#3 is the only one I will completely disagree. While I am still new to fatherhood I know enough that it is my responsibility to protect my child at all costs. Part of that is knowing who or what is around my child, including strange dogs. There are not too many 4 year olds out there that are not interested in everything they see and the kids guardian should have known better. Growing up my parents never let me walk up to a dog and start petting it, even today when I walk my dogs parents usually ask me first if their kid can pet my dogs.
Too many people are assuming too many unknown details in this thread.
1) We don't know whether the girl did anything to provoke the dog.
2) We don't know whether the dog has any mental problems or not.
3) We don't know whether the father had to use such force (or force of some degree) to stop the dog from doing more damage.
4) We don't know how the girl was able to go up to a strange dog without being stopped by the grandparent or carers; it may have somehow been an event the carers couldn't stop.
We don't know enough about this case to be able to place the blame on anyone.
