Default Big Dog Maulings

I don't know how much it is happening around the area where you guy's are living but over the past two or three year's I've seen the amount of people and dog's attacked and killed by bigger dog's go up dramatically. Having it happen to myself and having to watch my baby die in my arm's it's something that really upset's me and makes me sit up and take notice. Just recently I believe a Doberman attacked a 5 year old boy in my county, when the paramedics arrived he was pronounced dead. Even our animal control is having a tough time as a pit-bull tore an officers tire to shreds when he pulled up to the house to get the dog. It's been getting pretty nasty some vet decided it was a good idea to dump animal bodies, about 150 of them off the side of the highway.

But what got the most attention in our area is the mauling of a elderly lady who only wanted to protect her dog. It's said her body was found on top of that of her small dog and for the effort of trying to save her dogs life she lost her own.

Last December, four blocks away, a pit bull attacked a 7 year old girl.
Her 9 year old sis and Dad were all on a sled.

She had to have two big wounds stitched up on her shoulder. She has nightmares alot, and both girls are in counseling.

The dogs owner's live next door, and brought over food and said they were
sorry. This did not cut it. Problem is that they let the dog out of the yard every time it need to go to the bathroom.

The Mother has a lawyer, and does not want to sue the dog's owners, but wants the dog put down before it kills someone.

They are in the process of moving, as the girls won't play outside now.
Sad!

And, today I have Sadie outside on a very long lead, unhooked, as she follows me everywhere. I just don't know her well enough to trust her, so if she took off, I would have an easy time catching her.

I live on a dead end street, and the few dogs in my area are fenced, or leashed.

Just yesterday my neighbors got a baby pitbull. They are moving in a month, so I am not too worried. Anyway, that dog, which is big for a pup, came right over and I turned around and he was sniffing out Sadie. I was scared.
The owner came right over.

This is like having a baby.

Those stories are heartbreaking.
I remember the case of Diane Whipple. The owners bragged about how vicious their dogs were and laughed about the fact that she was afraid of them. Some people are really messed up.

One of the students in my school was attacked by his grandfathers pitbull.. I had to get at least 1200 stitches in his face and he lost his eye.. He is only 7 years old..

That about the lady is so sweet I'm sure i would say i could do that but i think i would be too terrified if i had to. when i was 6 a man who used to live on our street sicked his dog on our bigger dog rusty. my dog just took it he was too sweet to even fight back. thankfully he was ok just a few cuts.

Default Pit bulls

I was watching the news last night and I believe it happened here in California, but only listened to, did not stop and watch it, but a 12 year old boy was attacked and killed by a pit bull yesterday. I am terrified of those animals and will cross the street rather than walk past the one in the yard across the street.

Oh oh oh oh that is just plain awful!!!

Our county has a leash-law, a pretty strict one - but in the next county over there is NO leash law.

I write for the newspaper and we get people calling in complaints about Carter county's lack of leash law. They say dogs just roam the treets and can attack pets or other people, etc.

When these people call the police in Carter County...the police have no jurisdiction unless a human being is hurt in the process so when people complain about their dog being attacked by a neighbor's free-roaming mongrel...the cops tell the person to get in their car and run over the dog b/c that could be filed as an "accident."

Can you believe that the police say that instead of just the city working to put down a leash law? Gosh. I'm so glad I live in Washington county instead of Carter, for many reasons, but especially for that.

How horrible her last min of life must have been. Did the dog end up surviving the ordeal?

I read that a while ago but sadly I think the dog died too and they were buried together.

I work in the inner city and have to walk about a block and a half to the school i tech at.. There is a pitbull that lives in one of the houses and its always loose.. Everytime I walk by I pray that it will stay calm... I have seen its owner and she said its a friendly dog but i wont take a chance.. Also, in the apartment next to mine, my neighbor has a pitbull-lab mix.. it looks just like a pitbul but its really friendly.. She loves Mocha but i wont let Mocha get too close

In UK we have the DDA which has banned pitbull type dogs for over 10 years now. It was a wicked piece of legislation that saw many happy gentle family pets put to death. The dogs are not the problem it is the owners who are to blame.

All of the breed banning that goes on is making me sick. I didn't realize how widespread it is. City councils and County Boards or whomever is making these laws need to step up and address the problem at source -- which seems to be questionable owners and home situations.

I couldn't agree more. The pitbull that attacked my dog (not a yorkie other one) had to be put to sleep. I would have been more satisfied to see the owner get put to sleep. I don't think its right to completley ban pitbulls a person my dad works with rescued a pitbull named rosie from an abusive situation. He is the sweetest little dog ever. I think its sickning how people don't care if their neighbors lives or their pets lives are in danger.

What about pit bulls that are raised in a loving family environment and turns on somebody? Or a Rottie...my in-laws next door neighbors raised them for years and her 6 year old daughter walks in the back yard with an ice cream cone and the dog latches on to her HEAD and starts slinging her around like a rag doll. From my in-laws that saw it and her parents, she was not teasing the dog. She had just walked out side.

IMO...I think that some breeds are more likely that others to just turn on you. If a dog was bred for centuries to be a fighting dog and people now days have domesticated them to be a family pet, well, they still have that instinct. You guys are right. A lot of times it is the owners that are to blame for a dog's vicious behavior but that isn't always the case.

Another story, a co-worker breeds and raises Pits. Her son and I were talking one day. He tells me that his babies would NEVER bite him. They were sweet, raised with family...etc. A couple of days later, he comes to school with his hand bandaged. His "BABY" had bit him.
