Scare Story: DS Nintendogs Causes Real Dog To Attack Child

by | 1st, October 2010

IN today’s Daily Mail scare story, we learn that the Nintendo DS can cause dogs go to berserk and bite your kids. Mad dogs, spoiled children and video games in one story. Oh, manna from heaven. The Mail reports on Saracen the now dead Bull Mastiff (he was put down) and Megan Walker:

A terrified schoolgirl had her top lip torn off by a dog as she played with a computer game.

Megan Walker’s family say a friend’s bull mastiff cross went berserk when it heard barking on a Nintendo DS game.

It dragged Megan, nine, off a sofa as she played the virtual pet puppy game Nintendogs.


The dog sank its teeth into her face, bit her several times and ripped off her top lip…

‘I think this game should carry some kind of warning,’ said the girl’s grandma Jean Taylor.

Horrible stuff. These video games can turn a placid dog bonkers. What says Ms Melville, who owned the dog?

Ms Melville was unavailable for comment, but it is understood that she told police that Megan may have kicked Saracen and that is why he attacked her.

So. Not the DS, then..?
