FORDSVILLE, OHIO COUNTY KY - AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THEY FOUND SOME BONES OF MISSING SERIAL ANIMAL HOARDER - PATRICIA RITZ - ON HER PROPERTY WITH ABOUT 50 WOLF HYBIRDS



RESCUE WORKERS SAY THE ONLY SAVING GRACE OF THE SITUATION WAS THAT THE MISTREATMENT OF ANIMALS AT THE PROPERTY WAS OVER.

PATRICIA RITZ, believed to be 67, was reported to be missing by neighbors who said they hadn't seen her in about 2 weeks. Human bones were found on her property among about 58 dogs or wolf mixes. Authorities say it is possible that she was eaten by some of the dozens of  "HYBRID WOLF DOGS"  she kept. Records show that she had a history of cruelty charges and convictions extending back a quarter of a century:

In 1986 she was sentenced to 1 year probation in an investigation involving at least 50 dogs in Posey County Indiana. The next year, 1987, she was convicted of 5 counts in Evansville Indiana, and was ordered to never transport dogs into Indiana again.  Other convictions came in 1997 in Greenville Kentucky involving 120 dogs. In 1999, 184 dogs were found on her property and 159 of those were euthanized.  In 2002 another involving 38 dogs. In 2003, 34 more were euthanized because of poor temperament and health problems.

SPOKANE WA - A LOOSE PIT BULL CHARGED OUT AFTER 2 WOMAN AND THEIR SMALL PETS AS THEY WERE WALKING ON THANKSGIVING MORNING - THEIR POODLE MIX WAS MAULED



A loose PIT BULL attacked 2 sisters and their pets as they were walking on Thanksgiving morning. The pit chomped down on their Poodle Mix's neck and by the time 3 adults got it off,  they had racked up $900 in vet bills.  And the pit nearly bit off one of their fingers.  Now they are concerned that the owner has a history of not properly restraining his pit and they need to know if the dog has had its rabies shot, but the owner was not answering the door!

LANSING MI - A LOOSE PIT BULL ATTACKED A DOG BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER ON THE RIVER TRAIL IN MOORES PARK- POLICE SHOT AND KILLED THE PIT

Lansing Police say that dispatchers received several calls shortly after 5pm about a loose PIT BULL in the area of River Trail in Moores Park. One caller told them that a dog was fighting another dog.  When police arrived  a man who had been walking his dog was trying to get a pit bull off his dog. They broke the pit bull off the man's dog once, but it attacked the man's dog again and police shot it.  The dead pit bull had no identification on it and police turned it over to Ingham County Animal Control for a followup investigation. The man was treated for some injuries and it was unclear if his dog suffered serious injuries.

KEREMEOS BC CANADA - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL CHARGED FROM ACROSS THE STREET AND KILLED A BELOVED 10-YEAR-OLD MALTESE/SHIH TZU MIX




Donna Stolz says she had just carried her beloved 10-year-old Maltese/Shitzu  "ANGEL"  outside to use the bathroom last Friday when a neighbor's  PIT BULL  ran from across the street and chomped down on the tiny pet and began tossing it around.

"IT WAS SUCH A SHOCK TO ME.  HER INTESTINES AND LIVER WERE JUST LAYING THERE ON THE STEPS!"



The police were called and an officer came and helped her take Angel to a vet but she was dead before they got there.  Donna and Wayne Stolz were told by other neighbors that the pit bull had recently attacked another dog so the owners agreed to voluntarily turn it over to be euthanized.  They are thankful that they will not have to pay for a lawyer now and glad the pit will be put down, but they do have the vet bill to pay.

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

LOSING ANGEL WAS ESPECIALLY HARD ON THIS COUPLE BECAUSE SHE WAS SUCH A GOOD COMPANION, AND BECAUSE THEY GOT HER AFTER THEIR SON, WAYNE, WAS KILLED IN A HORRIBLE ACCIDENT IN 2002.  THE CAR WAYNE WAS TRAVELING IN FROM KELOWNA WAS COMPLETELY CRUSHED BY LUMBER THAT HAD SPILLED OFF A TRUCK. DONNA SAYS SHE FELT LIKE HALF HER HEART WAS TAKEN AWAY....AND THEN THE FOLLOWING YEAR THEY GOT ANGEL....

TWO DAYS AFTER ANGEL'S DEATH THEY NOTICED A SMALL BLACK CAT FREEZING OUT IN THE STREET AND THEY TOOK IT IN.  SHE ATE ANGEL'S FOOD AND SLEPT WHERE ANGEL SLEPT.

HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE AR - ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS IN THE AREA SPEAK OUT AFTER HORRIFIC DEADLY ATTACK ON JOAN KAPPEN ON NOVEMBER 21 - BUT DO ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS REALLY OFFER ANSWERS TO KEEPING CITIZENS SAFE ???


                                        VIDEO AND STORY 


HANS KAPPEN WHOSE WIFE JOAN WAS ATTACKED AND KILLED BY A BULLMASTIFF ON NOVEMBER 21 - "I DON'T CARE WHO THESE POLITICIANS ARE.  TELL THEM TO GET TO WORK AND GET OFF THEIR F****** A***** AND GET LAWS IN PLACE TO GET RID OF DOGS LIKE THIS."

SOME CITIES ARE ALREADY DOING JUST THAT.  NORTH LITTLE ROCK IS ONE OF 30 CITIES ACROSS ARKANSAS TO BAN A DANGEROUS BREED, SPECIFICALLY PIT BULLS.  IN THE 9 YEARS SINCE THAT BAN HAS BEEN IN EFFECT, THE NUMBER OF VICIOUS DOG ATTACKS IN THE CITY HAS DECREASED DRAMATICALLY. BUT.....

ARE ANIMAL CONTROL DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS REALLY LOOKING AT THE "BIG PICTURE" WHEN IT COMES TO THESE TYPES OF ANIMALS ???????  IF ONE READS WHAT THEY SAY CAREFULLY, IT SEEMS THEY DON'T GET IT.

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

HOT SPRINGS ANIMAL SERVICES DIRECTOR DAN BUGG STATES THIS:

"WE'VE SEEN AN INCREASE IN THE SEVERITY OF ATTACKS BY WHAT ARE REFERRED TO AS "GRIPPER BREEDS"  MEANING BREEDS THAT BITE DOWN AND DON'T LET GO....THE DOG HANGS ON AND THAT'S WHERE WE GET A LOT OF DAMAGE FROM RIPS AND TEARS TO SKIN OF ADULTS  AND CHILDREN. RESPONSIBLE OWNERSHIP CAN BE EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE THAN BREED-SPECIFIC BANS WHEN IT COMES TO KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE. WE WANT PEOPLE TO GO OUT AND PLAY IN A PARK, WALK THEIR DOG ON A LEASH AT NIGHT OR IN THE EVENING OR DAYTIME AND BE SAFE AND EVERYBODY GET BACK HOME IN ONE PIECE."

DIRECTOR DAN BUGG AND OFFICER TRAVIS PASKELL BOTH TALK ABOVE THE BASIC FACT THAT EVEN THE LARGEST TALLEST "BIG OLE MAN" CANNOT CONTROL EVEN ONE OF THESE GRIPPING DOGS WHILE WALKING IT ON A LEASH. THESE ANIMALS ARE FULLY CAPABLE OF JERKING THE LEASHES OUT OF AN OWNER'S HANDS, OR AS IT IS OFTEN THE CASE, DRAGGING THE OWNER ON THE OTHER END OF THE LEASH TO MAUL AND KILL OTHER PETS OR TO ATTACK OTHER PEOPLE AND BREAK BONES, BITE INTO ARTERIES AND VEINS, SCALP AND AMPUTATE LIMBS AND....RIP AND TEAR SKIN!!!!!  THESE MUTANTS ARE ALSO MASTERS AT ESCAPING ANY FORM OF CONTAINMENT SHORT OF A ZOO-TYPE CONTAINMENT.  SO TO SAY THE WORDS - "KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEASH AND CONFINED TO YOUR PROPERTY"  DOES NOT IN ANY WAY MAKE THE PUBLIC MORE SAFE FROM THESE MONSTERS. ITS JUST WORDS.  THESE DOGS HAVE TO BE PHYSICALLY AND SURELY CONTAINED - WALKING THESE DOGS ON A LEASH IN A NEIGHBORHOOD IS LIKE PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE WITH OTHERS LIVES - DON'T PLAY RUSSIAN ROULETTE WITH CHILDREN AND GRANDMOTHER'S LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!

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

NORTH LITTLE ROCK ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER  DAVID MILES WHO HAS RAISED 3 PIT BULLS  SAYS THIS:

"FROM RAISING PIT BULLS AND HAVING PIT BULLS, KNOWING  ----*****WHAT THEY ARE AND WHAT TYPES OF ANIMALS THEY ARE AND THEY CAN BE AND TO SEE WHAT THEY'VE TURNED INTO*****------, IT'S HARD FOR ME TO SAY THIS BUT I ACTUALLY LIKE BREED-SPECIFIC LEGISLATION. OUR BITE NUMBERS, ESPECIALLY THE SEVERITY OF THE BITES, HAVE GONE DOWN QUITE A LOT.  IF PEOPLE WERE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH CHIHUAHUAS OR IF THEY WERE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH LABS BEING VICIOUS AND ATTACKING PEOPLE I COULD UNDERSTAND THEM BEING BANNED, BUT TIME AND TIME AGAIN IT COMES TO : THEY ARE PIT BULLS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT."

MILES SEEMS TO LACK KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUE HISTORY OF GRIPPING DOGS!

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

YES, MR. KAPPAN, IT DOES COME DOWN TO POLITICIANS GETTING OFF THEIR F****** A**** AND SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH OF WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING IN OUR SOCIETY.  SAFETY IS A FADING MEMORY IN OUR MINDS.





BABY ALLOWED TO JUMP ON ROTTWEILER - PARENTS LAUGH AND ENCOURAGE THE BEHAVIOR AS "PLAYING WITH THE DOG"

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, BROOKLYN NY - A WOMAN WAS PUTTING HER 2 PIT BULLS IN HER CAR WHEN THE MALE WENT AFTER THE FEMALE INSTEAD - WHEN THE OWNER INTERVENED HER PIT ATTACKED HER

NYC PAPERS OUT. Social media use restricted to low res file max 184 x 128 pixels and 72 dpi
A Brooklyn cop shot and killed a  PIT BULL  that clamped its teeth into its owner's leg around 8am on Monday and would not let go. The woman known to her neighbors as Alison was attempting to put her 2 pit bulls in a car and the male named "Cain" did not want to get in the car, and instead went after her other pit bull named Sasha. Then Cain turned on its owners and would not let go of her leg. Police shot it off her and killed it. The injured woman seemed ungrateful and began screaming at them:

"THEY KILLED MY BABY ! THEY KILLED MY BABY! THEY JUST SHOT MY DOG !"

A neighbor said she was bleeding badly and was taken by ambulance to Kings County Hospital.

SUSQUEHANNA TOWNSHIP PA - 3 PIT BULLS RUN LOOSE AND BITE A CHILD AND THEN INVADED A YARD AND KILLED A BELOVED POMERANIAN "MAX"

Pam Miller had been caring for her sister's 3-pound Pomeranian "Max" because her sister has cancer. She says that's what makes this attack so much worse.  Each day she would let Max go out to do his business and get fresh air and he would just walk around in their yard. But on Saturday Max was attacked by 3 PIT BULLS  that ripped him apart.  Miller says the image of Max being killed  is one she can't forget and when she lays down at night the image plays over and over again.

She says she ran out and began kicking the one pit that had him in its mouth but she could not save her little pet.  She warns people to please not have mean dogs like that and for neighbors to call the police if they see this.  Susquehanna Township has an ordinance that does not allow animals to run loose without being accompanied by a person.  She is afraid the dogs will go after a child.....HOWEVER......

POLICE SAY THE DOGS DID, IN FACT. BITE A CHILD THE SAME DAY MAX WAS KILLED AND THEY ARE INVESTIGATING. THEY SAY THAT ALL 3 MUTANTS HAVE BEEN CAPTURED.

TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO - A PIT BULL BROKE AWAY FROM ITS OWNER AND ATTACKED 2 CHILDREN


Mourise Glod was walking along Commissioner Street, Plymouth, when a dog broke away from its owner and attacked her son.  She lifted her son up with one hand but the PIT BULL bit him....

 "I BEGAN TO SCREAM FOR HELP AND THE OWNER OF THE PIT BULL, VINCENT TAYLOR, RAN OUT TO TRY TO PRISE OPEN THE DOG'S JAW. WHEN WE GOT HIM OUT MR. TAYLOR TOOK ME TO THE HOSPITAL AND HE PURCHASED THE ANTIBIOTICS."

The pit bull then went after a teenage boy, but this story does not tell us about his injuries. The dog was shot by police officials as soon as they arrived on the scene.  Mourise Glod says it was an unfortunate incident and she praises the owner of the dog for accepting full responsibility in the matter. But she also asks for tougher legislation to handle dangerous dogs saying....

"THE DOG ISSUE IS A SERIOUS ONE IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO.  THE PIT BULLS ARE DEADLY.  I FIND PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE PIT BULLS IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO."

PENSACOLA FL - 1983 - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL AND DRAGGED HER BY A LEG BITING DOWN TO THE BONE AND EATING OUT A HUGE CHUNK - HER LEG WAS EVENTUALLY AMPUTATED

Riverview resident Vaughan Chambers plays with Jade, a pit bull owned by Jeannie Bush of Wimauma. Although she ultimately lost her lower left leg as the result of a pit bull attack when she was 10, Chambers is an advocate for the breed and blames those who train them to fight.

NOW AT 40 YEARS OF AGE VAUGHAN CHAMBERS IS RAISING FUNDS FOR A PERMANENT PROTHESIS WHICH WILL COST $14,800. SHE BECAME A HUGE PIT BULL ADVOCATE AFTER BEING INTRODUCED TO HER SISTER-IN-LAWS PIT BULLS EVEN AFTER ONE OF THESE ANIMALS HAD SHREDDED HER LEG. I ASK - IS THIS A NEW PHENOMENON OF THE  PIT NUTTER WORLD WHERE PIT OWNERS/BREEDERS INFILTRATE THE MINDS OF VICTIMS WITH SUCH NONSENSE ??? 
                       
                                  *************************************************************************

WIKIPEDIA - Stockholm syndrome, or capture–bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.[1][2] The FBI's Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 27% of victims show evidence of Stockholm syndrome.[3]
Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.”[4] ONE COMMONLY USED HYPOTHESIS TO EXPLAIN THE EFFECT OF STOCKHOLM SYNDROME IS BASED ON FREUDIAN THEORY. IT SUGGESTS THAT THE BONDING IS THE INDIVIDUAL'S RESPONSE TO TRAUMA IN BECOMING A VICTIM. IDENTIFYING WITH THE AGGRESSOR IS ONE WAY THAT THE EGO DEFENDS ITSELF.  WHEN A VICTIM BELIEVES THE SAME VALUES AS THE AGGRESSORS, THEY CEASE TO BE A THREAT. [5]
Battered-person syndrome is an example of activating the capture–bonding psychological mechanism, as are military basic training and fraternity bonding by hazing.
                             
                                *************************************************

VAUGHAN CHAMBERS was 10 years old in 1983 when she was attacked by a  PIT BULL bred for fighting  that was staked to the ground, along with 21 other pit bulls,  on an abandoned lot.  The emaciated dog escaped and tried to pull her back into the lot biting her leg to the bone and taking a huge chunk of muscle from her leg.  She was faced with possible amputation but because her father was in the military, she had more than 20 surgeries and underwent some of the same types of experimental procedures soldiers endure. Last May she finally had to have her lower leg amputated.

Chambers began dating her husband about 10 years ago and was apprehensive about pit bulls. It was her boyfriend's sister that introduced her to pit bulls. SO NOW SHE HAS ALL THE PIT NUTTER SPEAK DOWN PAT !!!  AND  I GUESS SHE HAS NEVER HEARD OF DNA OR GENETICS:


* IT'S THE PEOPLE WHO TRAIN THEM THAT ARE AT FAULT.

* THEY ARE MADE TO BE AGGRESSIVE AND HOSTILE.

* ALL DOGS BITE WHEN THEY ARE IN SURVIVAL MODE.

* THERE'S A GOOD SIDE TO THESE DOGS.

* I WANT TO CHANGE PUBLIC PERCEPTION ABOUT THE BREED.

* I TRULY BELIEVE THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS.

* WHEN PIT BULLS ARE RAISED IN LOVING ENVIRONMENTS THEY SHINE AS PROTECTORS AND COMPANIONS.

LITTLE ROCK AR - "ONE BITE RULE" IS LIKE AN OLD WIVES TALE - THE BREED ITSELF BREEDS FORESEEABILITY- KEEP "THEM" LOCKED UP OR FACE CRIMINAL AND CIVIL SUITS


LITTLE ROCK (KATV)--After recent dog attacks and even some that resulted in deaths, Channel 7 explains what liabilities dog owners face after their dog attacks.
Attorney Gary Green said a common misconception is the "one-bite" rule.
Many still believe that if their dog bites for the first time, they're not liable.
However, Green said in this day in age, where attacks are becoming too common, that rule is like an old wives tale.
In the last year, we have reported at least six dog attacks, the most recent; an attack on Thursday in Hot Springs Village, resulting in the death of a 75-year old woman.
While the village has no criminal statute for dog attacks, other counties and cities do, which could result in criminal charges for dog owners.
"You could be looking at up to manslaughter or some type of Class A Misdemeanor at least if someone is killed," said Green.
Green says the "one-bite" rule is no longer applicable in many dog attack cases. He adds, even if an owner asks why they're responsible if they didn't see it coming?
"The breed in itself breeds foreseeability, if that person who is asking me that question owns a Pit Bull, you should have seen it coming," adds Green.
He goes on to say that when it comes to bigger dogs and breeds known for fighting or protecting owners; such as Pit Bulls, Bull Mastiffs and Dobermans, it's best to keep a close eye on them and avoid possible attacks.
"You better keep them pinned up, you better be watching your dogs and as they grow older and crankier, be aware of that before it becomes a problem," said Green.
Not only can a dog owner face criminal charges, but civil suits are also brought forth.
Green adds that in dog attack cases, juries tend to lean toward the victims especially if the dog breed is known for being vicious.

SAN PEDRO CA - A MAN WAS CAUGHT ON A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA ENTERING A YARD AND TORTURING AND RAPING A DOG

A few months ago the owner of an Akita heard his dog make a shriek in the middle of the night.  He ran out to check on his dog and he found a cell phone that someone had dropped.  Two weeks later he heard his dog make the same chilling noise and he found his dog acting oddly and discovered a gate opened. He purchased a surveillance camera because he suspected a prowler was targeting his house.

On November 10 the man called police after he found a disturbing scene on his camera. He told police that he had woke up to find fur all over his backyard.  He checked his video system and was horrified.....

"IT WAS TOTAL DISGUST.  I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD CROSS SOMEBODY'S MIND TO DO THAT.  NOW I FIND OUT THERE IS A TERMINOLOGY FOR IT. IT WAS UNIMAGINABLE TO ME...FOR IT TO GO ON THAT LONG WAS HEART WRENCHING."

CHRISTOPHER ALEXANDER CACERES, 22, WAS CHARGED WITH ONE FELONY COUNT OF CRUELTY TO AN ANIMAL - TORTURING AND TORMENTING THE DOG AND SUBJECTING IT TO BESTIALITY.  HE WAS ALSO CHARGED WITH A MISDEMEANOR COUNT OF SEXUAL ASSAULT ON AN ANIMAL FOR UNLAWFULLY HAVING INTERCOURSE WITH A DOG.  HE WAS ALSO CHARGED WITH BURGLARY WHICH WILL ADD MORE YEARS TO HIS SENTENCE.

CLEBURNE COUNTY AL - A RANBURNE RESIDENT SPEAKS OUT IN THE ANNISTON STAR ABOUT THE LACK OF LAWS TO PROTECT CITIZENS AND THEIR PETS FROM VICIOUS DOGS THAT CONTINUE TO RUN LOOSE AND MAIM AND KILL OTHER ANIMALS

SPEAK OUT - LETTER TO THE ANNISTON STAR DATED 11-18-13:

As a new resident of Cleburne County, I am horrified by the laws the County Commission finds to be humane regarding the control, or lack of control, of dogs by their owners.

Vicious dogs, which the owner knows of and has been witness to, acts of mutilation and killing of multiple neighborhood cats and the attacks on other dogs, are free to do as they please.  Shame on you and your mothers for raising such callous and heartless beings (note the lack of the use of humane).

I have made several attempts to address the cruelty with the landlord and the owners I know.  One owner refuses to act against the abuse and destruction of the neighborhood animals by his own pet and enthusiastically promotes its freedom to do so.

This is the age of communication;  ""the press" is no longer limited to local newspapers.  Viral posts raising support and condemnation of one cause or another of the Internet are everyday events, and I am gearing up for such a pursuit. The law may be on the dog owner's side, but the law is not always right, and what always is right is seldom the law. However, as the commission knows (and has the authority to amend), laws can be made right.

JUAREZ MEXICO - OFFICIALS SAY THAT A FAMILY OF 8 WAS MURDERED OVER A DOG FIGHTING DEBT

Police have arrested 2 suspects in the brutal murder of a family of eight, all bound and stabbed to death in Ciudad Juarez that adjoins El Paso Texas on the border.  Jesus Mendoza and Edgar Lujan, both employees in city factories, allegedly took revenge on the family after Maximo Romero, 27, refused to honor a lost bet on dog fights involving his PIT BULL TERRIERS.    Although there was speculation that the debt was for a "STUD FEE" for dog breeding, according to the suspects the motive behind the brutal killing was a $115 debt for gambling at a dog fight. Slaughtered were a 60-year-old woman, 2 of her daughters, their spouses and 3 very young children.  A 2-month-old infant was spared. Prosecutors say the young children were killed so they could not later identify the attackers.

Ciudad Juarez is also known as Mexico's "CITY OF DOGS" with a total of 200,000 stray dogs. Every month, around 700 dogs are found dead on city streets, killed by hunger, accidents or intentional killing.

VICTORVILLE CA - A LOOSE PIT BULL ROAMED THE STREETS ALL DAY AND THEN ATTACKED A MOTHER AND HER SON AS THEY WERE COMING HOME FROM MCDONALDS



Lupe Rodriguez, 36, and neighbor Jackie Gomez said they made calls to Victorville Animal Control on November 13 to report that a  PIT BULL  was loose and roaming the neighborhood that morning. Shortly before 5pm, Rodriguez and her 3 sons returned home after a trip to McDonald's.  The pit bit her son Robert on the leg.  Even though she was scared she ran to help her son and the pit turned on her and bit her left arm. She says it was terrifying and she began yelling for help.  Neighbors came running to their rescue.  But no amount of pulling on the dog's collar, kicking, punching or holding the pit bull down would stop it from attacking.  Jackie Gomez finally stabbed the dog with a knife.  It continued attacking even after being stabbed, but finally succumbed to the knife wounds.

"WE ARE PRETTY TRAUMATIZED.  WE'VE SEEN THESE TYPES OF ATTACKS ON TV BUT NOT UP CLOSE."

Lupe Rodriguez  and her son Robert were taken by ambulance to a Medical Center where she got 31 stitches in her arm and more in the side of her head where her head had struck the curb during the attack.  Robert had 26 stitches in his leg.

The mother of 3 is upset at what she perceives as a lack of response by Victorville Animal Control.  They didn't respond to the loose pit bull until it became an emergency.

ASHVILLE NC - A PIT BULL ATTACK VICTIM SPEAKS OUT ABOUT HER VICIOUS MAULING IN 2011 AND THE LAW SUIT THAT WAS RECENTLY SETTLED



In August 2011 Christy Palucha was walking through North View Mobile Home Park in Weaverville when an adult male

PIT BULL  PUSHED OUT A WINDOW AIR CONDITIONING UNIT AND CHARGED THROUGH THE TRAILER WINDOW AND ATTACKED HER. 

She sued the owner of the trailer park charging that he was  liable for the attack because the dog was at least 30 pounds larger than park rules allowed for. She settled this month after the owner agreed to pay approximately $55,000 in medical bills, restitution and pain and suffering compensation.  She has undergone 4 operations - the mutant tore off part of her ear, slashed her neck, ripped off an eyelid and left severe wounds on her left leg.

MY COMMENT:  I THINK CHRISTY PALUCHA DESERVES A MILLION DOLLARS !!! AN INTERESTING SIDEBAR TO THIS STORY - A DOG BEHAVIORIST, KIM BROPHEY, WAS CALLED ON TO BE AN EXPERT WITNESS IF THE CASE WENT FORWARD --- SHE IS PREPARING TO LAUNCH A "NATIONAL EDUCATION CAMPAIGN" TO INFORM PEOPLE HOW TO SELECT, HANDLE AND CARE FOR DOGS SUCCESSFULLY.  HER PROGRAM IS CALLED THE DRIVE CAMPAIGN AND ITS BASED ON THE IDEA THAT AN ANIMAL'S BEHAVIOR IS SHAPED BY FOUR MAJOR FACTORS:

1)EDUCATION     2) ENVIRONMENT     3)GENETICS       4)SELF

I WANT SOMEBODY TO SPLAIN THE "SELF" PART TO ME CAUSE I DON'T GET IT.  AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, SHE COULD HAVE SKIPPED THE EDUCATION AND ENVIRONMENT ALSO AND JUST HAD ONE MAJOR FACTOR -----GENETICS !!!!!

HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE AR - A BULLMASTIFF HAS MAULED AND KILLED A 75-YEAR-OLD WOMAN

UPDATE:  VIDEO - "I HEARD THAT THE OWNERS OF THE DOG LAWYERED UP WITHIN 5 MINUTES AFTER THE ATTACK WITHOUT ONE WORD OF CONDOLENCE TO ME FOR THE DEATH OF MY WIFE....WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO ???

UPDATE:  HUSBAND HANS KAPPEN DEMANDS JUSTICE FOR WIFE KILLED IN DOG ATTACK - "She was the most wonderful person there ever was. We need to make the people responsible for their actions. If you have dogs like that, you should be totally responsible for the consequences.  I feel somewhere along the lines justice has to be served." Hans Kappen says that his wife had been walking the same route for 7 years and had never had a problem until today.

Mr. Kappen, please hire the best lawyer that you possibly can, and then find out about this OTHER ATTACK WHERE A SMALL BOY'S LIFE WAS TAKEN, PLEASE.  THEN DO YOUR BEST TO GET JUSTICE FOR YOUR BELOVED WIFE  BY HOLDING THE OWNER, THE BREEDER, AND THOSE IN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE FOR  ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN.



SO AMERICANS CAN GET EATEN ALIVE BY A LARGE MONSTER DOG EVEN IF YOU LIVE IN THE LARGEST GATED COMMUNITY IN THE U.S.

takeresponsibility says:
So what someone is failing to mention is this is not the first time these people have had a dog that they own kill somebody. This is the second one in a year. So yes Lori Hutchinson the owners are completely at fault and should go to jail for their complete lack of responsibility. And the authorities need to be aware of this but I’m sure they are not.



COMMENT:Karen says:
If this dog, as takeresponsibilty commented, was a litter mate to the one that killed Ayden Evans, which is pure speculation at this point, then this dog too was a pit mix (about 80 percent PIT). I know for a FACT that dog was a pit mix that killed the 5 year old in Jessieville, no matter what the news stories said the owner called it. That was verified by the vet that examined the dog- in open hearings during the Garland County dangerous dog hearing, immediately after the 5 year old was killed..

WIKIPEDIA - THE BREED LINES COME FROM THE MASTIFF AND THE OLD ENGLISH BULLDOG. 60% - 40%

          UNNAMED FAMILY MEMBERS WITH A LARGE DOG




A Hot Springs Village resident was attacked and mauled by a neighbor's dog early Thursday morning while taking a morning walk.  The 75-year-old victim, JOAN KAPPEN, was taken to Mercy Hospital but later died of injuries. It was reported that the owner was not home at the time and another woman was taking care of the dog.  That woman was also injured during the attack. Two different comments to this story report that the woman who owns this BULLMASTIFF   is the same woman that owned a similar dog that killed a boy earlier this year. A reporter on the video states that the dog was let out early this morning to use the bathroom unsupervised and that's when the attack happened.

KNOXVILLE TN - A LAB MIX ??? NAMED "SIMBA" BIT A 2-YEAR-OLD GIRL ON THE CHEEK

UPDATE:  Police say that a  LAB MIX  ???  that bit a child on the cheek at Steeplechase Apartments on Central Avenue Pike will be euthanized after the quarantine is up. The dog's owner is the child's babysitter - Jetta Surrett.  She has surrendered the dog.  LINK


UPDATE:  THE DOG HAD BITTEN BEFORE


ORIGINAL STORY:  A male   BLACK AND WHITE MIXED LABRADOR??? bit a 2-year-old girl on the cheek Tuesday.  A police Department spokesman said charges are possible against the woman who owned the dog and the mother who insisted the dog be allowed to interact with the child. The toddler had been staying with her baby sitter, Jetta Surrett, 21, when the mother Kendra Lusby, 22, arrived to pick up her daughter. Surrett says that she told Lusby that the dog was not friendly to children, but the mother insisted the girl be allowed to play with the baby sitter's dog,  SIMBA,   which she had kept locked in a bedroom during the girl's stay........

THE MOTHER OPENED THE DOOR TO THE BEDROOM HERSELF TO ALLOW THE DOG OUT AND ALLOWED HER DAUGHTER TO GO NEAR THE DOG WHILE SHE SAT NEAR THEM.....AT WHICH POINT THE ANIMAL BIT THE GIRL IN THE CHEEK REMOVING A LARGE PORTION OF FLESH.

The case regarding Lusby's actions has been referred to the State Department of Children's Services for investigation and charges are possible pending  the conclusion of that investigation.  LINK
