Rottweiler attacks kid, dad does the right thing and...

If an animal attacked my child, then I would do the same thing. Sad, terrible, and awful - but it has to be done to any violent animal, so the dad did the right thing when he shot the dog. Should've shot it sooner, but too close to the child to risk it. News 24 posted: "3-year-old Marco was attacked by the family rottweiler at home on Tuesday. Francois Slabbert, Marco's dad told News24 the dog had never shown aggression before and grew up with his son. Slabbert, who lives in Hennenman in the Free State, says he was about 5 kilometres outside of his town when one of his domestic workers called him and told him his dog had attacked his son. Slabbert says it's unclear why the dog attacked his son, but made the tough decision to shoot the dog in order to protect his family and workers. "I put down the dog myself," he said. Slabbert acknowledged the backlash he has received from people on Facebook, and speculated that many of the people criticising him for his actions don't have children. Marco was admitted into hospital and underwent surgery. Slabbert says the skin was detached from his scalp. The toddler is recovering well at home."
