the pathetic Mayor Deblasio of NYC should ban pit bulls instead of horse drawn carriages - no horseRead More in the city ever attacked anyone! But you see, in his case, liberalism is a mental disorder.

Not all Pitbulls attack, just like not all assault weapons are used to commit a crime. But whenRead More either goes bad, it's especially bad. Obviously there needs to be a limit on dogs that are CAPABLE of inflicting great harm IF they go bad.

I know a doctor who was FALSELY accused of sexual assault by Elizabeth Warren! It's too bad, he wasRead More the best Veterinarian in town.

I also do not own and never have owned a Pitt Bull. I have not because I just don't care for theirRead More looks I guess. Being a senior now I would also never own a Mastiff, saint Bernard, etc. Way to large for me to control now and yes they are way up there on the vicious list. Along with my huskies who I have never had a problem controlling. Well may be getting them to stop in the snow ;-}.

No problem with reasonable regulations that do not penalize an owner for merely owning a dog thatRead More has never done a thing.

Owners of any dog are totally responsible for the actions of their dog. This is why there are leashRead More laws. This elderly woman's life will never be the same. She deserves to be SAFE taking a walk in her neighborhood. Pit Bulls have massive jaws and have ripped off peoples faces. Sadly this is the fault of the owner. This dog that attacked the woman has to be put down. There is no way to rehabilitate a dog like this. The owner needs to do some serious jail time and be totally accountable for all medical expenses and treatments regarding this terrible crime. Apologies this poor woman and all of her family as well.

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.

I believe we are beginning to see the results of a continuing increase in prices on just aboutRead More everything, and a decrease in the wages of jobs that people are being forced to take. Salary raises cannot keep up with the ever-increasing tempo of price hikes on everything, and folks are falling more behind with less or nothing to spend. The economic health will have to rely more and more on the "haves" and less than the "have nots," so the wealthy better get crackin' and start spending their stockpiles to keep us out of a ditch.

The law is clear...in Chapter 140 sect 155 however, the process is long and even if you win...TheRead More person still may not pay however since it involved personal injury, Im sure a lot of lawyers would be interested.

Yes, lawyers will give you a free consult and much to think about. I'd call for an appointment.

Why is it when a person commits an act of violence people blame the weapon, the environment, theRead More ciminal's educational level, their upbringing, etc. but when a pit bull is violent it is the dog's fault?

I lived on base while in the U.S.N. for many years and dog attacks in general were very rare. TheRead More reason? Because you could get in big trouble if your dog bit someone, like loss of rank, fined, extra duty, or kicked out of the military. The military has banned Pit Bulls on bases because they have a bad track record in the civilian world and an insurance risk.
tribble April 11, 2014 at 05:12 pm
Paul, do you follow military news? Have you seen the new navy missiles and the new stealth warship?
anon April 11, 2014 at 05:28 pm
#Paul, you bring up a great point there - that there are hefty repercussions for any dog attacks andRead More it forces people to be responsible owners and actually handle their dogs properly. The same cannot be said with the general public. Sometimes the owners may get a fine, but some don't even bother registering, fixing, or getting rabies shots. The fines for that are very minimal. I think your answer poses a big question - shouldn't we have more in place that reprimands the owners? In some states, an owner that abuses or neglects a dog can still own a dog if they choose.
