Out of con­trol chil­dren are more dan­ger­ous than dogs

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

Dear Shabir, (‘Let­ter writer says some dogs are dan­ger­ous’, Let­ters, April 28), I hope you un­der­stand that your let­ter has clar­i­fied noth­ing but the facts that you clearly don’t pos­sess a pet, specif­i­cally a dog. You clearly don’t un­der­stand the dif­fer­ence be­tween a dog run­ning to­wards you with no in­tent and with the in­ten­tion of at­tack­ing - this is com­monly mis­taken when peo­ple are fear­ful of dogs. If the dog wanted to at­tack you, it would have at­tacked you. If this is what you are call­ing an at­tack, I am at­tacked by chil­dren ev­ery time I go into a su­per­mar­ket - they are throw­ing tantrums, run­ning fast to­wards me (not sure if they will at­tack). Ac­cord­ing to your let­ter, chil­dren would be ideal can­di­dates to be added onto the list of banned things. And by mak­ing re­marks say­ing that we should ‘re­spect each other’s cul­ture’ is your way of call­ing for a ban on all dogs, how is that re­spect­ing other cul­tures? You are more likely to die in a bath­tub or be killed by a co­conut than by a dog. Oisin Dubai is ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous. Such nar­row mind­ed­ness to say that bull ter­ri­ers are “such dan­ger­ous dogs”. The only dan­ger­ous thing in this world is peo­ple. Peo­ple could learn a lot from dogs, the world would be such a nicer place. Shirley Dubai they have been al­lowed to mo­nop­o­lise prices for too long. UAE is a beau­ti­ful place and has a lot to of­fer tourists. Seamus Dubai
