Chopper is a loveable brindle dog with a big dopey grin and a tail that won’t stop wagging. Two weeks ago, he would have crushed your hand without a thought if you went to pat him. Chopper is a Pit Bull Terrier, the same breed of dog that mauled 76-year-old Toowoomba woman Barbara Stringer to death on December 27 last year. But to look at chopper, who has undergone 2 weeks of intensive training and is now everyone’s best friend, you wonder how much of the talk of banning the breed is a knee-jerk reaction? After Mrs.Stringers horrific death, local councils and state governments began an intense campaign to solve the dangerous dog problems in our cities. If local councils have their way, dogs like Chopper will become an extinct breed, the Do Do of the dog world.
Are Pit Bulls that much more dangerous
