92% of dogs that kill are male and 94% are not neutered. It isn't the breed - it is the people whoRead More are too stupid to neuter their dogs and train them and treat them kindly.

There's not doubt that the owners are ultimately responsible for their VICIOUS dogs. Even supposedlyRead More gentle dogs can turn vicious under the right circumstances; they may be gentle with their human family but become aggressive and combative with strangers. Many people have dogs to ward off burglars and other criminals. As an aside, I suppose it is possible for VICIOUS dogs to have VISCOUS bodily fluids, think mucous and saliva.

This is a bad breed. The woman was in her own back yard and the dog broke through a fence. Put theRead More dog down and put the owner in jail.

Thanks for the weather report. It seems to be more detailed, and more accurate, than the ones I getRead More on line.

Janis I would like to see some facts re: the treatment of horses in Central Park. I have a hardRead More time conceiving that they are not treated well when they are an important money-making tourist attraction.

Women should be lining up to vote Republican this election. If it weren't enough that GOPRead More scientists already altered female biology so they can't get pregnant during rape... now they've eliminated the risk of death during childbirth. That is some seriously impressive work they are doing.... LOL Speaker John Boehner announced who will chair the major House committees they're all white men. There isn't a single woman or minority included in the mix of 19 committee chairs -- a stark reality for a party desperate to appeal to women and minorities after both groups overwhelmingly rejected Republicans in the last presidential election A note to the GOP, you know your party is in trouble when on the day after the election your are asked ""Did the CRAZY legitimate rape guy win ?? .. And you are forced to reply ""which one?" LOL

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.

Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.

Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.

Boss Hog I see you changed your subtitle from "telling the whole story" to "helpingRead More people make decisions". Was that because I pointed out the FACT that you were NOT sharing the "whole story"? Let me point out something else, your NOT helping anyone with you simpleton approach to a Blog. I get it, you don't like certain dogs. It's your choice and your opinion. Your NON blog is just a collection of stories written by someone else and pictures that have nothing to do with the stories you recycle. It it exactly this biased reporting of a collection of horror stories about people being attacked that creates a fear of these dogs. Not all bully breed dogs are evil and bad. I feel bad for the people injured. It's terrible. But you neglect to tell the OTHERSIDE of the bully breeds. I personally know many pitbull type dogs that do good things but unfortunately we live in a drama addicted society so happy stories don't sell. you are in no way helping anyone. Try actually writing more than five bullet points about a terrible story. It would be nice to see some real discussion. It's unfortunate that many people hate these dogs based solely on the news instead of based on personal experience. I used to be that person until I actually met several pitbull dogs.

Hi Maya- I hopped back on this thread for one purpose- you and others on this thread have madeRead More sincere, intelligent comments. But you are ignoring the cardinal rule of the internet: Don't Feed the Trolls. Boss Hogg is a troll. His biased presentation of one sided material, "culled" (pun intended) from a broad, unrelated array of news sources, is classic trolling. Remember: Trolling is not just for the comments! The whole purpose of a blog can be to troll for outrage, and pageviews, as seems to be the case here.

You people all should get a life. By definition none of you who speak out against pit bulls haveRead More any first hand experience with pit bulls let alone owned, or taken care of one. My pit mix is the best, sweetest dog ever. And he was the eighth of seven prior fosters - some good, others great. I know there are bad dogs out there, and pits like any larger dog are powerful. So when they're bad, they're dangerous - but there's nothing unique to the breed that makes them so. By the way, my cocker spaniel/beagle mix is crazy and dangerous.

He espouses a point of view distorted through the lens of a Liberalism he believes in deeply... However, if the discussion is an examination of why there is an over-population of African-Americans in our prisons, then the discussion of family values must be central to the solution." ___________________________________________________ I love it when people do not even bother to read the blog before commenting.
