Around the Intarwebz

A man is dead after being mauled by at least 9 dogs of various breeds in Ohio. It is unknown why the dogs attacked.

The owner of two German Shepherds who attacked a Golden Retriever and the dog's owner faces reckless endangerment charges.

A Malamute who ripped the shirt of a girl (the shirt ripping was called a bite and attack) inspired a fight between the dog's owner and the child's mother. Good lesson to teach!

A man was killed by his "pet" boa constrictor.

The Bernalillo County DA's dog is in the news again after biting her grandson in the face. The grandson was teasing the dog by giving him food. The dog bit someone who had teased him as well - by reaching over a fence and trying to pet him on the head. Apparently the owner is confused about what constitutes teasing. Last time I checked, feeding and petting are not mocking behaviors. The dog is an Old English Sheepdog.

A Great Pyrenees suffered brain trauma and subsequent behavioral problems after being beaten by an angry neighbor. The dog was accused of barking too much. The neighbor came over to complain and claims the dog, a large dog by the way, "attacked him". That attack was so severe that the man beat the dog's head with his cane - the dog needed 3 hours of emergency surgery to repair the damage. The man was fine. The dog changed after the attack and subsequently bit a cyclist. The dog has been euthanized and, strangely enough, the charges were dropped against the neighbor who beat the dog.

Companion therapy rabbits cuddle with seniors.

A lurcher cross attacked a Dandie Dinmont terrier.

Don't mess with groundhogs. They could be rabid and KILL YOU DEAD. Minus the kill you dead, except if you don't get the shots afterwards.

“I always tell my friends how vicious an animal she is. No one believes me but I think this is proof. I don’t know what I would do without her,” said Konstadt (guy whose dog killed the groundhog).

Love that boast so much - not. Hopefully his dog is lucky and was UTD on her rabies shots...
