TERRY, Miss., Feb. 12 (UPI) -- A 5-year-old girl was killed Friday in an attack by a neighborhood pit bull in Terry, Miss., her grandmother says.
Mable Bingham said the body of her granddaughter, Anataisa, was found lying in a ditch Friday after the attack by the dog, which the Hinds County Sheriff's Department took into custody, The Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger reported.
"It's so sad," Bingham said of the death of her granddaughter, whom she raised since birth.
Bingham said the girl was playing in the snow outside when the attack took place. Additional details of the attack were not released.
Looks like I have to come back with a 3rd hero pitbull story.... thanks for your inspiration to counter the whole mentality of,”if it bleeds it reads!!”
Another tragedy because of an untrained and unrestrained DOG. You’d think people would learn.
The owner of the dog should be held responsible for this.
Pits are great dogs.
If something like this happened to one of my children, that dog would have some dead owners. After finishing up with the owners, I’d find some ‘creative’ way of disposing of the animal.
Even if the media only reports the bad of the dog... it is the owners that should be held accountable... it is a shame that there are those that latch onto tragedy to push an agenda... such a liberal way of thought.
Kill the dog. Imprison the owner.
God rest that little girl’s soul.
Amazing how little empathy pit bull owners have for children who are mutilated by their “pets”.
I’ve seen more people attacked by the Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd breed than pitbulls, but pitbulls are BAAAAD.
less then a week ago a pit bull puppy chewed a baby’s toes off. Such a caring, gentle, heroic breed. No different than any other dog really. I’m sure this girl was teasing it or else the owners were just really bad.
Any dog running loose out of its yard should be shot.
Chet, please don’t give up.
Hell of a way to die,,,
I guess one is runnin’ loose around here,,,
Saw a sign on the way “Lost Pit-Bull,,,Friendly”,,,
“Kill the dog. Imprison the owner.”
Anyone that owns one of these animals has to be a half-wit
to begin with.
Prosecute and lock up the owners, then maybe the idiots would think twice about having one.
Very sad. Prayers for the little girl and her grandmother.
It would be irresponsible to only report the good stories about a breed that has the highest probability of killing people.
