3 pit-bull attacks cause death, mayhem
By KITTY CAPARELLA & STEPHANIE FARR Philadelphia Daily News firstname.lastname@example.org 215-854-5880
THE BLOODY paw prints were still in the snow, and a bunch of white gauze lay nearby. The pinkish snow was packed down where two pit bulls had attacked a 10-year-old boy - severely injuring his right arm and puncturing his neck, left arm and back with their teeth shortly after 11 a.m. yesterday.
The child had been walking with two boys who had both dogs on leashes. The dogs - one brown and the other white with brown spots - began fighting each other, then turned on the 10-year-old, said Capt. Ben Naish, police spokesman.
It was the third vicious pit-bull attack in Philadelphia in three days.
On Friday, a victim's wrist was nearly severed. On Saturday, a woman was mauled to death. And last night, doctors were trying to save a little boy's arm. All three attacks involved dogs known to the victims.

Blame the puppy-mills for more of these damned things on the street,,,
Gunna be a bloody year...
With so many accidental discharges, you’d think they’d all be recalled and recycled (e.g., made into fertilizer). ;-)
Ya’ beat me to the draw!,,,;0)
I really doubt the people in that place would want a
Too many thugs...
The ones that the local AC gets all go to the rendering
I guess they’re good for something...
Can we ship all Pit Bulls to South Korea...PB Stew.
People do not take the time to see if a certain breed will fit their lifestyle. If they did & if they bought less on the spur of the moment we would have less unwanted dogs. I don't care for pits myself. I've bred Akita too & I don't trust them that much. If people would realize working dogs are happy working & not sitting around in a small apartment or house & be able to do their job we would have more happy dogs. But no, people need the dog of the moment & don't care it doesn't fit into their lifestyle and they are too selfish to get up & do some work with the dog.
I blame people more then I do dogs for what the people do to these dogs. They don't check to see if it is inbred. They buy the cheapest dog & then they don't take care of it. They don't educate themselves on the breed & worse they let it around their children knowing it could be a time bomb. I never let children alone with any of my dogs & I have tiny Shih tzu now. Children can be mean to animals & in return the animals has enough & bites. Not every pit is bad. We are seeing more stories because the owners were stupid & lazy.
Colorful obfuscation aside, good pit bulls are the ones that have each received at least an ounce of the lead beauty enhancement treatment.
That’s a nice weapon! I see that you have one of those old man sights on it. ;-)
But maybe that beats spending so much on cases of loads just pointed and launched at targets, eh? Mr. Slim Wallet here says, “ouch!”
Do you hate all dogs?
3-year-old fatally mauled by dog [Pit bull]
The biggest problem we have at the animal shelter is with pit bulls. Owners don’t spay and neuter their animals and don’t keep them restrained on their property. Many of our unwanted dogs have pit bull in them. In addition, they are often owned by meth or pot dealers to protect their property.
Good post and from someone who worked in the dog catcher world, or Animal control as it is called now a days.
As a dog person it really breaks my heart to see dogs on chains.
I would bite you too if you had me tethered to a short chain all day.
As a single for life person dogs have always been my constant companions.
On the rare occassion I have to be out of town I hire a dog sitter (same dog sitter for years now) to keep them company.
Use to take the dogs with but as I am aging (now have a lap dog along with the Labs) my agility does not allow for Labs on the road.
Also we bought a diesal bus last year to get the quad son around in and all three dogs are fearful of the loud idle.
They dont want to go with Mama in the noisey rig. Nope no way.
They have an acre to keep them happy, funny thing is when we are home they are always under foot unless a deer/bunny wanders by.
Chet some imposters have been posting threads about pitbulls.
I told them to knock it off. /sarc
I like tervuren-burnese-malamutes and don’t have them neutered (mountain lions, bears, other predators, high, packed snow drifts outside right now and other work for the dogs to do), but they stay on the place (goat fence, extra high). If a dog gets off of a place around here, the ranchers will shoot it (like they do coyotes and wolv...er, those strange lookin’, wild German shepherds).
The aforementioned mutts are spoiled, BTW. They get all of their shots, frequent checkups at home and tend to prefer people food (scraps from slaughter/butcher and more vegetables than most dogs to alternate with the dog food). ...keeps ‘em muscular in the sub-zero here.
Shelters are full of mixed pits & pits. I wouldn't want to be working in one now. I still do animal rescue but it is mainly horses & cats & dogs. I have taken in macaws & snakes. When the snake tried to bite me in the eye he had to go.
With the economy so bad so many horses are being sold for slaughter & end up on a dinner plate in France. My 2 rescued horses cost me plenty but I never will get rid of them. I don't care if I sell all the gold I have. After what my ex race horse went through he deserves a life of being spoiled by my 10 yr old. And my Palomino will be great at western pleasure for my daughter. She plans to be a vet tech & a farrier. We home school so we get to be at the barn whenever the farrier comes & she helps him. The child has no fear & a way with horses. Thank the Lord, I won't be worrying about boys next year & I hope for years to come. She is in love with horses.
I have a pit puppy-mill rite next door,,,
They produced nine litters a year (last summer) all bred
by the same stud back to bitches that he fathered,,,
They had three litters and 3 bitches IN THE HOUSE most of
last year,,,35-40 dawgs at once,,,
Most of the thug’s stock died from worms? I guess,,,
We could smell the dead,,,
The thug went to jail for dope for about 6 months so maybe
some just starved to death,,,
The stink is so bad in that house they had to have windows
open even when it got down to 14 degrees this winter,,,
I will only walk the yorkie out back now while armed because
we have been charged twice by pits that have gotten off
Kids downrange the first time and could not get a shot the
second because of darkness,,,
Ammonia seems to work well to keep them from charging the
I was at the store a few weeks back and came back to the
car to find a truck with a pit in it throwing itself against
the window trying to attack me,,,
Last fall I saw a young kid being chased into his house by
AC got that one the next day as I was told,,,
HarleyMama has a new shotgun just like the pic I posted
(without the sight),,,
Ain’t nothing else gunna come across that fence...
> . <...
Yes, just watch an hour of "Animal Cops" on "Animal Plant" to find out who is causing the problem with pit bull type dogs. It's the same people who cause most of the worlds problems.
Nope,,,No sight on this one,,,all slick,,,
Just $40.00 worth of flechetts to load it...;0)
From my work I was taught to curl up in a ball & cover my face & stay as still as you can. Dogs want the chase. So stay still. Sometimes they will get bored & go away. I wouldn't count on it though. And pray somebody comes with a gun. Here in NJ you can't really carry guns to protect yourself & mace doesn't work. So my little dogs stay in my stockade double fenced yard. We have a pit that gets loose & all the parents are upset. The owner is a dizzy woman who swears her Lily wouldn't hurt a fly. We keep a baseball bat by the front steps to beat it with if it wanders around Sassy, my daughter. The animal control comes out but by then the pit is back home. It is a time bomb ticking. I know one of the many kids here are going to get bitten and there is nothing we can do legally. We have to wait until a cop or a animal control officer sees her loose. Go figure!
Spent gobs on 00 buck at a little over 50 cents a load. They’re about 60 each if bought in small boxes instead of cases. ...reloaded Colt ammo—way cheaper if figured for a couple of years, even with the supplies, chronograph and handloading equipment figured in. Have to use 5W synthetic oil very lightly for bores and parts this time of year. Everything else freezes up.
I do volunteer work w/ a shelter & it’s heartbreaking. Basically, substitute a kid for a pitbull & the child will also turn out bad if raised by the wrong people.
Why are people in public housing allowed to have dogs????? They can’t afford them. Correct????? It baffles.
In the end the dogs are the victims of criminal thugs. The dogs did not ask to belong to ignorant, horrible people who shouldn’t even be allowed to own silverware!
Our shelter has strict adoption rules. It’s almost comical to watch some clueless thug come up & say, “Got any puppies?” Yes, we do- just not for you.
When my husband was in Miami 5 years ago they had a law in Dade county that absolutely banned pits & pit mixes. If animal control officers were given complete leeway to take every dog who was not spayed/neutered &/or didn’t have their shots & then there was a huge fee to pick up said dog-— I bet the problem would go down.
HIT THESE THUGS IN THE POCKET............. START MAKING LIFE COMPLETELY HORRIBLE & UNCOMFORTABLE FOR THESE SUBHUMANS.
I love animals & the whole situation of mangled people & tortured animals is beyond the beyond.

I truly feel sorry for ya’ll,,,
No way I could live there,,,
I was taught to shoot to kill anything that was/is a
threat to my life or others,,,
Louisiana is an open carry state,,,hip/car/hand,,,
Local AC finally came out and too 3 pits out of the yard
because the thugs were over the limit of 4 ,,,
I would go with a small ax to fend off anything,,,
A long sharp blade would would be my second choice,,,
You are correct about that “time-bomb”,,,
Hug Sassy for me,,,
Glad she is a “CowGal” type...;0)
Geez, what kind of a ghetto do you live in? That sounds scary.
Spent gobs on 00 buck at a little over 50 cents a load. Theyre about 60 each if bought in small boxes instead of cases
WOW,,,Mine cost a buck each!!!
I got ripped off!!!...;0)
Ain’t in no Ghetto here,,,
Thugs moved into a Section 8 house,,,
We’ve been round-n-round with HUD/cops/AC/city hall and all
they have done is take 3 of the pits out of their backyard
because of the limit of 4 ,,,
We’ll get through this one way or the other...;0)
Didn’t mean to insult your neighborhood. You just painted such an awful picture in my mind. Hopefully you can get some help from the proper authorities.
I understood that,,,;0),,,
The best I can do is to post the truth about this mess,,,
This was a happy place before this trash moved in,,,
Many people walked their little yap dawgs around here,,,
They all had a contest to see who could Pee the highest on
the pole out front,,,Tooo Funi!...;0)
I live with a very mean biker. He won’t mess around when it comes to Lily the pit if she comes at Sassy. He doesn’t care about what NJ has to say about things for the most part. If need be I have a flare gun. That is still legal here so far.....I can’t wait to get out of this crazy state!
The one with the biggest smile?
Great pics of ya’ll,,,
Dat’s a CowGal aw`rite!,,,
Got that “Cavalry” look in her eye,,,;0),,,
Is the good lookin’ young gent Mr.Pandy?,,,
Feed That Boy!,,,*<(:O),,,Looks Hongry!,,,LOL,,,
I bet he could defend ya’ll with a switch...;0)
This is pitbull.
And here's pitbull with biggest smile!
I actually thought they'd bite strangers until I had chance playing someone else pitt in the Malibu beach. They are very sociable and playful.
LOL,,,I see some gals at the feed store sometimes that
stop in for feed/etc. for their stock,,,
Most are barrel racers,,,
The one with the muddy,pink 4x4 was state champ,,,(Sue),,,
All have gun-racks across the back windows with a shotgun
and or a Winchester to protect their stock,,,
Sooner or later Sassy is gunna learn about the Quarter-Hoss!
Then,,,Ya’ll ain’t gunna catch her on no Iron-Hoss...;0)...
