Pit bull disfigures a greyhound at Sea Point Promenade

Feed these dogs to lions once and for all. Go release them at Kruger National Park.

It's even possible for a larger pitbull to kill a lion, if it is lucky and is fast enough to get it's jaws around the lions neck. If you release like 100's of pitbulls in Kruger National... there are going to be almost no animals left except pitbulls and lions and such.
 
Because people have it in their heads that muzzles are cruel, and mean your dog is a killing machine
Instead of people acknowledging that muzzles are a tool that also allow reactive dogs to enjoy being outdoors and in public.

I wouldn't mind muzzle training my ridgie, people love to just randomly walk up to her and touch her ridge on her back cause she's pretty. And if someone asks me why she's muzzled, I'm cruel, I'll tell them it's because of idiots like you

Get a spiked collar to go with it lol! I quite like the body harnasses that say I'm friendly, or I don't like other dogs etc etc.

There is also being leash trained. So my dog for instance I have leash trained so if I'm somewhere and there is no one else, I take him off and play ball (he fetches and brings back instantly, and nothing distracts him from his ball). But once someone comes with another dog I lift the leash with my arm and he comes and sits immediately.

This is obviously also cause we trained him from 8 weeks. Many dogs are rescues, or just couldn't be trained even though owners wanted to for many reasons. You can never assume with someone else's dog, and prevention is better than cure. If he bites, muzzle. If you unleash and he is a mad dasher going to everyone and everything, it's only matter of time.

Love Ridgebacks. Great dogs. Loyal AF. Also potent when they want to be.
 
Damnit, Google Gemini won't allow me to generate pictures of Pitbull the artist wrestling a Greyhound bus...

People like that are idiots, you never just walk up to a random person and their dog and start petting them, the dog I mean, it's OK if random people start petting you...

Thanks for taking the time to share this. COCT should be enforcing these rules and handing out fines to those who disregard them. Every dog has the potential to attack someone. It's only that the power breeds get singled out here.
@Nerfherder I'm hoping you can see the selfishness of people who disregard these rules in shared public spaces. It stops people from being able to get their pets outdoors and there is no ways you can control or stop your dog from just running up to people. Not everyone wants dogs approaching them.

Or go to a female pregnant colleague and touch her belly

Yup, our Ridgie is extremely territorial, it's actually a challenge
She takes her role of protecting our property from strangers very seriously... but it does help when I'm away for work and wife is alone at home.
 
sometimes dogs just dont get along, no matter if they are well trained.

it is really stupid to allow your dog to just go up to a strange/unknown dog and start sniffing.

they will allow some to sniff their bits while others get an aggressive response. this is not rocket science.


they are carnivorous animals that eat other animals, other dogs too.

they will eat their owner if their owner is dead.

My dog eats it’s own ****.
 
The pit bull clearly hasn’t been socialised, no need to bite a dogs face off just for coming to sniff your bum. It may be the Greyhounds owners fault for not having the dog on a leash but it would be sad for all the dogs there to need to be on a leash because a tiny percentage of dogs have an attitude problem, I’m regularly on the promenade and it’s great seeing dogs moseying around enjoying things and chasing balls.

That being said when I take a dog for a walk I’m acutely aware of where they are and what other dogs are in the area, I find it bizarre how some people seem to let their off-leash dogs go awol, even well behaved dogs can get spooked and run, run into the road or encounter a grumpy dog like the op and get ripped apart for no good reason.
 
no, that’s what cats will do. Dogs are often found starved to death next to their dead owner.

you dont need to argue with me. just search for it online, the results are all over the net.

there are some cases where dogs eat their dead owners even while there is regular dog food still available.


i know people who prefer dogs over cats will say what you said.

only dogs who don't see you as a leader will eat you.

people tell themselves that to feel better about their animals. but it is not true.

youre not a leader of anything when youre dead.

there are many examples of animals eating their deceased owners online. it has nothing to do with being the perceived alpha.


When dogs scavenged dead owners indoors, 73 percent of cases involved bites to the face, and just 15 percent had bites to the abdomen. By contrast, canines scavenging outdoors have a well-documented pattern, opening the chest and abdomen to eat the nutrient-rich organs early on, followed by the limbs.

It’s tempting to think that if you’re close to your dog and have treated it well, you’re off the hook if you die.
But dog behavior isn’t quite so clean cut. None of the case studies I saw indicated any prior history of animal abuse. On the contrary, several reports noted that the owners had very good relationships with their dogs, according to friends and neighbours.
Instead, consider a pet’s psychological state: “One possible explanation for such behaviour is that a pet will try to help an unconscious owner first by licking or nudging,” Rothschild writes in his report, “but when this fails to produce any results the behaviour of the animal can become more frantic and in a state of panic, can lead to biting.”
From biting, it’s an easy jump to eating, Rando says: “So it’s not necessarily that the dog wants to eat, but eating gets stimulated when they taste blood.”

There’s no way to guarantee that your pet won’t eat you if you die, apart from not having any pets. Even hamsters and birds have been known to scavenge on occasion.
