UNIVERSITY CITY, ST. LOUIS COUNTY MO - A RESIDENT IS CONCERNED THAT A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL RUNS LOOSE AND HAS ATTACKED MANY PEOPLE INCLUDING HIM AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE ABOUT IT

UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A University City resident is complaining of a PIT BULL  he says is dangerous.
In a video sent to News 4, a pit bull is seen running out the front door.
Its owner tries to come after the dog, but is thrown to the ground as he tries to hold the dog back.

Gerry Clarke lives across the street, and says after the pit bull got out - it came across the street and tried to attack his dog.
“I jumped between the pit bull, grabbed the dog with one hand and couldn't get in the door. That’s when I had the confrontation with the pit bull,” said Clarke.
Clarke said he was bitten, not badly hurt, but very shaken up.
“I was in fear of my life at that point,” said Clarke.
But the couple that takes care of the pit bull say they find Clarke’s claim hard to believe.
They take care of the pit bull on behalf of its owner, who doesn't live in the house.
"It's not like anybody let him out or he wasn't on the leash. He was actually in the house. And he just got out,” said a woman named Jetta.
Several other neighbors said they are unhappy the dog is living there. They agreed with Clarke, who says he wants the dog gone.

"Dog's gotta go,” said Clarke. “We've got small children in this area. We have older people in this area. The dog needs to go.”

Go get your concealed weapon permit and be ready to protect yourself and your neighbors! If I had a dog like that living by me I would absolutely be prepared everyday if it attacks.
Information is key when it comes to dangerous dog breeds. We anti bully lobbyists have the facts, victims have their experience and stories that need to be shared. Then there is the pro bully dog lobby with their lies and opinions.
So which of us has the bigger mouth???

It seems that pit bulls have civil liberties. In reality, the rest of us are having our civil liberties infringed upon every single day.

“…the dog still hasn't been taken away and that it's back with its owner.”
This is the part that always gets me. What the hell are people thinking when they send a dog home after an attack like this? That it’s going to go to its room and do some hard thinking about how it behaved?

Roaming pits are the main reason I got my ccp.

Not to mention the owners! Does it sound like they care about anything?!?! These municipalities NEED to be sued, then maybe they'll start enforcing the laws!
