    I have seen more cases on Judge Judy and Hot Bench about animal injuries and liabilities. Some of them are unbelievable just as you mentioned. It does happen and dogs end up being destroyed.

    As we can see, Guns are just one of many tools people can use for suicide or even for homicide. The difference between guns and vehicles, knives, poisons, drug overdoses and the like is that guns are the best tool that a person have for home and for personal protections. For that reason, getting rid of guns will have a much greater (negative) impact on people's ability to defend themselves that it will in keeping anyone from committing suicides.

    Maybe OT, but the general discussion involves suicide and suicide attempts so I hope it's okay...

    The availability of guns increases the risk of suicide attempts, and the lethality of guns increases risk of suicide to completion.

    There are almost twice as many firearm deaths by suicide than by homicide, and you are more likely kill yourself than to kill in self defense. Guns are more efficient for suicide which is part of the problem - an impulsive decision (and a readily available means to act on it) ends in death rather than a trip to the hospital.

    Of course it's every person's decision which risk to take, but IMO there's a lot to consider before making it.

    (I'm not suggesting getting rid of them, I'd like to make that clear, nor am I trying to start an argument, just sharing some information on the subject.)

    I still don't believe this was a suicide. I think accidental maybe but not suicide.

    If you know your breaks are bad but still drive, that's negligence. If you cut your breaks and drive, that's suicide.

    Where I live, the owner of the dogs would be looking at serious charges. IMO the dogs should have never been in the yard unsupervised if they were dangerous. It could have been a kid trying to retrieve a ball, a harmless drunk person, or someone with dementia or mental illness who didn't understand the danger.

    And what if the dogs ever get loose? What if there's a storm and the fence blows down? They could kill a kid in a heartbeat. I don't blame the dogs at all and don't think the dogs should be killed, but the owner has a big responsibility to keep people safe from the dogs. All just MOO.

    Okay, looks like the owner of the property was home. But he should have been supervising the dogs more closely *if* he knew they were dangerous, IMO. The witness who tried to help the poor woman could have been mauled as well, and that certainly wouldn't have been a suicide. All just MOO.

    I'd be interested to.see a picture of the yard. Is it possible that the dogs were in a kennel or around a corner out of sight, and Rebecca though thought that they weren't there that day?

    Also, how high was the fence?

    The landlord would also be liable as he is the one carrying homeowners insurance. He happens to be a law enforcement officer who declared bankruptcy a few years ago. He will be in deep doo if they sue. The dog owner already has a lawyer, the one who saved the puppy at the 11th hour.

    fenced-area.jpg See any reason to "cut through?" Likely she just stopped to pet the dogs. They were not trained attack dogs says the owner and news.
