    Owners of that breed should be held responsible for violent crimes against people and pets, and be required to have Very high liability insurance.

    I hope that dog is put down and the owners fined and penalized,

    Hope you are well and receive some satisfaction in this matter.
    the owner should be punished not the dog.

    If media coverage wasn't Verminstar's doing, who's was it? A relevant witness, or a journalist going through police files for headline-grabbers?

    Damn man that was horrible.

    I'm very sorry for what happened to your dogs, hope they recover as much as possible and quickly. And I'm glad you're not hurt, it could have gone badly for you too. I completely sympathize with you, I love dogs to bits, they're wonderful creatures, currently have 3 with me. I actually believe than we humans could sometimes learn something from them instead of the opposite.

    Hope that piece of doesn't get away with this, if some piece of hurt my dogs for no reason, I too would make it my life's mission to make the rest of that fekker's life the most miserable as humanly possible.

    As many have written, it isn't the dog that is the problem, it is the person that raised and trained it.

    From my own bad experience with various people, all I can say is that it is important to remember that yeah there are people like that in the world, there are those that want to harm others. But the vast majority of the people in the world are not like that, they go about their daily lives, hold the door for a stranger, and a ton of other 'normal' small things that we might not consider, help with directions, or what have you.

    All these small kindness' those are the normal of the world, that is why events like that make people so angry. All the good in the world, isn't very loud, it simply is. The loud parts are often the bad parts, and they do their best to take up a lot of space, but they are not the normal. And I find it comforting to realise and begin to notice those things, makes me realise the world is not anywhere near as dark as it can seem in the media, yeah there are bad places and bad people, but they are quite a small bit of the overall enormous amount of us people out there.

    I hope you can get some sleep Verminstar. My Border Collie was attacked by that type breed about five years ago. I remember kicking it all over but it wouldn't stop. I had to grab it by the collar and it chewed a gash out of my forearm. I just remember my dog squealing; She only needed stitches on the side of her neck as she'd managed to keep her head down and not get done in the throat. I couldn't sleep for weeks because I had a mixture of sadness at my dog's pain and anger at the owner. At the time I wanted to kill the dog that attacked mine, but it's the owner not socialising it or bringing it up with aggression that's the real crime imo.

    Vermin gutted to hear about your dogs and gutted some has done that to his own loving dog. I come from a small Lancashire town so I know exactly what u mean when you say this is in trouble. I’ve a crew of friends from 30 odd years of going on the football and I know for a fact the justice we deliver to those who deserve it is final, much as some deserving idiot is about to find out over the water. Good on you.

    Sorry to hear about your and your dogs ordeal, CMDR.

    I have a story about a dog, a dead rabbit and a steering wheel lock.

    "Quick, quick, I think the dog is going to attack our daughter!". I was taking a nap in our vacation rental house, when my wife woke me with those words. I ran outside, saw the dog very close to our daughter,, barking and acting very aggressively. Ran to the car a few meters away, grabbed the steering wheel lock (strategically placed on the front seat, since the dog had been acting threatening since our arrival), and started chasing the dog. Sadly, I did not catch it, it ran away too fast for me.

    Walked back to the owners house just opposite of ours and had a little chat with the owner, and after just a few words in, judged him to be a maniac.

    Well fortunately the police persuaded him to keep the dog inside the house after that. But that was not the end of it because the next morning there was a dead rabbit on our doorstep. We threw it out, since we didn't have any good rabbit recipes at hand and it looked very skinny anyway.

    I don't blame the dog, although I would probably have hurt it bad if I could've caught it, I blame the owner who was clearly an idiot. A vacation I'll never forget

    Ill spare the details as my cross to bear...every second of what happened has been burned into my memory and I now need meds to sleep, or I dont sleep. Ive known violence in my life...but this was something else.
    May the owner be found and punished. Absolutely horrible!

    My ex partners kids...they not really kids, they in their 20s kids of their own. Complicated but she is the previous owner of the dogs and the whined and cried fer me fer days after I left...she cant walk anymore and has all but given up on life, so them living with me meant we could at least stay friends. We get along better when we dont live under the same roof and I get along better with animals than I do with people so...complicated...its a 40s thing.

    Anyway...her kids are what ye might regard as being well known and very influential and ye break their mommas heart at yer own risk. Its got almost 2k shares on facebook within 3 hours...in fact it had 2.5k shares before I even knew it was on facebook by which time it was already too late. Of course now that just means he knows people are looking for him so finding him will take more time and more favours to repay later.

    I dont blame the dog or the breed of the dog...two of my best buds have fully licenced dogs they trust with their childrens lives, and I respect that. The breed I have actually dont have a wonderful reputation either...the problem is always the human influence.

    If ye go to a dog fight and they put two pits in and its a fight to the death, ye could put yer arm in there and they wont attack the human because they fear the consequences of doing so more than death itself.

    Humans were the ones who put that fear into them when they were pups and used it to make them better fighters on command. I didnt have mine from pups, even though I was there when they were born, so they will only ever be partially trained.

    Im well aware of what journalists are like, Ive dealt with them before...they use people and care little of consequences, thats a given...but they can be useful from time to time even if they dont know in what way. As it was, the story that ran in the daily mirror was mistaken on several little details, but by the time they were even aware of the mistakes, the whole thing just snowballed outta control on the internet and they didnt have time to edit the final copy.

    It really is a case of my friends being more outraged than me and they are the ones who took up the crusade to find the guy. I have issues with anger and empathy in real life to the point where I can appear to be very cold and emotionless...on the other end of the scale, rages are almost always destructive ergo I learned how to control my anger, but it took me into my mid 30s before I managed it completely.

    I am angry, but I am not outraged...I know Ill find the guy eventually, but too many eyes and ears are watching and listening. Ill just melt into the background and encourage this fuss to just vanish and fer the dust to settle. After everyone goes about their boring mundane lives again, then two things will happen. The first thing will be that he wont see it coming, and the second thing being he wont forget it either.

    On a more positive note, it wont be me...and thats also a long story which can remain shrouded in mystery methinks. Thanks everyone fer the support, especially fer the two wee horrors currently hogging the entire corner sofa that I normally chill out on after shovelling down half a kilo each of chicken and tripe mix...plates are being licked clean in under 15 seconds I got videos to prove it too...they gonna be ok baskically so a joy joy rainbow and happy ending in the end.

    Only it aint the end...not fer me anyway cos now, the initial shock has turned to anger which fer me, is never a happy ending. So I would respectfully ask the mods to close this thread and bow out while Im ahead...cos I have my own ideas about whats gonna happen next and Im not sure sharing those thoughts is a good idea.

    Problem being that writing is something I find quite therapuetic, so I sorta need to force meself to stop...or rather I need the mods to force the issue by closing the thread and me walking away and keeping my real life thoroughly offline as it were fer a bit. Im a very private person in real life and live a very solitude life by choice as its better fer others I care about too much to hurt. Friends yes, but they even more messed up than me so we managed to stay friends through 25 years of working alongside each other in a dangerous environment...those are the sorta friendships even a loner like me appreciates and they aint anti social like I am...

    And have less self control of their base emotions and my name is plastered all over a national newspaper in the first line on a click bait story...well, the Northern Ireland version of national to be precise, sounded better in me head. Its my worst nightmare truth be told...what I do and how I exist, I do in the background, that is why I am good at what I do...this attention messes with my inner karma and this is something I have taken very personally...which may not work out too good.

    So mods....do yerselves and me a favour and just close the thread now and again, thanks all fer the support...and try and understand this is now personal and something I need to take care of in me own way ^
