The above was reported in today’s issue of “The Nation” newspaper.

The newspaper reported that police at the scene said the elderly woman 83 years old, was attacked by a family dog, a pit bull, and she was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where she died.

The police are said to be investigating the incident and the information carried by the newspaper has not been confirmed by the deceased’s family.

Barbados does not have a Dangerous Dogs Act but like the UK, several breeds are not granted import licences to enter the island. These breeds, I believe, are the Pit Bull Terrier, the Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and Fila Braziliero.

On Pit Bulls in Barbados, I know several people who have them and have found them to be loving and excellent pets. I think it all comes down to how the dog is reared, treated and trained, as well as the breed.
