Yes, all pet owners should be responsible for their pet's behavior. If a dog or cat attacks or even kills a person, then the animal should be put to sleep and the owner should be punished. People come before animals.

Yes, if it's a burglar or something like that invading your property, then I don't think an owner should be liable. It's different if the dog is trained to guard you and your family.

I have mixed feelings about this. People can get up to 20 years if it was their pet that killed someone. But rapists and murderers often get less than that AND get released early for good behavior. Bwuh?!

This is a tough one. I agree that owners should be punished if their dog attacks ,although 20 years seems like a bit much. But it also depends on the situation.
I am the owner of two pitbulls. I could say the same that my dogs have never been aggressive toward anyone, including my kids. But on the other hand we still take precautions. The dogs are in a fenced yard and they are on a chain. My kids never play in the backyard with the dogs unless we are back there with them and i would never let anyones elses children play around the dogs just cause you never know.
Also the owners of the 4 pitbulls were not being responsible, if they had a dog who had just given birth to puppies they should have known she may get on the defense if she thought anyone was a threat to her and her babies, even an innocent child. Thats with any dog whose just given birth.

This happened around 1976. I was playing in my back yard with my 2 dogs. A few neighbor kids wanted to come in and play. I invited them in. Once they were back there however something went wrong. One of the dogs, his name was king attacked one of the other was a little girl. She was younger than me. It was very scary. The other 2 kids immediately jumped up on the ladder of our swimming pool. Meanwhile our other dog ( Lady Bell) jumped on top of King to try to stop him. I called for my Mom and she ran out. As soon as she called King, he stopped. He came wagging his tail like he did a good job. The girl's nose was just about torn off. I forget how many stiches she had to have. Her father was angry and threatened to sue us but afterwards he found out that the attack happened in our yard and that my parents didn't know they were back there. We got rid of that dog after that happened. That's one day that I'll never forget. King was a Collie also...not a dog that is known to attack anyone. We didn't have her as a puppy though so we think maybe she was trained to protect the family like that.
