Boy (8) dies after dog attack

https://m.independent.ie/irish-news/...-39067536.html

Very little information on what exactly happened. Two Rottweilers apparently. Poor little fella, not much older than my own. RIP.

An eight year old boy has tragically died after being attacked by two dogs in Dublin.

The child died this morning at Crumlin Children's Hospital.

At around 4pm yesterday, the child was seriously injured following a reported attack by a number of dogs at a house in the Tallaght area.

The child was taken to Tallaght Hospital with serious injuries before being moved to Crumlin yesterday.

The dog warden has been notified and the dogs have been confiscated.

Who said the parents of the child were to blame in any way?

The owners know this, that's why they chose that breed.
They figured owning this breed would make their home more secure from intruders.

Not in direct relation to this tragic incident(which is a bit different, 2 rottweiler guard dogs in a business yard attached to the home), but I don't get why some people want dangerous breeds of dogs. I see these people out all the time with no muzzles on the dog, some let them off the lead, and others who can barely control the dog. Do they think they're hard ********? That it's some sort of status symbol? I think the majority of these people are idiots.
