Is that why the post on the other side of Reay-ish takes so long to get delivered?

No that's because they have to pass through the politburo postal checking station rumoured to have had a big yes sign outside recently

i don't know what's wrong with me

have read up on this story and the guy was lucky to survive and nearly had his arm ripped off

despite this i'm thinking how much this divil dug wielding twat will cost the nhs and then claim maximum disability for the trauma

if i'd have been there, my youngest would have filmed it while i 'rescued' the poor fucker with my terrible aim

True, very true. Proving, yet again, that I have lived a sinful life. I reside now, in my dotage, on the banks of the Styx. It feels like that every day.

And yet another infant killed by an out of control dog.  Sad  Sad  Sad

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-29491535

And still no sign of any action from either Scottish or UK governments to stem the heartbreaking attack after attack from dogs that are not under control, or are of a savage breed, despite their owners claiming "he's never done anything like this before".

Time for a fit for purpose dog licencing scheme.

I think a fit for purpose parent licensing scheme might also be introduced!!

Along with the saying;

         " he's never done that before"

We could add;

         "I only took my eyes off him for a second"

Really? !!! Rolling Eyes

Not sure I could get a licence for my parents!

Its partly comforting to see someone from Daventry District Council is saying this is a wake up call for the re-introduction of dog licencing.  But it needs to be more than a case of simply turning up at the post office with your 37p and getting a bit of paper.

I see that even the neighbours in Morning Star road in Daventry have described them as Divil Dugs;

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-n...dog-attack-neighbours-say-4386880

as well as describing them as "pitbull type dogs"

When will we learn and do something about this?

Don't get too wound up Orky. These tragedies only seem to affect a certain element of our society that we don't give a crap about so let 'em get on with it. Razz

Not just the most fair, Duke, to the 6 month old bairn that is no more.

And it might no be a bairn on a housing scheme next time, but someone like yourself, walking down the street.

Good God! I don't walk down the street, certainly not their streets! Shocked

Looks like someone had a lucky escape from this one;

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-29757923

Although they could do with sharpening up their accuracy.  However, I expect that when you are being pursued by a snarling divil dug that is intent on eating you, then the fact you are shiting yourself may have a detrimental effect on your aim.

From the angle of entry of the bolt, I would say the dog was running away from the perpetrator.

Probably escaped from its junkiechavmiester owner in a bid for freedom!!! Sad

Tell me your having a laugh, this poor dog looks like it has been used as sport. Not acceptable on any level.

Its not the dogs fault, its the humans!

Just shows how sick society is becoming when people will do this to an animal for fun .  Mad

All depends on the circumstances.

What is highly conspicuous by its absence in this case is the "loving owner" saying that "Ziggy woud never hurt a fly".  He appears to have no owner, and is presently in boarding kennels, according to;

http://www.westerndailypress.co.u.../story-23390741-detail/story.html

So there are all sorts of potential scenarios including;

1.  His owner had too many near misses with him.  Maybe he nearly savaged the owners child, and the owner thought he would put him down on the cheap before he killed a kid

2.  He was found worrying livestock and someone tried to legally shoot him (not quite sure if using a crossbow is legal, but shooting a dog that is worrying livestock certainly is)

3.  He was out in remote woodland with his owner who was doing a bit of crossbowing, and turned on him, so the owner shot him in self defence.

With the absence of a "loving owner" and the dog being found in "remote woodland", this doesn't sound like your average Glasgow housing estate "sport shooting"

Or simply, some sick chavvy bastardos were just tormenting the poor beast, as they do!!

In terms of shooting accuracy, close but no cigar!!
