Irene Koutsounadis, 90, is in a critical condition in St George Hospital having undergone surgery for injuries to her head after she was attacked by her daughter's American pit bull terrier

Golly gee, I never would have guessed.

Not bad, though I think I'd prefer a longneck so you could swing it.

What would be the best beer bottle for personal defense?

I was a little disappointed that the story didn't end with the dog drinking the six pack, them making up, and then all going out for more brewskis, like proper Australians..

Armed "only" with a six pack of beer?

You ever had VB? It's a chemical weapon!

But did the beer survive? This is important.

They wated the beer for a 90 year old?? I mean really. How much time does she really have left that would warrant wasting perfectly good beer to save her?

Every dog owner. Ever.

"I keep them locked up. Did you do something wrong to provoke them?"

"I usually keep the gate closed. This time I guess I forgot and they got out. They're friendly though, real sweet. Did you do something to provoke my dogs? Because that wouldn't have happened."

...

Dogs are wolves. They do not behave well in doggie jail (cities). The best they can be is an angry noise, all night, that makes your neighbor want to kill you.

What kind of beer, and was it drinkable afterwards? I mean she is 90...

Um I'm pretty sure this article is a contender for best and well written news of 2014.

It has all we wanna know.  Funny story from those involved, type of beer, and what will happen to the animal.

Dead.  Fine.

This is my vote.  40 oz bottle with the long-ish neck for grip.

These guys were real heroes !   I was watching a youtube video and (they're always extremely truthful and accurate), when a dog has it's jaws locked on someone like that, you have to get behind it, grab a hold of the neck and dig your  fingers into its throat until the gag reflex is triggered.

That was great! Thank you!  I had heard "pull the back legs out" technique, but a death grip pit bull needs a bit more.

Dog's a dick but did they have to say "destroyed"? What, are they gonna shove it through a meat grinder? Just say euthanized, it's makes you sound less blood thirsty.

Agree with ya.  Same deal with gun owners.

I still don't trust that dog. Or any dog around my 2 year old.

Pits get a bad rap because they are big pussies that would rather maim and play with your parts.

Curious about this. Locked up where? If you keep a dog locked in a crate all day every day they tend to get a little wonky.

It is understood that the dog, which was taken away to an animal shelter, will be destroyed.

 Pretty serious if you're going to put it in a shelter and then destroy the shelter.
I keed.
It's grammatically correct, for a change of pace.

LOL. Your list is probably mislabeling the types of dogs involved right? I mean, if the media can't get it right when Pits attack, they probably also can't get it right when pits do something helpful. And those articles span at least 5 years, while you can match the list of attacks over the past year.
