Good. If that cat had half a brain, it would have ran. It was a mercy killing on the dogs part, the cat was too dumb to run. Would have happened sooner or later.

And I suppose by the same token, if I should bring my rare Testicle Biter Terrier to dinner with you, I should not be held culpable for him doing what he was bred to do? Its destruction of property.

They should shoot the dog ;)

Hawkscry: The artcile makes the point that the Dangerous Animals Act is designed to protect humans. If a terrier bites my nuts, I''m going to punt it across the room (and this is coming from a dog lover). If I take my pet rat out for a walk on its leash and don''t immediately pick it up when I see a cat coming for it, who''s being stupid? The cat''s owner, for not training her cat better? No, that one would be my fault. The article doesn''t mention if the woman had her dog on a leash, and if so, why she didn''t restrain it. I think she should be fined, but it''s hardly the dog''s fault for acting on instinct. It''s not like she''s training the thing to hunt and kill cats.
