5 thoughts on “2017 Dog Bite Fatality: Newborn Mauled to Death by Family Dog in Cleveland, Ohio

  1. Having any dog and particularly a large one around an infant is a severe injury or fatality waiting to happen. Just foolish.

  2. In my opinion, the whole practice and idea of guard dogs needs to end. Too many people now think they can or should just get an intimidating, aggressive dog and it will somehow always make the correct decisions in relation to guarding its family.

    There was a news article not too long ago about a German shepherd that had attacked an intruder in a home, and the owners were proud of the dog's actions and their blood-spattered walls. Personally, I would be horrified. If the dog can do that to anyone it perceives as a threat, it can do that to someone who isn't really a threat, like a friend or neighbor–or, worse, the new baby.

    This fantasy about dogs being able to make those decisions and being ultimately loyal is ridiculous.

  3. And, Dennis, the animal rights extremist movement really knows how to grease the palms of legislators.

    Key offenders in this regard: the Best Friends Animal Society. If you donate to them, stop. Now. And tell your friends to do the same.
