biased reporting once again, the dog (with small man syndrome ) attacked the goanna who defended itself ,the people interfered trying to save the dog.You know what happens when you interfere in an animal fight !
Sorry the people were injured but the dog got what it deserved. The dog should have been on a leash to start with.
Does it say any where what sort of Monitor it actually was? Guess would be Lace but could of possibly been a Yellow Spotted or Sand also?
definitely a lacie
I suppose it's open season up there now on all BIG lizards.
Jack Russell Terriers, even ones depicted in the story that aren't pure bred should never be walked off leash... they are a genuine hunting breed right to their very core and will readily attack anything and everything regardless of its size, they have a bonafide No fear mentality. I'm 100% with you on this one that the elderly couple were in the wrong and the dog initiated the altercation... it's what JRT's do and do very well. My own Jack's admittedly and unfortunateky have dispatched several reptiles, snakes and monitors that have made it into my immediate house yard but whenever I'm out and about with them in the bush they are kept on a very short leash until our target (wild dogs) are acquired.
