Burnett and Todd had to bury their dog, Sam-Sam, after a run-in with a neighbors dog Source: (KWES)


Odessa Police arrested Doyle Burnett on Thursday after being called on a complaint of him stabbing a dog. Now, a few days later, Burnett wants his side of the story told. After he was arrested, his friend Tammy Todd began to notice a trend, half the story was missing. 
"They were making him look like he was some crazy person," Todd said. "They didn't know, no body knew but no body bothered telling her neither, you know."
Now out of jail and trying to find the money to pay for the legal process, Burnett is also trying to clear up his side of the story. The side he says begins when he and Todd had to bury their dog because of what Burnett says is "a bad owner."
Burnett says that recently, his dog "Sam-Sam" was attacked by his neighbors PIT BULL, the same one he stabbed on Thursday night. Then, on Thursday, after Burnett's neighbor brought the dog that has attacked his and multiple other dogs back to the neighborhood, Burnett took it into his own hands.
"I told him to get rid of that dog. I'm not letting that dog kill another one of my dogs," Burnett said. "Police, no body did nothing about it so I went over there and took care of it. I said I'm not having it, that dog's not going to kill another one of my dogs. I'll protect and defend my dogs just like I will my family. My dogs are pets, they're not pit bulls. He leaves that dog on a chain, they don't play with it, they don't do nothing. He's just a bad owner, he don't deserve to have a dog."
When asked if he regrets the decision to go across the street that night, he says he wishes he didn't have to, but he doesn't regret protecting his family. 
"This is America, you have the right to defend yours," said Burnett. "And that's what I was doing, defending mine. That's the third time that dog has beat up and killed my dogs. I said if ain't no body going to do nothing about it, I'll do it myself."
News West 9 was in the neighborhood for a few hours and attempted knocking on the door of the pit bulls owner but were unable to reach him.

Good for him! I support his decision 100%. If more people "took care" of Pitbull problems, we wouldn't have Pitbull problems in my opinion.

I'm totally ready to stab the pit bull that lives across the street from me. It's lived there for a year now. On day one, it came to my house for a visit. I called the police. I've called animal control numerous times since then. The pit bull always, somehow gets out. No one in the house notices. My AC is all about education now. No repercussions for the irresponsible pit bull owner.

I have a machete ready to go, hanging in my garage. I carry pepper spray. I carry a knife. If that thing goes for me or my dog, it's dead. If it goes for anyone else, or their dog, it's dead.

I'm so with this guy. It's the fucking wild wild west out there. I never in one million years would have guessed that I would have to defend myself from a deadly animal. I have coyotes that live in a field behind my house. They do not scare me in the way the pit bull does.

Pit bulls have the same rights as humans. Can't do nothing until something happens. When something happens, one free pass. Due process is declaring an already dangerous breed, dangerous. There's no such thing as prevention. There's no such thing as Breed Specific Legislation. There's no such thing as life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness. That's been given to the pit bulls.

Yup Pitbull rights... But not til they mail or kill something do the crazies really rally around them. It's so pathetic!

I'd like to see what the dog that Chevy attacked looked like? How much was the vet bill? Just how much was that family victimized by the Nutters? These heartless, arrogant assholes...and besides that is one UGLY MUTANT!!!

I know what Anonymous means. Coyotes are regular visitors in my urban neighbourhood. They don't worry me in the least, but the local pits and their clueless owners are a serious concern to me. I never dreamed I would someday find myself agreeing with someone who stabbed a dog to death that wasn't in the act of attacking him, but I completely understand this guy. People and other animals are being offered up as sacrificial victims on the altar of pit bull rights, and it's sick. I was very pleased to see that Ottawa police didn't hesitate to end both dogs after Saturday's attack in Orleans. We need more of that.

I wish Mr. Burnett would have waited til the pit came onto his property. The way I read this, he went onto the nutter's property. And the article did not say whether the pit died or not. It just said the owner was going to take it to a vet. He let his emotions take over and did not make a plan as so many of us would do! He will probably have to pay fines. The writer of the article doesn't even tell us if the nutter had to pay fines for her frankenmauler running loose and killing another animal! He probably got so wound up looking at the pit chained up and not knowing when it is going to get loose again but knowing that it will get loose again and try to kill the first thing it sees!

Here's another one that just came in from Memphis....

The nutter let his pit outside in the front yard to use bathroom (I see no fence around this yard and he says he heard her yelp from inside his house so he left the pit outside without a leash) He says he saw a man walking away with a baseball bat in hand and his pit was left paralyzed. We get the nutters side of the story. How long was that pit left outside alone? Where are the witnesses to tell us what really happened while it was outside at night? It really is the wild, wild west out there. Get prepared as in "Military Training"!

I can totally sympathize with this man. I've decided though, after reading similar stories over the years, it's much better to wait for the pit to cross your property line before killing it. And I don't know if I'd bother getting the "authorities" involved beforehand either, they're worthless when it comes to actually controlling animals...
