LITTLE ROCK AR - 4 LARGE PIT BULLS INVADED REAN JAFFE'S YARD AND ATTACKED HER SMALLER DOG THAT WAS TIED UP OUTSIDE - NOW SHE CAN'T AFFORD "CALLIE'S" VET BILLS !!!



With eyes full of pain and paws that can barely move.

Police say A PACK OF PIT BULLS  viciously attacked a one-year-old dog Friday on Kimball and 7th Street in Little Rock.

The owner ReAn Jaffe says she's praying to God Callie survives.

"There are no words to actually see something that you love and so helpless. I mean she was tied up, she's small. There's nothing that she could've done," says Jaffe.

Jaffe says she was eating breakfast when she heard screams.

"These were huge pit bulls. His head was as big as mine," she says.

Jaffe says Callie was on a chain to the house when the attack happened. Animal Control caught FOUR PIT BULLS  they say were involved.

"Nobody can touch the dogs and I have a hold on the dogs," says Director of Little Rock Animal Services Tracy Roark.

There is an investigation to find out what happened on Kimball Street
.
"When they get in that pack mentality, we worry about them attacking another dog," says Roark.

While Jaffe's best friend recovers from what she calls a nightmare, she prays Callie survives.
"It was like seeing some wild animal show," she says.
             
                                                  !!! ??? !!!

JAFFE SAYS SHE'S HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME PAYING THE MEDICAL BILLS.  THE CITY HAS OFFERED TO COVER THE COSTS BUT JAFFE WOULD HAVE TO SURRENDER THE DOG.

A COMMENT TO THIS ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

KaD •
In a 2012 study Pit bulls ALONE inflicted
99% of the total FATAL attacks on other animals (43,000); 96% of the
fatal attacks on other dogs (11,520); 95% of the fatal attacks on
livestock (5,700) and on small mammals and poultry (16,150); and 94% of
the fatal attacks on cats (11,280).

Ironically,
now that dog fighting is outlawed (supposedly for humane reasons) the
number of animals harmed by put bulls every year is at an all time high,
which begs the question: what is the point of outlawing dog fighting
while allowing these fighting dogs to proliferate?

So we now have this oversupply of "working dogs" whose "work" is now
considered a crime, so long as it occurs in a formal setting. If 2
willing pit bulls are allowed to square off in the ring, it's a crime.
But if a pit bull "goes to work" on an unwilling animal, tearing the
victim apart, it's not a crime. How is that in any way humane? There is no need for pit bulls. http://17barks.blogspot.com/20...

KaD ROCKS!

I've always wondered, if "dog fighting" is a felony, why is it when pit bulls fight normal dogs, it's not a dog fight? It's exactly as KaD describes. It's only if it's in a dog fighting ring (formal setting), with bets, and stats, and winners and losers, is it a felony.

When a pit bull attacks another dog, what exactly is it doing? In my mind, it's a dog fight. The "new" animal controls' definition is dog aggression. Dog aggression is perfectly acceptable if it's a first time offence. Just like food aggression, mailman aggression, children aggression, grandma aggression, infant aggression, cat aggression, etc.. It's all okay in the pit bull proliferation movement. Things that were not considered acceptable have suddenly become normal.

Thank you pit bull advocates! Pit bulls should have become illegal when dog fighting became a felony. Instead, we've got shelters filled with unwanted pit bulls, backyard breeders pumping out litters, no-kill rescues going off the rails misidentifying pit bulls to get them adopted (and people killed), and a new educational animal control system that slaps "irresponsible pit bull owners" on the wrist when something bad happens (i.e., pit bull going pit).
