If you tease a dog and it bites you should the dog be put to sleep?

To my opinion,in this case it's purely your fault and you should be the one responsible for your own actions. When it comes to people committing crimes,they get away with self-defense,so why do animals have to suffer because of our unwise choices?

Everyone is responsible for their own actions. When a dog is tormented, they will strike out. If you are stupid enough to pester a dog to the degree that it bites you, you deserve what you get. The dog can't be blamed. The dog most likely tried to warn you by growling or barking. If you are too stupid to heed that warning, no the dog shouldn't be put to sleep.

I agree with all of you people,animals usually try to warn us,not their fault we don't pay attention to these warnings

I agree. If you physically provoke an animal, you'll get what's coming to you. Just be nice to animals.

Exactly! Animals,no matter how nice,are still wild creatures with wild instincts so it's better not to provoke them

No it shouldnt be put to sleep, if a dog attacks for no reason thats different but if someone intentionally sets out to wind it up well theres only so much any human would take and thats the same with animals its going to react at some point and biting snapping is their natural response its not like they have the ability to think well il just walk away like most humans would.
