Pit Bull Story 3

Tests on a pit bulldog shot to death by Four Oaks Police after it bit three people at the Travelers Inn Motel on August 27th are inconclusive for rabies.

Johnston County Animal Services Director Ernie Wilkinson told WTSB News on Tuesday the dog was taken to the NC Public Health Laboratory in Raleigh where tests could not determine if the animal did or didn’t have rabies.  It will now be up to medical officials and the victims whether they have to receive a series of three shots each for rabies.

Four Oaks Police say they are still investigating the attack that injured three people, one seriously. 
Police Chief S.A. Anderson said they have spoken to the owner of the animal but have not decided if any criminal charges will be filed.

Pibble lovers cry that it's not the dog at fault, but Irresponsible Ownership that causes Maulings.

It's time we start demanding that Law Enforcement Hold The Owners Responsible, by filing charges in EACH and Every dog mauling.

That photo is worse than the first one I saw. I feel like I'm going to faint. That is HORRIFIC!

If irresponsible ownership causes this horrendous attack, then pit bulls should not be owned! COME ON ALREADY! COMMON SENSE!
