MATTITUCK, LONG ISLAND NY - KAREN ALLAR LOST HER HUSBAND AND HER DAUGHTER SO SHE ADOPTED SWEET LITTLE "MUFFIN" FROM A SHELTER TO HELP HER COPE ... THEN 2 PIT BULLS CAME INTO HER YARD HUNTING FOR SOMETHING TO KILL!!!

An East End woman says her dog was attacked and killed by her neighbor's  TWO PIT BULLS  on her front lawn.
Karen Allar, of Mattituck, tells News 12 that she was outside with her grandson and her dog Muffin Sunday morning when two pit bulls that live in a home up the block came running down the street.
"They were face to face with me, growling, ready to attack," says Allar. "I don't want to be graphic about it, but I was covered in her blood."
The incident was caught on the family's home security camera, which shows the two dogs circling Muffin. Veterinarians say the dog died quickly in the attack.
Neighbors say the dogs have been a nuisance in the community. The town says it received nine calls of complaints over the past year, including excessive barking, running freely in the streets and altercations with dogs on leashes.
Police did not issue summonses because they say the owner had been making attempts to keep the dogs on his property.
"The owner had actually bought a shock collar for the dogs and they still disregarded it. [On] another occasion, he had built a new pen, but they found a way to get out of the pen and into the neighborhood," says Chief Martin Flatley, of the Southold Town Police.
The owner of the pit bulls, Jorge Torrento, did not answer the door when News 12 visited Tuesday. He is facing charges under the dangerous dog provisions of the state's Agriculture and Markets Law.
The dogs are now at the town animal shelter after Torrento turned over ownership to them. It was not immediately clear if they would be euthanized.
Allar says she got Muffin several years ago from a shelter following the death of her husband, which had followed the death of her daughter the year before.
"She didn't deserve to die like that. She was so loving," says Allar. "She rescued me. Now she's gone."

Pit bulls at large should be treated as a serious offense. I'm sick of irresponsible pit bull owners getting a slap on the wrist. Nothing gets done until a pet dies, or someone is killed. What is wrong with this picture? Oh, I know! Pit bull advocates do not want their unique dog breed singled out for the dangerous behaviors and do not want Breed Specific Legislation to keep everyone else safe.

I just read the comments on the story, and of course the "well socialized" pit bull fur mommies are on there defending their reprehensible breed. It is so easy to blame bad owners. It is so easy to claim that there are millions of pit bulls that do not kill. It is hard for me to look past all of the devastation pit bulls inflict, but fur mommies think if there is one good pit bull, then not all pit bulls are bad.

BIG WHIP!

Why can't we regulate pit bulls? If well socialized pit bulls are so great, fur mommies won't have to worry. Since the laws favor mauling pit bulls by giving them 9 times to try and kill something, fur mommies have the upper-hand and want to keep it that way. They all want to keep their maulers, and get away with it when Mr. Pit Bull Wiggle Butt Nanny Hero Dog finally does kill something.

Even if a pit bull kills another dog, there are many jurisdictions that do not recognize dog on dog aggression. It is perfectly okay for a pit bull to kill a pet dog, but never okay for pit bulls to be humanely euthanized. Pit bulls have been elevated to human status, and in some cases it seems that pit bulls are above even humans. I take that back, in many cases pit bulls are sacred.

I am truly sorry for the victim, Karen Allar. no matter how sad her story is, there will be more dogs, pets, children, livestock, and grown men killed by pit bulls. It is truly scary to think that an unsocialized pit bull is all it takes to lose your life, or your pet.
