Oh my god, can't deny. Give it a rest. Now your just ticking people off and doing no good. Everyone hass read your "proof" so many times its sickning. The people who already agree with you are already on your side. The people like me think your an idiot, you won't sway them so I am not sure why your wasting your time. There are two types of Animal people in this world. Animal lovers (me) and Animal Haters (Can't Deny) and when I mean Animal Haters they might have a fish or feed wild birds, but anything more difficult then that they deem them useless. Good luck dealing with Can't Deny everyone S/He is stuck on their soap box and no amount of coaxing will get him/her down. All animal lovers can do is if this pitbull ban actully surfaces start another petition. If you give a man an inch they will take a mile and once people think they can ban one breed, they will go after the rest.
#130 May 8, 2012
explain to me exactly why posting the truth and backing it up with documented verifiable facts is being an idiot maybe if you can explain this to me i will stop posting
and explain to me why you keep reading and replying to my posts if like you say i am never going to change your mind why don't you just chalk me up as just another nut and move on to reading and replying to other threads what keeps drawing you back to mine if i am never going to change your mind
your comment about - if they ban one breed they will go after others later - IS NOTHING BUT FEAR MONGERING LIES pitbulls have been banned in places for upwards of 20 years and what you say HAS NOT HAPPENED AND THAT CAN BE PROVEN WITH DOCUMENTED VERIFIABLE FACTS how about if you are going to put out a fear based LIE like that you back it up with proof and i'll show you how to do it so YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR NOT BACKING IT UP
research existing bans and when they were enacted then figure out which bans are the oldest and see if those places in the upwards of 20 years have banned any other breed since originally banning pitbulls YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE NOW BACK UP WHAT YOU SAY OR DON'T SAY IT
#131 May 8, 2012
i'm going to try and break this down into it's simplest terms
PITBULLS KILL MORE PEOPLE THAN ANY
OTHER ANIMAL ON THE FACE OF THE
PLANET OUTSIDE OF HUMANS
if lions killed more people than any other animal outside of humans - there wouldn't be any lions left we would kill them all
if polar bears killed more people than any other animal outside of humans - there wouldn't be any polar bears left we would kill them all
if coyotes killed more people than any other animal outside of humans - there wouldn't be coyotes left we would kill them all
so why is it that pitbulls kill more people than any other animal outside of humans
AND THEY GET A PASS
if any one can explain this to me please do

2012 Dog Bite Fatality: 16-Month Old Girl Killed by Family Pit Bull
Las Cruces, NM - In a developing story, there has been another fatal pit bull mauling in the State of New Mexico in less than one week. At the time of the incident, the child was in the backyard of her grandparent's home. The girl's 52-year old grandmother was accidentally shot in the leg after one neighbor intervened with a firearm to stop the pit bull attacking the girl. Both victims were transported to El Paso hospital. The child did not survive the injuries inflicted by the pet pit bull.
A different neighbor, Chris Wollard, who heard the gunshots from about 100 yards away, also ran to the home to help. He looked into the backyard where he found the grandmother and child hiding underneath a trampoline.1 Wollard, a respiratory therapist, took the child and began giving her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation until paramedics arrived. He told the Las Cruces Sun-News that the child was in "pretty bad shape." Police officials are continuing their investigation
WHAT DO YOU PITNUTTERS HAVE TO SAY NOW THAT ANOTHER INNOCENT CHILD IS NOT ONLY DEAD BUT HORRIBLY RIPPED APART
COME ON I WANT TO HEAR YOUR RESPONSES NOW
EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN IN ABOUT 21 DAYS BECAUSE ON AVERAGE THAT IS HOW LONG IT TAKES FOR A FRANKENMAULER TO TAKE ANOTHER LIFE - AND THAT IS A DOCUMENTED VERIFIABLE FACT

#135 May 8, 2012
I CAN PROVE WITH DOCUMENTED VERIFIABLE FACTS THAT PITBULLS MAKE ROTTWEILERS, GERMAN SHEPARDS, DOBERMAN PINCHERS, MASTIFFS, AKITAS, WOLF HYBRIDS, COYOTES, LIONS, SHARKS AND POLAR BEARS - LOOK LIKE F^^KING ANGELS

Family pit bulls maul 2 California toddlers in separate incidents
Two San Francisco Bay area toddlers were mauled by family pit bulls less than 24 hours apart, officials said Tuesday.
Both victims, one from Castro Valley and one Concord, were reported recovering in Oakland Children’s Hospital, television station KTVU reported. Neither child was identified.
The hospital would not disclose any information about the victims.
The dog in the Concord attack on Monday was euthanized, officials said.
The Castro Valley incident occurred about 2 a.m. Tuesday. Alameda Sheriff’s Department Sgt. J.D. Nelson told KTVU that a pit bull-German Shepard mix was in custody of animal control, KTVU reported.
Nelson called the youngster’s injuries worse than those suffered by the 2-year-old Concord girl on Monday.
The Concord toddler was stable but faces a lengthy recovery, KTVU said.
The dog bit her on the head, face and leg, according to Animal Control. She was treated at the scene and then airlifted to the hospital.
The euthanized dog’s tissues were being tested for rabies, officials said.
Contra Costa Animal Services Lt. Joe De Costa told KTVU officials were investigating whether the Concord family had any knowledge of the dog having an aggressive history.
If that was the case, there's a potential that they could face some criminal charges. At this point, it doesn't appear that that is the case
WHAT DO ALL THE PITIOTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS
I WOULD BE WILLING TO BET THEY WILL EITHER BE SILENT FOR A WHILE OR MAKE COMPLETE ASSES OUT OF THEMSELVES
#138 May 8, 2012
This is enough of this breed preying on our children. everyone who is against children being killed needlessly needs to ban together to get this breed banned!
#139 May 9, 2012
I can't find your post now Can't Deny because you can't just post one thing you have to have 20 pages all to yourself. but in one of your post you said something along the lines of 250 pitbulls in 30 years or every year attack someone. these are children and adults alike. What about the amount of children each year that a victimised each year. Kidnapped, Raped, murdered. http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview...
A little known fact, principally because of the astronomical crime
rate in most major US cities, is that the United States is one of the
world's leaders in the number of kidnappings and extortions committed
annually. Recent FBI statistics indicate that there are approximately
500 kidnappings per year (many of those for ransom) and approximately
2000 extortions per year. These crimes are obviously a major problem
for law enforcement, and executives, in particular, have to remain
"security aware" to better protect themselves and their families."
What about those children? I have already stated that pitbulls aren't the perfect pet. But there are a lot of decent ones out there to. You all need to give it a rest. watch your god damn children and if your afriad of these dogs well then dont leave them at a babysitters that has one. and dont leave unattened. If your friend has one don't go over there. And if you own one then just dont blame anyone but yourselves if it attacks someone. This is complete bull crap. Just move on with your lives or get this stupid petition started so the rest of us can rally against you. children do not needlessy be killed, people just need to smarten up. grow up and take responsibility for your pets and your children. If you know you own a dangerous breed, be responsible. Watch your pets. If you did that this would never be an issue.
Hey here is an idea instead of making every thread on here about pitbull maulings how about we talk about how much we love our pets and have happy conversations, instead of everyone arguing over something that every hear has already heard 100x. This conversation is old move on. and can't deny I do post on other forums. trust me you are not my only interest.
#140 May 11, 2012
if it's so old why don't you move on
many children are HUNTED DOWN on the streets by loose pitbulls and pitbulls being walked on leashes i will post a fine example of that in a minute so try as someone may to keep their children away from pitbulls IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO DO SO
I WILL CHOOSE THE FIGHT I WANT TO FIGHT AND YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO CHOOSE THE FIGHT THAT YOU WANT TO FIGHT
WHY ARE YOU WASTING SO MUCH TIME RESPONDING TO ME WHEN YOU HAVE THIS OTHER MAJOR BATTLE TO WIN

Dazavious K. Williams
5-weeks old | Griffin, GA
Dazavious Williams, 5-weeks old, was snatched from his aunt's arms by a loose pit bull and fatally mauled. Apparently, two pit bulls had been chained at a nearby residence. An 8-year old boy had become "friendly" with the dogs and often released them from their chains. Investigators said that on the night of the fatal attack, the dogs were already unchained when the 8-year old boy approached. The black male pit bull started to chase him in an aggressive manner and he ran away. Shortly thereafter, the same pit bull approached 131 W. Tinsley St. and as Charisma Johnson was sitting on the porch holding her nephew, the pit bull snatched the child away. By the time police arrived, the toddler was going into cardiac arrest. The infant died from fatal head injuries sustained in the attack

Leashed Pit Bull Bites Through Chest Pack to Attack Baby on Sidewalk
How Safe Are You?
Lynn, MA - In one of the most chilling pit bull attacks DogsBite.org has read to date, it was reported last week that a leashed 2-year old, male neutered pit bull broke free from its young owner on a city sidewalk and attacked a child who was being carried by its father in a papoose chest pack. The dog nearly ripped the child's leg off. This unprovoked attack in a public setting shows just how vulnerable each of us is when in proximity to a pit bull -- leashed or otherwise.1
"It's a miracle the dog didn't take that kid's leg off," said animal control officer Kevin Farnsworth.
We invite readers to "sink your teeth" into this story as it perfectly describes the unpredictability of a pit bull attack and how the dog's owner is incapable of stopping it. The incident also shows just how "close" the average citizen is to a pit bull attack when they partake in their normal routines, such as taking a walk, going for a jog or taking out the trash. Horrible pit bull maulings often occur on public streets and within neighborhood settings, spaces one presumes as safe.2
"In the first incident, Brian and Leah Antaya of 11 Saunders St. were walking along Broadway at approximately 7:45 p.m., their 6-month-old daughter Eva nestled in the chest pack. Munnyhkkie Moutino3 and her companion, Rodolpho Ribas, were near 55 Broadway as the family approached. The woman's dog, McLovinn - a tan, 2-year-old, 61-pound neutered pit bull - lunged at the baby, locking its jaws onto the small body.
Brian Antaya told police it happened so fast he had no time to react. Although the strange dog was leashed, it was able to pull away from its owner, grab hold of the baby's left leg and tear into the calf. "The mom, dad and kid were walking down the street together when this dog just attacked. It jumped up and grabbed the baby's left leg," said Farnsworth. "It's a miracle the dog didn't take that kid's leg off."
The infant was taken to North Shore Children's Hospital in Salem and transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston where she was treated for multiple bite wounds. "The way I see it, the doctors at Mass General saved that little girl's life, but I'm sure there will be several more trips back and forth to the hospital," said Farnsworth, noting that the dog owner recently moved from Wenham to Lynn."
If ever faced with such circumstances -- an unknown, leashed pit bull, walking by you on a public street -- do you have a plan? Is the leash holder a teenager, a female or a 220 lb man? Is it a thick leash or a "retractable" one? Please make safety decisions accordingly. 23-year old Munnyhkkie Moutino could not control her pet pit bull. Nor could a mid 30s female whose leashed pit bull rushed into an oncoming train killing them both (the leash had been wrapped around her hand

Because no fight is going to win by posting your proof, opinion or comment on here. and you all keep forgetting that I have said several times that i believe your proof and I feel sorry for the victims, for every victim of any crime. And oh yes pitbulls just roam the streets looking for prey, and vampires and the easter bunny are real to. do you hear yourself you are so ridicoulus. they just randomly wonder the street looking for 8 month old children right? well I need to have a sit down with that parent and the owner of that dog because neither should be out alone. do you hear how stupid this all is. and the reason why I keep sticking up for myself and others is because if I stop posting you will go back to doing your childish little happy dance and typing " I win I win." so I rather not give you that satisfaction. just keep wasting your time posting facts. I already have heard it all. and I understand it I am not a heartless bitch. but I am also not going to sign your petition either because I know regardless of fact or not that for every bad there is a good dog. end of story.
#144 May 12, 2012
I WILL POST SEVERAL ACCOUNTS OF PITBULLS ROAMING THE STREETS LOOKING FOR PREY IN A MINUTE PITBULLS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR BREAKING CONFINEMENT EVEN SCALING 12 FOOT FENCES SO EVEN THE MOST RESPONSIBLE OF OWNERS CAN NOT CONTAIN THEM AND YOU SAYING THAT POSTING FACTS IS A WASTE OF TIME JUST SHOWS HOW IGNORANT YOU ARE

92-years old | Mead, OK
James Hurst, 92-years old, was brutally struck down by his neighbor's two pit bulls while doing what he loved, working in his front yard. Bryan County Undersheriff Kenneth Golden said of all the dog attacks he has worked, he has never seen one this bad. "It appears he was chewed and drug around the yard. It wasn't very pretty," Golden said. The victim's best friend, Levi Duncan, witnessed the aftermath of the mauling. "Both feet, his face, his ears. His lips were gone. He didn't even look like the same person," Duncan said. The two pit bulls had a history of getting out, according to Golden, but the incidents were not reported to police. Several neighbors, including a young boy, said they had face-to-face encounters with the aggressive dogs in the past. Though the attack was not witnessed, Bryan County Sheriff Bill Sturch confirmed that the pit bulls found on the scene had blood on them. Charges against the dogs' owners are pending

5-years old | Waxhaw, NC
Makayla Woodard, 5-years old, was killed by two pit bulls while in her front yard. Her grandmother, Nancy Presson, was severely injured trying to protect her. Michael Gordon, a convicted felon, owned both pit bulls. Neighbors said they had complained many times about Gordon's dogs running loose. Police said they warned Gordon at Christmas -- just a few weeks earlier -- to keep his dogs contained. At the time, Gordon admitted that his dogs, Rebel and Daisy, often managed to "hop the fence." Residents of Waxhaw were devastated by the incident. Hundreds attended Makayla's funeral, which began with the little girl's body carried in a horse drawn cart. After the funeral, town commissioners set up a panel to study the existing dog control law and to determine how to better handle potentially dangerous dogs. On January 26, Gordon turned himself into police after being charged with involuntary manslaughter
