Owner angry after dog killed by pit bull

Oct 24, 2012 Full story: WESH-TV 18

A Port Orange woman says a pit bull killed her Pomeranian when they were out on a walk, and the pit bull wasn't even quarantined or labeled "dangerous." Lisa Moyer said she was walking her 8-pound dog, Louie, with another small dog.

I love dogs. I spent 30 years jumping in back yards with dogs, some vicious. Bit one time, not my fault. many dog sotries, but let me say this, That pit needs the sponge treatment. Here is the recipe. New cheap kitchen sponges dredged in bacon fat left all around the yard of the pit bull. dog eats sponges, dog drinks water, sponges swell up. The rest of the story is left to your imagination. I have a 15 lb Poodle, should my dog be attacked like that I can asure you that is a dead dog maybe walking maybe not walking depending on circumstances at the moment.

It's an emotional story with only one side. It's an incoplete storie from somone that is trying to build a defense out of desparation. This could be your kid,-it wasn't, if enough people support the issue maybe they want a lawsuit. The pitbull was in the park and just decided to eat hr dog? None of this is i denfense of the pitbull but a pitbull's unpredicable reputation, should dictate that you shouldn't let small dogs near them. What is the story from the peron that owns the pitbull- then decide....!

I was that owner and MY dogs were on leashes the pit bull charged at us. Which by the way this is a pit bull restricted community. My case has been treated like nothing more than road kill and my little dog is dead and that pit was not suppose to be there from the being. It is people like you and the dirt bag owners of these dogs who do not take care of them is why these incidences happen.

the other side? She was wrong her dog was not leashed. My dog had no chance of even running because my dogs were on a leash. She was evicted fyi. If you want to run your big pedestrian ignorant mouth I invite you to go on Louie's Law on Facebook. It is people like you so stupid and ignorant that own these dogs and responsible pet owners pay the price. put you money where your mouth is. We will meet you on fb Louies Law.

Thanks next time I will keep that in mind. Doing the things the right way was ultimately the "wrong way"

ALL dogs leashed! I have killed many pits. Just inject a raw egg through the shell with a syringe with antifreeze. The egg makes it easy to toss into the offending animals yard
Bye-bye to the problem.

Put your money where your mouth is...? Louie's law..? Its people like you that want to settle out of court, get paid and raise everyones taxes. So much for your pain and suffering from a personal point of view. It sounds like you made this a public issue just to find a partial jury. Submit to a drug test before you waste tax dollars on a settlement. Then find out if you have a case. Your medications issues don't work!

Unless if provoked, the owner of the dog who kills another dog, Should be held responsible. I don't hate Pitbulls but I certainly do not trust them. They just have that killer instinct. yes I know some pitbulls have bad owners, but they are just a wary breed. it's just a fact I'm not basshing them, it's just something in their genes.

I have owned pitbulls before they were ever mentioned in the news. I have NEVER had one of my dogs behave aggressively toward anyone or any other animal. I would LOVE to hear the other side of this story, because I cannot believe that action was not taken against the pit bull if there was a reason.

I have been around dogs all my life, ironically its the small yappy ankle biters that cause a lot of the problem with their Napoleon Syndrome attitudes. I have had my dogs in the vet office lobby sitting or laying quietly and it never fails that one of these small yappy worthless dogs will start growling and pulling on their leash to bite my dogs.

Historically, yorkshire terriers, pomeranians, chihuahuas, and similar yappers are most notorious for biting, you just don't hear about it in the news. Pit bulls DO NOT have a killer instinct. Their behavior is a reflection of how they are raised, just like any other dog, including the small yappy ankle biters.

The only dog I have ever been bit by was a yorkshire terrier, in the home of a customer. A chihuahua tried very hard to bite me, of all places in a store, where it had no business being.

Pit bulls are beautiful creatures. Dogs fight(not just pit bulls), cats fight, humans fight. It's life. You can't hate on aggressive pits, but you can hate on their owners. Just my opinion, though.

You're right to a point but the public has a right to be protected from animals considered vicious breed that can do serious damage to a person in a matter of seconds. To try to compare a pit to a yapping ankle biter is a bit ludicrous. Ankle biters don't cause death and HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars in medical,hospital,plastic surgery,and defense lawyers fees? Pits do! Can you handle a high six figure suit and possible lifetime court judgement until it's paid off?

ThomasA - Tell that to the ER doctors that treat dog bites by dogs other than pit bulls and so called vicious breeds. They aren't reported in the news, but they happen on a daily basis. Small dogs bite faces of children that require stitches, but you don't hear that in the news. If it had been a pitbull, it would be all over the news. I know this because one of my children works in a ER.

I support our Humane Society, and take my dogs to their dog shot fundraisers. The last time I went, it was the "yapping ankle biters" that would run at my dogs barking and growling. Would it be my dogs fault if it defended itself? It some people's eyes it would be. Most disappointing, was that the owner of this dog picked it up and cuddled it, reinforcing its aggresive behavior. Most of them do this, and some even find it funny or cute.

Back to my previous question: Do you have coverage to cover a high six figure cost for doctors,hospitals,follow up plastic surgeries just in case your little pit decides to defend his turf mauling someone's child? A child with permanent scars standing in front of a judge is no match for your defense of "it never showed signs of being aggressive,it was just one of the family". Most insurance policies don't have high levels needed to cover single maulings,much less multiple situations.Damage from an ankle biter may be your limit,check it out.

I don't live in a neighborhood with children, I live in the country. And yes my insurance does cover my dog because it has a "good citizen" certificate. Aside from that, my dogs are not out in my yard except to do their business unless I am out there with them or close by. They are seven years old and have NEVER showed signs of aggression, but they do bark and go with me to the door if someone knocks.

Aggressive dogs are aggressive because of their upbringing, not because they are born that way. However, "bully breeds" seem to have to take the sh*t that small dogs dish out and not defend themselves. While I have to be on the defense with my dogs at all times, other dog owners do not seem to care how their dogs behave.

But back to your question: Why should I have to cover any cost due to the neglect of a parent who would allow their child to roam the neighborhood alone and into someone's yard?

Of course, the ankle biter that killed a baby by mauling on its face never made the news. It happens more than you probably realize. The typical media only reports the headlines that make people gasp though.

i really really really have a hard time with pit bull owners taking no responsibly
for their actions....im tired of pitbul lowners protecting their poor pit bulls and not caring about safety of children..or people period.
my friend was murdered by a pitbull that owners just let run off leash all the time..its disgusting..
my neighbors do the same thing,,,,and blame me when animal control makes them use a leash.
i could bet most pit bull owners are of low intelligence,uneducated,
and have tiny tiny tiny penises.or if they are a woman ..never even seen a penis..cause there pitbull is there lover
its disgusting.pitbull lowners..grow up.the world does not revolve around you..there is a reason no good insurance company will insure you.
if you are a pitbull owner...get your papers...get dog neutered,,take classes..educate..exercise your dog,,,always use a leash...have respect and empathy for others....seriously..my friend is murdered because of an idiot who did not honor being a dog owner,if you love dogs..be an honorable owner.or dont get a dog.
