With an aggressive dog? I was watching Judge Judy last night (yes, I'm sad ) and one case involved a Pitt bull Terrier that has badly bitten a 10 year old girl. Apparently, she was riding her bike and noticed someone painting a wall which drew her attention. She cycled over and asked what the guy was painting. After a short discussion she went to ride off on her bike when the dog attacked her leg. The scar was quite horrendous. The owner did not deny the attack, but suggested that the dog was provoked when the child tried to befriend it! My question is this. Do you think the dog should be put to sleep and if not why? What would you do in these circumstances?
