The owner, Chuck Zilich, said he used his dog's leash to choke the pit bull and tie it up until animal-control officers arrived.

He's a braver man than I. Moore seems like a true scumbag.

How about euthanizing the morons who are responsible for all this hurt and viciousness? It doesn't sound like Moore will ever be a positive contributing member of society....time to clean house. A-hole.

There is a special place reserved in Hell for people who exploit defenseless animals for their personal gutter snipe pleasure.

These two are pondscum and should be eradicated permanently from society.

To think they'd waste expensive drugs on a dog is laughable.
It's not considered a waste if your dog wins a fight and you walk away with many times more than that. I don't think people realize how serious underground dog fighting really is.

What makes me sad is the public outcry against the dogs when this is just more proof that the OWNERS are at fault. Outlaw pit bulls and these a$$holes will turn to another breed to fight. I agree with the above poster who said we should put THESE guys down.

that SUX. people who are cruel to any animals, but particularly domestic pets, will hopefully face a pretty nasty version of hell. again, that SUX.

a friend of mine has an american staffordshire terrier, or a breed that can be confused w/pit bull (pit bulls aren't just one breed, for those that don't know that). people cross the street to get away from her, but she's one of the best tempered, smartest dogs i've ever known. when i hug her and she lays her head against my cheek and growls her happy growl, i wonder how anyone could hurt such creatures. they only become what we make them.

Most people who keep pit bulls is either for dog fighting or they like them MEAN because it's "macho". That's why we need to ban the breed and pit bull mixes too.

DOG FIGHTERS routinely give pit bulls cocaine or speed to make them fight better. Dog fighting is a national epidemic far worse than the narcotic rings. That's why the government needs to ban the breed. Seriously.

Charlie, my friend, methinks it is YOU who is laughable. I'm assuming this was written totally in jest, because it is very difficult to believe anyone would actually say such a laughable thing in any serious way.
Yeah right

Now that's what I call a waste of coke.

Sounds more like the dog needed a Valium.

Why, just why aren't these animals banned from the city limits, and I mean the pit bulls not these two idiots. Why are you not permitted to have a chicken within the city limts, but you are allowed to own one of these dogs???
City Attorney, show some leadership and call for council to ban these dogs before we have a child killed or injured in a more serious condition than this child was.
Thugs, idiots & lil' gangster wanna be's are the only idiots who see fit to own this breed of dog. Tax them to death for it, or just ban them outright. As for the Tax, it would the most these folks ever contributed to our society anyway, perhaps that's the approach.
Nonetheless, git rid of this breed of dog NOW!!!

This is a truck load of BS BS BS BS BS BS BS, a horse by any other name is still a horse. Titles and fancy breed names are not cutting it anymore. When the snout of the dog is as broad as its shoulders, it needs to go, regardless of it's color, size or, as this guy would have you believe, the name of the breed.
The ol' response of, "my pit bull is the most gentle, kind, sweet loving dog I've ever owned" is and will continue to be the biggest line of BS around.
These dogs are able to tear a tire in two, don't buy that argument for a minute!

There's a lot of dogs with heads equal to their shoulders(or larger) including Labradors and St Bernards. Should we ban them too? It IS NOT THE DOGS, it is the stupid HUMANS( if you want to call them that) who own them that cause the misery. We will NEVER cure the problem if we don't address the root, THE BAD OWNER.

You are an ignorant fool. Pit bulls are one of the best breeds out there. They are incredibly smart and only want to please their owners. That's why they are used in dog fighting--because they are trained that what they are doing is pleasing their human. Do some research before you open your big mouth.

Hahaha are you kidding me? Now where did you come up with this snout/shoulder dimension thing? Your attitude and ignorance is what perpetuates the misconception that pit bulls are dangerous by nature. I pity your stupidity. How do you find your way home after a long walk?
