To me, this ruling no longer allows for the "one free bite". There should be no free bite for any type of dog, especially when it involves serious injury/death. A DNA can be done to determine the breed of dog. So for all the "responsible" pit owners getting their panties in a bunch over this, this shouldn't apply to you should it? Or is it because you wouldn't be able to call an attack a "unfortunate incident". You say bad owners should be held responsible so here ya go. This is holding them financially responsible for the behavior of their dog.
