Today’s terrible story of the 14 year old girl killed by four ‘out of control’ dogs is “the elephant in my room” today. As I cuddle my dog, Sadie, this morning, I am deeplySadie worried. Am I fooling myself? Is this the UK’s version of the ‘US gun problem’? If I believe that I have the right to own a powerful dog because I have it under control and it gives me pleasure, should I not be against gun control in the USA? I know that it is a question of scale and in the end we don’t ban cars because they kill people, but it would be wrong to say that the issue does not disturb me.
