Some people would jump in and risk their lives; others wouldn't particularly since it might not have helped the child. But let's consider another problem.
Shooting and killing an African wild dog after the 2-year-old was clearly already dead, just because the dog was "not responding," is unethical. Why didn't they use a tranquilizer? It's an endangered species, and nobody was in danger. What did the dog do wrong?
Let me guess: once police arrived, they dictated how to deal with the scene, and their playbook says shoot all non-cooperative animals.
Imagine a pathologically idealistic, anti-religious, culturally-relativistic, iconoclastic, socially-irreverent, sociologically-progressive signature line here. Or don't.
