Once again we have seen the increase in pit bull attacks, 2011 was an extreme example of an epidemic. The CDC is now compiling more studies about the increasing and alarming epidemic. Out of curiosity I Googled "pit bull attacks 2012" and I cannot believe the numbers of reports of attacks and fatalities so far in 2012. On April 5th there was a 7 year old in his own yard, mauled. The SPCA stated that the lovely pit bull showed no signs of aggression during testing for adoption. While pit bulls killed 22 of 31 people who died from dog attacks in 2011, only 4 died from attacks from rottweilers. Amazing statistics. After viewing all of the news reports and reading the articles I now side with the man in our town that want these animals banned. How do we get this done?

A seven year old attacked. It is debatable if pit bull will be put down.

It has been months since the last post and the numbers are staggering. In a recent poll within Mount Holly alone there have been 37 reports of pit bull "bites" of people. Two more mauling. The numbers of pit bulls in this town are also on the rise. Do we really have that much more drug activity or prostitution to be guarded by pit bulls here? Scary town! Gaston County's new pit bull head quarters.

Another elderly woman brutally attacked by a family pit bull this week, twice in the same day. Never before had that pit bull attacked anyone by all accounts. Similar story...

Think that a person that would shoot a dog for no reason would perhaps do just about anything. You can't fix stupid but you can sure lock them up.
Truly believe that some people on Topix are so sexually frustrated that their only solace is to get online and take out their frustrations. It doesn't take a "Brain" surgeon to "Observe" those with "issues".:-)

It is sad to watch brutality, and knowing that people hate other people so much they willingly choose to have specifically bred animals such as pit bulls to attack other people. Pit bull owners are people haters, plain and simple.

Well, what type of dog should someone own if they want to be considered a people lover?

I dont see how the ownership of one type of dog makes someone a "people hater". Explain why some judges, lawyers, policemen, firemen, doctors, teachers, and preachers own them.

Are you saying that pits are specifically bred to attack people?

Pits are selected for fighting because of one trait that they have. They lock their jaws and shake to do more damage.Sharks and pits are the only animals that do this.If you own a pit and you think that he will not resort back to his natural instincts, think again.Every pit owner should own a prystick to open their jaws in case of emergency.My dog just got attacked by a pit and the owner paid the vet bill.WHY WOULD YOU BRING A PIT TO A DOG PARK IF YOU KNEW HE HAD PROBLEMS? judges,lawyers,policemen,firem en,doctors,teachers and preachers are just like emergency workers! Some of them dont have their head screwed on straight If you own a pit and you dont know this.God Bless YOU!

GEEZ! Your ignorance is astounding!

ALL dogs shake their heads when they bite. It can be observed in ANY dog when they are playing with a chew toy. Pitbulls CANNOT lock their jaw, and this is scientifically proven! They have NO MECHANISM for locking the jaw. Pitbulls dont bite any harder than a dog of similar size.

With that being said, pitbull are selected for fighting for a couple different reasons. 1) They have a very high pain tolerance. 2) They dont give up easily. 3) They are easily trained. 4) They are usually extremely loyal to their owners and will do anything to make their owner happy. If they are trained to fight and get rewarded for killing another dog, they will fight until their heart stops beating, all because they are trying to make their owner happy. Its makes me sick!

A dog that will bite a man isnt sought after to be a fighting dog, because the dog has to be easily and safely handled by humans during a fight. If a dog is in an organized fight, and it bites the "referee", it is automatically disqualified, and the owner will usually kill it. It is not the dog's fault if it is owned by a sick, demented, monster of a person. Dog fighters kill a losing or biting dog by electrocution, burning them, shooting them, hanging them, stomping them. They are a very sick group of people.

All dogs are natural predators. And all dogs have the instincts. This is where socialization and training comes into play. Breeding also has alot to do with aggression.

The fear mongers, and the widespread ignorance in this nation has demonized the American Pitbull Terrier. The Pitbull was once known as "America's Dog" and the "Nanny". Pits are more often than not, misidentified in police and news reports.

I agree that a person shouldnt bring a dog to a park if it has problems with other dogs being around. The guy who paid your vet bill, no matter if he is a nice guy, is a bad owner. His ignorance of the breed should disqualify him from ownership. Guys like HIM are why pits attack. You should have sued.

My pitbull is a highly trained and certified service dog. We visit hospitals and retirement homes in the area to comfort the residents.

I hope you are smart enough to own a break stick. Your dog might lose their temper one day.You was not at the dog park that day when my dog was attacked.The owner could not believe his dogs behavior and I was shocked.The pit would not let go,even after a dozen fist blows to the head!If it makes you feel better about owning a pit? Go ahead.

It doesn't help to read articles on a weekly and sometimes daily basis about these animals and their owners.

Mr logic is apparently a dog fight owner and trainer. Everyone beware of his postings. The mentality is very dangerous. He also has said he has kids. What a shame. That is what happens when they are allowed to reproduce.

You are 100% correct, there is a chain of thinking when it comes to law enforcement with pit bulls. They always blame the victims, even the county sherriff. Unfortunately elected officials like those in Mount Holly do not have the guts to stand up to pit bull owners, the owners are bullies like the dogs and the officials feel threatened by the owners to do anything about them. The cowboy mentality of law enforcement does not allow them to be normal and think of safety from these dogs.
