Shooting to defend, or shooting to prevent?

There are many people who are afraid of pit bulls. The dogs have a reputation for biting, and biting hard, sometimes fatally. So it comes as no surprise that a bystander who saw three pit bulls run up to a jogger in Tampa, Florida recently felt the need to protect the runner. The animals were not attacking or biting, just investigating. It will now be up to the county prosecutor there to decide if shooting two of those dogs, one fatally, was the right response or an over-reaction.

Dog in mauling case gets its own attorney

The Constitution guarantees a right to counsel in a court of law but does that right extend to dogs? A judge in Effington County, Georgia has appointed an attorney for a pit bull named Kno, who is accused of attacking and severely injuring a 5 year-old boy this last summer. Judge William Woodrum says he made the appointment "in the interests of justice." The lawyer will also represent the dog's owner, without charge. The county attorney says the dog doesn't need a lawyer but the judge stands by his decision.
