An Iowa man died over the weekend after police say he was fatally injured while saving the life of his 5-year-old daughter who had been mauled by a dog.
This makes me so sad … and frustrated, and angry. My heart is heavy and I pray comfort and blessings upon those who lived … and my God welcome and hold close – the man – the father and husband … that was killed.
I have written many times of the subject of killer dogs … literal deadly weapons when raised by so many people for so many wrong reasons. Personally, I believe the breeds in question – ought to be illegal. This is one kind of animal that man made common – that we can do without!
Killers* they are … born and bred to be.
*Not every single one, not all; I understand, and know for sure – there are exceptions!
Never the less, the breeds are prone … pre-determined genetically – to behave in very dangerous, very inhumane ways – particularly with an ‘eye’ toward small dogs, children, and even big strong adults when such situation presents.
A man [or woman] without a gun or weapon – and the determination to use it – will be killed if such a dog attacks. No doubt.
The breed(s) need to be outlawed.
I’m just sayin’ … .
