Another day, another trashy pitbull mauls someone. If it were up to me I would destroy all of these monsters. I know there will be some idiot that says they are a sweet dog. Get a clue. All these dogs promoote are thuggish behavior, and crime. Only low-life trash associates with this breed. I wish one would try to attack me, and I had a bat. I would take great pleasure in beating one of these evil dogs to a pulp. Kill em all!

The owners should be shot . But I can bet you the owner or owners of these dogs have a lower IQ level than the dogs.

What a shame that the hospitals in S.C. are so bad that a person would have her family drive her all the way to Charlotte for medical help........

Wish I had a bat for you, I would take pleasure beating an illerate, close minded, mis-informed jerk like you. It's the way that they are raised, tortured, abused, starved, beaten, and thrown into pits where they have to fight or die. You would maul anything that you saw too. Better yet, the bat is too good for you...

I see all the Michael "Ookie" Vick fans are out in full force tonight~!

Investigation of Vick leads to South Carolina
At least one state prisoner interviewed in case, link unclear
By Ohm Youngmisuk - New York Daily News

Tant is currently serving a 40-year sentence in a South Carolina state prison after being charged with 41 counts of dogfighting and one count of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, while Vick and three others were charged last week in federal court in Virginia with conspiracy to sponsor dogfighting. Tant's sentence is believed to be one of the heaviest ever involving dogfighting.

40 years in jail. Was this guy a big time drug dealer or murderer. Did this sentence fit the crime.
I remember a man got mauled and died in Winnsboro, SC. The owner didn't
do any time in jail.

Yea, he murdered 41 dogs. Drugs, wouldn't you need to be wacked out of your mind on drugs to endure something like a dog fight? Is it a given? I don't know.

Funny, how some people just don't get it about how serious dog fighting really is. It is a flawed moral fiber crime. To me, and apparently the SC Lawmakers, the penalty fits. I digress.

I don't know any of the details other than what was in that article. I do know it is a state felony to dog fight as well as ATTEND ONE.

I am not a fan of PETA but they will pay up to 5,000 dollars for tips that lead to a conviction of dog fighters.

Have any of you been thru Rembert? And I say, THRU as you dont want to stop in that PIT of a town. No doubt, they were fighting dogs. That little town is infested with drugs, thugs and filth! Says to go 25mph there. Take your chances at that speed limit. Ur safest bet is to glide thru there at a mere 55 and take your chances at a ticket. Chances are, the police are throwing someone over the hood of their car anyway for something else. Rembert should be burnt!

Not the dogs fault. Its the owners. These animals havent a chance the way they are raised.

One more time - these dogs AND THEIR OWNERS need to be neutered before they hurt or kill someone

Which only exemplifies the point that these dogs have no understanding to rationalize the situation unlike other breeds. It also exemplifies the point that you believe these dogs in this case were used for dogfighting... otherwise, why else suggest they were treated so badly.
These dogs were bred historically for one purpose, and domestication is not that reason. I love all dogs, but sorry... not pit bulls. They don't even deserve bats... Bullets are faster. Michael Vick was doing the country a favor, so they should let him go back to business as usual.

I agree the bat comment was a little harsh. But, pit bulls are vicious animals pure and simple. It is unfortunate that most are treated terribly as your comment states, but the fact is, even raised to be the domesticated pet, they can/will turn on any person or other animal. It's in their genes to fight and be aggresive, it's imprinted in their instinct. There are several countries, most notable in western Europe, that has banned these animals for good reason. The United States is always the last country to act upon laws to protect people and other living things. There is no easy solution to this problem. Being an animal lover, eradicating the species would not be an option to me, but the truth is, these animals have injured and killed innocent people and other pets.
