One more child mauled by a bullterier or a rottweiler. Face torn to pieces, arm bitten off.
With an approximate frequency of one time per month, I was reading such news while being in Lithuania.
Here, in Thailand, I can't help but notice the way local dogs are. Calm, lazy, lying around on the beach and posing a level "minus hundred" threat to the people around.
No muzzles whatsoever.
What are the reasons?
Apart from hotter climate in Thailand (hence, less energy to run around), I believe we are much more aggressive people. And it's being absorbed by our pets.
To be fair, I have to agree that people in Asia are much more cruel to animals than Europeans.
But then, I still can't justify that animals are cruel to us.
