There was no snapping by the dog dog and boy.were.acctually playing boys face and dog face too.close.resultung in an accident which caused injury dog did not eat but swallowed completly different. Dog was a large dog and just still a.playful baby. This was NOT the actions of owner mis raising dog. This was boy and a pet playing too rough and an accident happened. Please stop bashing a wonderful breed withou facts and stop bashing good families for an accident this is awful enough for both families just pray for them both. Accidents like this is very possible despite what some want to think.

I have a wonderful pit! She is great around all dogs and kids! Never bite or anything and we even play rough with her but she is TRAINED!!! We raised her to be a great dog not a fighter. It's all how u raise them. Google dog attacks. It's not just pits! You all agree with the media and its the only thing influencing your choice. Do some damn research before you judge a breed of dog!!!!

There is NOONE to blame. There is NOTHING to blame ACCIDENTS don't mean blame is needed..kids are.kids and dogs.are.dogs.and this same result.of kid playing with.dog and same injury happen.with any.dog breed but because.its a pit everyone.is.screaming attack and bad owners it could have.been any.other breed and noone would be as negative.

<quoted text>Answer me this: Did they have to have surgery to retrieve the child's nose? If so, then the dog bite and swallowed the kids nose. Nobody said the dog was making a meal out of it by "eating" it. I think what you are really trying to debate is the word "accident" and your personal interpretation of it. I don't think anybody is saying that the dog made a conscience decision to harm this child but it happened. It happens more often with this breed of dogs than any other. Accidents happen. One way this possibly could have been prevented would have been to NOT let "this boy and dog play TOO ROUGH" AND/OR NOT allow "the boys face to face with dog". <<<those were YOUR words and you "claim" to know the facts. Somebody is to blame in ALL types of accidents ( including the car wreck you used as an example earlier.) So, if the dogs not to blame and the child's not to blame and the owners not to blame, WHO'S TO BLAME?
"YOU'RE" A DUMB ASS! Learn more about animals. "Mr. Animal lover" lol

Do not challenge an animal. Staring into an animals eyes threatens the animal. And if he was so Vicious then why didn't he bite the kids nose off that lived there all this time. Instead he bit an outsider that had threatened his territory. And to make matters worse he was staring at him and I'm sure he was feeling protective over his owner and their kid.

Men instinctively are sexual creatures and are known to rape, so with that logic we should kill every man because he MIGHT rape.

It's in their blood after all. It's their genetic make up.

We are talking about dogs. I do not think you should kill off the breed, I just think the sale and trade of this breed should be regulated.

<quoted text> oh so if your in a car wreck and it.kills.someone it isn't an accident. I personally know both families and it was an accident. Choose to believe what you will but accidents happen and this was the result.of one and it wasn't actually bitten off. I should know I know all.parties involved and this was AN ACCIDENT that truth will.com e out. News is portraying this as much more than it is and they aren't reporting all the story. I've known both families for years now I knew the dog this was NO ATTACK as so many of you want to judge it as. So get some sense. Before passing this judgment of the owners and the boys family just know your not only hurting the boy but his friends that owned and loved their family pet. There are children hurt over this and peoples negativity not only are you victimizing the.boy but other children involved in this so y don't all.of u negative people think twice about all parties involved and who else u may be hurting or even hurting the boy more. He.loved this dog also ever think of that. Grow up.people. all either family needs or wants is for.people.to stop spreading rumors and just pray for both families.
So the boys nose was accidently bitten off? when an animal attacks without provocation it is not an accident. When an animal attacks it is due to some stimulus that make it do so,either learned or genetically ingrained in that animal.So lets get this straight,it was not an accident.

Its an incident not an accident!An accident is if the dog was in a tree and fell out of it and injured the boy by happenstance.

So if the same thing happens to your child( and got forbid and hoping it doesn't) you still would defend this breed and allow it around your children? I work with alot of young men who have had pitbulls and told me the same thing( they are harmless and would not bite anybody)but in 9 out of 10 cases they did bite their child or spouse and were gotten rid of.

Instead he bit an outsider that had threatened his territory. And to make matters worse he was staring at him and I'm sure he was feeling protective over his owner and their kid.[/QUOTE] JUst the facts said that the dog was playing with the child then bit him because he was starin him in the face. I have a great dane and when I stare at him(like I am doing now) he averts his gaze. Why would you want an animal that you could not control or would attack any one who stared at it? I ve been bitten by one of these dogs. I was just walking in the street with my son and it broke thru a plate glass door to get to us. it attached it self to my chest and I could only got it to release when I broke its back on a telephone pole! So before you start calling people dumbasses try some of my type of research and get into a life threatening struggle with one of these animals. I bet you will change your mind. P.S. And I am a dog lover too.

I have known this child all his life. He is very loving and kind little boy. To animals and people. He would never do anything to harm an animal.

If you let your kids play with your semi-automatic rifle, and they're very responsible and safe with it, and would never think of hurting anyone, but they kill someone by accident, do you think you have an excuse, just because it was an accident? Even if it was just a freak accident that was almost impossible? What if the kids put the weapon on the table, and a cat jumped on it, and it discharged because of a freak accident triggered by the cat? Does that give you an excuse to let your kids play with it? And so sorry to the deceased, but it wasn't your fault? And if the cops come to confiscate the weapon to test it as evidence, are you going to let them take it from your cold dead fingers? Or are you going to give it to them like a civilized person would? The kind of person who would never own a pit bull under any circumstances.

Staring into a dog's eyes or any other such behavior that triggers felony violence is not the fault of the person who stares. It's the fault of the owner of the dog. The owner deserves to be in jail for having a lethal weapon running loose in their yard where neighborhood kids can provoke it to attack them.

Sounds to me like you or your kid pissed the dog off at one time or another so he got his revenge.

There is a reason most insurance companies will not allow the policy owners to have these "aggressive" breeds of dogs. The insurance companies have also researched it and found that the dogs attack more than any other so if they find you have one they will more than likely drop you.

I am an active insurance agent and I have a pit in my home. And this happens to be my third one that I have owned. So by all means please stop lying and giving bad feedback about pitbulls and insurance policies that you know nothing about. Thank You
