And todays update:

Quote:
Doctors are operating on Mandy Peynado, 48, in an effort to save the rest of her limb which was savaged by the dog at Knightwood Kennels, near Salisbury.

Her arms were bitten as she tried to protect her throat when the animal turned on her.

The breed bans are sure working, aren't they?

That sounds like dog with a mental problem...

Rotties aren't a banned breed.

I know that, but by their logic banning pit bulls would stop these kinds of things, and its worked real well, hasn't it?

No - the logic was that banning pit bulls would stop pit bull attacks - and through a process of elimination, it has

They didn't ban pit bulls to stop rottie attacks, or lab attacks

Well, the logic was to stop pit bull attacks, but since they seemed to think pit bulls were responsible for a disproportionate number of dog attacks, the theory would be that there would be fewer people hurt by dogs. I have no idea how well this worked in England, but I believe it was a total failure where they have installed breed bans here. Irresponsible owners will just get another breed . . .

Why did this have to be turned into a Pittie argument anyway?
