MONROE WI - 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED A SHIH TZU/BICHON FRISE MIX AS IT WAS BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER ON A LEASH - THE LITTLE DOG DIED FROM ITS INJURIES


UPDATE:  http://www.wkow.com/story/29813978/2015/08/18/attacking-pit-bulls-involved-in-two-past-cases

The dog’s owner, Jeff Buehler, told News 3 that his wife was walking their bichon frise-shih tzu mix at about 7 a.m. when the dog was attacked on Seventh Street. The dog was taken to a veterinarian where it died.
Police Chief Fred Kelley said he's investigating. He said it looks like the owner of the bichon did nothing wrong, and the owner of the PIT BULLS  could be facing citations or charges.
Police said the smaller dog weighed about 18 pounds and the pit bulls weighed about 90 pounds each.


Police said that, according to records, in August 2013, the same pit bulls attacked another dog off their property, causing non-fatal injuries.  At that time, the owner of the dogs was cited for allowing the dogs to run at large.
Monday's attack is more severe, so legal action is likely, according to police.
The owners could be cited for allowing the dogs to be at large, or could include a referral to criminal court for allowing the dogs to injure another dog while off of their property, which could lead to an order for the destruction of the dogs.

Please order the destruction of the pit bulls! SERIOUSLY!

The first time the pit bulls attacked, or any pit bull for that matter, the pit bulls should be put down. I don't know who thinks pit bulls will not attack again? By not putting the pit bulls down, they inevitably called for the destruction of an innocent little dog that never harmed anyone. So what exactly did Animal Control control?

Oh, and I just read the article. It states that the pit bulls were involved in two prior attacks. Their first foray into attacking another dog ended in the attack being averted. The nutter only got a warning that time.

BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION IS THE ANSWER!

Check out this dumbass comment from the article

Doug, pit bulls were not bread for fighting. Originally they were known as the nanny breed as they used to watch over children. People made them fight, so yes it is the owner's fault."

Melissa, please stay in high school. Forever.
