I agree, BSL is failing, and because of recent incidents, including cases where children have been injured or killed, the UK public is divided, many want to see more breeds added to the banned list. The main focus should be on education and responsible ownership. Focus on the deed not the breed.

this is why it is the RESPONSIBILITY of pet owners to have dog insurance to cover this kind of nonsense.

Leanee,

I don't know how it works in the UK, but in the US, home owners insurance does cover any type of liability....including dog bites. I am much more interested in the responsibility dog owners must have to PREVENT this type of attack....which is why laws/enforcement should focus on owner responsibility instead of the breed of dog involved -- which is a big part of why the DDA in the UK is failing.
