http://news.sky.com/home/article/16154063A man has been arrested after a dog mauled a six-year-old girl in front of her parents, biting off part of one ear.
The seriously injured girl suffered wounds to her neck and shoulder during the attack in northeast London.
Officers said she would probably be scarred for life.
Witnesses told how the girl's father repeatedly punched the animal in the head in a bid to save his daughter. She was screaming "mummy, mummy, help me".
This story comes a week after my wife had to put herself between a dog and my three year old daughter. She got clawed and muddy for her trouble but my daughter was unscathed. The mid 40's dopey bitch of an owner was remarkably unconcerned apparently.
My wife and I were previously attacked by an out of control border collie some years back. She got bitten. I foiled the attacking collie using my bicycle and then put the absolute fear of god into the moronic late 50's couple who owned it.
Now, the ususal caveats apply and to put it into perspective it is a minority of owners that are UTTER EFFIN MORONS and it's these that spoil it for all the other responsible owners out there. I was at the park yesterday and every single dog was well behaved. Owners were wandering about with their poo collections and not one dog looked out of control. If they can do it, why can't they all?
If this was my daughter the owner would have far more to worry about than whether his precious dog was going to be destroyed or not.
So what's the answer to this then? An ear for an ear?
It makes my piss boil almost as much as Craig's.
