Pit bull kills girl, 5, in Mississippi
UPI ^

Posted on 02/12/2010 9:04:23 PM PST by Chet 99

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!!”

Such garbage.

Another tragedy because of an untrained and unrestrained DOG. You’d think people would learn.

"Pit bull kills girl, 5, in Mississippi.

The owner of the dog should be held responsible for this.

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.

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.

“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.

Ping!

"Mable Bingham said the body of her granddaughter, Anataisa, was found lying in a ditch Friday after the attack by the dog,..."

And of course pit bull worshippers are showing their sympathy for the animal that murdered the little girl. Keep it up, Chet! Every incident is most honestly crime news that needs to be known!

It would be irresponsible to only report the good stories about a breed that has the highest probability of killing people.

“It would be irresponsible to only report the good stories about a breed that has the highest probability of killing people.”

And what breed is that? labs, dobermans, akita, mastiffs, terriers, boxers, dogos, rottweilers, great danes, pugs or chiuauas?

The obsession with posting the pit bull stories has to be personal tragedy. There are other breeds that have killed and maimed innocent children. Pit Bulls are the dog de jour with gangsters and other types who use these dogs to enhance their machismo. German Shepherds were feared as much when I was a kid. Same type of person would have this type of dog and make sure it was aggressive.

Pit bulls don’t get trained for work as security/working dogs. They’re not trainable or trustworthy; too much bad craziness in them.

"It would be irresponsible to only report the good stories about a breed that has the highest probability of killing people."

Owning an aggressive dog requires responsibility of the owner to control the animal. I have owned two Dobermans. They were never out of my control for even a second.

Exactly. Murderer! There's a reason that thugs choose pit bulls as fashion accessories to hang chains and padlocks on. They have a reputation for being inclined toward violence. Stereotypes are usually rooted in truth, no? Of course there are some great, friendly pit bulls. There are also some great Muslims. And some great congressmen. But I think the difference is between being bitten by some dogs, and being ATTACKED by a pitbull.

I know exactly what you mean. I mean, pitbulls are natural retrievers just like labs and golden retreivers. Nothing genetic about that. They'll point just like a german shorthair pointer too and they even have that natural born tendency inherent to all dogs to herd sheep and cattle.

Breed Specific Legislation that manynhere pray for will not stop with Pits...like any other nanny statism (see ciggies) it will mushroom and entail any working class aggressive dog breed period in short order

many of the same municipalities and counties that ban pits also ban Rotts, all Mastiff breeds, Dogos ...maybe Alsatians and Dobies too...not sure on that but what they would like is to ban all Mollasers and their mixed descendants which is ironic considering Pits have a high terrier DNA

any time a child is killed by a pet it is tragic..very...I never leave my bully even though bully is only 5 months with my 3 year old but unless we are all to own just Labs or less then folks should be careful what they wish for

I have owned guard breeds all my life and I'm older... they have only bitten folks who had it coming because I tended to them.

I wonder how many here think some breeds of humans are more likely to kill, rape or rob ya?...just sayin...

I never said you should not own a guard dog. I just said you need to be in control of it. My dog barks. I decide when it is time to bite. A good arrangement if you ask me.

Not surprising, since Belgian Malinois and German Shepherds are the most common breeds used by law enforcement. They have a lot of occasion to attack . . . criminals. Sure, they can be dangerous as pets, but they're also pretty uncommon as pets, and even more uncommon as pets of totally irresponsible people. Pit bulls are the breed of choice for people who think it's really cool to have an aggressive dog.

True,,,that’s part of the problem,,,Idiots,,,

The other part of the problem is the breed and what they do

when they get loose,,,

Other breeds have to be trained to go for the face area,,,

The US Army K-9 Corps had to “Foo Foo” the dogs to get

them to attack the face/head area,,,

I saw this myself in ‘67 on Hon Tre Island,RVN,,,

It seems that a pit will always go for the face...

It’s not just temperament, but also jaw strength. A poodle and a pit bull could both snap and attack someone and clamp down with all their might, but the results wouldn’t be anywhere near the same.

Interesting. I wonder if that's been confirmed by any reaonsably systematic research. Different dog breeds definitely have very different instincts, and this could be an example. When I was a kid, my family would go out to a cabin we had in the woods, and had to drive by a farm to get there. There was some sort of herding dog that lived on the farm, and it *always* tried to herd our car. It just instinctively ran out in front of anything that was moving in a linear direction. Fortunately for the dog, it was a narrow buumpy gravel road, so no speeding going on there.

My earlier point. The dog should have been in control of the owner. How much do you want to bet this dog was a fighter trained by his owner to do as much.

The only thing better than one Lab is two Labs.

The only problem I ever had was a child getting a big thump from a tail. And the kid loved it.

Why ANYONE would own a pitbull or rottie is beyond me. I've always had dogs. Pits and rotts are ticking timebombs. There's a story nearly every day how they tore into someone.

My Mom was bitten by a Lab. Still has nerve impairment in her left hand.

The dog belonged to my paternal grandfather. For whatever reason, the dog was allowed to live to it's natural end.
