There a plenty of stories about dogs attacking when not provoked. People need to be responsible. Maybe<quoted text>
I was attacked by our family dog when I was 5 yrs. old, I did nothing to provoke him, I was just sitting on the porch. My Dad was sitting right next to me, the dog's mouth got clamped around my knee with his teeth embedded in my flesh. My Dad pryed the dog's mouth open, grabbed the animal by its hind legs and smashed its head against the corner of the house. In another instance a man from our church walked out on his back porch to feed his dog, the dog jumped out from behind a bush and ripped his face open, he still has the 3" scare 20 yrs. later.
some jail time will teach these negligent owners a lessons.
