Yes, they can sense fear & vulnerability. I was jumped on by a large German Shepard that was running loose in my parent's neighborhood when I was 17 years old & 6 months pregnant & trying to cross a 4-lane street.

I say 'jumped on' versus 'attacked' because in retrospect; I realized that while he certainly could have torn me to pieces ... he didn't even take one nip. He just kept jumping on me & pushing me with his front paws on my back ... I'm not so sure he wasn't just trying to 'herd' me out of the road!

I never trust electric fences; my neighbor swore he had one and didn't want me to put up a fence in my yard but I had two small dogs and I used a regular fence. Not long after, one of his dogs ran away and he determined the electric fence wasn't even working.

This poor girl; so pretty and only 19 years old.

Donít count it out. From the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Dog bites pose a serious health risk to our communities and society. More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States, and more than 800,000 receive medical attention for dog bites, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). At least half of those bitten are children.

Mastiff, Rotts and a Pit. Who's surprised? I weep at the loss of life because fools continue to protect and defend dangerous breeds.

Some day I should take the time to register on a message board and post the craziest opinions imaginable, then come back to defend them, just to see the reaction.

Props to you my friend for beating me to the idea. Well played.

Electric fences suck, dogs easily go right through them, especially in an excited state of mind.

I have no idea what is so damn difficult about controlling your dogs.

I read one of the owners said "they were doing their job", wow...

Dogs do have a pack mentality, sort of like teens, one is fine, put them in a group, the probability of bad things happening increases.

Bunch of trash living in multiple trailers on a property with a bunch of nasty, aggressive dogs. I guess that's why there's things like HOAs and gated communities.

They didn't have to, to protect the officers and the woman. It's not part of their duty to kill animals that don't pose an immediate threat. There is a protocol, I'm sure. So they followed the protocol and took the animals to the animal center, where they will probably be euthanized.

Thank you.

There aren't words to describe the degree of tragedy this is....and all the horrible stories like it that we've seen. As expected, though, the dog defenders are here right on cue with hearts bleeding for these obnoxious and deadly animals as they circle the wagons in their protection. The dogs killed a beautiful young woman, but their hearts are with the dogs. Their hearts are always with dogs. Utterly irrational and yet considered perfectly normal by most. At least most expressing a viewpoint.

But, on the bright side, I see lots more sanity in this thread than I'm accustomed to seeing on topics like this. Dogs and their sociopathic owners drag down quality of life in every neighborhood in which they are found. It sure is refreshing to see more here who understand that.

Justice in a world with a sane perspective on the menace that dogs are would have all of these dogs dead (hopefully they already are) and their owners behind bars for life.
