I agree, it usualy is an adult's fault. Unless the animal is specialy trained, it should not be left around children alone. In the paper, there was a story about a kid who was rollerblading with her club, and her friend had a Rottweiler along. The Rottweiler decided to attack her, and her brother had to kick it off! It also said, the dog was a male, and he hadn't been neutered. The dog was with a child who wasn't even strong enough to hold the dog back. I'm not sure what goes through these parent's heads. All the blame goes to the poor dogs who did it.
