RE:RE:RE:Should dangerous dogs be banned in NZ?
Posted by iiq374 - 14/Jun/2008
This issue always irks me every time the media stirs it up - mainly because of the general level of ignorance. What surprises me the most is the level of ignorance amongst dog owners though...

In terms of the suggestion about dangerous dogs - there already is an increased fee and requirement around menacing dogs - which can be classified by breed.

But more to the point there is no study which has managed to statistically show that any breed is more likely to be involved in a dog attack than its proportion of the population. However they have shown that 85% of dog attacks are by male unneutered dogs, and over 50% are by chained dogs.

Forget the breed aspect and actually pay some attention to the facts and not the media hysteria.
