It was a preventable situation

In response to this story (“3-year-old bitten in face by dog on First and Spring,” page 24, June 30 Journal):

A dog in new and unnerving surroundings tied to a bench so humans can go shopping and leave a nervous dog unattended ... a 3-year-old left unattended while her parents shop, leaving her to entertain herself. Who knows if she knows how to be around dogs?

Dog protects himself, and now his guardians don’t want him!

People are idiots! This situation was totally preventable. Now the child and the dog suffer.
