Minneapolis MN - Two pit bulls jumped a short fence into a backyard and killed the 5 lb pomeranian puppy of John Fena and Edwin Schumacher. The two plan to wage a grassroots campaign to get city and state officials to enact stricter laws concerning pit bulls and their owners.
"These dogs have more rights than their victims. Legislation must change," said John Fena.Fena and Schumacher are indignant that the dogs were unleashed, which is a violation of city ordinance that states that dogs be restrained anytime they're outside. And they are aghast that two men who were allegedly walking the dogs down the alley stood by and did nothing to help.
Minneapolis Animal Control are looking for the two men and the pit bulls. The dogs each weigh 70 pounds. One is tan or camel and the other is black and grey in a calico pattern.
Fena and Schumacher are hoping others who have had their pets attacked by pit bulls will contact them and help work to enact tougher laws and ordinances.
"We know others in the community have been affected," Fena said. "We need to come together."Contact: Fena can be reached at email@example.com or phone at 612-870-3644. Anybody with information about Monday's incident is asked to call Minneapolis Animal Control at 612-348-4250.

Another Pit "Dine and Dash"...
Gotta wonder how many times a year these dog lovers kill other family's dogs?
What cracks me up is that anytime a Pit is killed by a human the Pit Advocates scream bloody murder and demand long sentences...yet they readily accept this type of collateral damage caused by the grotesque dog aggression trait bred into their dogs.

My cat KC was killed by a Pit bull and a Boxer, Oct. 2, 2007
A Brandy Heckaman, Silverlake IN who runs a bully breed rescue said if I loved my cat so much, I should not of had him outside and if I need another cat the local human shelter would have one for me. very compassionate. When the question of insurance was brought to her attention she said I should take up a hobby rather than bothering loveing pet owners over damn insurance. How would you like to live next door to a bully rescue that doesn't feel the need to have any insurance? It's people like her that are causing the insurance to go up ,not people like me.

I had a 4 1/2 year old AKC white male pomerian. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old.
He was like a child of mine and my husband. I have a neighbor who has a pit bull. This dog has broke my fence down 6 times in the last week. I have ask them to fix the matter. Tonight on May 23rd this dog broke down our fence and killed our JC.
The Montgomery County Law enforcement said they could not help us. The animal control said they could not come out until the next day. And there is a small child in this home . Where can you get help this matters like this ?
