NOW,,if it was my pitbull,,that bit an attacker,,,,,would we all have the same opinion???


You chose your dog knowing the breed has a bad name due to its popularity with imbeciles who want a “tough” dog. No point having a chip on your shoulder about it now.

This is animal cruelty at its worst.

Let the poor animal finish his meal!

Dog bites can really get some nasty bugs into the wound…

Maybe the Canberra Hospital ED should keep an eye out for dog bite victims…

An extra packet of “Doggy Treats” under the Christmas tree for dog is in order I reckon. Hope the dog bit turns septic.

Nice work! What’s the bet these fools won’t learn from the experience? Hope the dog and his owner are OK

Much mirth in the office over this! Morons. Darwin candidates? If only all crooks were so dumb, the clean-up rate would be a lot better.
