(ANSA) June 17 - A woman who was mauled by her TWO AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIERS  died in hospital Friday.

The dogs attacked the woman, 76, in her yard in the Lombard town of Inverigo.

Neighbors alerted authorities, and Carabinieri police had to fire a shot into the air to scare the two dogs away long enough to rescue the woman, who had gone into cardiac arrest.

The dogs had toppled her to the ground and bitten one of her ears off. Police found it in the grass and handed it over to ambulance personnel.

The pensioner, who had lost a lot of blood, was choppered to Niguarda Hospital where she went into surgery and died shortly after.

Darwin Awards are so well deserved. Could have had 2 Lhasa Apsos, but pit bulls were the obvious choice. I've heard they're the most loyal, will lick you to death, and it's all in how they're raised.

I honestly don't believe that any 76-year-old woman could handle one pit bull, let alone two. I always wonder what goes through the minds of these nutters when they're being killed by their pit bulls? Oh, the foamers were right? Maybe DNA does have something to do with it? Wow, I'm stupid! I mean seriously, what were they thinking? Obviously, they didn't think about such things before they brought pit bulls home as pet dogs. I'm sure they thought things like, I'm going to prove everyone wrong! Pit bulls are amazing and get a bad rap. Pit bulls are just like normal dogs!

Nutter reactions in these Darwin attacks seem to vary.

There was a YT video up (now removed) from a 20-something girl telling how she'd said, "I love you so much, I understand how frustrated you feel, I still love you..." while her pit bull was trying to maul her to death. This kind of case is described here:

Then there's a case I know of where the woman knew perfectly well that pit bulls are killers, but she desperately wanted to be Fashion Queen. Desperately wanted to be able to puff herself up and glibly do the 'all-how-you-raise-em, I'm an expert because I own one' thing. So she went opinion shopping until she finally found a veterinarian who said 'yep, it's all how your raise 'em'. Supported by this single opinion, this woman went out and got herself a pit bull, got into breeding them, finally kept just one. That one killed her two-year-old while she was having a pee.

This nutter then decided to go out and warn people that ANY DOG will kill your child if you don't watch out. That way she can still enjoy the vanity trip pretence that her opinion-shopping doesn't mean she preferred being Smug Fashion Queen above protecting her child's life. She can also still profile herself as expert on ALL DOGS even though the only dogs she ever owned were pit-shits, one of which killed her own child.

I believe this type of nutter is best described here:

Given the mentality of people who choose this type of dog in the first place, I doubt that many of them have any normal thoughts as they're being mauled. Witness the many who survive the mauling, or whose relative (not themselves) got killed, who then continue to pimp for pits.

That phenomenon is best described here:
