Default Man mauled to death by his own Pit Bull

While doing an interview with BBC. All I can do is shake my head.

If it was a bad dog owner, wouldn't the owner have mauled the dog to death?

My sister put one of hers down a few weeks ago, also a Straffordshire. Ten years old and never a problem until one Saturday earlier this month he all the sudden tried to bite her. Bye bye doggie.

She still has an APBT.

Yep, that would be an open invitation for a JHP to the noggin for sure. I'd at least let it walk outside first.

How do we know that's a Pit Bull? Was a DNA Test performed? Do we have documentation of the past 3 generations of parents?

Obviously a rescue dog. A normal Pitt Bull would never hurt a fly...

I saw a similar story where a basset hound mauled its entire family to death as well. Any breed is capable of violence.







Haha I'm kidding of course a basset hound won't kill anyone that's only pit bulls.

I would say as dangerous as a loaded gun lying around, but none of my trusted firearms have decided to shoot me for no reason out of the blue.


Also, all my guns fell of my boat in the ocean.

So there is a "crew" there to interview the guy and no one can stop this attack?

The only scenario I can imagine is the dog just got a mouthful of vital stuff in the first bite.

To the dog's defense, the man smelled like pupperoni and snausages.

My 6'4" brother in laws pit grabbed another one of his dogs "different breed" and he could not get him to release hold . Even pored water on his head and finally a well placed bullet in top of head did the trick. Dead dog.

Sad situation.

With all the misinformation flying around via the media and the internet it is hard to know what to believe but I read a recent stat talking about how 50% of victims are family members of the animal.
