FARGO ND - A PIT BULL "SOMEHOW' GOT LOOSE AND ENTERED SOMEONE ELSE'S APARTMENT AND ATTACKED A CHIHUAHUA AND WENT AFTER A MAN ...NUTTER HAS HIS PANTIES IN A WAD BECAUSE THE MAN DEFENDED HIMSELF AND HIS PROPERTY WITH A KNIFE!!!

No charges are expected to be filed in a dog fight-turned-stabbing.  WDAY first told you about this story Tuesday.  Cotton the chihuahua had a frightening week.  His owner tells WDAY he was attacked by a  PIT BULL  that got into their apartment.
When he started barking at the door, they checked the peephole, opened it a crack and then the neighbor's pit bull rushed in.
"The dog latched onto his neck, started shaking him, wouldn't let go. My only thought was to get him off. How? Then I grabbed the knife. It was just my instincts to protect my dog and my kids," said Cotton's owner, who didn't want to be named.
The pit bull has since died from the several stab wounds. Cotton ended up at the vet, as well, and is now on several medications.  His owner tells WDAY this wasn't the first incident between the two dogs.  He describes another incident of the pit bull attacking the chihuahua, but nothing to this extent.  He says that incident ended civilly and hopes even after this that things will stay that way.
"We do have to live here, and I don't want any confrontation," the owner said.
With concerns his six kids and other neighbors shouldn't have had to witness the gruesome attack on Cotton, he wants someone to be held accountable.
"That way my dog can get the justice he deserves. He was in his own home, wasn't bothering anybody. That shouldn't happen," he said.
He adds they didn't want things to end the way they did.
"It's sad for him to see his dog like that, but it's also sad for my kids to see their dog in the pain and agony he was in," said Cotton's owner.
Even though one dog is dead, and another hurt, Fargo Police say Cotton's owner won't be held criminally responsible for killing the dog.
WDAY did reach out to the pit bull's owner but haven't been able to get a hold of them.

Even though no charges were filed against anyone, Cotton's owner tells me he plans to challenge that decision, because the pit bull was running loose in the apartment.

When it's a pit bull in full-blown attack mode, one stab just ain't going to do it. You need lots of jabby stabbies.

It just blows my mind that the main concern within this article is whether the VICTIM, who was defending his life and that of his pet and children, will be charged. The ONLY concern should be that the home-invading, attacking pit bull be euthanized and the irresponsible, criminally negligent, idiot pit owner be brought up on charges and made to pay any vet or human medical bills that the dog caused.

Note to doggie owners everywhere:
If you do not or cannot control your pet, YOU are responsible for everything it does or anything that happens to it.

THAT should be the law.

I love the way you titled this Decatur!

It's kind of freaky when a pit bull shows up at your door to kill your dog. It's too bad that Cotton's owner could not see the demented pit bull through the peep hole.

When a pit bull is trying to kill a dog, it's either the harmless family pet dog, or the pit bull. I carry a knife for this very reason. I am not going to allow my dog to get killed by a pit bull, without trying to kill the pit bull myself.

Pit bull advocates have taken the fighting dog out of the pit, and put them in every neighborhood that does not have breed specific legislation. Pit bull advocates have turned civilized society into the Wild Wild West. Pit bulls should have become extinct when dog fighting became a felony. Instead, we have dog fights in apartments, dogs fights in elevators, dogs fights in Petsmart, dog fights in just about any circumstance you can think of.

Thank you pit bull advocates! Keep up the great work keeping dog fighting legal!
