An interesting court case is going on in Arvada, CO. If people are allowed to sue over being scared by a big dog, we’re all going to be in big trouble. If cities start putting dogs down for scaring people, we’re in even bigger trouble.
My personal opinion, after reading the info on the website and listening to the dog owner on Peter Boyles’ radio show, I’ve concluded 1. this is an extreme case of breed discrimination (had this been a small dog that “attacked” this woman, nothing would have come of it) and 2. the woman who claims to have been “attacked” is simply looking for a pay day through insurance or another route and after several years of working for insurance defense attorneys in Denver, I have absolutely zero tolerance for these types of people – they are the worst kind of people.

In everything I’ve read and heard about this case, this incident was not an “attack” – if it had been someone probably would have ended up severely injured or dead. It appears by all the documentation, no actual skin was broken in the so-called “attack.”
This could set some pretty nasty precedent if the dog is put down. Please read the details as laid out on the website and sign the petition linked on the website above. Please pass this information on to as many people as possible (especially dog owners).
