Proper Means

My response to this story should come as no surprise to anyone:

In a horrifying attack, Angeline Mahal, in her 50s, died after she was savaged by her [own] two XL bullies in east London yesterday. It was thought to be the first fatal attack by dogs exempted from the nationwide ban on the breed.

James Hare, a qualified dog trainer who teaches children how to behave around dogs, stresses that any dog has the ability to attack and we’re far more likely to get bitten by smaller breeds. But he adds that it is the size and strength of an XL Bully that gives them a stronger jaw lock and makes them more deadly.

…and then trots out all the usual useless bullshit about distracting it with food, etc. etc., when really all that’s necessary is

“Oh but Kim,”  I hear, “we live in Britishland where, by law, we’re not allowed to own eeeevil guns or dangerous items like pepper spray!  What can we do?” 

Vote for politicians who will overturn those stupid laws.  Otherwise, it looks as though you’ll just have to get used to being Alpo.


  1. Ya know, be it sticks or ‘sheen gunz, criminals will always have the means to harm others. I, therefore, will always have multiple means of thwarting and eliminating said criminals. The gov’t, curious neighbors, and busy body relatives have nothing to say about it, no more so than agrueing gravity is simply a state of mind. The very nerve.

  2. I’m a dog person and love the Golden Retrievers that I have had. Despite the training and breeding, dogs are animals and animals will be animals. Pepper spray can be an effective step to counter a dog’s aggressive and violent nature. Firearms can absolutely terminate an animal’s aggression whether they are four legged or two legged. I usually keep pepper spray in my pocket when out in the woods with my dog because other people let their beloved family pets off leash and they can become aggressive. The pepper spray deters the aggressive family pet and their angry owner can take the dog to the vet for treatment. If the aggressive dog needs to be dispatched, the owner will get pissed and might earn more of the same.

  3. I have a very nice walking stick. It’s nice and stout, not one of those pansy walking canes.
