Pit bulls attacked and fatally wounded an 18-month-old child in an apartment in West Haven, Conn., authorities said.

The attack occurred Friday evening while the child was laying on a blanket on the floor of one room of the third-floor apartment, the New Haven Register reported. The dogs had been in another room but somehow got out. It wasn't clear whether anyone else was in the room when the attack occurred.

Pit bulls should be eradicated from the Earth. There should be a bounty on them. Owners should be given 90 days to destroy all their dogs and then armed people should be given free reign to eliminate the manipulated breed, that has absolutely no reason to be alive other than mauling innocents periodically.

So sad,a child this time!...been fighting those Crazy bastards who keep these murderous animals.They have no place in our society1..they maim,and kill a lot of people...Very Quietly.each year1....Those animal rights groups are the ultimate LOONS...Like loaded guns,they endanger people..Often the kids and the elderly!

Only people with some demented mind would harbor these,like Pythons,Poisonous snakes, and other wild animals like gators,Big cats...INSANITY!!

In inner cities,or in rural areas,they do terrible damage to people

The Owners are to blame of course.However no real laws regarding this are in effect!..at least with no teeth in them!

Really should be out lawed!

Protect the innocents!!...Out Law PIT BULL MONSTERS...along with the big jawed dogs!

I never seen a pit bull cross an old blind old lady across the street!!

There should be a $10,000/year fee on all pit bull or part pit bull dogs.

Those who say the dogs are innocent are correct. It is their breeding, their nature, to kill things. The dogs are not guilty, just evil.

Those "dog lovers" who say pit bulls are really nice dogs who only attack when mis-trained or mistreated should be locked in a backyard with these three murderous beasts.

I raised lots of dogs,mostly beagles,various bird dogs and king shepherds...I was once given a puppy,a Rottweiler..raised him,but as he realized his strengths,and his powerful jaws,he became less quick to respond..had Small kids then.I came to the realization this dog would look me right in the eyes,none of the averted stare,like he was telling me " GO AHEAD,MAKE MY DAY'...I made his day first,and got rid of him.Beautiful animal?Yes,but i instinctively felt it was a matter of time....the "LAW OF THE CLUB AND FANG "was needed here...But let someone else do it!

The shepherds can be trained.To attack,or to lead blind people...But the breeds like the Presa Canario,unlike the American Pit bull,are confirmed KILLERS!...its this breed that is most deadly!! this Breed of all the breeds, should be Destroyed,and banned!

If these were still wild animals I would say they have every right to exist IN THE WILD as any other creature. Any dog can & will bite, but certain "domesticated" breeds and have been specifically breed to enhance their natural aggressive tendancies. It's time we DO eliminate these proven dangerous breeds.

As I indicated above, they attacked the infant because it is their nature to kill things. That is their breeding. They cannot help themselves.
INSTINCT.

Only a fool would think they can raise a wild animal breed for their natural agressive killer instincts.

At least this time it was their own kid that was killed and not some innocent bystander.

I shoot EVERY loose dog that I see, and I always carry my pistol when walking or riding my bike through the countryside.

Well, come to our town then. you'll be shooting quite a few, I will tell you that!
So many vicious dogs running loose in this town. Pitbulls are known to be aggressive to other dogs and humans too. Yes, the Presa Canario hae been known to kill people. Rottweilers have the same lockjaw as the pitbulls do. German Shepherds can be very aggressive too to other dogs and humans. Chows are aggressive to other dogs too.
We had a dog who was part Shepherd. When we got a new puppy that dog wanted to kill the puppy!
But yet, in this town there's so many people who have these vicious breeds who just let them run loose & don't put them on a chain or put them inside a fence or anything!
This is a dangerous town to come to, if you want to walk around because of that!

You are people are the largest bunch of ignoramouses I have ever had the pleasure of laughing at. PITBULLS WERE THIS COUNTRY'S NANNY DOG FOR DECADES YOU MORONS. They are highly trainable and when trained incorrectly, ANY dog will attack - including your little shitshu, LuLu who has bitten more trainers than any large breed dog ever has - and more children. Your college education is worthless because you believe everything you read and have no substantial life experience except that which you follow along to in church or school - mindless thinking at it's best. Pit Bulls are not evil. You are. As previously stated you are also incredibly ignorant And stupid. Take your high class, snooty asses back inside your houses and rot there - and make sure to take your abusive-pupply-mill-bred, wasted-money-paid-for pocket pooch with you.

The point is, they mostly aren't "trained correctly" and they are still KILLER ANIMALS.

Why, Jersey Girl, were they bred in the first place?

What do you suppose the pit in pit bull means?
I love animals, and I wish you were right, but if the pit bulls are were killed tomorrow,m we'd still have dog pounds full of unwanted dogs.

Pit Bulls are like cobras.
