A Canophobe Bites Back
Yesterday, 5 year old Ellie Lawrenson was mauled to death by a pit bull.
The British attachment to the dog is a constant source of wonder to me, that a nation replete with human beings seemingly incapable of social interaction above the level of the glandular should bestow such enormous amounts of time, money and affection on disgusting, filthy, aggressive and sometimes lethal creatures with whom their owners will never be able to converse.
Dogs are wild animals. They cannot be properly domesticated and should be barred from all households containing young children.
They should be muzzled and leashed at all times when being walked.
And the second a dog turns on a human who is not its owner and so much as barks, the human should be entitled to kick it without fear of prosecution; the explanation 'I was only wanting to be friendly' providing an absolute defence.
