    Default elderly lady killed in pack attack.

    I just saw on the news, a 91 year old woman was attacked by a pack of three dogs, she died. Her daughter, 71, was also badly bitten by the dogs. Being an ex RAAF dog handler I've seen the damage dogs can do, I have numerous scars from my own PDs as well as other's PDs. I urge all dog owners to keep their dogs on lead when in public, it should be law. Everyone says 'my dog would never bite anyone', sadly that's not true, any dog will bite given the right circumstances. Sadly, not only have we lost this lovely 91 year old lady but, those dogs will also lose their lives. Just not fair, be responsible, never let your dog off lead in public and certainly never let dogs 'pack'. As much as I love dogs, dogs can be extremely dangerous, even the littlies!

    The dogs were NOT out in public, they escaped from the back yard of a home near the beach and attacked the lady as she was walking up from the beach after having a swim. They weren’t supposed to be out.

    Not really related, but as a parent with a toddler, there is nothing worse than people letting their dogs off a leash at a park or at the beach even when clearly signed as not allowed.

    I think I spent half of last Xmas holiday just hovering over my toddler at the beach we stayed near because so many people felt it was okay to let their dogs go bananas.

    And they never apologise if their dog rushes your toddler and they have to intervene, usually just sigh like you've ruined their day. Or huff, "He's not dangerous!" if your toddler gets scared and has to be scooped up, as though their dog running at your toddler was some unfair accusation on your part.

    You start by saying the dogs were not out in public and then immediately contradict yourself. But of course if they 'weren't supposed to be out' it's clearly nobody's fault. Were the dogs put down? Shame they couldn't put the owner down. There's really no place for dangerous dogs, especially in an urban environment.

    The dogs escaped their yard, the first poster intimated they were out not on a leash, which is true but they had escaped unbeknownst to their owner. According to reports, they’ve been captured by the council rangers and will be euthanised. The more of these types of dogs there are, and they are popular amongst the younger generation for various reasons, then there will be more of these incidents occurring, simple maths.

    It is the owners resonsibilty to ensure their dogs cannot escape. If dogs escape, obviously the owner didn't take precautions in ensuring his yard was escape proof. If you can't do that then you shouldn't have a dog.

    Such an awful event.
    I used to jog 6 arvos a week in Cairns, I was always nervous when passing houses with pigging dogs.
    Personally don't think you should be able to keep these sort of dogs in ordinary suburbia, as no matter what precautions are taken one day they will probably escape/wander.

    I live just down the road, from where it is. I would guess the fence would be low as most are along there on the beach side so maybe the dogs jumped out , also they are nearly all holiday homes along there so possibly the dogs are not there normally.
