CAPE MAY The owner of the Wagging Tail Pet Shop in Erma was reportedly attacked on Monday by a pit bull that was owned by the tenant of an apartment above the business. Patsy Nelson suffered serious bite wounds to her hip and one arm, according to police reports. Police said Donald Titus, 25, who lives in an apartment above the shop, was constructing a dog pen in the backyard when the attack occurred.
Nelson was taken to the Cape Regional Medical Center in Cape May Court House for treatment of her injuries. Titus was cited for failure to license his dog, having his dog cause serious injury to a person, and having a potentially dangerous dog. The 3-year-old male pit bull is now under quarantine at the Cape May County Animal Shelter, a requirement of state statute.
Its not he dogs fault!
Its the owners fault /sarc
Why are so may animal abusers attracted to pitbulls?
Waiting for the always given “He’s a great dog, he’s never done anything like this before” line by the owner or relative of the owner.

How did you miss this? ... :-)
Same reason so many thugs are attracted to tattoos, violent loud music, and guns. It makes them look tough.
Every bit of me.
“Titus was cited for failure to license his dog...”
Let’s just ignore these little details because they obviously aren’t forming a pattern or anything. By the way, when other dog bite stories are aired, the same pesky details tend to make themselves available. But irresponsible ownership must just be a coincidental factor in these cases, right?
The pet shop owner concluded the terms of the purchase, and after having a large salt water pool installed on the premises of his shop, took delivery of his new porpoises.
They were an immediate hit with customers and his business boomed; however, he found that all his new profits were going to parrots, parakeets, macaws, etc. simply to keep the porpoises happy. Having exhausted his normal supply channels he turned to theft, and began burglarizing homes, zoos and other petshops in search of talking birds to feed his porpoises until these sources too, began to dry up.
At his wit's end, he saw an advertisement for a circus coming to town...noting "Clowns, Wild Animals, and the World's Largest Minah Bird Collection".
Inspired by the prospective score, he bought a ticket to the circus, only to find that the minah cage was secured in the middle of the lion cage. He secretly remained on the premises after closing hours, when to his delight, he saw the lion tamer tranquilize the lions before going to bed.
The petshop owner then tiptoed into the lion cage, and placed all the minah birds into a large sack and snuck back out of the tent.
Police were fortunate enough to find a fingerprint, and the man was later arrested...
...and charged with transporting minahs across sedated lions for immortal porpoises.
The Lhaza Apso, Papillion and Cockapoo population, however is moving en masse to San Francisco, Boston and Atlanta, so they can be “what they were born to be.”
It's great that we live in a country that offers these pets self-determination and self-actualization, don't you think?
???Put down the bottle and call AA.
that would be a careless thing to have.. poor 1
some just love pit bulls
The longer the set up, the worse the pun!
