Civility Goes to The Dogs

http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013...s_fiorito.html

Anybody else see this? I read it in the paper but the on-line version is getting a lot of comments and reaction seems pretty mixed.

hmmm... well I think just to start they both were at fault for having dogs off leash when they shouldn't - I love dogs, but it bothers me when people take their dogs out without a leash, no matter how well behaved they are things happen!

As for the rest, I don't know, it seems much of "he said, she said" kind of story, but I do think he shouldn't have hit the dog, I am sure he could have given a loud no and the dog would have moved. I also hope he didn't really punched that lady

The comments it's getting are rather polarized. This morning a new person has popped up saying the man didn't hit the dog at all and that the woman hit the man first. The whole thing is hearsay, and a poor excuse for a column.
