There's something to be said for Darwinism, and should someone specifically try to aggravate an animal that can tear them to shreds, they deserve what they get from that.


It's law, poetic justice, outright justice, whatever you want to call it. You mess with the bull, etc., etc. I don't think too many people deserve to be torn apart by a rott, but this guy was certainly asking for it. Same thing with what they do to those bulls in Spain. No feelings of remorse for those idiots who throw burning spears and whatever else at these beasts. If they get caught, oh well. Shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Poor pooch. :,-(

I get chills when I read the details of the attack. I enjoy being around dogs and such, but I've had a few bad experiences with them.

In this case, the man was apparently taunting the dog, which subsequently led to the attack. The dog deserves a lot of sympathy here, as well as his owner. It would be an extremely unpleasant experience having to strangle your own dog, to say the least. With that being said, I would do it in a heartbeat to save a human life, no matter how despicable the human in question might be. Dogs are wonderful creatures, and their lives should never be considered invaluable. However, if there is ever a choice between a dog's life and a human's life, then the latter should always be chosen.

I'm sure PETA will have a field day with this one...

Not that I am blaming the owner of the dog, but I have been wondering.....did he just sit there and allow the drunk idiot to tease the dog or was he inside or not around them when it happened. :-?

I would assume that the owner was inside the house while the victim was outside with the dog. Otherwise, I agree, it would be extremely ignorant to allow a drunk man to taunt an obviously uncomfortable dog.

Sounds like some blame to spread all around here. Stupid drunk was an idiot to provoke the dog. Also though I gotta wonder about the owner - a Rotty is very intelligent and easily trainable dog, a dog that is this is this big and this powerful, must, absolutely must be properly trained - the owner should have been able to control the dog with verbal commands or a quick tug on the collar to get it to cease an attack. I've trained lots of German Shepherds (also easy to train) and Alaskan Malamutes (not easy to train), and I've always trained them to cease fighting on my command, usually with a verbal command, but always at least with a physical correction. This is what can happen when big, powerful dogs are not properly trained, especially if they are allowed or encouraged to have a mean streak (don't know if that was the case here, but a lot of people get big powerful dogs and think it's cool for them to have a nasty temperament).

How did you miss this story stomper? ;-)

Seriously, what kind of idiot taunts a 125-pound dog? Even someone who's drunk should know better than that. What really got to me was that this story portrayed the dog as some savage animal.

A vicious attack by a large Rottweiler Wednesday night has left a 51-year-old Ottawa man with severe injuries to his arms and substantial blood loss.


The ferocious bites from the seven-year-old, 125-lb., dog ripped open the victim’s left bicep, his right shoulder and “shredded” his right arm from the elbow down, said Wilton and police.


Maybe I'm overreacting, but from the sounds of things, it wasn't the dog's fault, and the dog was just responding to instinct, not randomly attacking innocent people. :-t

We all agree that its not the dogs fault.....but Im just trying to determine who is dumber, the guy that taunted the dog or the owner. :-?

True, it wasn't the dogs fault, but the owner should have been able to stop the dog. You shouldn't have to kill your dog to control it!
