Default How to Get Rid of Pit Bulls

Hire Michael Vick. What a freaking loser. I hope the SOB hangs.

About eight young dogs were put to death after they were found not ready to fight in April 2007. They were killed "by hanging, drowning and/or slamming at least one dog's body to the ground," according to the indictment.

I believe I'll wait for the movie to come out.
However, it does seem at this point that no one actually knows who the stars might be.

Let’s not fool ourselves ; pit bulls are dangerous

Oh, the fun we were going to have today. Laughs? Lots of ’em.

First thing Monday morning, I intended to write about the silly throngs of people who turned up at Sunday’s Neptune Festival Art and Craft Show sporting Paris Hilton-style, hamster-sized dogs.

Then I heard what happened in Suffolk. Dog jokes didn’t seem very funny anymore.

Sure, microscopic mutts can be amusing. Nippy, too. But they don’t kill.

Which is more than you can say for pit bulls, hard-wired to fight.

Looks like it’s happened again. Police say a family pet has killed a child.

If you have a pit bull or a pit-bull mix, do all of us a favor. Get rid of your unpredictable beast before it attacks someone.

If you have children and can’t decide between your offspring and your pit bull, send your children to live with relatives who don’t keep an aggressive breed of dog.

Spare me the nurture-v s.-nature nonsense. Don’t waste your breath – or my e-mail space – with heartwarming tales about your lovable pit bull. I don’t really want to know that it’s so sweet you kiss it on the mouth or let it nap with the baby in the bassinet.

Frankly, those stories give me the creeps. Besides, I heard them all last time I wrote about pit bulls. That was in 2001, after an 11-year-old Beach girl was savagely attacked by her neighbor’s pet.

Yes, cocker spaniels are responsible for more bites than pit bulls. But they aren’t responsible for more deaths. And that’s the point.

Pit bulls have been busy this year. So far, they’ve killed at least two other people in the United States.

According to CBS news and The Associated Press, a 42-year-old St. Louis man was mauled to death in May by one or both of his two beloved pit bulls with “no apparent history of aggression.”

In June, CBS and The AP reported that a 12-year-old San Francisco boy was killed by his family’s “friendly” pit bulls. Officials reckoned that the dogs might have been stressed out because the family was getting ready to move, or because the female was in heat.

Excuses.

Just as neighbors invariably describe a man who went berserk and killed his family as a “quiet guy who kept to himself,” pit bulls that maul children are always described as “gentle.”

Until they aren’t anymore.

It’s all about the breed, folks.

Responsible dog owners pick pets that will be compatible with their lifestyles.

Size, appearance and temperament are all in the genes. Name a breed and your vet can tell you what to expect without even meeting your prospective puppy.

It’s no accident that Labrador retrievers are the most popular breed of dog in America. They tend to be affectionate, playful and gentle with children.

Pit bulls are not.

Those powerful jaws and that muscular build have a purpose: fighting.

A dog like that does not belong in bed with children.

Jurisdictions all across the country have attempted to outlaw pit bulls and other aggressive dog breeds. It almost never works.

So let’s try the next best thing – vigilance. If there’s a pit bull or a pit-bull mix in your neighborhood, stay away from it.

Never let it near your children. Even – or maybe especially – if the owner insists it won’t bite.

One bite and you're out! Moore lawmaker wants felony charges on first dog bite

by: Staff reports
7/16/2007 11:20 AM

OKLAHOMA CITY -- State Rep. Paul Wesselhöft has drafted legislation for next year's session that makes it a felony for first-time dog bites.

"This marks a paradigm shift, a dramatic change, in canine jurisprudence," said Wesselhöft, R-Moore. "If passed, this law will become model legislation for other states that have been plagued with vicious dog attacks, especially from the pit bull breed."

"Pit bull breeders have the voraciously criticized me for picking on their innocent breed and not going after the owner; so now, I am going after the owners.

Wesselhöft said prosecutors in Oklahoma operate under the "first bite is free" principle - until a dog is proven dangerous as the result of a documented attack, owners generally can't be held criminally liable.

Wesselhöft's bill would establish a felony for owners of dogs that seriously maul, maim or kill on the first attack.

The owner of a dog that causes serious injury after an unprovoked attack would face a felony punishable by a mandatory year in prison. A fatal attack could put the owner behind bars for an extended period of time. Both offenses carry fines of $10,000.

The Moore lawmaker said his bill has enough safeguards to ensure that "little Fluffy and Fido don't get on the 'doggy's most wanted list' for something as innocent as an errant nip or a playful bite." The bill would only apply to attacks occurring outside the pet owner's property and attacks that cause serious injury-defined as multiple bites or severe bite wounds or severe ripping, shredding or tearing of muscle that would cause a reasonable prudent person to seek treatment from a medical professional and would require hospitalization.

Negligence or prior knowledge of aggression would also result in charges.

"I don't want to criminalize every dog bite," said Wesselhöft. "I want to deal with the truly dangerous animals that people have failed to take responsibility for that are wreaking havoc throughout our state."

In Wesselhöft's estimation, Oklahoma has experienced an epidemic of serious dog attacks during the last few years, particularly from pit bulls

. Wesselhöft emphasizes that his bill is not breed specific. However, if this bill becomes law, Wesselhöft predicts it will curtail the pit bull population because "people will think twice before buying a pit bull knowing that they will be a convicted felon wallowing in prison for a year if their dog seriously injures someone."

That is a violent way to get rid of those nasty dogs. On the farm, I could drop a dog with a 22 and a good scope with one shot at a real good distance. Those inhumane bastards!
