Add "Startled" to the pit bull trigger list.

I think startled is a pretty good reaction to seeing a loose pit bull.

I love how the beast is getting tested for rabies. Yeah, blame rabies not the breed!

I'm hoping that with all the flooding in TX all these "responsible" pit owners will leave their dogs tied up outside. Is that bad?!
