Here is another case of a child bitten by a pit bull...the family was walking their newly adopted pit bull, when the child stepped on an ant pile, and began screaming and flailing about...so the dog mauled him.

Its time to hold shelters accounatble for placing these ticking time bombs into the community as "pets".

Ticking time bomb is an overused term, I prefer...

"Canine IED"

"It was shut, the backdoor was shut. There was no way the dog was going to get out," said Matt Kelly, (the dogsitter).

Perhaps Matt is now aware that Pit Bulls are 14 times more likely to break containment and attack compared to other breeds. This should be part of Dogsitting 101 curriculum.

This little boy quite likely has nerve damage to his face, and could face a lifetime of painful reconstructive surgery which will never repair the damage. Because of a dog.
