Noosa dog legal battle

Obviously he shouldn't have been allowed to escape twice after killing a small dog.

Owners have only got themselves to blame. The dog has got out at least 3 times and he has attacked 3 dogs, killing one. PTS is the right answer

I feel for the dog, who has been failed badly by its owners. However, there is no excuse for the dog being in a position to escape or attack again, after killing that first poor little dog. On both of the subsequent escapes it also attacked dogs and as a result, one dog has suffered an horrific death and two others have no doubt been somewhat traumatised, not to mention the trauma to the owners of the attacked dogs. I wouldn't be comfortable having this dog remaining in society and free to attack again when the owners slip up on containment of the dog.

Three strikes, definitely out !!

Feel for the dog as once again it shows irresponsible owners. Getting out once and killing a dog is bad enough but still able to escape its yard twice more is just unforgivable.

agree with the above - some times an animal is simply too dangerous to be in society, and three attacks to me puts this dog in that category.   

 

From what I read, the owner may not have helped the situation (dog escapes control 3 times - seriously??? why not major precautions after the first attack), but there are also times when a dog is just straight out aggressive and unpredictable.

 

I do get a little tired of the 'but he/she is so fantastic with my dog/child/cat/whatever'.  How does that minimise/excuse repeated attacks?  Imagine that as a 'defence' for a human - "oh, he/she is great with their family, so please excuse attacks on random people".  I bet that everyone in the district was terrified of walking their dogs (or their families) in that neighbourhood.   I know I would be.

 

I must say when I see the 'but fluffy is fine with my dog/child/cat/whatever' I immediately put the owner in the 'has no clue' pile, and that they are not looking at the situation for what it is, or want to improve it (maybe I am just harsh)
