I love the fact that the cat chose to body check the dog.   Cause that's a fat cat.

I wonder why we call it "destroyed" as opposed to "executed"... to me, the word destroy implies utter and complete annihilation... like being hit with a death ray that vaporizes you or something... destroyed can also imply this:

"Clearly in the wrong?" It's not like the dog didn't change lanes without signalling. It trotted right up and ripped the shiat out of that kid without any provocation.

Apparently you haven't heard much because from the first report, it has been identified as a neighbor's dog.

Never had a cat growing up, rescued a stray and named him Zimba.

After taking my son to the zoo the other day and finally seeing how closely the big cats (lion, tigers, panthers, etc) acted like my little house cat, I came to realize that if Zimba was about 30 lbs heavier, he would have hunted me for fun and eaten me already

This, too. The owners need to be sued into oblivion.

Want a dog? Learn how to take care of it. Keep it chained outside (fenced in, at least, but make sure it can't escape, either). Even if the dog isn't likely to attack anybody (and all dog owners seem to believe this no matter what, which is dumb, as well), the dog is still in danger from traffic, animal control, and neighbors, and additionally, even the friendliest of dogs will tear through people's garbage and cause other problems.

Live in the country? Well, that's a great place to have a dog. In the city or burbs? Not so much.  Live in the burbs and have a noisy dog? Your dog is not in a good place; treat it better by moving to a more rural area, or find a more suitable home for it.

I have two.

A 31lb Maine Coon and an 18lb Norwegian Forest Cat.

My big one, Nemo is about as friendly and chill as an animal can be. His canines are over 1" long.

The Norwegian, Dory, isnt as big, but she's quite full of attitude.

I like larger cat breeds because they tend to be mellow.

That stems from the cradle of human history, where we started using the dogs that didnt bite us and to kill the others that would. Remember, this seemed like an unprovoked attack, without any reason than "im gonna rip the shred outta that little boy". Thats how we evolved them, through natural selection, from wolves to chihuahuas and pugs.

With cats we have a much more relaxed outlook, they dont care if they are with us, they like our attention and food, and they, once in a while, prove useful to us. Some species have been evolved, again through natural selection, to be more friendly or playful or to have no fur.

I suppose "executed" is generally reserved for people found guilty of criminal acts, "destroyed" seems to fit for animals that attack out of aggression in that the remains are, ultimately, destroyed in an incinerator (often after a necropsy for rabies testing)  -  The phrase "put down" is also used but calls to mind Far Side cartoons - you know, sad-faced dog with human standing over it "AND you smell" with the caption "Joe didn't want to put Fido down"

I had a cat that attacked a medium dog, running it off the lawn....not a child in sight....unprecedented and seemingly without provocation other than feline/canine chemistry.

This kitty should be let alone to stay home and eat lizards or whatever.

the two litter-mates we had went through, roughly, a quarter-acre of houseplants, a gross of toilet paper, two sets of window sheers, one lamp and the equivalent of a Time's sunday paper worth of misc stuff.

yes, but we also cremate humans as well... so aren't we destroying them? I think the death ray idea has merit... and of course being "destroyed" on the dance floor... I just think "destroyed" sounds more super villain then run-of-the-mill so to speak.

we humans do make some weird choices sometimes in language.
