get those nasty dogs off the street!!! forget about drug dealers, thieves and dope heads. lets forget about all those burglaries and robberies that have been happening. dont worry about the coward who robbed that 100 year old man. i think this is a case of senseless killing. why wasnt the animal control person called and the dog shot with a tranquilizer? yes the owner should have had the dog fenced in or chained up just like some people should be! btw who was the officer?

I agree Hope, the officer should have never went back up to the house if the dog had charged him once already. Animal Control should have been called.

Typical cop just likes to show authority. Just not right. Owners should keep their animals up, or she could have atleast went out the 1st time the cop went up to the door. Makes me wonder what she was doing! If she would have went out, the dog would still be alive. I love all DOGS!!! Give me dogs over people any day. They are so loyal and ask for so little. Poor dogs probably didn't have food and water if she was like that!

well pitbulls are very aggressive but only if the owner is as well. they r bred for fights but they dont have to be. its all about the environment they r in. the cop could have been killed you see it in the news all the time!!!!!

I breed pitbulls Kayrae, they are not bred to fight. They are bred to be loyal family companions, they are TAUGHT to fight. If the cop would not have kept going up to the house as the paper states, the dog would probably still be here today, hopefully not in the same owners hands though.

Sadly it is owners like Pamela Cody who are the real problem. Pit bulls are very good dogs if they are not abused and taught to be human aggressive. Key word is 'taught'. In order to make them aggressive, they are abused. When the 'law' stops blaming animals for what humans force them to do, or be, most all attacks would cease. Ms. Cody needs to be more than fined..as she is ignorance at it's worst.

Pitbulls are banned in the town that I live in. But I have not ran across a mean one yet. They are not mean dogs it's the owners that make them mean. They are not bad dogs. I have to work with the police everyday and the ones in my town call me when they run up on a mean dog. The officer should be charged with the death of that dog. It's not right for him to shoot the dog. If I was the owner I would call someone about this and push the issue.

I've breed pits for15 years an yes 60% of the time its the owners fault but u don't have to teach them aggressiveness they already have it n them its just some dogs its somethings that just bring it out n them but all of them are territorial and aggressive they just may have not had it brought out n them some jus never come across" that something" that makes them click like that. U don't have to teach them to be aggressive
And as far as tranquillizing gun, Duke wont buy the darts to tranquilizers them if they use any gun its a rifle that's used to kill them.
