The dog who mauled the French woman's face was a Lab.
About a year ago, when a "pit bull" puppy supposedly chewed a baby's toes, there was a huge outcry. Then apparently the ferret did it. Then there was some question about the parents.
Recently, a neglectful father allowed a dachschund to maul his baby. Where's the outcry about this? Oooh, nooo, the media decided that the smell of urine in the baby's diaper attracted the dog. Presentation was totally different for the dachschund mauling than for the supposed "pit bull" mauling (which probably wasn't the dog at all).
