It is entirely the owner's fault. And you would think they would have socialized this dog with children, the lady is a school teacher, for crying out loud! If you're gonna have a dog, teach it some manners. It's obvious that they didn't care at all for the dog or he couldn't have just shot him like that.

How can you shoot - in cold blood - anything you love? These people just sound callous no matter how you look at it. Frightening when you think that one is a teacher and the other a cop . . . just the kind of people who don't need to be in either profession.

Bad dogs generally are a reflection of bad owners. There's plenty of blame to go around on this one.

From what I could tell the blame lies in the dog who tried to eat a kid from the spine out, and the cop who owned such a rotten animal.

Like I said . . . you find a "bad dog" you'll find a bad owner just about every time.

Well, that's kind of a given. I generally assume criminals had a bad upbringing too.

The 'nature vs. nurture' theories in human behaviour have advocates both way. Human behaviour, I have found, is much more aberrant and unpredictable than canine behaviour. Dogs are far easier to train than humans, and tend to have a less irrationally combative - and irrational - nature than we do.

You obviously never owned a terrier. Kidding, kidding. I agree that dogs are noble, but that's because we created them to be that way. They're carnivores who can kill us, so they have to be noble creatures or we're in serious trouble. Notice we didn't create the domesticated cat to weigh 50lbs. My point was that this is a rotten dog and I see nothing particularly sad about his/her being shot to death. OK, the likelihood is that the owner was to blame too - at the very least, he was careless with the dog, which is pretty bad when you consider the consequences - but the dog was not an innocent actor. We say they can be noble, ie, forebearing and forgiving, so why do so many people flinch from holding dogs to account when they are not noble?
