There is no excuse for locking a dog or a child in a car in hot weather.

......that's right, Walmart parking lot.
Let's get a picture of the car, I already have one in mind of the 24 year old woman.
She maybe could have left the poor pitbull with friends but it might have attacked and mauled them.

I personally know 5 pits, and over the years maybe a couple dozen: every single one of them is more apt to lick your arm off then bite it. Also, they have been absolutely great with small kids.

It's the owners, not the dogs, always. These two chowderheads above me obviously have never encountered a pitbull raised in a decent family.

Crappy way for any dog to die, heat exhaustion. That lady is a jerkoff.

"owner" of the dog should be locked in car for four hours too! Why don't we need a license to own an animal or have children?

I can picture fishing guy with his fat gut, old pickup truck and a fat wife and dorky kids with a poodle.

What is wrong with people, how can they just be soo stupid! No animal deserves to be treated in this manner, it saddens me that no one found him earlier. What a senseless death.

ANY DOG can become voilent and attack if it is mistreated and abused...Time and time again its been proven that its the people who raise the dog that determine how it reacts. Please don't be small minded and blame a breed of dogs...they are just animals who sadly have to rely on people...and sometimes by STUPID people.

Nikki, I don't believe that pit bulls are an evil breed who are just waiting to pounce on the unwary.

But the fact remains that as a breed, pit pulls are much more capable of inflicting great damage because of the strength of their jaws and their tenacity when they do lock onto something.
And any dog is capable of attacking if provoked (and sometimes it isn't really known what will trigger a particular dog).

But when less powerful dogs attack they usually can be pulled off much, much easier than a pit bull can. IF a pit bull attacks it WILL do great damage. So IF a person is going to own a pit bull they have to make sure it's under control at all times.

Perhaps people who want to buy pit bulls should have to get a special license showing that they have had training on how pit bulls should be handled and that they understand what a pit bull is capable of.

So proud I am to share this wonderful planet with so many #!@$##$@#$ing brain dead losers.

The problem is the idiots are out numbering the intelligent. Many cannot even read, several of those who can read, maintain low comprehension skills. Making change for a dollar without a fricken' machine is a thing of the past. But video games and drugs - oh boy now this is the arena of today, and the cruelty and misjudgement is simply the toxic waste by product of our own ignorance. Cannot help but wonder how many people passed the car noticing the dog but shrugging it off as 'NOT MY PROBLEM' maybe a few even enabled themselves to pass by thinking to themselves 'OH, I'm SURE THE PEOPLE WILL BE RIGHT BACK' personally I find it difficult to trust anyone with anything anymore/ever again.

Only an irresponsible, neglectful parent exposes their child to an animal capable of killing them, regardless of how well trained that animal is. Ask Siegfried and Roy.

I remember how well behaved the black bear cub and lion cub I bottle fed were. Doesnt mean I'm gonna take kids around them! Even as cute little cubs they are quite capable of doing serious harm. Same goes for pits

Tjank you!! I agree with you! I admit, I was afraid of Pitts, until my son brought his cute puppy home. She is the sweetest and most gentle animal. Definately not what I expected from a Pitt; it is HOW they are raised that matters.

I don't know if they need a license but I would say love and common sense would help much more than useless paperwork. I used to train German Shepherds and owned 2 myself. I would have had no problem taking any dog I trained into downtown Mpls. W/O a leach and felt assured that the dog was under control at all times. I had other small dogs and little children come up to my dogs to pet them or for other dogs just to have their good sniff and never did my dogs ever react to them in a negative way. One command from me and any one of those dogs would have been toast but my dogs knew their place. I have a picture of my daughter when she was 2 years old using the sleeping dogs head for a chair while playing with her doll, priceless and reminds me how much I miss those dogs. K-9 officers I know bring their Shepherds home at night and the next day that same dog may be attacking a criminal. It's all in how the dog is treated and trained---too bad irresponcible people are allowed to have animals of any kind because the only defense they have when abused is to fight back.....

This woman should get the same treatment as if she left a 2yr old child in her car. Anyone that has a pet, should be smart enough to realize that you should not leave the animal in a car for four hours especially when it is 86 degrees outside. What an idiot.

Well, what's wrong with a poodle.........Hey, wait a minute.....who are you "Realist". Are you "really" the 24 year old woman that left that poor pitbull in the car at Walmart? You're the poster "Realist" aren't you. You left that poor dog to die in the car on that hot day. I hope that someday you get locked in a car on a hot summer day. You should never again be allowed to own another pet of any kind. If you do own one, I hope it's another pitbull that turns on you and mauls your face.

I am just saying people should not write off the breed. There are several breeds of dogs that are very powerful, if not due to their jaws, due to their mear size and temperment...I just think people should not be soo quick to judge --thats all.. I personally do not own pits...but I still think they should have a fair shake.
