Over and over it is pit bulls doing the maiming and
killing. And yet there are pit bull owners that insist
their dogs are the sweetest dogs in the world. Ha!
There must be some genes in pit bulls that cause them
and perhaps not all of them that causes them to be
vicious. And there is no way to know which ones will
respond to the desire to attack.
There is something amiss with this breed of dog.

I really don't understand why these animals aren't outlawed all together. They are a menace to any community. Its really sad.

Sad and completely unforeseen that a pit bull would attack.

The thing that kills me is that there are so many different breeds out there to choose from. Maybe some people have these dogs because they have low self esteem and think they will be the ones that will raise the perfect sweet pit bull. Like the woman that marries the known abusers thinking they will change them. They should absolutely outlaw these dogs!

How about mandatory lobotomy's at birth to make them very very gentle.

This is indeed a very sad story; the loss of life is tragic condolences to the family. These dogs seem to be a continual source of unprovoked attacks against their handlers/owners and unsuspecting neighbors. I am a staunch advocate of our rights but when other innocent people are potentially (and it seems often) put in harms way simply by the presence of these animals something needs to be done. Enough is enough.

How much more evidence do people need to see that owning a pitbull is irresponsible (breeding them even worse)? We don't allow people to own tigers, lions, etc without permits... so why the hell are pitbulls stil mainstream? We need to phase them out. Humanely euthanize the breed.

Lobotomy at birth is the only way to make these dogs gentle.

That's why these dogs should be banned, just like lions or tigers. They are dangerous animals that cannot be domesticated. How many times does this have to happen before we do ban them.

There is no way anyone in the world could ever convince me that their pit bull is the sweetest most wonderful dog that wouldn't even harm a flea. This story alone is proof positive that there is something within the dog's genetic structure that could cause them to turn on their owner, or anyone, in an instant, without any provacation. What a horrible way for that poor woman to die. This breed should definitely be outlawed.

I am sure there are many pits who live out their lives without hurting a fly...and I am sure there are many dog owners who are experienced with pits and can control them and understand them. However, many people do not understand this breed and do not want to take any responsibilities in supervising,training and socializing their dogs, and the dog ends up getting loose and attacks someone.

I'm betting the lady that was just mauled to death used to defend this breed too. I'm betting her 2 dogs were the "sweetest, most gentle, most loyal" dogs around too. Until they weren't.

What a way to go. How tragic to witness something like this. Condolences to the family.
Just yesterday I saw a kid on a bike carrying a pit pup and I got chills just thinking of about the scenario.

There are many types of "bulls" out there. Do not get them confused with the Pit.... many people do.

For all the pit bull haters, please name a breed of dog that is guaranteed to hurt nobody. I know someone who got bitten pretty badly by a poodle.

Play with fire, you are going to get burnt.

Pit bulls are not and never will be pets.

Better her than some innocent neighbor or child.
