Don't blame the breed, it's the owners that are the problem - the animals MUST be destroyed - My prayers are with the victim's family - Kudos to whomever shot and killed one of the dogs -

Again, we don't know the full story. She could have been neglecting them or abusing them. An animal will turn on you after taking so much. That is so horrible. I can't even imagine that. My prayers go out to the family.

In the news story they said that someone shot one and the other ran away,so how could that be inside her fence??

Man, I am so sorry for the loss of the lady and the dogs. What could have gone wrong when you have owned these two dogs for so long? Were they ever abused by the owner or her son? Were they ever trained to fight? Make me wonder. Several attacks this year have been reported. I have friends who had Bit Bulls all their lives and never had a problem with them. I just don;t understand it.

Why don't we go ahead and continue the proliferation of this wonderful docile breed... So many folks think this breed is harmless and that the problem lies with the owners or some one else.

BUNK! The breed is vicious and deadly. I say shoot on sight!

In 99% of these cases, humans are to blame. Many of you may know this, but many dont. Pit bulls are often "line bred" which could be a father bred to a daughter, brother to sister, mother to son and so on and so on. This is done to creat a "hot" litter intended for fighting. Let's say there is a litter of 9 puppies. Most of them will go to people looking for "hot" dogs, but the few that are left over are often given away or go to shelters and they have no idea that the cute litte puppy is an inbred puppy. Needless to say, their DNA is all screwed up which often is the cause of their aggressiveness. Punish the moronic fools who breed these dogs for fighting. Just like guns, they are only dangerous when they are in the hands of irrisponsible humans!! And for all you fools who think pit bulls are dangerous just because they are "pit bulls" Do a little research before you open your uneducated mouth!

I hate to see this happen, but i am a pitt bull owner and have hade my dogs for years and never had them attempt to hurt anyone. i have small children that the dogs are around all the time. my dogs are family dogs they sleep in our beds...... There are reasons these dogs attack abuse/neglect i hate that this gives them such a bad name

You are absolutely right Pete. The breed is only dangerous when they are bred by and are raised by irrisponsible people

Now we will hear all the excuses from the Pit Bull owners.
Such as:
a)These were not real Pit Bulls.
b)There is no such thing as a Pit Bull breed.
c)The owner must have trained them to kill.
d)The owner must have abused them.
e)The owner was trespassing on their own property
f)The owner must have tried to eat the Pits food.
g)The owner had them caged-up all the time.
h)The police reported this wrong.
i)The news rerporters did not report the story accurately.
j)Why did the officers have too kill these wonderful pets?
Did I forget any...
This is just another very sad story that did not have to happen.
