Care needs to be taken
The recent tragedy involving the death of a 74 year old jogger mauled by a pit bull has raised as many questions as it has outrage. The ownership of certain breeds of dogs is a point of contention between local authorities, the veterinarian service, and pet owners.
As voices demanding stricter enforcement against owning dangerous dog breeds, MSN Malaysia takes a look at the banned and restricted breeds here in Malaysia.
Why blame it on the dogs...they are innocent? All our local authorities does to these certain breeds of dogs (tragedy after tragedy) is to put them down. Killing these dogs does not solved the problem at all !!!
It is time for the local authorities to take action against the pet owners and dogs breeder and "NOT" the DOGS !!!!
it has NEVER been the dogs..only irresponsible dog owners! they couldnt be bothered to do their homework before getting a pup/dog. i heard a story of a man who dumped his dog because it was growing into a large dog. that idiot probably thought his saint bernard pup would grow into the size of a labrador! and remember,ALL dogs need to be trained,be it a poodle or a shepherd. difference is,the level of training. so dont blame the dog when you fail to play your part.
and of course,just because your house was broken into,you dont immediately get a pup,let alone a full grown dog! consider house alarm instead! at least nobody gets killed and there wouldnt be another "bad" dog!
A pit bull rescued the drunken owner from the train tracks in the US. So are all Pit Bulls dangerous ? This Pit Bull save a human being !
Lets hope that someone from the local authorities will look into this matter seriously of not putting the 3 years old pitbull to sleep. I personally feel that this cannot happened all the time that each time when Malaysia has such cases, it is always the dogs to be blamed. I do have dogs (big and small dogs) as well and if you do give them attention and love, the same will be given back to you... no matter what breed it is.
I understand that the pet owner was fine RMB1,000. I dont think this is good enough. A more severe punishment is recommended to the pet owner for this case.
This is something we as a human can change not blame the poor animals.
Now days there is a lot of CRIME done by Foreigners stop them from coming to this country.
Why not invite Ceaser Milan (Dog Whisperer) to come and give his comments if it is the dog or more likely the ower who didi tn train the dog and had to take the blame. All dogs can be trained as what we watch in his episodes.
These dogs are the ones required by the police, security firms and guards, drug enforcement agencies as they are intelligent and easy to train.
Its is more of the owners who need to do their bit to train the dogs and most of the time its the owners who are at fault, not the dogs.
