in before all the libertarians say it’s not the dogs’ fault.
why are three pit bulls in an apartment
Umm, because people are stupid.
It’s the owner’s fault.For a lot of Pit Bull owners,the animals propensity for violence is the main reason to have them.Sick.
yeah to me if you have an apartment no dog
Never trust any dog too much with an infant.
Basically, it isn’t. It’s the fault of the owners of the dogs and the girl’s parents (if they are not the same). The dogs were behaving according to their nature. Anyone who would leave a small child and dogs unattended together is not bright.
Yeah, those Yorkshire Terriers are deadly.
Chet99 is that you?
1 pitbull : 1 9mm 115gr HP. Problem solved.
Baby sitting. :(
Dear me.. prayers for the spirit of this little one. I cannot even imagine what she went through... it makes me sick.
>>Never trust any dog too much with an infant.<<
Truth be told.
I don’t trust any dog that is bigger than I can pick up and throw if need be.
Bite scars are forever.
How about if you have a baby, no pit bulls. They had three. In an apartment! Stupidity kills. It really does.
This may not be the best picture for this thread.
Yeah anyone who owns pit bulls is probably fighting them for gambling purposes.
“This may not be the best picture for this thread”.
I didn’t notice it till you mentioned it. Eeek! However, it does show how precious little ones truly are and their innocence. Such a loss!

the three dogs were euthanized Friday night, Moscato said. They will then be sent to the state police lab for rabies tests, a standard procedure in dog bite cases.
News.Pit bulls kill toddler in West Haven

New Haven Register
WEST HAVEN An 18-month-old child was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven Hospital Friday night after being attacked by pit bulls in an apartment, police said.
The dogs have been euthanized and the incident is under investigation, according to Sgt. Angelo Moscato.
We wont have answers from autopsy for a couple days, but the child from description severely injured by the animal, Moscato said.
The toddler had been visiting the third-floor 127 Leete St. apartment, and its unclear if the tenants are friends or relatives of the child. Police said the tenants do own the three dogs.
During the visit, the dogs were put into another room, but somehow got out and found the child lying on the floor on a blanket in another room, Moscato said.
Moscato said its also unclear if the child was alone at the time that the dogs attacked and whether two or three of the dogs were involved. But police were told that after the attack, two dogs were seen standing near the child, who was bleeding, Moscato said. Those in the apartment then put the dogs in another room.
Police and paramedics were dispatched around 6:13 p.m. after receiving a call that a child had been bitten by a dog. When they arrived, the child was unconscious, and paramedics immediately took the toddler to Yale-New Haven Hospital, according to Moscato.
Typically, when a dog bites a person, its owner must decide if it should be quarantined or euthanized. Because of the severity of this case, the three dogs were euthanized Friday night, Moscato said. They will then be sent to the state police lab for rabies tests, a standard procedure in dog bite cases.
That is my pit bull training method as well.HOME 8 PIT BULL 0
sadly, that stupidity usually kills the innocents......
Its not the dogs fault.
Shoot pit bull owners.
It’s their fault.
What ever happened to Chet99? I have not heard from him in quite awhile.
Regardless of the breed, it seems the child was left unattended in a small apartment. Idiocy.
Why would a libertarian say it is not the dogs fault?
We had a pit-bull mix years ago. He was a wonderful dog and good with everyone. He went on the construction jobsite everyday with my husband and would sleep under the truck. It was a sad day when we lost this dog... all of our friends and and family loved him. Loving dog and never mean. I think it had to do with the owners.
Banned? For what I wonder.
Banned? For what I wonder.
I don’t know.
Oops. Shoot the dogs; hang the owner.
Even small dogs can hurt a child. It’s just a good idea to always supervise when small children and dogs are together. I would never even consider letting a child near a pit bull or a Chow.
