Pit bull hanging on at hospital
baltimore sun ^

Posted on 05/29/2009 6:19:06 AM PDT by MAD-AS-HELL

According to a story in today's Sun by Brent Jones, Phoenix, is in stable condition at an unnamed hospital in Pennsylvania. Sounds like the next few days will be touch and go as she fights potential infections and other burn-related issues. In case anyone missed yesterday's stories, someone in Southwest Baltimore doused the 1-year-old pit bull puppy with gasoline and set her on fire. A police office saw her in flames and put the fire out with a sweater. There is a $1,000 reward being offered for information on who might have done that to the dog. Unleashed will try to keep you posted on Phoenix's condition and related news.

Don’t have to love pitbulls to be disgusted by this story.

I don’t care for Pit Bulls but it’s still a dog.

Do that to a dog and I believe it should be done to you.

I like all dogs better than I like most people.

That’s terrible! People wonder why I prefer the company of dogs over humans. I didn’t even make it through the article; am going to have to read it later to see if there was anywhere to donate.

I am no fan of pitbulls, I’ve never had to deal with them personally but their reputation is such I would never trust them or want my kids around them. That being said whoever did this needs to be arrested and taken for a time out from society for a nice long while.

Groups of people stood around watching it burn. A police officer rode by and smothered the poor thing with her sweatshirt.

It doesn't sound like they know who the owner of the dog is. This is horrible what was done to this dog, but if he doesn't have an owner, why put him through the pain and trials of recovery from his injuries? I guess someone will see this tragic story and adopt this dog. Meanwhile, in Loudoun, Virginia, they are euthanizing perfectly healthy pit bulls in the public shelters, because a Judge has upheld a law which makes it illegal to adopt them.

Many shelters and animal rescue groups are struggling for money and have more animals to care for than resources. Why use those resources rescuing this dog -- it would be better to put him to sleep and grab a healthy dog from Loudoun that is going to be put to sleep.

might not have had an owner. This breed of dog is so abused and over bred for malicious intent that there are tons of strays out there. Could hvae been a dog that showed no aggressive behavior and was deemed unqualified to fight by a scumbag and thus he let her free into the streets.

In addition:

Anyone who is so callous, cruel, and evil towards a dog would have no problem exhibiting this same behavior towards a person.

The “Don’t be a SNITCH.” so pervasive in some “communities” will ensure this dirtbag is never found out.

I have two white shepherds. If someone did this to my dogs I would set them on fire and then put the fire out with blasts from my 12 Ga. 870.

In that area of town, I’d say around %115 would be a more accurate guess. No sarcasm.

Quite a few polling places are without Republican judges in the Baltimore area during voting. Empty lots, dead people voting (of course), multiple votes, etc. aren’t even challenged in many cases.

Knowing the searing pain that even a minor burn causes - it is heartbreaking to think that someone would do this to any living creature. It is chilling to know that people like this live among us.

If it wasn’t Chet99 then it ws probably Star Traveler, after all, setting a dog on fire is no worse than seting a piece of sheet rock on fire, according to him.

But, then, so are pit bull owners.

You said — If it wasn’t Chet99 then it ws probably Star Traveler, after all, setting a dog on fire is no worse than seting a piece of sheet rock on fire, according to him.

Well, I wouldn’t say that for myself. I’ve got four little weenie dogs (not vicious or anything, but dogs nonetheless...). You would never find me doing anything like that...

But, I think what you’re referring to, is that I was saying that criminal sentences are out of whack, when someone can murder a person and be in jail for 7 - 10 years, and then another person get life in prison for killing a dog.

I pointed out that a dog (or any animal) is anything close to being worth anywhere the same as murdering a human being. That’s basically “devaluing” the murder of a human being to put a dog on that same level.

And also, I believe I was saying that I believed in killing animals since I belonged to “PETA” — which is for me “People for Eating Tasty Animals”...

And actually, in that light, I believe there are a lot of other people who likewise believe in killing animals, since I think there are a lot of “meat-eaters” around here... LOL...

Perhaps that’s what you’re talking about...

Hey, I am a Pit Bull owner.

My daughter and her active duty husband are also Pit Bull owners.

I doubt you, and most of the other Pit Bull haters here, have ever known an actual Pit Bull Dog.

I wonder if one of the pit bull haters will link this on a future thread about a pit bull attack?

I’m not a huge fan of pit bulls, but this is disgusting.

In regards to a dog being tortured and beaten to death with a hammer, Star Traveler:

“And, as for dogs — and cats or any animals — no, I wouldn’t count them any more than I would count beating a hole in the sheetrock at a house, or busting out the car windows or breaking up a piece of equipment as being equated to something on the level of a “person”...

If I was on a jury, and that’s what came before me, and I knew that pizza or a dog or whatever like that would lead to life in prison — that would generate a “not guilty” verdict from me... “if” they are going to maintain that kind of law...”

Setting fire to a dog, setting fire to sheetrock, no big deal.

It would take a real piece of work to do this to ANY animal.

Who ever would do this is dangerous to anyone around them, animal or human.

Well, my post says it pretty clearly like I said before, there’s no comparison of dogs and animals to people. They don’t even rank in the same ballpark.

You’ll note that I said — “... as being equated to something on the level of a “person”...”

And you’ll note that I said, in that other post about criminal sentences — that there was no way that someone would get *anything* like life in prison. That’s the stupidest thing I have ever heard of — where one kind of criminal gets 5 to 7 years for murdering a person, and another gets life in prison for killing a dog. Too stupid to be alive to believe that one.

Sorry, no go for me...

I’m for killing animals and eating them. I’m a full-fledged member of PETA — “People for Eating Tasty Animals”... and I’m not going to join any of those earth-first or enviro-whackos or the animal-lovers above people groups...

LOL...

Where is this law that says killing a dog is punishable by life in prison? You have yet to answer that question.

That’s what my comments were about on that other post... LOL... in case you didn’t read it. That’s what the thread was about.

Someone was getting life in prison for killing a dog... and like I said, that’s “too-stupid-to-be-alive sentence...

For me, a person killing someone gets either life in prison or the death sentence. A person killing a dog has to pay for property — as that’s what a dog is, the property of the owner.

And I have always maintained that anyone damaging property, or killing someone’s property should be absolutely required for paying for that. You don’t damage someone’s property and get away with that. But, that’s not life in prison... LOL...

As for me, I like to kill animals and eat them and I think there are a lot of other people who like to kill animals and eat them. The only thing is that I don’t go killing someone else’s property.

Why not answer the question? Is the punishment for killing a dog life in prison, or isn’t it. What does the law say?

That’s what the other thread was talking about, the law that said the guy was going to get life in prison for killing a dog...

That’s stupid beyond belief... LOL...

Just pay for the stupid dog and some damages and be done with it...

“...the law that said the guy was going to get life in prison for killing a dog...”

You keep alluding to a law that says that the punishment forkilling a dog is life imprisonment, but you refuse to tell me what law you’re talking about?

Gee, why won’t you answer the simple question and tell us all what law say’s that killing a dog is punishable byt life in prison.

Could it be because, as you know, there is no such law that you claim exists?

What State has this law? What does the law say, exactly?

Either way, you equate the bashing in of a dog’s head with a hammer to making a hole in a piece of sheetrock.

I feel sorry for you.

Hey, I didn;t post it on that other thread about that stupid law where a guy was going to prison for life for killing a dog. That thread was posted by someone else. You’ll have to ask them about the law.

As for me, I said I’m a member of PETA (People for Eating Tasty Animals) and I killed animals and ate them. I’m not one of those enviro-whackos or one of those “animals-are-better-than-people” crazies... LOL...

As far as a person’s property is concerned, if someone damages it or whatever, then they need to compensate you for your property loss. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a piece of sheetrock or a dog — it’s the same thing.

But, this crazy idea that some people have that animals are on the same level as people is plain stupid...
