Good and Bad Dogs

A human child in South Africa was assaulted and dragged along the street by a Pit bull terrier, but a Rottweiler came to rescue the child. The child was saved. There is yet no explanation for the action by the Pit bull, but the police is investigating the case.

In cases like this, it is important to note, not only that another dog saved the child, but also that the vast majority of dogs would never, ever attack a human like this. Pit bulls are notorious for being ferocious, but not every Pit bull would attack a human. No matter what, I have never heard of a dog who would attack a human without cause. It may not be a just cause, but a cause, nevertheless. It would be very interesting to hear what caused this attack. The news story starts with the attack, but what happened before?
