I’m back on the press again. Take this story from Fox News. Madisyn Shelton is a three year old girl in Alabama. She was attacked by her neighbor’s dogs and bitten more than 50 times.
The news article never mentions the breed of the dogs involved. One has to watch the video to see footage of the dogs in custody. It’s only then that the viewer sees a Labrador Retriever and a Cattle Dog. Breed isn’t mentioned in the headline. Breed isn’t mentioned in the story.
Fortunately, Alabama has an ordinance that allows it to adequately target dangerous dogs, so the dogs will likely be euthanized. Hopefully, Madisyn Shelton makes a full recovery.
And while we’re on the subject of dangerous dogs and breed, Coyotes attacked a Chihuaha in Littleton, Colorado, which is just outside of Denver. Denver, of course, has a ban on Pit Bulls. Fortunately, the little Chihuahua didn’t live in Denver, else he wouldn’t have had Pit Bull neighbors to come to his rescue. Yes, that’s right. Buster, the Chihuahua, was saved by his neighbor’s Pit Bulls. They ran the Coyota off and then stayed with the Chihuahua to protect him.
“They were circling him and sitting by him. Making sure he was all right,” Buster’s owner said.
