    “Social constraints are the external controls on individual freedom maintained by the society.”
    Aw we have laws for the prevention of cruelty to animals and the murder of people.
    100% idiot.

      I tried to invoke our laws on cruelty to animals recently, regarding a dog kept under obvious and widely agreed cruel and unsanitary circumstances. Dog Control & SPCA responded quickly, to their credit, and I got told second-hand, “We’ve seen worse. Nothing we can do. Sorry”

      I should have known. We’re prepared to accept an horrific annual toll of children having their faces torn off and old people being bitten and traumatised to justify our “personal freedom” to guard ‘private property’ with vicious attack dog breeds [like Americans with their guns] …

      So a dangerous breed, angrily living in captive filthy squalor is obviously nothing to worry about … housed, fed and watered …

      Check out these graphs and the ones on the previous page 2 – [scroll down]

      And here’s an indication of things to come from our much larger five-eyes ‘neighbours’ …

      “Preliminary “final” 2017 dog attack data from the U.S. and Canada suggests some good news, in that “only” 989 dogs participated in killing or disfiguring humans, down from the 2016 record 1,075. But the bad news is that those 989 dogs killed 57 people, 11 more than the previous record of 46 ….

      Fuck! That is “good news” like Judith Collins is National’s “safe option” …. Yeah, Right!

          I don’t know if the pit bull who ran at my little dog would have bitten him – she clawed my jeans trying to reach him. The shocked owner called her and she immediately ran back in. I grabbed him up by the collar and held him in my arms. He’s a brave little dog, but he yelped in terror. I am glad to think that I would have taken the bite if it had come to it, but was glad that it didn’t.

          The other dog was perfectly peaceful again when she’d been called back, and the owner was obviously in shock, too, I must say that most pit bulls whom I have encountered have been polite, but I am not silly enough to think that they have all been brought up to be so.

          The mother of a child in Hamilton demanded that the large black dog who bit her child be put down, but not many people had too much sympathy for the child and felt that he’d asked for it. The dog was a friendly pet who’d been teased by the child until he gave a warning growl. The child was told to stop teasing. The next thing was the child grabbing the dog’s balls, pulling them and squeezing them – hard. The dog did what any dog would do, even the most docile.

          Putting Judith Collins in the same sentence as dogs is a bit harsh on dogs , remember dogs have standards to…

            Disregard the last paragraph, Lurchy. You could say in your case it’s redundant.
