Chihuahua or Belgian Shepherd? The size/breed of the dog would be informative. A better written article would include some pertinent content.

Destroy the dangerous dog. Arrest the owner and make him pay Millions of Yen in compensation. Life ban from owning pets.

Dogs are the responsibilty of the owner. Ensuring that one's dog is properly trained is part of that responsibility.

XL Bully cross breeds, derived from pit bulls, a particularly vicious animal, esp. when poorly trained, have been implicated in the deaths and serious injuries to many in the UK, and now have to be registered, or will be destroyed.
