It’s easy to generalise so here goes. In the absence of any scientific evidence, I reckon the more vicious or dangerous a breed of dog is, the greater the chances that its owner is at best a bit of a macho dill, and at worst a completely anti-social undesirable.
The death of a four-year-old girl in a pit bull attack in Melbourne this week, her poor family refugees from Sudan, has raised questions about the adequacy of the laws governing dangerous dogs and the duty of care of their owners.
It’s also raised questions about just what, if indeed anything, is happening inside the minds of people who choose to live in suburbia with dogs that are hard-wired to fight to the death, and have in many cases been rendered even more insane and unpredictable by cross-breeding.
