Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier type attacks child, lets include articles and pictures of Rottweilers!

A dog described as an Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross attacked a four year old child in Somerford Christchurch less than a week after the tragic events in Leicester  Thankfully the child is okay but has extensive injuries, what line does the local press take, it prints a three page spread with three seperate pictures of Rottweilers and an article entitled ‘just how safe or suitable are Rottweilers as pets?  The article then has three Rottweiler owners giving their opinions of the breed.

There is also a double page photograph of a Rottweiler owner and his dog with two puppies, why is this picture in the three page spread?  What connection is there between Rottweilers and this unfortunate incident? 

Is it right for the press to use Rottweilers as a ‘sacred cow’ to be trundled out whenever there is a dog attack even when the dog in question is not a Rottweiler?
