By late May, a regional grassroots effort to locate the pit bull owner kicked in. "Wanted" posters went up from Reno, Nevada to Stockton, California in pet stores and veterinarian offices. The reward for information was elevated to $4,700. As of July 29th, to our knowledge, there is still no word on the fugitive pit bull owner or the offending dog.

They need to start a DNA database for these biting dogs. That's the only way you can proof which dog did the biting. When dogs are impounded by animal control they can check the database and the owner can't claim it was the first time the dog bit.
And if owners can be held responsible long after the fact, maybe they will start to act responsible.

This is so infuriating. These dogs are so prey driven, and unpredictable a leash would not have made a difference. This is a dog that exists to fight and kill other dogs and the inbred traits make this dog a real problem.Yes to pit bull owners I said inbred! This poor horse and rider/owner. Unfortunately they are not alone.
