    Another Pit Bull Attack

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...s.b6e14b5.html


    ABILENE, Texas -- A 7-year-old boy died after he was attacked by pit bulls while playing outside near his rural home, authorities said.
    A driver saw Tanner Joshua Monk of Breckenridge lying next to a road near Hubbard Lake on Sunday with two pit bulls nearby and stopped to check on the child, Stephens County Sheriff Jim Reeves said. When she left her car, the dogs became aggressive and she called 911, he said.

    LOLOL!! I think that certain breeds can be more dangerous and as such owners should have to meet certain criteria and safety guidelines in order to own them.

    That would take care of a lot of this, but hell we can't even get something like that inacted before the idiots have kids, what chance do we have of stopping them getting dogs?

    Historically its easier to protect pets..
    For example the first child abuse laws were enacted in NY based on Animal protection laws already in place.

    Nice huh?

    Yeah, but you can stomp your dog to death and still only get charged with a misdemeanor.

    If I posted every pit bull attack on this forum that I hear about in the news there wouldn't be any other threads getting my attention. What will it take for people to quit this breed and let it die out

    I agree...I stopped posting every pit bull attack around our area because it is met with the same response here each time. It is the owners yada yada yada.

    Doesn't stop the dogs from attacking and killing the innocents tho...does it? I can't recall the last time I heard of non-pit bulls killing or disfiguring someone in my area, but of course...the news supposedly doesn't report those some will say. (In our area, the news reports them all if it involves a person being attacked.)

    It is the owners!! We cannot hold an animal responsible for its actions. The owners being humans and of supposed higher intellect are the ones who should ensure these dogs are not permitted to run loose or harm people.

    Yet every person who owns a pit bull claims their dog would never attack.

    Owners AND breeders, imo...backyard breeders in particular.

    Stomping on puppies' feet when they are at a common food bowl is NOT the way to raise a happy stable dog.

    Responsible breeders cull the litter of any aggressive pups in their infancy.

    I'm sure this subject has been addressed enough times on these forums with proper citations/sourcing.

    I'm opposed to breed-specific laws for the many reasons which are accessible via the net.

    (With respect and sympathy to all victims/survivors.)

    Let's just say...I will never trust a pit. In order for the owner of the pits that got out of his yard across from my mom's to keep them in his...he had to install two fences. One fence he had to dig down into the ground a few feet so they could not dig out. The second fence is well over six feet tall. HE knows how dangerous his animals are and finally took appropriate measures to stop them. If it had not been for her next door neighbor who happened to be outside and "knew" the dogs...there is no telling what could have happened to my mom. Thank God she didn't have one of her 3 adorable dogs with her at the time!

    I would vote yes for a ban measure in the city absolutely!

    I understand your point, based on your personal experience, and therefore respect your POV.

    What is a "pit"? Is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier a "pit" in your thinking? Amstaff, UKC pit bull too?

    Do you trust German Shepherds or Rotties...how about Dobermans?

    In a perfect world that perhaps you and I would design together, all dogs would be properly contained in their yards/homes according to local leash laws, and the persons responsible for their care would take that responsibiity most seriously (and all that means).

    Furthermore, if a dog is a digger, I would hope its keeper would know to install proper fencing and foundations...even if that dog is a little poopsie type! ;-)

    A six-foot fence in good condition and of appropriate material is standard for larger or jumping breeds.

    In the perfect world I envision, people would stop breeding dogs just for the fun of it, for the profit, or to teach their kids about deliveries! Truly, I've heard all such reasons numerous times and they make no sense whatsoever.

    The responsible breeders I know have their pups placed even before conception. They are in it not for the money, but to prosper the breed. In fact, it costs money to engage in this sort of program.

    I cried when they put-down some tiny ones for being too snappy...but I respected their decisions because these people are knowledgeable and want their breed of choice to be all the dog it should be!

    So for me, most assuredly, NO breed-specific laws...it's still like most problems here on this imperfect earth, a problem created by people.

    I am NOT going there with you or anyone else. Not playing the "what is a pit bull" game because it is ridiculous, imo. To John Q. Public: Keep your pits...but keep them muzzled, away from the public, and pray they don't attack your children or grands someday. If they do...it is your own fault and you should be criminally charged!

    Wow. You have no idea what type of dogs I share my life with, if any at all.

    I hope you don't edit your post...it stands on its own.

    I wish you well, despite all that venom directed at me.

    SS, do you have restrictions in the USA on these dangerous breed of dogs? Over here we have stopped importing them and any person that owns one has to have them desexed. Our Goverment says "They are killing machines on a leash." Have to say...I agree.
