    Yet another Pitbull attack

    There could be a whole forum about attacks from these vicious dogs.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    After a vicious pit bull attack Thursday evening, Alachua County Sheriff Deputies have decided not to charge the owners of the dog.

    Deputies say Ryan Tyler was attacked by "Tango" upon entering a friends apartment who is watching the K-9 because the dogs owners are out of town. Tyler is friends with the owners and was familiar with the dog.

    Thursday evening Tyler walked into an apartment at The Exchange in Southwest Gainesville when the dog latched on to his arm and would not let go.

    Witnesses used knives and a machete to try an get the dog to release it's grip. In the process "Tango" turned on another man Ryan Troup who was bringing clean towels to wrap around Tylers wounds.

    how many more is it going to take before something is done?
    or, is it just that no one cares?

    It should be illegal to even own a pit bull. They are the most unpredictable dogs in existence. I know there are other dogs out there that seem to be pretty unpredictable, but the pit bull is almost unstable. Scary.
