I don't know why people are so stupid. This Felton guy must have thought the risk to his family was worth having a pit bull.
I hope she sticks you in a nursing home some day and leave you there to rot... you freaking IDIOT!!!

these dogs are useless and bring no value to society. even the best ones with the best owners have been known to attack. and to make matters worse many pb owners are nothing but useless thugs themselves with small weenies who need a big dog to compensate.

Ok, lets hear it from the stupid pit owners that continue to put their head in the sand and preach how loving these dogs are. May your own children be eatin for lunch!

Hey Vern, you are ignorant! Pitbulls are generally nice dogs, This is a tragedy, just because it was an accident, doesn't mean you need to blame the father for it. And with a name like Verne, you probably already do live in a nursing home!

Pitts are wonderful dogs, all dogs have the ability to turn so thinking that one breed is a problem is assinine. Those who have never had a pitt or encountered one should shut their mouths. You people are morons who know nothing

THIS IS THE WORST OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR. THIS BREED OF DOG SHOULD BE STOPPED. THEY ARE ONLY FOR THE DEMETED, CRIMMINAL,PSYCHOPATHS. THEY TOOK THE BEST ANIMAL IN THE WORLD AND MADE A MONSTER BREED OUT OF THEM. AND IT'S THE WORST OF HUMANS THAT OWN THEM AND BREED THEM.

Can't be surprised at the comments i have read here.... It's such a shame that "certain" dogs get such bad wraps. I have children and I have dobes and they are WONDERFUL with my kids. There are bad dogs in many breeds and a lot of it has to do with how they are raised/bred. There are nice Pits out there. I under no circumstance am putting my family at risk. I'm glad that many people have come to recognize what wonderful family dogs dobes are and I hope people judge the deed and not the breed. What would you all think if this wasn't a pit, but a lab or a jack russell? You would think differently.

"Pitbulls are generally nice dogs"????? The only nice pitbull is a dead pitbull. And you are calling Verne ignorant. Ever see anything on the news about a chihuahua attacking someone so violently that they need 900 stitches??

And they wanna put "me" in jail for allegedly using these loving animals for sport and play. Wonder who they will answer to for using the foot ball players for sport and play? Ah, training dogs to fight? Who trains the human boxers to fight? Poor Ali got his brains beat out, poor Mike tyson and others, who trained them? And what will be the penalty?

So by your standards, people who don't own one but were attacked by one have to keep their mouths. Moron.

"Deputies said the woman's father, Felton Boyles, pried the dog off his daughter at it shook her head back and forth in its grip"

Once again Sun Sentinel manages to kill spelling worse than pit bulls kill people...

Oh, and the bad rap pit bulls get are from their history...
As for me, I will feel safe even with the beasts running free across the street as long as my shepherd is around to take them down. There's a family dog, putting his life in danger to keep us safe, especially when the pit bull owners are notorious for not keeping their dogs on leashes or on their own property.

<<<all dogs have the ability to turn so thinking that one breed is a problem is assinine>>>

Other breeds do not have the jaw power and cannot reign the damage and death of a Pitbull dog. If that were the family Schit-zu or beagle or Retriever that went ballistic, the girl would not be in need of 900 stitches.
