Man bites dog

"When a dog bites a man that is not news, but when a man bites a dog that is news."
-- Charles Anderson Dana, 'What is News?', The New York Sun 1882 (Thanks to DogHause.com.)

OK, this is a "man shoots dog" story. So I guess it would only be news in New York if the dog shot the man.

An unleashed pitbull attacked a a small white bichon frise dog. The owner of the property where the attack occured and relative of the bichon frise owner shot and killed the pitbull. See the West Proviso Herald.

It sorta seems like the pitbull owner should get a ticket too.


  • If you had a choice between letting your family pet get mauled to death by a large, aggressive dog and illegally discharging an otherwise legally owned firearm, what would you do?

    I suspect a good chunk of the Earth's population would kill the offending canine.
