EAST BARNET ENGLAND - A STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER CRUNCHED ON A PRESCIOUS CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIEL "RUBY" KILLING HER - 2ND KILL FOR THE STAFFIE - THE NUT JOB OWNER SAYS "MY DOG IS NOT VICIOUS BUT "I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH HIM"

Ruby was fatally attacked by a Staffordshire bull terrier in Oak Hill Park
Esther Shortt was walking her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 'RUBY' when a  STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER BIT INTO IT, INFLICTING FATAL INJURIES.  She regularly walked Ruby and her other dog in the park and would wait in the car until Dale had passed with his larger dog.

THIS REPORTER GIVES MORE SPACE TO THE NUTTER THAN THE POOR FAMILY OF THE VICTIM  --- AS USUAL ---I HOPE TO SEE ANOTHER STORY WHERE THE VICTIM'S FAMILY GETS A WORD IN EDGEWISE - BUT WHAT A NUT JOB  THIS NUTTER  IS !!!!!!

PIT NUTTER SPEAK:

*  THIS MAKES ME FEEL SICK JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

*  HE'S NOT VICIOUS.

*  I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH HIM.

*  IF HE CONSTANTLY WENT AFTER OTHER DOGS THEN FINE, BUT HE DOESN'T.

*  HE JUST PICKED IT UP IN HIS MOUTH, HE DIDN'T' REALLY ATTACK IT.

* HE CHASES SQUIRRELS AND RATS AND I THINK HE MUST HAVE THOUGHT SHE WAS A SQUIRREL.

* WE'VE HAD HIM FOR 4 YEARS AND HE'S LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER.

* I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO AND MY GIRLFRIEND IS DEVASTATED.

* IT WASN'T LIKE HE RIPPED HER TO PIECES, HE PICKED IT UP IN ITS MOUTH BUT HE'S OBVIOUSLY SO STRONG -- IT WASN'T A VICIOUS ATTACK.

*  IT IS UNFORTUNATE BUT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

* THERE'S A STEREOTYPE  WITH THESE DOGS -- I GET LOOKS ALL THE TIME

* IF HE'S LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE, I WILL KEEP HIM ON A LEAD IN THE FUTURE AND HE WILL CERTAINLY BE MUZZLED.

 * I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY AS HE'S MY DIG BUT HE REALLY ISN'T A VICIOUS ANIMAL.

SANTA MARIA CA - LETTER TO THE EDITOR/OPINION - SANTA MARIA TIMES - HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE AND VICIOUS DOGS

It is my understanding all insurance companies have a  VICIOUS DOG LIST.   Prior to buying a dog, it would be to your readers advantage to find out what breeds are on the list.

If you should buy a dog on that list and that dog should maim or kill a person or pet, your homeowner's or renter's policy  WILL NOT COVER YOU.

Due to the increase in vicious dog attacks, some counties are now requiring landlords, who rent to people owning  PIT BULLS, etc, to buy a special insurance policy to cover these breeds prior to renting.

***************************************************************************

I HAVE NOTICED THAT RECENT PHOTOGRAPHS OF DOGS IN NEWSPAPERS AND ON TV WHO NEED A HOME ARE OFTEN CALLED LAB MIXES, INSTEAD OF PIT BULLS.  THIS IS MORE THAN DECEITFUL, IT COULD WELL BE CRIMINAL -- IF THE PERSON KNOWINGLY LIED IN THE AD AND THE DOG LATER CAUSED BODILY HARM OR DEATH.

***************************************************************************

RECENTLY, SOME COUNTY SHELTERS AND HUMANE SOCIETIES HAVE BEEN SUED FOR SUCH DECEPTIONS.  THE HIGHEST SETTLEMENT SO FAR IS $7 MILLION.

OKLAHOMA CITY OK - CECIL ELLIOT WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL 2 YEARS AGO AND HE WANTS LAWS CHANGED AFTER THE DEATH OF NELLIE DAVIS BY HER GRANDDAUGHTER'S PIT BULL TO MAKE SURE THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN

CECIL ELLIOT WAS ATTACKED BY A   PIT BULL  2 years ago and has come forward to share his story after hearing of the  PIT BULL MAULING  DEATH OF NELLIE DAVIS.  He hopes his story helps change state law. He wants to make sure it never happens again!!!

Elliot was walking through his neighborhood  when he was attacked.  Nellie Davis' death has brought back memories of his experience. He says the Pit Bull hit him like a "FOOTBALL TACKLE" KNOCKING HIM DOWN AND THE PIT'S FANGS RIPPED TISSUE AND LEFT LIFE -LONG SCARS  AND EXPERIENCING A PIT BULL ATTACK FIRST HAND CHANGES YOU FOREVER.   He thinks Pit Bull owners should have a special license to own one and he believes there should be tougher punishments for people who let their Pit Bulls run loose.

" I THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO OWN A PIT BULL DOG.  I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON'T,  BUT THE DOG HAS A PROPENSITY TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE BY NATURE."

*************************************************************************

ENTERS THE PIT NUTTER (MALE RESCUE ANGEL??) WITH HIS USUAL PIT NUTTER SPEAK !!!!!!

PHILADELPHIA PA - WOMAN USES CHANGE.ORG TO PETITION FOR SAFER PARKS AFTER ATTACKS ON 2 SMALL PETS

Ringo, after surgery from dog attack
RINGO AFTER  SURGERY

BY:  SUSAN TEEARS

A pet Yorkie was attacked and killed this past weekend by a loose PIT BULL at the american Legion Playground located on Torresdale Avenue.  My dog and I were attacked 3 years ago by an unleashed dog and suffered many injuries.  The only sign that is currently posted is the law for a fine for failure to clean up after your dog.

This american Legion Playground, as well as many others, is not a dog park.  As it is the Parks goal to provide a safe clean and ready to use facility with various activities and programs for all ages, this is a potential recipe for disaster, should it involve a child.

This is currently not a facility that I feel comfortable exposing my pet to, let alone children.  I have written to the Parks and Recreation Leader and the Assistant with no response.  As a concerned citizen of Philadelphia and a resident of Tacony, I wonder what can be done to ensure that these local playgrounds are enforcing the law?

Please help me to get Michawl DiBerardinis, Commissioner of Parks and Recreation actively involved in helping us to have this law enforced and protect our pets and children from such attacks.

Thank you for your support!

Christine Salb said she was walking down the ramp of her home on the 36000 block of Dover Street when the neighbor's Pit Bull from across the street ran toward her house.  She picked up her dog and started walking toward the stairs, but the Pit got to her and grabbed her arm....then grabbed her dog...then grabbed her arm again and then just killed her little dog. She needed stitches on her right arm.

The Kent County SPCA which also handles dog-related incidents in Sussex county, said the dog has had no previous incidents in its records.  However, Salb and her neighbor Mary Ann Mancini say there have been several incidences.  The incident is still under investigation.

ENTERS ANOTHER CLUELESS PIT NUTTER......

* It just seems to be that one woman (Salb) who he barks at.  I don't understand.

* I'm just a total wreck  thinking about her being without her dog and I'm just so sorry.

CANANDAIGUA NY - THERE ARE HEROS AMONG US !!!! DAVID BLISS - SCHOOL BUS DRIVER - SAW A WOMAN, A BABY AND A DOG BEING ATTACKED BY 2 VICIOUS PIT BULLS - AND HE RUSHED TO THEIR AID



"I AM A DOG LOVER.  I HAVE 2 OF MY OWN.  THESE PIT BULLS HAVE NO PLACE IN THIS WORLD, BEING VICIOUS LIKE THEY ARE BECAUSE THEY SERVE NO PURPOSE."

THEY BIT THROUGH HIS HAND



VIDEO:  THEY WERE DRAGGING THEIR OWNER

David Bliss was at the end of his last bus run when he saw a woman, a baby, and a dog being attacked by 2 PIT BULLS.  He pulled his bus up and jumped out landing on the dogs and started beating on them and trying to pull them apart.



"THE PIT BULLS WERE BEYOND MEAN!  TOTALLY VICIOUS AND TO SEE THAT KIND OF RAW ANGER IN A DOG IS QUITE AMAZING."





He says he does not know why they let go but they did.....but not before they turned on him.  He has puncture wounds back and front and stitches back and front.

The next day he was back at work and he just had to check on Cynthia Devaney and her dog, Jordan.

She says the Pit Bull attack was a total shock. "IT WAS AWFUL...REALLY SCARY. NOTHING LIKE I'VE EVER GONE THROUGH IN MY LIFE."  She also says that David Bliss was amazing and she is so thankful he came along.  SO VERY THANKFUL !!!.

She was treated for her bites and her grandson is fine and Jordan survived.

David Bliss says the Pit Bulls had Jordan by each side of the neck and they were just tearing.  He still marvels at the "PURE VICIOUSNESS OF THE ATTACKS."

"THESE DOGS DON'T HAVE A PLACE IN THIS WORLD, BEING LIKE THEY ARE BECAUSE THEY SERVE NO PURPOSE.  IT ENDED A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD.  BECAUSE WHEN YOU JUMP INTO SOMETHING LIKE THAT, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, AND YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT IT.  YOU JUST DO IT."

His father was waiting in the car and at first didn't realize his son was bitten until he turned around and he saw blood coming down his face.  The child had to have 7 stitches in his cheek, he had a bloody nose and several scratches.

NOW HIS FATHER IS VERY UPSET BECAUSE ANIMAL CONTROL DID NOT SEIZE THE DOG FROM THE HOME BECAUSE THERE IS NO RECORD OF THE DOG ATTACKING ANYONE BEFORE AND THIS BITE HAPPENED ON THE DOG'S PROPERTY SO IT IS CONSIDERED.....

CEDAR RAPIDS IA - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A MAN WALKING HIS DOG - SEVERE BITE TO ARM !

Roger Johnson, 57, was walking his dog around 8 am Saturday morning when he was attacked by a loose PIT BULL.  Johnson says he usually avoids the intersection of Ellis Blvd NW and Penn Avenue NW because he knows a house in the area has more than one PIT BULL and the dogs are often not on a leash.

The Pit Bull chased him to a nearby abandoned house and a neighbor came to his aid and knocked the dog off with a 2x4 plank.  The Pit Bull was lunging at him and he was bitten on his arm.

Officers arrived shortly after the attack and drove Johnson to St. Luke's Hospital for his injuries.  Doctors told him that if the bite to his right bicep was any deeper, he would have lost his arm.

FAIRBURN GA - ARE COYOTES EVOLVING INTO A NATURAL PREDATOR OF PIT BULLS ???



Residents in Fairburn are worried about coyotes attacking their pets.  Lewis Dunn snapped a photograph of 2 coyotes near his backyard that have mauled - ONE PIT BULL AND KILLED ANOTHER.

Experts say it's extremely unusual for a coyote to attack something as potentially vicious as a Pit Bull.   But there are a couple of other unusual things about the coyotes seen in the photo.  First, there are 2 of them.  coyotes are not usually seen together, wildlife experts say.  Second, the sun is shining.  Coyotes are rarely seen in the daytime.

Lewis Dunn says that if you see animals out like that, they might have distemper or parvo or early stages of rabies.  Officials believe that coyotes are feeding on pets and wildlife on the edge of the population and living in a vast area of woodlands in south Fulton County.

A decision was made last week  not to issue Mira and Aaron Sarlija  dangerous dog licenses for their two - 7-year-old Staffordshire/German Shepherd Crosses.

These dogs were linked to the deaths of 4 animals - 3 cats and a dog in a 3 month period. - All killed in their own back yards.  It is likely they were involved in many other attacks in the Fisher area. Domestic Animal Services deemed the pair dangerous dogs and refused to grant licences to keep them.  The Sarlijas fought the decision in the tribunal, arguing they would take steps to secure their yard so the dogs could not escape.

In September a follow-up inspection found the dog owners had taken steps to dog-proof the yard, but MORE WORK NEEDED TO BE DONE.  In the tribunal hearings the Sarlija's painted a picture of the strong bond between them and the dogs.  The tribunal wrote back, "THIS IS NOT A TEST OF HOW MUCH THE DOGS ARE LOVED."

**************************************************************************

AFTER MIRA SARLIJA LAUNCHED INTO AN ABUSIVE TIRADE, THREATENING TO BURN DOWN THE HOUSES AND SMASH THE CARS OF THE PEOPLE WHO COMPLAINED, SHE WAS TOLD THAT HER OUTBURST WAS UNACCEPTABLE AND....

"SERVED ONLY TO UNDERLINE AND CONFIRM THE TRIBUNAL'S ASSESSMENT OF HER RELIABILITY."

NORWOOD OH - A VICIOUS DOG IS ROAMING TRI-STATE STREETS ATTACKING OTHER PETS BEING WALKED BY THEIR OWNERS

(WKRC-TV)
Described as a Pit Bull or a Boxer Mix with a brown, brindle coat and wearing a metal choke chain with tags,  this loose dog  attacked Bevin Kenney as she was walking her Springer Spaniel puppy, Murphy, Wednesday night.  It dragged Murphy around and down a hill near Norwood View Elementary School.  She screamed and fought for her pet and at one point the dog tried to attack her.  She managed to walk Murphy back to her front door and the attacking dog followed her.

Norwood Police said Thursday they'd had several complaints over the last few months about a dog with similar description charging people and trying to attack dogs.  Bart Stonebraker said his 10-year-old Bishon Frise, Butch, was attacked and killed by a dog similar to this in February. Butch was attacked in his own yard and Stonebraker was bitten.

They all hope the attacking dog will be caught before it attacks again.
