The death last Sunday of Galway woman Teresa McDonagh (pictured) following an attack by two mastiffs was horrific but, sadly, not surprising.

It seems barely week goes by in the States and Britain without someone being mauled to death - so it was only a question of time before something like that happened here.

This has led to renewed calls for more dogs to be placed on the dangerous dogs list, and has, of course, brought out the anti-dog fraternity to once more do battle with dog lovers.
