SALINAS CA - A PIT BULL CAME INTO A YARD AND BEGAN ATTACKING ANOTHER DOG - THE VICTIM DOG'S OWNER GRABBED A HAMMER!!!

A dog owner told police that a  PIT BULL  came on to his property on Friday and began attacking his dog. He said it was the third time this  PIT BULL  had entered his property and attacked his dog.  He feared his dog would be killed so.....

HE GRABBED A HAMMER AND STRUCK THE PIT BULL MULTIPLE TIMES. THE PIT BULL THEN CRAWLED TO THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY WITH GRAVE INJURIES.  

Officers shot the PIT BULL  to prevent further suffering.  Officers were unable to find the owner of the PIT BULL.

MACON GA - 2 PIT BULLS JUMPED OVER A LOCKED FENCE AND ATTACKED A PET - SO THE CITY HAS A PIT BULL PROBLEM ? - ANIMAL LOVER LEAVES ESTATE MONEY TO HUMANE SOCIETY AND ITS USED FOR FREE SPAYING OF FEMALE PITS TO SOLVE OVER POPULATION OF PITS???

A couple heard a commotion Friday morning in their neighbor's yard and discovered  2 PIT BULLS  were inside a chain link fence attacking their neighbor's dog.  The gate to the fence was locked so they called 911.

Pit_Bulls
  AN UNNEUTERED MALE ???


DID THE POLICE COME AND SHOOT THE DOGS THAT HAD INVADED THE YARD AND LEFT THE NEIGHBOR'S LABRADOR RETRIEVER/SHEPHERD MIX INJURED?  NO, THEY DIDN'T.  

We are told that the police secured the scene, and then we are shown a  LARGE PICTURE  of an animal control officer sweetly and gently lifting an ugly mutant with serpent eyes out of the fence that it had on its own legs jumped over into to attack another dog.  Then we are told this by that  AC officer........

"SOMETIMES ANIMALS THAT SHOW AGGRESSION TOWARD OTHER ANIMALS WON'T BE OVERLY AGGRESSIVE WITH HUMANS."
Pit_Bulls

AND WE READ 1 LINE ABOUT THE VICTIM - "HE'S GOING TO BE OK.  HE'S ALL SUTURED UP."

THEN THIS PIT BULL ATTACK ON ANOTHER ANIMAL TAKES A TWIST:

A woman who owned little rat terriers  and was retired from Robins Air Force Base died at age 89 and left tens of thousands of dollars of her estate to animal groups.  The board of one animal group ALL ABOUT ANIMALS AND HEART OF GEORGIA HUMANE SOCIETY  voted to give free spaying to "female" pits to reduce Macon's unwanted pet population and cut the number of euthanizations of pits in that city.

"IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU HAVE A MILLION DOLLARS.....IT'S FREEEEEEE!!!!"

I KNOW, I KNOW....I'M SO CYNICAL....I HAVE THIS VISION OF ALL THESE BACK YARD BREEDING RESPONSIBLE EDUCATED PIT NUTTERS WAITING IN  LINE FOR THIS FREE SERVICE.  THEY JUST CARE ABOUT THESE FEMALE PITS SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!  HOW ABOUT PASSING SOME LAWS AND ENFORCING THEM TO CONTROL PIT BULL ATTACKS IN YOUR CITY.

I REALLY WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE A PICTURE OF THE LAB/SHEPHERD MIX AND I'D LIKE TO KNOW HOW MANY STITCHES IT TOOK TO CLOSE ITS WOUNDS?  I'D LIKE TO HEAR FROM THE VICTIM'S OWNER ABOUT THE TOTAL VET BILL AND WHO IS GOING TO HELP THEM PAY THAT?  HOW DID THEY FEEL KNOWING THAT PIT BULLS COULD JUST JUMP OVER A LOCKED FENCE AND MAUL THEIR PET?  DO THEY HAVE CHILDREN? WHAT IF THEIR CHILDREN HAD BEEN OUTSIDE WHEN THE ATTACK TOOK PLACE? I'D LIKE TO HEAR THE VET THAT TREATED THE VICTIM DOG STATE THAT SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT PIT BULLS MAIMING AND KILLING OTHER PETS,  AND I'D LIKE TO HAVE HEARD THE AC OFFICER TELL ABOUT WHAT CONTROLS ARE GOING TO BE PUT IN PLACE TO MAKE SURE PIT BULLS CAN NOT GET LOOSE AND ATTACK ANY ANIMAL, OR ANY PERSON.........

"SOMETIMES THEY WON'T SHOW AGGRESSION TO HUMANS" AIN'T GOOD ENOUGH.

AND IN ALL MY 3000 + STORIES I HAVE POSTED ABOUT DOG ATTACKS I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN AC OFFICER LIFT AN UNDOG UP AND TOTE IT AFTER IT HAD JUST TRIED TO KILL ANOTHER DOG WITH BLOOD PROBABLY SMEARED ON ITS MOUTH -- TREATING THEM LIKE MISCHIEVOUS CHILDREN INSTEAD OF THE KILLING MACHINES THEY ARE!

MACON GA - UPDATE ON ANTHONY IVEY, 5, ATTACKED BY A LARGE PIT BULL THAT CHOMPED DOWN ON HIS HEAD - HE CHEATED DEATH ONLY BECAUSE A HERO NEIGHBOR RAN LIKE HELL TO SAVE HIM !!!!!



Anthony spent 5 weeks in a Boston hospital undergoing 3 surgeries that grafted skin from his thighs onto his exposed skull.  The  PIT BULL  tore away his scalp.  Even though one of his eyes was damaged, remarkably he did not lose any vision in that eye.

Anthony's family says that as horrific as his injuries were, his psychological scars may be worse.  Also, his brother who was with him when the dog attacked him is also suffering  emotionally.

The bad memories also haunt Eddie Deeb, the neighbor who saved Anthony's life by pulling away the growling, gray  PIT BULL  named Blue.   He says he does not remember a lot that went on that day but thinking it was 2 dogs fighting he ran, then saw the child's feet from underneath the dog.  He says it was, "DEVINE INTERVENTION".

Anthony's great grandmother worked for Charles and Theresa Gay, who owned the Pit Bull and the house where the attack occurred.  She had done housekeeping for them for years and would bring her grandchildren with her at times.  She had long been terrified of the Gay's dogs and told the children to watch television while she worked.  It is reported that while she was working in another part of the house, Charles Gay told the boys it was OK to play in the backyard even though the dogs were there.

Neighbor's say that everyone was afraid of the dogs because they had killed other animals.  The day of the attack on Anthony, his grandmother ran to his aid screaming and she fell down and was laying in the child's blood while trying to get between him and the dog......

      LAWYER AND PIT OWNER CHARLES GAY DIDN'T EVEN MOVE

"BUT MR. EDDIE JUMPED OVER THE FENCE AND PULLED THE DOG OFF ANTHONY."

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

THE CASE HAS NOT BEEN PRESENTED TO A GRAND JURY YET BECAUSE INVESTIGATORS WERE UNABLE TO TALK TO ANTHONY FOR WEEKS WHILE HE WAS IN BOSTON.  THE CASE PROBABLY WILL BE PRESENTED TO A GRAND JURY IN AUGUST.

       MEDICAID IS PAYING FOR ANTHONY'S SKIN GRAFTS.

MURRIETA CA - A PIT BULL/MASTIFF MIX ATTACKS 2 PEOPLE - THE 80-YEAR-OLD VICTIM IS IN VERY SERIOUS CONDITION



A large dog said to be a  PIT BULL/MASTIFF MIX   mauled an 80-year-old man leaving him with serious injuries and also bit another man.  Stories are somewhat conflicting and comments to these stories are providing more information.  The attack happened around 9:30am Friday  in the 39000 block of Salinas Drive in the unincorporated community of French Valley. An air-conditioning repairman was the first target of the 90-pound dog.  Then the dog went after the owner's 80-year-old father who was bit in the stomach, both arms, PUNCTURING ARTERIES, and on the back of one of his knees.

A sheriff's deputy arrived and because the dog would not let go, he opened fire shooting multiple rounds stricking the dog 2 times.  The dog did not die but ran off and was found a couple of blocks away. Animal control seized the animal and it was put down.

STONEWALL LA - CHRIS SHAW'S 1-YEAR-OLD PIT BULL HE KEPT CHAINED UP TO A TREE IN HIS BACK YARD LUNGED OUT AND CLAMPED DOWN AND GOT HIS SON'S BEST FRIEND'S ARM

(Source: Kenneth Johnson)

ELY JOHNSON, 13,  was with his best friend on Monday when they went into the back yard where his father keeps his  PIT BULL  chained to a tree. ELY got too close to the tree and the 1-year-old PIT lunged and clamped down on him.  He says he first checked his throat then realized his arm was bleeding and entire chunks were missing.  He was rushed to LSU Hospital in Shreveport where doctors used more than 300-stitches to close up the wounds.

THE PITS OWNER CHRIS SHAW  IS A MAJOR "PIECE OF WORK" NUTTER AND, OF COURSE, BLAMES THE VICTIM.

Ely's father says the Pit had lunged at his other child's face and he was able to jump away.  A neighbor says she was very afraid of the Pit and has no doubt that it would attack anyone.  The Pit has been euthanized.

LIVINGSTON COUNTY KY - JUDGE EXECUTIVE CHRIS LASHER DISCUSSES A PROPOSAL TO REGULATE CERTAIN DOG BREEDS: "SAFETY OUTRIDES EVERYTHING - MOST EVERYONE WITH SMALL CHILDREN AND ANIMALS WOULD AGREE WITH ME"

A western Kentucky county plans to discuss a proposal that would regulate certain dog breeds.  Livingston County Judge-Executive  CHRIS LASHER  told The Paducah Sun that the proposal stems from a recent dog attack.....

LASHER SAID A PIT BULL ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY AND HIS MOTHER IN MAY WHILE........!!!!!!! ON THE WAY TO A COURT HEARING FOR  PREVIOUS ATTACKS !!!

"That was the straw that broke the camel's back", Lasher said.  "Dangerous, vicious animals have always been a problem in Livingston County.  It has been a constant issue, and it has just gotten worse and worse."

He says a proposed ordinance would require owners of "restricted dogs" to register the animal and take out a $50,000 insurance policy to cover an injury it may cause.  It would also require owners to vaccinate and microchip the dogs and have them spayed or neutered. Restricted breeds include American Staffordshire terriers, bull terriers, pit bulls and Rottweilers.

Officials plan to discuss the proposal on July 12.

"SAFETY OUTRIDES EVERYTHING.  MOST EVERYONE WITH SMALL CHILDREN AND ANIMALS WOULD AGREE WITH ME.  WE GET THREE TO 10 CALLS PER WEEK ABOUT THESE DOGS CHASING PEOPLE OR LIVESTOCK OR KILLING OTHER DOGS.  THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE WILL COMPLY, THOSE WHO AREN'T ARE WHO WE ARE TARGETING WITH THE ORDINANCE."

EFFINGHAM SC - AS A FAMILY MOURNS THEIR CHILD KILLED BY A PIT BULL THIS WEEK WE READ ABOUT ANOTHER PIT BULL ATTACK IN THIS TOWN WHERE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ARE BEING RAISED TO SAVE THAT PIT BULL

Kno, a pit bull that attacked a 5-year-old Effingham County boy last summer, may be going to a shelter in New York.

A PIT BULL THAT ATTACKED  WESLEY FRYE, 5, LAST SUMMER IS BEING SENT TO A NEW YORK RESCUE CENTER TO LIVE OUT ITS LIFE.  Wesley was playing with another child inside a neighbor's home when the  PIT BULL  attacked him and severely injured his face and leg.  He spent many days in pediatric intensive care and had several surgeries.

$$$$$$Liz keller who operates Glen Wild Animal Rescue in South Kortright, NY, said Tuesday she hasn't received the $5,000 she needs to pay for Kno's food and vet bills for the rest of his life, but she is optimistic the money will be collected. $$$$$She says she's received about $500 in online donations but hasn't seen whether any money has come in through the mail. $$$$$A private donor has agreed to match any donations received on the dog's behalf, so the goal now is to raise at least $2,500 and have that amount matched.$$$$$Kno's court appointed attorney, Mickey Kicklighter,  said a hearing scheduled for 1:30 pm today before Superior Court Chief Judge William E. Woodrum, Jr. to decide Kno's fate should be a formality. $$$$$Kicklighter said funds also must be raised to pay for a crate and air fare for the dog and to repay the county for his room and board for the last year - about $2,000. $$$$$Kno will live on the Rescue's 10-acre property 160 miles northwest of New York.  He will live in a 10-bedroom house.....

                              HOWEVER

HE WILL BE SEPARATED FROM CATS BY A FENCE AND WILL NOT BE AROUND CHILDREN............................

AND I'M THINKING........WHAT ABOUT OTHER DOGS, HORSES, GOATS, SHEEP, BIRDS, AND ADULT PEOPLE ???!!!!!

AND YES, THIS ANIMAL HAD A COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEY!!!!!!!!!

LAPORTE IN - A PIT BULL CAME THROUGH AN ELECTRIC FENCE TO ATTACK JACK DEGROOTE'S BELOVED ONLY PET- A MINIATURE DONKEY AND SHE FOUGHT BACK



A VIDEO OF A MULE'S DEFEAT OVER A PIT BULL THAT WOULD NOT STOP ATTACKING IT. I LIKE TO WATCH IT EVERY NOW AND THEN!!!

Last Friday DeGroote says his female donkey was in her fenced in area when he heard her braying.  He looked out and saw a  PIT BULL  attacking her.  The little donkey fought back by kicking and at one point she chased the dog back over the electric fence that had been knocked down by the Pit Bull.

Donkey therapy helps children, adults
A PICTURE OF A DONKEY USED FOR THERAPY

The Pit Bull then disappeared and he thought that was the end of the attack so he found his shaken donkey by his driveway and was leading her back to the fenced in area ......

WHEN THE PIT BULL RETURNED AND AGAIN STARTED ATTACKING HER !!!

The donkey had wounds to both front and rear flanks and to her mouth area. A vet came and gave her a shot to help prevent infection. Ever since the attack she has retreated to a shed and hasn't come out since. Neighbors say they do not know who the PIT BULL belongs to. It is still at large !!!!????

MY COMMENT:  JACK DEGROOTE, PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PET DONKEY OUT THERE IN THAT SHED.  ELECTRIC FENCES DO NOT STOP PITS !!! AND THAT PIT WILL COME BACK TO KILL YOUR DONKEY IF IT IS NOT CAPTURED.  THEN THERE WILL BE MORE PITS TO DEAL WITH.

BRANSON MO - GILBERT NICHOLS SAYS HE IS IN FAVOR OF A PIT BULL BAN IN BRANSON AFTER HE AND HIS LITTLE DOG WERE ATTACKED

Dog attack
NOT EVEN IN BRANSON MISSOURI ARE SENIORS AND THEIR PETS SAFE !!!

Gilbert Nichols has been a long-time resident of Branson.  He says he walked his Shih Tzu/Spaniel Mix around the block every afternoon always on a leash.  He knew about the   PIT BULL   on the corner.  Sometimes it didn't even come out when they walked.  Other times it just sniffs.  And other times it charges at the fence.  Nichols thought he and his little pet were safe with that fence there......

This time he and Floppy were finishing up their walk when the Pit Bull came under the fence and attacked them.  Nichols says he never saw anything happen so fast in his life. The Pit latched on to Floppy and when he tried to get it off the pit turned on him clamping on to his arm.

         "I'VE NEVER HAD ANYTHING SO PAINFUL."

Nichols sustained skin, muscle and tissue damage, which required 17 stitches, while Floppy's right side was ripped open and required 10 inches of staples and an $800 vet bill.  Floppy is still at the vet.

The PIT BULL was taken into custody for 10 days quarantine and then given back to the owner. Nichols says he was surprised when they released the dog back to its owner.  He considers it a vicious dog. And now no one has seen the dog in days and believes it has been relocated.  Animal control says they were unaware of the severity of Nichols' injuires and are now in the process of having to go back and potentially have the court deem the  PIT BULL  as vicious.  If deemed vicious by the court,  they could have the dog  removed.

Nichols' neighbor says they are book-ended by  PIT BULLS.....PITS AT EACH END OF THE STREET AND AT LEAST 3 IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

NICHOLS SAYS:

"OH, HELL YES, I FAVOR AN ORDINANCE BANNING THEM IN BRANSON. I KNOW THEY ARE LOYAL AND SWEET-TEMPERED DOGS, TO A POINT, BUT THEY ARE ALSO UNPREDICTABLE.  WHEN THEY'RE POWERFUL AND UNPREDICTABLE, BAD THINGS CAN HAPPEN."

MADRID SPAIN - A 34-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO TRAINED DANGEROUS DOGS MIGHT HAVE DIED OF A HEART ATTACK AND HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN EATEN ALIVE BY HIS OWN PITS OR HE MIGHT HAVE DIED OF A HEART ATTACK WHILE BEING EATEN ALIVE BY HIS PITS

ANGEL JAVIER, 34, who advertised himself as a trainer of  "DANGEROUS DOGS",  had been missing for 2 days. His girlfriend went to his flat in the district of El Molar and when she opened the front door she was hit by an overpowering stench.  She then saw his 2 PIT BULLS and feces all over the floor. Javier's body was on  the bed.  Parts of his head had been ripped off by the dogs.  His face was shattered with bites and their were lacerastions found all over his body.  Fingerprint analysis had to be used to confirm his identity.

PIT BULLS ARE CLASSIFIED AS DANGEROUS DOGS IN SPAIN AND HAVE TO BE MUZZLED OUTSIDE THE OWNER'S HOME.  PROSPECTIVE OWNERS OF SUCH DOGS HAVE TO UNDERGO A PSYCHOLOGICAL TEST BEFORE THEY ARE ALLOWED TO BUY ONE.

Reports began circulating that Javier's 2 PIT BULLS had begun to eat him because they had no food or water. Police believe the dogs did not begin to eat the  man until he was already dead....

       THE CORONER TOLD REPORTERS HE DIED OF A HEART ATTACK. 

Investigators found no evidence of fowl play. And authorities would not speculate on whether or not the pit bulls had played a part in his death.

BESSEMER PA - PIT BULLS AND OTHER FIGHTING DOGS ARE POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS TO THE COMMUNITY AND IF YOU KEEP ONE YOU PAY UPFRONT TO HELP COVER VICTIM MEDICAL COSTS IN CASE OF AN ATTACK

The cost of keeping PIT BULLS just went up in this little town of about 1,200 people. It will cost a person more than $10,000 to keep a  PIT BULL in Bessemer starting July 1.  Bessemer Borough Council unanimously revised its 25-year-old  PIT BULL ORDINANCE at a special meeting this week......

           UPDATING FEES TO REFLECT CURRENT COSTS.

The dogs are considered dangerous animals and potentially hazardous to the community, their ordinance states.  Council raised the required bond to keep a PIT BULL or similar dog more than 6 months old from $5,000 to $10,000.

THE BOND MUST BE POSTED TO HELP COVER VICTIM MEDICAL COSTS IN CASE OF AN ATTACK.

The Council also raised a sliding scale of annual license fees for keeping PIT BULLS.  They range from $175 per year for one dog to $1,100 for three. The previous scale was $100 to $1,000.  In addition, prospective owners must pay a $75 application fee to get a license.  That was raised from $50.

ALSO, ONE MORE TYPE OF DOG - THE ROTTWEILER -  WAS ADDED TO THE BREEDS CONSIDERED DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS UNDER THE NEW ORDINANCE.

Other dogs which meet the definition in both the old and new ordinance are the American Staffordshire Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, pit bull and "any dog that fits into the above American Kennel Club definition, dogs displaying the majority of traits of any of the above breeds including mixed breeds and.....

CLAY AL - THE MAYOR OF THIS SMALL TOWN WILL RECONSIDER THE VICIOUS DOG ORDINANCE AFTER LOUD AND FURIOUS NUTTERS PACK THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING

Pit bull supporters packed a Monday city council meeting to convince a reconsideration of the ban. Source: Karen Church

http://17barks.blogspot.com/2013/06/is-it-time-for-pit-bull-recall.html

AS THE TOWN OF UNION CITY CA MOURNS THE DEATH OF A CHILD KILLED BY YET ANOTHER  PIT BULL TYPE DOG YESTERDAY- THE 14TH DEATH BY PIT BULL THIS YEAR -  the mayor of a small Alabama town will reconsider a ban on PIT BULLS after dozens of pet owners and animal advocates showed up at a city council meeting to protest the decision.  The Clay City Council had approved the Pit Bull ban 2 weeks ago after Jefferson County Sheriff  Mike Hale was approached by 4 dogs and he had to shoot at them grazing one of the animals.  He described them as Pit Bull type dogs.  After about 75 people showed up at Monday's city council meeting many speaking out with phrases like - "MY PIT BULL WILL LICK YOU TO DEATH" -- the council will now reconsider the ban.

DON'T CAVE IN TO THEM MAYOR WEBSTER WITH THEIR MYTHS LIKE THE "NANNY DOG" AND "NOBODY CAN IDENTIFY A PIT BULL" OR "IT'S A MEDIA CONSPIRACY".

I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THE FAMILY OF 6-YEAR-OLD NEPHI SELU WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TONIGHT IF THEY HAD NOT HAD A PIT BULL FOR A PET AND ALLOWED  LITTLE NEPHI TO PLAY NEAR IT. IT TURNED ON THE CHILD AND IN ONE CRUSHING BITE ON HIS HEAD  ----  KILLED HIM !!!!! THE PIT BULL BELONGED TO AN UNCLE WHO IS A POLICEMAN AND HE WAS HOME WHEN THE MURDER OCCURRED.  IT DOESN'T MATTER IF ADULTS ARE 1 FOOT FROM THE CHILD OR NOT. A PIT CAN'T BE STOPPED ONCE IT STARTS ATTACKING. I'M SURE THE PIT WAS GENTLE AND DOCILE WITH ITS TAIL WAGGING IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CRUSHING BITE. A NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR SPOKE TODAY OF HOW THEY CARRIED MACE EVERYTIME THEY WENT OUTSIDE AND COULD HEAR THE PIT BULL GROWLING AND THROWING ITSELF AGAINST THE FENCE AT THEM.  BUT I'M SURE THE ENTIRE FAMILY  BOUGHT INTO THAT "NANNY DOG" CRAP OR, "MY DOG WOULD NEVER HURT A FLEA" MENTALITY.

IF THIS CHILD HAD BEEN KILLED BY A DEFECTIVE CAR SEAT OR HIGH CHAIR, THAT CAR SEAT OR HIGH CHAIR WOULD BE BANNED. BUT WE ALLOW DOGS BRED FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS TO DO ONE THING - KILL OTHER ANIMALS, AND PEOPLE ARE ANIMALS - TO LIVE IN HOMES WITH CHILDREN AND OFTEN GET LOOSE AND ROAM NEIGHBORHOODS. CHILDREN CAN NOT PLAY FREELY FOR FEAR THEY MIGHT GET TOO CLOSE TO A FENCE AND A GRIPPING DOG WILL REACH THROUGH AND BITE DOWN AND NOT LET GO.

NEVER BEFORE HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE SUFFERED SO MANY HORRENDOUS INJURIES AND AMPUTATIONS AND DEATH BY A CERTAIN TYPE OF DOG.  AND THE MYTH THAT AN AVERAGE PERSON CAN'T IDENTIFY A DOG THAT HAS PIT IN IT IS ALSO JUST THAT --A MYTH. AND WHEN DACHSHUNDS, CHIHUAHUAS, RETRIEVERS, OR ANY OTHER DOG STARTS KILLING CHILDREN AND THE ELDERLY AT THE RATE PIT BULLS DO, THEN LET'S BAN THEM. BANNING ANY TYPE OF DOG MEANS THAT THAT DOG WILL BE GRANDFATHERED IN, BUT NO NEW DOGS OF THAT TYPE WILL BE ALLOWED.  VERY STRICT RULES WILL BE PLACED ON THE KEEPING OF THAT DOG THAT IS GRANDFATHERED IN.

BUT EVEN WITH THIS, THE CHILDREN OF THE PEOPLE WHO INSIST ON HAVING PIT BULLS, ROTTWEILERS, HUSKY/GERMAN SHEPHERD/WOLF AND WOLF CROSSES, AND A FEW OTHER BREEDS KNOWN TO BITE AND ATTACK MORE THAN OTHER BREEDS - THESE CHILDREN ARE OFFERED UP AS SACRIFICES TO THESE ANIMALS AND THEIR INSTINCTS BY ADULTS WHO GIVE THESE DOGS HUMAN TRAITS LIKE "NANNY DOGS",   "LOVING AND GIVING AND KIND-HEARTED",  "LICK YOU TO DEATH", "RIDE 'EM LIKE HORSES"  ---PUTTING DOGS ABOVE THE SAFETY OF HUMAN BEINGS ESPECIALLY CHILDREN !!!!!

SHELTERS EVERYWHERE ARE FULL OF THESE DOGS AND THESE NUTTERS  AND LOVERS WANT CONTROL THE BACKYARD BREEDING  OR THE  CRIMINALS THAT CHOOSE TO OWN THESE DOGS WITHOUT STRICT LAWS SO WHAT'S LEFT IS TO HAVE STRICT LAWS  - BAN THEM.

TONAWANDA INDIAN RESERVATION, GENESEE COUNTY NY - A PIT BULL MIX LEAPED INTO A WOMAN'S CAR AS SHE WAS PUMPING GAS AND KILLED HER BELOVED CHIHUAHUA "BB"

Woman is bit, dog killed during attack

ASHLEY DIAL  received her Chihuahua BB from a relative when she came home from Iraq.  Little BB was 4 years old. Late Saturday night they drove to get gas at Arrowhawk gas station and 2 larger dogs were roaming around.  She finished pumping her gas and was opening her car door to get her wallet when the  PIT BULL MIX  bolted inside and attacked BB.  She desperately tried to pry the Pit's mouth open and get it to release BB.  SHE BROKE HER FINGERS TRYING !!!!!

"IT WAS JUST UNIMAGINABLE. I CAN'T EXPLAIN IN WORDS HOW I FELT. I JUST WANTED TO GET HER TO A HOSPITAL, BUT SHE WAS ALREADY DEAD. I COULDN'T DO ANYTHING."

Someone called the Pit Bull Mix's owner and he came to the gas station.  All Ashley asked was that he put the Pit down, and he argued at first.  Then he offered to put it down.  She hopes he does because she feels that this dog should not live to kill another dog. A chief deputy at the Genesee County Sheriff's Office said they had received a call earlier that the dogs were loose, but on the reservation there is no such thing as a stray dog and there's not a lot they can do.

They tell her that her only recourse may be a civil suit and workers at the Arrowhawk gas station  say they are heartbroken for Ashley.  THEY HAVE VIDEOTAPE OF THE ATTACK AND SAY THEY WILL COOPERATE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT.

KELLER TX - 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED AUSTIN DYE, 13, IN APRIL - THE HERO THAT CAME TO HIS AID TO SAVE HIS LIFE RECEIVED AN AWARD

G00CDB04.8

In April Larry Foster was driving his car and came upon AUSTIN DYE, 13,  being attacked by  2 PIT BULLS.  Foster jumped out of his car and charged at the dogs in an attempt to scare them away.  Fortunately, his actions stopped the life-threatening attack and the dogs retreated.  Fearing that the dogs would return, Mr. Foster helped move the injured youth into his car and drove him home as he called 911.

Once Austin was taken to the hospital, Foster worked with animal service officers and police to locate and apprehend the dogs.

After 2 surgeries Austin has recovered from his injuries.  During the May 21 City Council meeting, Larry Foster was awarded the city's second Civilian Lifesaving Award  --

"He exhibited incredible bravery that day and his quick, decisive actions probably saved the life of that boy. That day, Mr. Foster was  A TRUE HERO".........

MR. FOSTER SPEAKS:

"THEY SAY IT TAKES A VILLAGE, WELL I SAW THE VILLAGE SHOW UP THAT DAY.  IT WAS THE PARAMEDICS, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, THE FIREMEN AND THE ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS......I WANT TO THANK OUR FIRST RESPONDERS.  DIVINE BLESSINGS, THESE PEOPLE DO EVERY DAY.  IT'S A NORMAL COURSE OF EVENTS."

MY COMMENT:  THIS IS SUCH A WONDERFUL STORY.  BUT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT THE PEOPLE MISSING FROM THIS "VILLAGE" ARE THE CITY OR COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WHO SHOULD BE FORMING ORDINANCES TO GUARD AGAINST CHILDREN EVER BEING SUBJECTED TO A PIT BULL OR OTHER VICIOUS UNDOG ATTACK.
THE NUMBER OF SENIORS HOLDING UP IN THEIR HOMES AFRAID TO GO OUT BECAUSE OF  VICIOUS DOGS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD KEEPS GROWING .  THE NUMBER OF MAULINGS, AMPUTATIONS, AND SHREDDED UNUSABLE LIMBS KEEPS CLIMBING.  THE NUMBER OF DEATHS BY PIT BULLS AND A FEW OTHER DOG BREEDS CONTINUES TO GROW.  WHEN WILL OUR LAW MAKERS JOIN IN THE VILLAGE TO KEEP OUR CITIZENS SAFE FROM THIS SCOURGE ON OUR NEIGHBORHOODS?????

DOES ANYBODY REALLY CARE WHETHER THIS DOG IS A PIT BULL OR A BULLMASTIFF? CAN ANYONE SHOW THE PUBLIC THE PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, OR GREAT GRANDPARENTS OF THIS DOG? THE DOG LOOKS LIKE A PIT BULL-TYPE, MOLOSSER OR GRIPPING DOG AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN AROUND ANY CHILDREN AND NEVER AROUND A 10-MONTH-OLD BABY. NOW THE DRAMA CONTINUES AS THIS STORY CALLS IT A PIT BULL AND IT BELONGS TO JANNA GARLOCK'S STEPSON WHO IS OUT OF TOWN....OR IT BELONGS TO MEGAN PITMANN, THE LIVE-IN GIRLFRIEND OF THE STEPSON........ON AND ON AND ON.....

STORY

A 10-month-old boy was taken to the hospital Friday after being attacked and bitten by a neighbor's  PIT BULL.  The incident happened around 2 pm, but a Pasco County Sheriff's report says deputied and Animal Control officers weren't alerted of the incident until evening.

So far, officials say the baby's mother and a neighbor were standing outside of the home of the 2100 block of Ranchita Trail when the attack happened.  They heard the dog's growls and walked back in to find the Pit Bull biting the baby.  The boy was treated at a local hospital for bite wounds to his head and shoulder, but officials have not released an update on his condition.

the dog was recently rehomed due to a long term relationship ending and was scared and alone in his new surroundings. he was not allowed to roam free but was scared enough to jump his fence and attempt to make it to familiar surroundings. I own both his mother and father and can tell you that neither of them nor any of his 16 siblings have ever shown any aggression towards anyone, animal or human. This is a sad and unfortunate situation which is the result of a family dog being removed from his home and the only people he has ever known. I'm glad that the horses are all going to be ok but I wish people would take a moment to step back and examine the events that led up to this rather than simply dismissing it as another careless owner or vicious dog.

PLEASANTON CA - A PRESA CANARIO BIT A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY IN THE FACE FOR THE SECOND TIME- 2 BITES FREE AND HE GETS TO LIVE !!!


PARENTS PLEAD NOT GUILTY !!!

A repeat incident of a Presa Canario biting a 5-year-old boy in the face prompted Alameda County prosecutors to charge the child's mother and the dog's owner with felony child endangerment, authorities said Friday. The most recent bite occurred May 19 at an apartment in Pleasanton. Officers and paramedics reported finding the boy with facial injuries after he had been left in a room with the.........

             96-POUND 6-YEAR-OLD PRESA CANARIO.

MARC KORNBERG, who owned the dog and lived in the apartment, was home at the time, along with the boy's mother, 27-year-old MYRVETE LILA.  The boy was treated for his wounds at a hospital and the dog was seized.

An investigation then revealed that the dog had earlier bitten the boy in the face after the two were left alone in a room on MARCH 6, and that also required hospital treatment.  The dog was at that time temporarily placed on home quarantine at Kornberg's request.

After this second incident, the dog was found to be vicious at a public hearing and was sent to a rehabilitation and training facility in Ohio.  The investigation was sent to prosecutors who issued felony arrest warrants Friday.  Kornberg and Lila were booked at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, and the boy was placed in protective custody with Alameda County Child Protective Services.

JACKSON MS - A PIT BULL CAME INTO A BACKYARD AFTER A PIT BULL THAT WAS CHAINED UP AND ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY INSTEAD ???

WLOX.com - The News for South Mississippi

 A stray PIT BULL came through a partially opened gate and attacked a 5-year-old boy. He needed 45 stitches to mend the injuries. His mother says she keeps her uncle's Pit Bull on a chain in her back yard. She thinks the stray Pit Bull was trying to get to that Pit to fight when it attacked her son.  With the help of a friend she was able to get the Pit Bull off her son.

"A  dog should not attack a human like that.  I don't think they are good dogs anyway. As far as Pit Bulls, they will turn on their own."

MY COMMENT: PEOPLE, TAKE A LOOK AT THE UNCLE'S PIT BULL !!!
