Baillif If it was a prey attack and it certainly looked like one that is probably the easiest type of agreession to fix. That clearly isn't it's only problem if it's going after shelter workers. Give it the needle.

firestorm That was a scary video, it looked like the dog was hunting, the dog went right up to the child and bite and was shaking the child. Like my dog does to a stuffed toy. Glad the child will be ok. The dog should be put down.

Thanks for clearing that up! But I'm not sure if I understand, even if the dog does have rabies, why keep it alive any longer? Do they perhaps think that the victims who were bitten are going to get it? I don't quite understand.

I agree with Bill, that dog certainly appeared to be in hunting mode. It was stalking the child!

Darn scary if you ask me.

As much as I respect Cesar Millan I think this is a bad idea! I have read his books and have even seen a few of his television shows and I respect his views that a dog is a dog, and some of his methods are similar to what I do, some are not as well, but even if he does rehabilitate the dog, simply, it just seems to be a waste of resources and time when so many other worthy animals can equally be good pets and they have never harmed a person in their life! I think Cesar Millan must see this as a challenge or something, but also, from what I have read of his books, he seems to really want to preserve the life of any dog. But I guess this is an area where I don't agree with his methods.

EDIT: Why is the dog even quarantined anyway? Why has it not been put down straight away?
Maybe it's cheaper to quarantine the dog than it is to send the head off for testing. Maybe other diseases besides rabies may present themselves, and that knowledge would be good for the victims to have. Some things can be transmitted to humans.
