From My Google Alerts- September 30, 2010

In Roxanna, IL, a cop shot and killed a pit bull that attacked him. The officer and an animal-control specialist were dispatched to a report of a dog running loose when the pit bull jumped on the officer. The dog was shot twice, the second time at the request of the owner to avoid suffering.
The virtual dog game, Nintendogs, has led to a nine year old girl being being bitten on the lip by a real dog. When her virtual dog barked, this sent her friend’s bull-mastiff cross into a craze. The dog proceeded to bite and drag the nine year old off the couch. She was bitten several times and eventually her lip was bitten off; however, it was able to be reattached. The dog has been euthanized. The child’s grandmother thinks that Nintendogs is to blame, but II am going to disagree because I am sure thousands of other people have played the game with their dogs present and they were not attacked.
