Default Two Pit Bulls Kill Lab

Saw this on another site and thought it should be posted here also

http://hamptonroads.com/2009/01/two-...lys-dog-killed


Please take a second and sign the online petition which will hopefully get these laws changed.

depends on how the owner raised the pits...not always the dogs' fault. I have living proof. I've got a lab that would have those two pits for a snack and anyother dog that dared to venture in her territory.

Terrible situation nevertheless - I would have to go after the owner.

Bad link on the petition...

You must be smoking far to much weed if you can vision any owner(s) of Pit Bulls to train their dogs to isolate "only" sick/ weak animals, hunt them down and shred them.

What a stupid law the county/ state has. Basically what the county/ state is saying is it's alright for the owners of dangerous dogs to allow their dogs to kill someone "IF" it only happens once. dahhhhhhhh

Not going to waste my time going back and forth with you on this so I'll leave on this note. A dog can't tell the difference between a sick and well dog - all they know it's another dog and it goes into attack mode if it's trained that way. Thus the responsibility goes back to the owner for imbedding that thought process in them i.e. trained to kill - just like police dogs are trained to attacked criminals. You may not be a criminal but all an officer has to do is give the dog a command and he will tear you from limb to limb. Thus pit bulls are trained to fight other dogs - no exclusions - a dog is a dog is a dog - whether it's 50 lbs. or 150 lbs it will attack putting all fear aside. It's the burden of the owner.

It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out....

And no I don't smoke weed....geez...

I don't agree with the law either.

You are right here Garett. If you ask any owner of a vicious breed they all say its how they are raised - not inate to the breed. But when they kill a child or another dog they change their tune - all of a sudden its the breed - they had no control. Very sad situation.

I find it disturbing that the pit bull owner would not put those pitbulls down. I have only had Goldens and BlackLabs at one time or another, and if they everattacked a child,or did what these pitbulls did to those fleeing dogs, my dog thatdid thatwould be put down. Period.

A dog that would do that, could not ever be trusted ever.Believe me.....I love dogs, and as much as I want to, Inever have fully trusted any of them.

I tell you, being exposed to only a couple pit bulls in my life, with thoughts of those dogs, I think it would take a whole pack of Labs to shred a pit bull. Now two of'em may do some damage, shred and ear, poke a few holes here and there. But them pit bulls ain't normal dogs, they don't feel pain, or they don't care if they feel pain. Once it gets it's jaws locked on one of the labs, the other lab would have to chew him in two, to make him let go.

In my area which is rural, we don't have a big problem with pit bulls or any other dogs, we know all the nieghbors and we know most all the dogs by sight and name. The biggest problem we have is a chocolate lab up the road that is an escape artist, gets out, goes over for a muddy swim/bath in my next door nieghbors pond, then likes to come over to my house to see just how many muddy paw prints she can put on my clean blue jeans. Kinda aggrivating but the old dog don't have a mean bone in her body. I am more worried about her getting hit by a car on the road, than any trouble she causes.

Had a nieghbor a few years ago with a HUGE rotty, chasing my little kitty cat, the cat jumps ontop of my car. The rotty proceeded to try to eat the car, over $1000 damage. Literally he chewed the grill off the car, the plastic bumper cover was nearly knawed in half. I run the dog off, went to the nieghbors showed him the car, told him keep the dog penned or he would be "disappeared". Filed claim on insurance, nieghbor paid my deductible, should have made him pay the whole cookie, but I was feeling nice. Turns out couple months later, some one else "disappeared" the dog. Wasn't me, but I happen to know that he was in fact "disappeared".

What?!? You're a 'good' dog?



Pit Bulls need to be phased out.

All existing pit bulls should be chipped and certified as chipped by a lic'd vet. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

Any unchipped pit bull should be immediate exterminated.

NO breeding pit bulls. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

NO transferring of pit bulls. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

NO importing of pit bulls. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

ANYONE that owns one must keep to confined at ALL TIMES. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

ANYONE that takes their pit bull out of confinement should have it muzzled. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

ANYONE that owns a pit bull should have a minimum of $1-million liability insurance to cover potential medical costs of victims. Make it a crime with fine and prison time.

POLICE should be given cart blanche immunity to shoot and kill any pit bull not confined and/or muzzled, for any reason or no reason.

CITIZENS should be given a $50 bounty for every unconfined pit bull they kill.



That should cut down on the damages and injuries caused by any pit bulls and in 15-years or so the whole problem should be gone, no more pit bulls.

FWIW, there are a few countries that flat out do not allow pit bull ownership or importation for any reason. Amazingly, they also do not have anyone injured by pit bulls. Humm, I wonder why that is ...

If pit bulls killed my dog, I would blow their heads off with a shotgun in front of the owners.

Obviously the 'victim' provoked the attack.

Let me see anything in my yard, and I will show you what a fully auto MP5 will do to it. Screw those dogs, they are worthless and should be shot on sight. It may be true that humans developed this breed, but what is done is done.

It is the owner's fault. They shouldn't have gotten a dog they can't control. Almost everything a dog does is to show dominance. Dominance over the owner, children, other dogs, etc. The owner was never able to dominate the dog and the pit bulls do whatever they wants. The nature of a Pit Bull is to fight and that is what it will do if the owner doesn't teach the dog who is boss from a young age. If the owner does teach the dog who the boss is from a young age the owner can control the behavior of the pit bull and teach it to be well behaved and friendly. Even if a dog is for protection, the owner needs to control the dog from a young age and teach the dog to show dominance only when somebody enters his/her area (but make sure the dog always knows the owner is the boss).
