Have your say
As yesterdays events show in Leeds, with yet another fatility a pregnant woman is killed by an out of controlled dog.
All dogs should be licenced with a high payment for the owners of all dogs that are of the killers breeds,meaning those of the pit bull and attack minded dogs that go for the throat.
Pussy footing about with these owners,many of them who make their animals in to beasts,
should be caged them selves,as well as having their dogs destroyed.
I sympathise with the person who has just been bitten,some people will say get over it,but it is not them that has to do the suffering.
We as a nation have become too lenient with owners of vicious dogs and too frightened to speak out against neighbours who have such a dog,it case it offends them.
A life is worth more than a vicious dog attack.
