Another idiot owner that the breed will get the blame if the dogs wouldn't have Ben left unattended then this would've Ben prevented and you didn't hear anything about the owner bad just the dogs in my opinion the owner should be punished not the dogs but its too late for that I understand they had to do what was necessary but it still makes me sad when will they punish the owners

I bet the owner of the dog was black. What is it with blacks and their pit bulls?

I am a single WHITE Mom, I happen to have 2 pitbulls and one American Bull dog. All of my dogs are sweet and kind, they have NEVER attacked or even gone at someone in a harmful manner. You all are idiots talking about a breed that is not at all what every one thinks. it is the Owners who make any breed of dog mean.

The owners were white. I know a LOT of white pit owners, seeing as I carried mail on the West Side for 6 1/2 years. Yes, having an intact male pit is a symbol of power and virility among certain groups, but they aren't the only ones who enjoy the breed.

I had many pitbulls on my old route who were sweet and loving to me but HATED other mail carriers, dogs, or neighbors. But no one should EVER say "my dog won't bite"... what is meant is "my dog won't bite ME".

My only thoughts on this are: 1/ dogs should be SECURELY housed; 2/ there should be a dog limit in every town, and funding for enough humane officers to enforce it [Charleston has a 2-dog limit, but many people exceed that]; 3/ all dogs should be neutered/spayed BY LAW... there is no reason to have intact dogs unless you're a certified breeder.

I'm single, white, have no children and I don't date black guys. I have a year old pit that is the most gentle, sweet dog you'll ever see.

It's bad owners that need to be put down, not the dog. If the dog is raised properly and taught not to be aggressive or mean he won't be. It's jackasses that have to make their dog mean because they lack in their manhood in some other way that give the breed a bad name. Probably the same kind of men that are so insecure that they hit their women too.
