Just as landlords, pet owners, and animal shelters are learning to deal with the Maryland Court of Appeals’ recent ruling, which determined pit bulls (and only pit bulls) to be “inherently dangerous,” a woman at the Waverly farmer’s market on Saturday was attacked by a dog, which had been tethered to a parking meter but broke loose. The woman, who has not been identified as of 7:30 a.m. Monday morning, was taken to Union Memorial Hospital with “bites to her left arm and leg and a scrape on her face.”
I’m sure you will be shocked to learn that the dog in question is a Rottweiler, a breed we know — thanks to the Court of Appeals — is not “inherently dangerous.” I know it’s hard to understand why one of the inherently safe breeds would attack someone unprovoked, but my advice to you is to just sit tight and wait for breed experts over at the Maryland Court of Appeals to sort out this troubling and confusing paradox. I’m sure they’ll come up with an explanation that will allow us to go on discriminating against the dog we love to hate.
