KANSAS CITY KS - NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS PRECEDED CHARGES IN FEDERAL DOGFIGHTING CASE - ONE VICTIM TELLS HER STORY OF HOW HER PETS WERE MAULED BY ONE OF THE FIGHTING DOGS



FOR YEARS THE WAILS AND CRIES OF DOGS TROUBLED RESIDENTS OF ONE KANSAS CITY NORTH NEIGHBORHOOD.  THE NOISES CAME FROM INSIDE A GARAGE AND FROM BEHIND THAT HOME'S PRIVACY FENCE ON AN  "OTHERWISE QUIET CUL-DE-SAC".  NUMEROUS CALLS TO THE CITY ABOUT THE HOME REPORTED SUSPICIONS OF ANIMAL ABUSE AND NEGLECT.

NEIGHBORS SAID THEY SOMETIMES GLIMPSED DOGS INSIDE THE GARAGE HANGING BY THEIR NECKS.  BECAUSE THEY WERE PIT BULLS NEIGHBORS SUSPECTED THAT THE DOGS WERE BEING USED FOR DOGFIGHTING.

THE MAN WHO KEPT DOGS AT THE HOUSE IN THE 8100 BLOCK OF NORTHWEST 81ST PLACE WAS ONE OF 2 MEN ACCUSED IN FEDERAL COURT OF PARTICIPATING IN A LARGE-SCALE DOGFIGHTING OPERATION.  PETE DAVIS JR. WHO WAS ARRESTED LAST WEEKEND AT A TEXAS DOGFIGHT, HAS BEEN PROSECUTED SEVERAL TIMES IN KANSAS CITY FOR VIOLATING CITY ANIMAL ORDINANCES.

IN ONE 2011 INCIDENT, ONE OF HIS PIT BULLS RAN LOOSE AND ATTACKED 2 SMALL DOGS BEING WALKED BY BRANDI OUDE ALINK AND HER 7-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER.

"I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW TRAUMATIC IT WAS," SAYS BRANDI OUDE ALINK, WHOSE MINIATURE PINCHER PUPPIES, PIXIE AND PEANUT , SURVIVED.  "IT WAS HORRIBLE THE WAY MY DOGS SCREAMED AND CRIED."  SHE FOUGHT THE PIT BULL TO PULL HER PUPPIES AWAY AND NEIGHBORS HELPED SUBDUE THE FEMALE PIT BULL..  SHE WRAPPED HER INJURED DOGS IN TOWELS AND TOOK THEM TO AN EMERGENCY VET. SHE WAS SO SHAKEN SHE COULD NOT FILL OUT FORMS OR DIAL THE TELEPHONE.

DAVIS WAS FINED $400 AFTER PLEADING GUILTY TO A CHARGE RELATED TO THAT ATTACK.  AND AFTER BEING SUED OVER THE INCIDENT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, HE ALSO WAS ORDERED TO PAY $800 TO COVER THE VET BILLS.

FEDERAL PROSECUTORS IN KANSAS ANNOUNCED ON MONDAY THAT THEY HAD CHARGED DAVIS, 38, AND MELVIN L. ROBINSON, 41, WITH TRANSPORTING DOGS IN INTERSTATE COMMERCE FOR THE PURPOSE OF ANIMAL FIGHTING.  THE CHARGES CARRY A MAXIMUM PENALTY OF 5 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON.

OUDE ALINK SAYS THE PIT BULL WAS FOCUSED ON HER DOGS AND NEVER TRIED TO BITE A PERSON DURING THE ENCOUNTER:

"I WAS LUCKY.  I KNOW THAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED IN A SECOND."

SHE NEVER TALKED TO DAVIS AFTERWARD EXCEPT WHEN THEY MET WITH A MEDIATOR AFTER SHE SUED HIM.

"HE NEVER OFFERED AN APOLOGY," SHE SAID.

MY COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I CAN'T BELIEVE ANY JUDGE ORDERED THAT VICTIM TO MEET IN A ROOM WITH THAT MONSTER FOR MEDIATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BRADENTON FL- A FAMILY'S MALAMUTE/WOLF MIX BITES OFF THEIR BOY'S FINGER



FERNANDO BRIGNONI, 11, was bitten by the family's  MALAMUTE/WOLF MIX  dog about 6pm  Friday.  The dog was in a fenced backyard when the boy reached to pet it and the dog bit down on his pinky finger on his left hand.  His older brother heard him screaming and ran and hit the dog over the head so it would let go.  The dog had swallowed the finger, and possibly broke the child's lower arm,  and was running around the yard.

The boy's dad felt he had no choice.  He says he has been a hunter for many years.  He got his gun and shot the dog and by the time officials got there, he was cutting the dog open to retrieve his son's finger.  However, because of nerve damage doctors could not reattach it.

CENTER POINT AL - THE CITY COUNCIL PASSED AN ORDINANCE OUTLAWING PIT BULLS AND ANY DOG AGGRESSIVE BY NATURE IN 2008 - CITIZENS ARE STILL BEING TERRORIZED BY THOSE BREAKING THIS LAW

Even though a city ordinance bans  PIT BULLS  and other "DANGEROUS DOGS"  inside the city limits of Center Point, Mary Margaret Hampton told city council members Thursday that her neighbor's 3 Pit Bulls entered her yard 2 times since January killing her Siamese cat and a Chihuahua puppy.  She says they tried to attack her by tearing the gate off the porch and attempted to get into her house.

On Wednesday a Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff shot a Pit Bull that lunged at him in Center Point after 3 Pits chased a woman into her house.

After Mary Margaret Hampton's cat was killed, the neighbor's dogs were quarantined and the owners were told they had a week to get rid of the animals or a citation would be issued.  Despite the warning the animals were brought back to the house.

Mayor Tom Henderson said this is happening all too often:  "WRITE THEM A CITATION RIGHT THEN.  THEY'RE ILLEGAL PERIOD!",  he said.  Other city officials agreed that a citation has to be issued to get the court process started.  Council member Linda Kennemur, chairwoman of the public safety committee said the issue would be brought up at the next community watch meeting next Tuesday at City Hall.

THE CITY COUNCIL IN 2008 PASSED WHAT IT CALLS A "DANGEROUS DOG ORDINANCE" THAT OUTLAWS THE KEEPING OF PIT BULLS AND ANY DOGS "WITH A PROPENSITY, TENDENCY OR DISPOSITION TO ATTACK UNPROVOKED" OR ANY DOG THAT IS AGGRESSIVE BY NATURE.

GEORGETOWN SC - DEPUTIES ATTEMPT TO STOP 2 PIT BULLS FROM FIGHTING - THEY EVENTUALLY HAD TO SHOOT ONE OF THEM

At about 5:30pm Wednesday County Sheriff's deputies responded to Apple Street in the Andrews community of Georgetown County concerning 2 large  PIT BULLS  fighting in the road.  On arriving deputies found  a small crowd of adults and children standing near the 2 Pits actively attacking each other.  The crowd was moved to a safe distance and the deputies attempted to separate the dogs.

Verbal commands had no effect so they tasered one of the dogs but the other dog continued its attack on the incapacitated one.  Deputies attempted  "MULTIPLE TASER STUNS TO THE DOGS HEAD"  and it still would not stop its attack.  In the interest of public safety they were left with no other option but to shoot and kill the aggressive animal to end the attack.

THE OWNER OF THE DOG THAT WAS TASERED AND WAS NOT SHOT TOLD POLICE THEY WERE WALKING THEIR PIT BULL WHEN THE SECOND PIT BULL RAN TOWARDS THEM AND BEGAN FIGHTING THEIR PIT BULL. THEY SAID THEY WERE FORCED TO RETREAT ONTO A NEARBY CAR AS THE 2 PITS BEGAN FIGHTING.  NO ONE WOULD COME FORWARD AND CLAIM OWNERSHIP OF THE DEAD PIT BULL !!!

ROSEDALE BC CANADA - NEIGHBOR'S VICIOUS PIT BULL ESCAPED ITS ENCLOSURE AND ATTACKED AN 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL - SERIOUS FACIAL INJURIES

Pint-sized Chihuahua helps save B.C. girl during pit bull attack

An 8-year-old Chilliwack girl is recovering at home after sustaining serious injuries in a  PIT BULL  attack last week.  Jenna was looking for bunnies outside her grandparent's Rosedale home last Tuesday when a neighbor's Pit Bull escaped its enclosure and took her down at the knees and then.......

               CLAMPED DOWN ON HER FACE !!!!!!!!!!

She suffered serious facial injuries requiring hundreds of stitches.  But it could have been worse if not for the actions of their little 4-year-old Chihuahua  "HONEY".   The Pit Bull's owner witnessed the attack and told her mother and grandmother that tiny Honey began barking and drew the Pit's attention away from Jenna and onto itself during the attack.  The Pit Bull released Jenna and pursued and briefly caught Honey before then turning back to the child.  This gave the owner time to get control of his Pit.

Honey's barking brought the mother and grandmother to the door and they realized the little dog's back had blood on it and then they saw the Pit's owner bringing Jenna to them.....BUT THEY WERE NOT PREPARED FOR............

THE EXTENT OF THE INJURIES FROM A PIT BULL ATTACK ON A LITTLE GIRL'S FACE.

She was rushed to Chilliwack General Hospital and was in surgery over 3 hours.  She could possible need more plastic surgery in the future.  Authorities ordered the Pit Bull to be destroyed.

MY COMMENT:  THIS IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW PIT NUTTERS THAT SEEMS APOLOGETIC THAT THEIR PIT ATTACKED A CHILD.  BUT THIS STORY SAYS THE OWNER  KNEW AND EVERYBODY KNEW HOW DANGEROUS THIS PARTICULAR PIT BULL WAS AND YET THEY KEPT IT AND IT GOT OUT ON THEIR WATCH.  THAT MONSTER  COULD HAVE KILLED THIS CHILD.  APOLOGIES MEAN NOTHING !!!!!!

MNH Dog Attack
A  PIT BULL barged through the open back door of a family's home on Cedar Avenue on Monday and clenched down on a prescious little pet dog "BISCUIT".  Barb Gaffney says her grandson, Maleik, 7, had just come home from school and told her a dog was running loose outside.  She thought it might be one of the neighbor's dogs, so she opened the door to look outside and this  PIT BULL  came running into the house and went straight for Biscuit and had her by the throat and would not let go.  She grabbed a broom and hit it so hard the handle broke.

Her adult daughter then came into the room and attempted the pry the pit off with her hands.  Then a cousin, Tre Gaffney, 19, came in and punched the Pit Bull's nose and it freed little Biscuit !!!  She has multiple head and neck wounds, but she will live.

HUNT COUNTY TX - STEPHANIE MITCHELL RECOUNTS THE HORRIFYING ORDEAL OF GETTING TAG-TEAMED BY 2 VICIOUS DOGS WHILE ON HER JOB

Stephanie Mitchell of Crandall is a process server and writer. In this article she tells about being attacked by 2 VICIOUS DOGS.  While on her job in Hunt County, she was standing in a driveway talking to a woman who had her 2 dogs in the driveway near Mitchell..................

" 'DON'T WORRY, THEY WON'T BITE,'  THE WOMAN SAID....AS ONE OF HER DOGS BIT ME ON MY LEFT ANKLE.  'DID HE JUST BITE YOU?'  AS I WAS SAYING, YES, THE OTHER DOG BIT ME ON MY LEFT CALF.  AS WE TRIED TO PULL THE 2ND DOG OFF, THE 1ST DOG BIT ME THE THIRD TIME HIGHER UP ON MY RIGHT CALF.  WHEN I TURNED TO FIGHT THAT ONE OFF, THE OTHER BIT ME AGAIN FURTHER UP ON THE RIGHT THIGH!!!  EACH BITE WAS HIGHER AND MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN THE LAST.....AND THEY WERE JUST GETTING STARTED!!!"

Mitchell tells about how she reached for her concealed hand gun, but hesitated because she did not want to shoot the lady's dogs while she was trying to get them off her. Now she says she is sorry for making that decision. She kept trying to fight the dogs off with her clipboard and says she could have fought off one dog, but the way they were attacking her, she could not fight off both of them.  All 4 bites were from behind, while the other would attack face on.  Each bite got higher up and more aggressive than the last. She managed to get to her car by holding one back....then the MONSTERS.....

ATTACKED HER CAR.  THEY THREW THEMSELVES AT THE CAR WITH LOUD, SICKENING THUDS.  THEY LEFT 2 PUNCTURE HOLES IN A TIRE THAT WAS FLAT BEFORE SHE GOT AWAY!!!

She drove to the nearest official looking building she could find and walked in shaking, crying, and bleeding.  An ambulance came and 2 medics said:  "PLEASE TELL US THAT YOU SHOT THOSE DOGS."  WHEN SHE TOLD THEM NO SHE DIDN'T, THEY SAID, "YOU SHOULD HAVE SHOT THEM." She has discovered that she was attacked in an area with no animal control.  The dogs had been strays and had been taken in and fed by the woman's family.  They had never been taken to a vet or given shots. Furthermore, there is no way to remove the animals and they are still there with their owners.  Read the rest of her story here.....

PEORIA IL - A LOOSE PIT BULL CHARGED AFTER JACKIE PETTY, 70, WALKING HER BELOVED YORKIE ON A LEASH - "LITTLE BEAR" WAS KILLED

24little_bear.JPG

Jackie Petty, 70,  hopes to urge the Peoria City Council to consider passing ordinances targeting Pit Bulls  She describes the  PIT BULL  attack on her and the killing of her beloved 6-year-old Yorkie, LITTLE BEAR, as traumatic. She and her husband Gene live on North Molleck Drive near her daughter, Brooke Sommerville, wife of former Bradley University basketball star Marcellus Sommerville.  Brooke and Marcellus have 3 children and spend 9 months of the year in France where he plays pro ball. In 2006 Marcellus bought his wife Brooke a Yorkshire Terrier for Christmas and named it LITTLE BEAR.  For several years Little Bear made the trip to France with the family.  But the last year was too hard on him, so they left him with Jackie.  Jackie and Gene like the little dog's company and Jackie took him walking 3 times a day.  "He was just a cute little round ball and everybody loved him around the neighborhood.

At 9:45pm March 12, Jackie took Little Bear for his last walk of the day.  They were on their way back when she heard dogs barking at them.  She turned to see a large PIT BULL  and a CHIHUAHUA  running at them. When the Pit Bull came upon her, Little Bear tried to save her and began barking and jumping at the attacker, but the Pit Bull bit down on him hard with him still on his leash and began thrashing him back and forth.  Jackie ran screaming toward her home calling for her husband......

BUT SHE COULDN'T OUTRUN THE PIT BULL!!!  THEN SHE HEARD A MAN CALL THE PIT BULL AND THE OTHER SMALL DOG AND THEY TURNED AND RAN BACK HOME TO THEIR OWNER. HER HUSBAND THEN CAME OUT AND LOOKED  FOR LITTLE BEAR'S BODY AND FOUND IT DROPPED IN A YARD IT'S LITTLE NECK BROKEN.  HE THEN WENT TO THE OWNER'S HOUSE AND KNOCKED ON THE DOOR AND ASK IF THOSE WERE HIS DOGS AND THE MAN MUMBLED AND CLOSED THE DOOR ON HIM.  THE POLICE WERE CALLED AND THE OWNER WAS CITED WITH COUNTY VIOLATIONS AND WAS FACING HAVING THE PIT BULL DECLARED DANGEROUS.  THE OWNER SAID HE DID NOT  WANT TO KEEP HAVING TROUBLE SO HE TURNED THE DOG OVER AND IT WAS EUTHANIZED.

BUT THE PIT NUTTER SAYS HE'S HAD HIS 1 1/2 YEAR OLD "WHISKEY" SINCE RIGHT AFTER IT WAS BORN AND IT PLAYED WITH THE KIDS AND EVERYTHING AND GOT ALONG WITH VISITORS AND PEOPLE AT HIS HOUSE....ETC...ETC...ETC.....

THEN THE PETTYS LEARN THAT THE PIT BULL HAD A HISTORY AT ANOTHER ADDRESS AND IT HAD RUN LOOSE AND CHASED SOMEONE AND BITTEN SOMEONE ELSE, BUT NO ONE WANTED TO SIGN A COMPLAINT SO ANIMAL CONTROL COULDN'T BUILD A CASE. THEN AT THIS NEW ADDRESS SEVERAL RESIDENTS HAD CALLED ABOUT THE PIT BULL RUNNING LOOSE.  IF THEY TOO HAD SIGNED COMPLAINTS, IT WOULD HAVE STARTED BUILDING A CASE.  THE PETTYS FEEL THAT LITTLE BEAR'S DEATH COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED IF ONLY OTHERS HAD STEPPED UP AND BEEN RESPONSIBLE ------

THUS, WE HAVE ANOTHER STORY ABOUT YET ANOTHER PIT BULL GOING AFTER ANOTHER PERSON AND KILLING YET ANOTHER DOG!!!!!

Jackie and Gene Petty gathered in their backyard with friends at the grave site of Little Bear though the Sommervilles could not fly home in such short notice.  Jackie said a  prayer  and she said goodbye to Little Bear and she told him:  "I think you are in dog heaven, and I hope that someone will walk you 3 times a day, like I did."

THE 'RESPONSIBLE' PIT NUTTER IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WANT BE MUCH TROUBLE ANYMORE.  THE CHIHUAHUA NAMED RUBY HE STILL OWNED????  IT HASN'T BEEN A PROBLEM, BUT IT BARKS AND HE SAYS HE DON'T WANT IT ANYMORE.  HE'S GOING TO GIVE HER TO ANIMAL CONTROL.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER BELIEVE A WORD A PIT NUTTER SAYS.  PIT BULLS ARE EXTENSIONS OF THEIR MASCULINITY.  CHANCES ARE, IN NO TIME, THIS NUTTER WILL HAVE MORE PITS!!!!! THEY LIE AND LIE AND LIE AND LIE AND LIE !!!!!

SPRINGFIELD OH - OWNER OF SEVERAL PIT BULLS FLOWN TO HOSPITAL AFTER BEING ATTACKED WHEN HE TRIED TO BREAK UP A DOG FIGHT

Owner flown to hospital after bitten by his dog photo
Police were called to 1704 Hillside Avenue this afternoon after neighbors heard the man screaming. Reports indicate the man owns 4 or 5 dogs and was attempting to break up a fight among them when one attacked him.  He was flown to a hospital.

The dogs are believed to be  PIT BULLS  and 2 were taken away by humane society officials.  A neighbor who has done painting for the man inside the home says that he has had to ask the owner to put them away when he was there out of fear of being bitten.  No citations will be issued in the incident and the health department will make a decision on what happens with the animals which are believed to be aggressive.

REVERE MA - 2 ROTTWEILERS USED AS GUARD DOGS SEVERELY ATTACKED A 14-YEAR-OLD BOY AFTER HE WENT OVER A FENCE TO PLAY WITH THEM BECAUSE HE HAD BEEN ALLOWED TO PLAY WITH THEM MANY TIMES BEFORE


                       BRANDON MARCHETTI

PARENTS SAY THE BOY WAS SCALPED

UPDATE:  THE OTHER CHILD TELLS OF THIS HORRIFIC ATTACK

A 14-year-old boy was severely mauled by 2  ROTTWEILERS  used as guard dogs after Police say he jumped a fence at a construction site where he had played with the same 2 dogs many times before.  His father says he knew the dogs to be friendly and he knew them by name.

This incident evidently happened after the construction site was closed.  He had a 12-year-old friend with him who called 911 to get him help.

Police had a difficult time trying to get the Rottweilers off the boy  - even after shooting one it kept attacking. Firefighters finally turned a water hose on them to get them to back off.  It appears the owner of the dogs was not breaking any laws but he had the dogs put down anyway.

MY COMMENT:  ALL THE COMMENTERS TO THIS STORY ARE TAKING THE SIDE OF THE DOGS AND THEIR OWNER.  HOWEVER, THIS 14-YEAR-OLD IS NOT AN ADULT YET.  IT'S OBVIOUS TO ME THAT HE DID NOT SEE THE DANGER IN PLAYING WITH THESE DOGS WHEN HE DID.  THE OWNER  SHOULD NEVER HAVE  ALLOWED HIM TO PLAY WITH THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE. THE OWNER WAS SENDING A MIXED MESSAGE TO THE BOY.

NAP NANNY vs NANNY DOG

FROM:  grippingtruth.blogspot.co.nz/2012/12/nap-nanny-vs-nanny-dog.html (December 7, 2012)

Nearly 4 years ago a business savy woman (Leslie Gudel) developed an infant recliner designed to help "what the hell is sleep again" parents of newborns.

On Wednesday, prompted by 5 infant deaths, the nap nanny has been declared "a substantial hazard" and a regulatory authority is seeking legal advice to have this product pulled from the market.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  (CPSC) filed an administrative complaint within the agency against Gudel's company, Baby Matters L.L.C. of Berwyn, seeking a mandatory recall of its chairs and refunds for all who bought them. Commission spokesman Scott Wolfson called it "a rare and serious step," only the fourth time in 11 years it has been taken.

I bet you can see where I'm going with this.  I wonder if society in general is applauding this move, good lordy, we would assume anytime a move is made to save children, isn't that a good thing?  Whoa, back up the bus though.  I wonder how some of our star little nutters would feel if they found that their little one had just fallen asleep in a nap nanny?  Would they get on their little high horse and rant and rave about the utter lack of responsibility this woman has/had?  I wonder if they would rant and rave while the pit they owned licked the baby to death while it slept in the nap nanny.

5 infant deaths in almost 4 years is 5 too many....but how many more infants will have to die before pits are looked at in the same regard as the nap nanny?

Why are they so willing to risk it??? When they post this photo, it's cute, and awww.... What a great baby sister. The nutter that posted this, the caption is "don't worry I will take care of your baby :)"  To us it's infanticide, plain and simple. When they post it, it's an example of how great the dogs are.  When it goes bad, they stab the person they just praised in the back with, "Why the hell would you leave your child alone with a dog?"

Of all the photos I've seen, this one scares me the most.........



But I digress....back to the nap nanny and the fact it could be pulled from shelves.  I imagine the parents that lost their children to this product will have some form of closure when/if the regulatory body can make the recall happen, for those parents, I'm happy you deserve that closure.  But so do we.  It's time for social justice for victims of  pit bulls.

STURGIS MI - 2 PIT BULLS RUN LOOSE AND KILL A BELOVED POMERANIAN NAMED "HARRY"

UPDATE:  NO OWNER CAME FORWARD TO CLAIM ONE OF THE DOGS THAT ATTACKED AND KILLED THE POMERANIAN SO IT WAS EUTHANIZED.

Two loose  PIT BULLS  attacked Lena Wirth's beloved 10-pound Pomeranian, Harry, on March 8, ripping it into pieces.  The little pet was in its own yard and the entire attack was witnessed by Lena and her 14-year-old son leaving them angry and fearful.

As usual with these "ROAMING PIT BULLS THAT ATTACK"  the story takes on a life all its own with lots of  PIT BULL DRAMA !!!!!    The 2 Pit Bulls ran after the attack and an ACO looked around the neighborhood and saw them near another house.  But the owner of that house said he owned a female Mastiff ****THAT WAS IN HEAT****.  So he was asked to let his "IN-HEAT FEMALE" OUTSIDE TO DRAW IN THE KILLER MALE PIT BULLS.  Well, they caught one of them that was "NOT HUMAN AGGRESSIVE AND IT SQUATTED AND PEED IN SUBMISSION TO THEM TO PROVE HE WOULD NOT HARM A HUMAN !!!!!!!!!"  But the other ran off.....So the Pit Bull Drama continues......

Tom Miller, Director of the St. Joseph County Animal Control took up the search for the other Killer Pit Bull in the "DIRECTION THAT THE WIND BLOWS".  Reasoning that the 2 Pit Bulls may have been originally attracted to the scent of the "IN-HEAT MASTIFF"  and just decided to "STOP BY AND KILL THE LITTLE POMERANIAN FOR A LITTLE EXTRA BLOODTHIRST FUN", he daily traveled in widening circles the area until it led him across the state line into Indiana and he found the Pit they were looking for:

"I LOOKED FOR SIGNS THAT PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE DOGS.  PEOPLE WHO HAVE PIT BULLS FREQUENTLY TIE STUFF TO TREES FOR THE DOGS TO USE AS TOYS.  I FINALLY SAW THIS HOUSE TRAILER WITH A FENCE AROUND IT AND AN ELECTRICITY WIRE ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE AND.....

TIRES AND ROPES HANGING FROM TREES--THAT TOLD ME THAT THIS WAS A PIT BULL PLAYGROUND."

LENA WIRTH DID NOT REALIZE THE DANGER SHE WAS PLACING LITTLE HARRY IN WHEN SHE TIED HIM OUTSIDE SO HE COULD ENJOY BARKING AT THE GARBAGE TRUCK EVERY FRIDAY.  IT IS NOT SAFE TO LEAVE ANY PET OUTSIDE TIED UP  EVEN IN A FENCED YARD ANYMORE!!!  AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT A GRIPPING DOG CAN RUN LOOSE IN ANY NEIGHBORHOOD AND KILL AN INNOCENT PET AND NO ONE WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT BECAUSE - THE OWNER DIDN'T REALIZE THEIR DOG WOULD EVER DO THAT.  THEY USUALLY GET THE FIRST BITE FREE AND IN MOST CASES YOUR BELOVED  SHREDDED DEAD PET DON'T COUNT AT ALL!!!!

PROVIDENCE RI - A LOOSE PIT BULL ATTACKED A CHILD OUTSIDE THEIR SCHOOL

VIDEO

UPDATE:  A KINDERGARTEN STUDENT WAS BITTEN:  ANIMAL CONTROL SAYS, "WE DON'T KNOW WHAT SET THIS DOG OFF TO GO BITING.  YOU KNOW, YOU PUSH THE RIGHT BUTTONS ON A DOG AND IT WILL BITE.  WE JUST HAVEN'T HAD ANYBODY TELL US WHAT THOSE BUTTONS WERE IN THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE."

A loose  PIT BULL  bit possibly 2 or 3 students outside Roger Williams Middle School at about 7:30 am this morning.  The children were taken to the hospital and there is no word at this time on their condition.  The dog was captured and is now at Providence Animal Rescue and the owner has not been found yet.  There were no tags on the dog's collar, just a chain leash, and it is imperative they find out about the dog's rabies shots.

If the owner is found, a vicious dog hearing will be scheduled.  If the owner is not found, the dog will likely be euthanized.

BOCA RATON FL - 2 LOOSE PIT BULLS ATTACKED A WOMAN WALKING HER PET ON A LEASH

Barbara Knight was walking her friend's Lab Mix, Oliver, on Wednesday night along Garden Harbor Drive when  2 PIT BULLS  came around the corner and began attacking Oliver.  They got him around his neck and were trying to kill him and she began screaming for help.  A construction crew working in a home nearby came to her aid and hit the dogs with wooden sticks.

Oliver's has big chunks ripped out of his legs and he has gashes on his body.  The vet bills have reached $1,500.  She believes that a child or a small dog would have died in this attack.  They witnessed the dogs going back to a home a few blocks away.  But the PIT NUTTER says his dogs are not the ones that attacked:

* MY DOGS AREN'T VIOLENT.

* THE DOGS THAT ATTACKED ARE NOT MY DOGS.

* ONE OF MY DOGS IS JUST A PUPPY AND THE OTHER IS TOO OLD TO ATTACK.

* PIT BULLS JUST GET A BAD RAP.

Police say they won't get involved so they are taking matters into their own hands and plan to do all they can to get these dogs out of the neighborhood because they believe they have the potential to do this again.  The Pit Bull owner says his landlord wants him to move because of the Pit Bulls but he has not officially been evicted.

BLUE FIELD WV - AFTER AN ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL, THE CITY ATTORNEY IS AUTHORIZED TO DRAFT AN ORDINANCE TO BAN PIT BULLS

ON MARCH 6, BLUEFIELD'S ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER RANDELL THOMPSON WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED AND HOSPITALIZED FOR SEVERAL DAYS AFTER BEING BITTEN BY A PIT BULL.  BLUEFIELD ALREADY HAD AN ORDINANCE REGULATING THE OWNERSHIP OF PIT BULLS ---- HOWEVER, TOO MANY OWNERS WERE NOT COMPLYING WITH IT.

WITHIN DAYS OF THE INCIDENT THEIR BOARD OF DIRECTORS AUTHORIZED THE CITY'S ATTORNEY TO START DRAFTING AN ORDINANCE THAT WOULD......

             BAN PIT BULLS FROM THE CITY !!!

CITY ATTORNEY BRIAN COCHRAN SAYS THIS IS   *****A PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE.  IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE AS A MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT CAN DO TO HELP PROTECT OUR KIDS AND OTHER CITIZENS THROUGHOUT THE CITY, AND THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF IT. IT IS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE. *****

THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE WOULD ALLOW CURRENT OWNERS WHO ARE FOLLOWING THE EXISTING ORDINANCE TO KEEP THEIR PIT BULLS.  THEY WOULD HAVE 10 DAYS AFTER THE ORDINANCE IS ENACTED TO COMPLY WITH THE CURRENT LAW.  AFTER THAT PERIOD ENDS, NO MORE PIT BULLS WOULD BE ALLOWED INTO THE CITY.

"THERE ARE PROBABLY SOME RESPONSIBLE OWNERS OF PIT BULLS OUT THERE, BUT THERE ARE A LOT WHO AREN'T VERY RESPONSIBLE.  WE HAVE PRETTY STRINGENT LAWS IN THE BOOKS, BUT THEY DON'T SEEM TO BE WORKING VERY WELL."

FLOUR BLUFF, CORPUS CHRISTI TX - A WOMAN RIDING A MOTORCYCLE IS CONSTANTLY CHASED BY LOOSE DOGS - ONE FINALLY LATCHED ON TO HER FOOT AND BIT HER

Jill Robinson rides her motorcycle to work and back and has been taking an alternate route to avoid being chased by stray dogs on a daily basis.  She was riding down the street on this alternate route last night when she was chased and bitten by a  PIT BULL.....

IT LATCHED DOWN ON HER FOOT AND WOULD NOT LET GO !!!!!

Her husband, Michael, says she called the police about the dog bite but they told her taking an incident report over the phone was all they could do since the dog ran off after the attack.  She called animal control every morning she was chased by these dogs and they pretty much told her there was nothing they can do about it.

The Robinsons say they hope something can be done to increase public safety and decrease the number of loose dogs in the area.

Tamzyn Mackenzie was talking to a woman outside her family's business on Sunday night when the  PIT BULL THAT WOMAN WAS HOLDING ON A LEASH  suddenly lunged and attacked her.  The owner of the dog was unable to control it and Tamzyn had to kick it and push it away from her.  She was left with a deep bite and laceration to her lower leg area that ripped through her tendons and arteries.  She describes it as being very, very painful.

The owner took her Pit Bull and left the area quickly and a Snohomish County Sheriff's Deputy is still trying to track her down.  Mackenzie says that she thinks the dog should be put down before it hurts someone else.  She also feels that the owner should take responsibility for the attack and pay her medical expenses.  So far the ambulance ride and hospital treatment have cost her more than $2,000.
