Local Reaction to Dog Mauling

From KBND

A Bend police officer who specializes in animal control is reacting to the fatal dog mauling over the weekend on the Oregon coast. When the sheriff's office first reported the death they inaccurately identified the dog as a pit bull. Officer Crea Lancaster of Bend police says people miss the point when they focus too much on the breed of a dog: "Any dog is capable of killing an infant."  He says the family probably made a mistake in this case when they put the baby on the floor in front of the dog, and the dog may have gone into normal dominating behavior. “To put that infant down in front of a dog that feels that it should be higher up in the hierarchy, is just a recipe for disaster.”
