Following the tragic death of a child, mauled by a Rottweiler dog, you may have seen the interview on Sky News, of a spokeswoman from a group called "Deed Not Breed", claiming that no one breed of dog is more dangerous than another.
Although she firmly believes that Labradors and Spaniels present the same level of danger to children as Pit Bull Terriers and Rottweilers, the tragic statistics show otherwise and her ludicrous argument was very politely disassembled by the facts.
However, of late I've noticed, as you might have, an increase in the number of the larger and more aggressive breeds in Thanet, sometimes in pairs and rarely under the firm control of the owner. The popular Thanet Pit Bull appears to be in decline but other unusual breeds that I recognise from TV coverage appear to be on the increase locally or at least that's my impression.
Have you noticed the same?
