07/26/08: Lifetime of Injury Unfolds
Paw Paw, MI - In a developing story, a 10-year old boy is recovering in the hospital after being attacked by the family pit bull. The boy's injuries required the amputation of his right arm.

The pit bull advocates are sitting around saying, "There must have been some sign from the dog like
he growled at a stranger the day before." So what if the dog did?
How many dog breeds chew a family members arm off the way this breed does? The pit bull advocates continue to deny genetics. It's a lot like the fairy tale of The Emperors New Clothes. The subjects refused to say the king had no clothes on--A child called out, "he's naked." Perhaps this mauled child can tell the advocates, "genetics count."

YIPPEE! Another owner bitten!!
That means the dog will be destroyed before he can attack some innocent being.
The American Bulldog started to bark at the neighbor's gardner, the owner told him to be quiet but the PIT BULL had his own ideas.

Women with children whose "boyfriend's" pit bulls live in the house should be charged with child endangerment. At least the child wasn't hurt.
