This would be funny if not for the scar the girl will bear. Something tells me the owner is more worried about protecting her precious landshark than paying for the girl's medical treatment.

Oh yes...and before the nutters rationalize this incident as "the poor landshark was frightened", off property dogs have three choices to make: flee, submit or fight.... We all know which one a Pit Bull is likely to make!

Breed safer dogs please!

Leslie said, "We understand that you can't commit cruelty to animals but at what point do we stop cruelty to human beings? Emotionally, physically, this is our concern. We don't want to live like this and no one should have to."

If something like this had happened in an affluent neighborhood, you had better believe those dogs would be GONE, and there would be public outrage. My suggestion to the family would be to keep the pressure on; contact your local BOS or BOA, and contact the local news stations, to make sure it remains in the news. Lots of coverage may result in other victims of the dogs coming forward, or more information about the owners coming to light that may help force AC to act. I would also call your state legislature and demand action. Victims need to make a lot of noise....the "pit activists" certainly do.

This is a good example as to why comprehensive regulation of these animals is so neccesary, and why comprehensive dangerous dog laws need to be statewide. The dog was off leash and off property, and attacked a child in a completely unprovoked attack. It should have been confiscated immediately and euthanized, the owner should have been heavily fined...the other dogs should have been removed, evaluated, and if any were found to be aggressive, PTS also.

Punishment for owning dangerous dogs and allowing them to hurt innocent victims should be swift and decisive. This story is simply unbelievable.....this extremely dangerous, unstable animal has been placed in another neighborhood, where it may very well kill a child. The new owners will lie about its background, and no one will ever know the dog had a bite history the next time it attacks someone. This is why microchipping of this breed MUST be mandatory; authorities must be able to track ownership of these dogs, until we can successfully spay and neuter them out of the pet population.

Nirel's mother, Leslie makes one of the mose sensible statements I have ever heard. Leslie said, "We understand that you can't commit cruelty to animals but at what point do we stop cruelty to human beings? Emotionally, physically, this is our concern. We don't want to live like this and no one should have to."
Amen Leslie!

Dog owners of most breeds put their dog down if it attacks. Pit bull owners move the dog to a new neighborhood. They truly care more about the dog than anyone or anything else. It's as if they worship these animals. Maybe if we just find the vat of Kool-Aid they are drinking from we can end this problem quickly.
