5 thoughts on “2005: Authorities Investigate Frequency Of Guide Dog Attacks

  1. I believe it is a felony in some states for a person to injure or kill a service animal who is performing its duty…so why is it A-OK for a human to allow their pit bull to do it? The pit bull is just the instrument, the weapon.

    Shouldn’t owners of dogs that maul service animals be charged with a crime?

  2. I am sick and tired of pit bulls attacking these gentle creatures who are just minding their business.
    BAN THEM!

  3. maybe it's time for a new guide dog "accessory" – a cattle prod or a can of mace, carried in the back of the guide dog's harness, and labelled "for emergency use only".

    it's understandably difficult for a person who needs a guide dog to fend off a pitbull in the first place, but it isn't easy for a passerby, who wants to help, to do it barehanded, either.
