Around the Intarwebz

A young girl walking a Golden Retriever or Golden Retriever mix lost control of her dog. The dog then savagely attacked a much smaller dog. The owner of the smaller dog was bitten by the larger dog during the scuffle. The smaller dog is expected to survive, even though he suffered extensive bodily wounds.

The cruel bloodsport of bullfighting has been banned in Catalonia!

A woman walking on the beach was attacked by an off-leash Boxer (who was supposed to be on leash). She needed 20 stitches.

A "normally nice" dog is being hailed as a hero after he attempted to attack a knife-wielding intruder. This is another example of our bizarre relationship with dogs. Had this been a "normally nice" dog biting a screaming, but non-threatening, person, the dog would have been labeled dangerous. But in a different setting, he is a hero. We seem to want to believe dogs are capable of discerning when it is and is not appropriate to engage in aggressive behavior...and they do, but to their own standards, not ours. Regardless, glad Bear was around!

A newly adopted Labrador Retriever attacked the family's daughter, causing 13-staples of damage in the child's head.

Man who slashed his friendly dog's throat (she survived) doesn't show up for his court appearance (no surprise).

A Rottweiler running loose was shot and killed. He did not bite anyone.

An off-leash Akita attacked a woman's collie and ended up biting her as well. The owner left without assisting either the woman or her injured dog.

A vicious dog hearing is being planned for a Corgi who bit a 7-yr-old on the calf severe enough to require a hospital visit and puncture wounds.
