Tamarac, FL - A man shot and killed a pit bull in Broward County on Thursday after the dog got loose and attacked him. Paulo Jean, 35, was taken to a hospital after police said the pit bull bit Jean in both arms and his rear end. The pit bull named, Trouble, escaped from his cage and the neighborhood children started screaming. When Jean ran out side to investigate, he was attacked. Police said Paulo was legally armed and fired back, killing the dog.
The owner was surprised when he returned home to find that his pit bull was dead after attacking and hospitalizing a man. Trouble was apparently known in the neighborhood to have a split personality. Neighbors said he was sometimes friendly and sometimes aggressive. Investigators are still trying to determine whether the dog's owner will face charges.

"A man who asked to be referred to as "John" was surprised when he returned home to find that his pit bull Trouble was dead after attacking and hospitalizing a man."
Why is the owner always the only one who is surprised?

Denial, defense mechanism, and morally reprehensible. Brings to mind Charles Smallwood. "I will never go into that house again. I will never own another dog..."
Charles Smallwood's two pit bull attacked and killed Jennifer Lowe while she visited his house last year. The grapevine says, he's got 3 new dogs -- how much do you want to bet they are pits?
