These are pictures of Lucas Arnds taken just after the attack. He had to get more than 40 stitches. "His top teeth hit my ear and then it hit this part and his bottom teeth bit into this. And I started crying. Blood was dripping down and I started banging on the door." Lucas was at his dad's house in Laveen this weekend and was in the yard playing with the 1 year-old pit bull. "I just heard my son with a very loud bloodcurdling scream yell out help 'dad help help!'" says Ted Arnds. Ted got the dog from a shelter when it was a puppy, the dog was around kids all the time. "All it took was something that you don't even think about, like the smell of another dog for that dog to reach out and grab my son and tear him to pieces." Just before the attack, Lucas was helping out a neighbor with some yard work and also played with that neighbor's pit bull. Animal control told the family the other dog's smell could have sparked the attack.

The only g--damned dog that will be sparked to attack like this because of smelling another dog is these horrendous human-created genetically engineered fighting breed dogs.

Can we ban these monsters please, and get back to having normal dogs? The kind who smell another dog and think 'hey, a chance to make a new friend!'

Sorry to sound so angry here, but I can't stand the way pit bull behavior is constantly described as dog behavior. It's nothing to do with dog behavior. The pit bull is so different from normal dogs, I don't even think we should call it 'a dog'. It's a genetically engineered product -- one that's killing real dogs by the hundreds every day, besides what it's doing to our children.

If their animal control is anything like ours down here in Pima County, look for that dog to get pushed back out the door again. Check out this list:

Note the pit bull pushers group at the top of the list.

Here in Pima County, animal control isn't part of the solution. It's part of the problem.
