You can rest assure the BOY first indimadated the dog. Its almost always the case, parents should teach children not to go near dogs they dont know. The parents are the ones responsible. The dram driven media, never mentions that part of the story! Better story if innocent children get eaten, right?

It's funny how German Shepherds get a bad rap for attacking people. Oh, my mistake I meant to say Pit Bulls. Wait, that's right, the media only reports dog attacks that involve Pit Bulls. I'm sure there are some great ones out there but why would you ever consider one and risks someone's life?

How many more of these horrible stories will we hear? All these idiots who own these dogs and are irresponsible. Why was the dog not on a leash? I have seen so many scrawny idiots being pulled by their dogs on a leash. If you can't control the dog, don't get it! It is not the dog's fault, it is always the owner's fault!!

Not surprised, these are the meanest dogs on the planet, and to think people felt sorry for the dogs that Michael Vick killed..they would have eventually done the same thing that this dog did to that poor little boy. All Pit Bulls should be put to death.

Is there some unwritten law that states that only nitwits can own pit bulls?

What's the deal with these people? What are they compensating for?

The dog shouldn't be blamed - that's what big dogs do when riled up.

So that some idiot could feel good about having a big powerful dog, which he was incompetent to handle, this kid was nearly killed.

The welfare checks are made out to the dog. He's the only one with valid papers.

Why do we have these beasts around any way? I mean, in our society any person who voices thier hatred of dogs is immediately scorned as inhumane. I say take all dogs off the streets now.

Yet another Pitbull attack. No it wasn't a Poodle, or a Husky or a German Shepard or a Collie, it was another Pitbull ! All Pitbulls need to be rounded up NOW and Euthanized. If the breed acts like a killer and looks like a killer and smells like a killer and kills like a killer, then its a killer. A killer that's no different than a bomb or the Ebola virus or Small Pox, or the Hunta Virus or Anthrax. Pitbulls are worthless, mindless killers that will eat human babies for lunch and dinner and they will continue to harm and kill our children no matter what you lonely insecure animal lovers who would rather have an emotional bond with a dog than a human have to say.

A tragedy? Absolutely, for the child as well as for dogs in general. I've known a large number of pits. Some have been great dogs, others....well, the others have been the same as the dangerous dogs I've known of many other breeds (the exception being that pits are so powerful that the damage they do can be considerable). If people took the time to educate themselves about the needs of whatever breed they choose to have---if they would take the time to ask themselves whether they really have the money, time, space and desire to provide a dogs with everything it needs---well, what are you going to do? People see puppies and they just don't think. I'm betting this dog was never given the love and respect due to all living creatures.

Sorry--but pits are not the number one biters/attackers. They suffer from bad publicity. Before you round up all of your pits and euthanize them, you better take care of the breeds that consistently bite more people every year than any other breeds (in this order) 1-chihuahua 2-dachshund 3-beagle. Yep--You'll have to kill snoopy first.
