Good Decision

A 4-year-old girl was transported to a local hospital after she was bitten by a dog Sunday night in south Phoenix. According to the dog's owners, the girl was in her own backyard when she stuck her arm through the fence and the dog, a rottweiler-pit bull mix, bit her. The dog's owners told ABC15 News that they have children and they've never had problems in the past. They also said that they've had problems with their neighbor's children taunting the dog in the past. Police said they do not plan to issue citations to the dog's owners.

Amazing. Many times, the owners are still charged with a crime and the dog is put down. At some point, people, regardless of their ages, have to be responsible for what they do. And parents have to be responsible for what their kids do, and live with the consequences. I am not happy that a kid got bitten, however. This wouldn't happen in an ideal world, but we don't live in an ideal world.
