How about we just ban irresponsible owners of any potentially dangerous animal.

I agree with you. I don't know whats true and whats not. These folks that where talking about it said some Malone Officials had already contacted some Westville Officials and i know Westville banned Pittbulls several years ago.But im not sure what happened to be honest.

I'll second that. If the dog does something wrong, put the owner in jail. Just like any animal, it is the way they are trained. The biggest problem we have with my son's pitbull is you can't keep her out of the pool.

It's the owner not the dog. Why would the idiot let the kid walk the dog when the dog was stronger than the kid. That's just looking for trouble. The owner should be made to wear a sign
"my dog killed another because I am to stupid to train him"

I happen to own 2 pitbulls and they are the biggest babies of any animal i have ever owned. Its not the breed of dog its who raises them and how they are taught to act. I have heard numerous dog bitings from poodles, shit szu's,pugs etc how is it that these are never discussed? Not all pits are bad so people need to stop punishing the breed and start punishing the people who make them have a bad name. Dont punish the breed punish the deed. Its pretty much animal racism (as stupid as that may sound)for including all of one breed for some peoples ignorance.

Anyone training a dog to be mean should be put in jail, and ban for life from ever living on any premise that has a dog. Dogs are not born mean or dangerous, they are made that way by people, and people who make them that way, should be the ones to suffer for it, not the animal. Banning animals doesn't stop stupid people from being abusive to animals, they just find another breed to make mean.

Well right of the bat i don't have a "Thick Head" and i really don't see where anyone who wants there 7 year old to make it to school safely is "self-centered" i am lucky enough to be able to change my work scedule so i can drop my child off and my husband picks her up.
You say it was another dog that was attacked? Well thats all i asked to know wasn't it? Try to stay on Topic next time won't you?

i my self have two pitbulls that are very gentle loving dogs but what people have to realize is they are also very protective dogs if they think their owner is in danger they will protect them whether it be another dog barking at there owner or a person that is a threat they are also very territorial and will protect there home or area now before anyone wants to fight me on this many other dogs are the same way but the only ones that make the papers are pitbulls because people are scared of them weimaraners and st bernards are dogs that can be very aggressive in nature too i know of two families that had these dogs bite children personally. now another thing i have had a pitbull in the past she was like 7 years old when i had my first child and introducing the child to the dog did not go well the dog was scared of her and the dog ended up biting my childs arm now it was not a vicious attack the dog grab my child by the arm and threw her when my child cornered the dog she had one small punture wound and barely cried but we brought her to the hospital and her arm was broke. needless to say i had the dog put down. my whole thing is you have to be a responsible owner raise the dog right and know what they are capable of and any dog no matter the breed can at anytime attack so people need to be responsible and all the scumbags that get a pitbull so they can look tuff and beat it to make it mean should be the ones to blame not the dog

well the owner is quite vocal on facebook stating that he has handraised this dog since it was a puppy, bringing it to work with him everyday. So how do you explain a well raised and socialized dog simply attacking a small breed until it reached death, tied to a leash with no way to get away from the powerful jaws and strong shakes? The truth is this breed is overall aggressive and people just get them to show how cool they are! Get a job instead...I would respect that more!

So the irresponsible convicts and the more irresponsible drug dealers are going to trash the breed that they use as a weapon and ruin it for the one or two responsible owners you might be able to point out.

Raise poodles.

Pitbulls are too dangerous in the present circumstances and they need to go.

Can't believe it but I actually agree with you on this topic. Most of those that own pit bulls where I live own them because they want to make others think they are tough by living vicariously through their mutt. Seems the hispanics are the ones who have them the most.

Regardless of how socialized and trained a dog, we must remember, it is an animal. Animals exist with the survival of the fittest mentality. They snap sometimes, truly unfortunate for all that involved.

Dogs are bred for a reason and they are born with instincts due to that breeding. Pit Bulls have been bred to fight and attack.

When I bought my lab he was only 8 weeks old but if I threw a ball in a baby pool he couldn't help himself, he jumped right in to retrieve the ball. No one taught him that, RETRIEVING was his instinct, in his blood. It wouldn't matter how I "raised" him, if someone throws a ball, his instinct kicks in and he goes after it.

Pit Bulls have a bad reputation that they deserve. They have been bred for a purpose and no matter how they are raised, they can snap. People get off on owning them as a social status, they think they look big and bad and cool. Same reason you hear of idiots keeping dangerous snakes, or a tiger in a cage out back.

Every time a pit bull attacks someone the owners say it wasn't raised that way, had never been in a fight. That was said by some owners where I live, the dog had attacked their 2 yr old and the dog had to be euthanized and the babys scalp removed from its stomach. it wasn't "raised" that way, but it was BRED that way. Breeding is what trumps all, try and keep a border collie or an australian shepard from "herding". Yes sometimes poodles and chihuahuas bite but you don't hear so much because they don't do life threatening damage like the big ugly mouth of a pit bull.

Bigot.

We have plenty of lily white wannabe hoodlums around here without needing to specify any one group. 99% of pitbull owners are up to their eyeballs in drugs. Seeing someone on the street with one ought to be probable cause enough for a real thorough search and arrest.

They should be banned in Malone. Think about the people you see walking pit bulls up and down main street. Now imagine that one of those peoples dogs attacks you or your kid and need to go to the hospital.

Technically the dogs owner should be held liable for the hospital bill and/or funeral bill, God forbid. Do you really think the people who live in the slums of Pearl street would have the means to pay those bills? Of course not! You would be stuck with that bill, it doesn't matter if the courts got involved and sent them bills, they don't work (except maybe under the table), don't pay their own bills, or own anything worth taking anyway. Its like getting in a car crash with an uninsured driver, your insurance has to pay for your car and injuries even if it wasn't your fault, your premiums go up. they may go to jail but whoop dee doo, you can't get blood from a stone. The dogs most likely aren't vaccinated so now you're getting rabies shots which arent cheap. People who make life choices that result in living on welfare, on Pearl street slums, don't often have the means or the judgment to do the right thing.

Any dog could be provoked to bite someone. Yes weimeraners and St Bernards can bite. The difference is in the WAY a pit bull attacks. Most other breeeds will bite and back off, but a pit bull attacks, grabs on to flesh and whips its head around to tear and destroy, kill, just as they are bred to do in a fight. That is why they are especially dangerous and socially polarizing.

Most dogs have been raised to be domesticated to a degree that allows them to be socialable around other dogs and people. However, the Pit has traditionally been raised to fight and be aggressive. Hence the large head and super strong jaws of the pit. This is why they should be regulated to some degree. All dogs can be aggressive when they fear they're being threatened and also to protect their master. But Pits have this inbred quality of not only attacking, but ultimately killing its prey. They've been known to attack inanimate objects like cars for heavens sake. You can't convince me that this breed is entirely as safe as a beagle or spaniel. I don't believe it. If someone has to have a pitbull, they should be required to keep the animal in a very controlled environment, I.E. and enclosed cage of some sort with a roof over it. And there should be some sort of ordnance that requires a minimum age limit to take the dog out in public so that the animal is under control at all times. Even then, they've been known to turn on their masters. People who own them should be required to have a special breeding license.
Yes, I know I'll get beat up over my post. But enough is enough. And one poster had it on the nose. People will have these dogs so that they can appear more macho and big and strong and powerfull. They're living vicariously through the dog because they're a phony in real life.
Read McClains posts on FB. If ever there was a man who needs to validate his life, it's him. He should go back to school and learn how to write an spell and generally improve his social skills overall.

I've seen the young thugs let their dogs off the leash, on a public street, just to intimidate people. It only takes one moron like this to negate any ten responsible owners.

As far as liability goes, well, that works out on paper and as a matter of record and all, but you can't get blood from a stone. These thugs don't look like they have much of anything worth seizing. They can't even back themselves up, what a bunch of nothings.

Unless of course you count the gold teeth. Course they went into hawk over that, too.

But you're right, not only are they raised to be aggressive, they are bred to be aggressive. We don't need any more of that.

But yeah... police should be following the pit bulls. There's flashing neon light that points to criminal activity, any way you slice it. It doesn't get any more plain than that.
