Seems that Down Under, a two-year-old was mauled by the family dog. And the mom, Alicia Cottier, did the logical thing.
She blamed it on the two-year-old.
And said "she was keeping the dog despite the attack because it had been provoked by her son pulling the dog's ears."
Well of course...Noah, the two-year-old boy, should know that if he pulled the dog's ear he would get mauled until "Noah was covered in blood and crying hysterically when Ms Cottier pulled him away from the dog and dialed triple-0."
