Pit bull disfigures a greyhound at Sea Point Promenade

You train it, and take it for walks in places where you are unlikely to see other dog owners. Like around the street.

If Fido is too retarded to be trained to actually behave around other animals then sending it to the great hunting ground above is the best option.
Or take it to on leash only places where you have distance from other animals
And if a dog is let off leash in an on leash only area and gets mauled, that's not my dog's fault.
 
Well to be fair, @Pitbull does not like greyhounds a lot... you can't blame him if one tries to sniff his butt and lick him.

That's what the promenade is though. On leash only, but many people ignore that, like this dimwit greyhound owner.

If you know your dog has a problem with other dogs and you take it to a place where you know there will be other dogs, you are the problem and you are liable for fido's actions. Going to the promenade, which is a place where there are a lot of people with dogs is asking for trouble.

Only time you wouldn't be liable is if you went to a place that you could reasonably foresee it not being an issue. Again, like walking on the street.

Yeah I disagree
This accident would not have happened if someone didn't break city bylaws

You don't get break the law and then use whataboutisms

So much as you want to be right, you aren't.

If I take my dog to the Promenade and its on a leash, and some other dog is off-leash and comes up to my dog and gets mauled then I'm not liable for fsck all if my dog is under my control and I'm not breaking the leash by-laws of the area.

**EDIT** just for completeness sake, the owner of the mauled dog is also 100% liable for any vet bills I have to incur for my dog as well due to their action/inaction and breaking of the leash by-laws.

I can guarantee that if this case went to a court the judge would throw it out. The pitti is not at fault whatsoever. ALL dogs can bite. It was defending its personal space.
 
If a dog isn't socialised to both people and other dogs , it shouldn't be allowed in a public space.
If it's not socialised it should be on a leash and muzzled.

All dogs can bite, obviously. However you guys keep telling me that they are dangerous dogs and need "special" and "dedicated" owners to handle them.

That already means you know there is a risk, which opens you up to liability.

No, if a dog is dangerous, it either shouldn't be in public, or should be both leashed and muzzled.
Pitbulls are by definition dangerous dogs, so should always be muzzled in public.
 
People have the potential to be dangerous also so we shouldn't take chances

And if you're in an on leash area, your dog should be on a leash... no matter how socialized
 
it almost seems some people commenting here have never had dogs. or large dogs.

no matter if a dog is socialised, if some obnoxious dog runs up to another dog and that dog doesnt like it, the dog will growl, snap or bite depending on how bad they are affected. their mouth is their main form of interacting with the world around them. they are dogs.

a golden retriever, the dog that befriends burglars to death, bit me over my face when i was a child because i ran up to it and put my face in front of his. this dog was highly socialised and has never snapped at anyone before, nevermind bite.
