I think we need to give dogs a break in general. Seriously, how many dogs DO get put down because some smart ****d little kid stands at a fence, hitting it in the face with a stick, and it finally snaps and gives him a chomp? Is that the dog's 'fault?' I would say no! All animals react based on triggers... Some react 'positively,' and we would call them a good dog. Other's react 'negatively' and we class them as dangerous or put them down. Don't get me wrong, my heart really does go out to families who have had a dog attack on one of their children... I just think we need to step back and admit that sometimes, it really isn't the dog's fault. I cringe when I see some of my fellow herpers try to 'defend' their stance on snakes. They get on a forum, or a news article, and proceed to tell everyone in society off, and make stupid statements like 'that dog should be put down.' Guys... SERIOUSLY, you're doing way more harm than good. We should be trying to bridge the gap between herpers and non-herpers, not widen it!!!
