11/16/08: Mother Surprised Dog Was Violent
Ardmore, OK - A two year-old in Ardmore was viciously attacked Thursday night by their family pit bull. Neighbors told reporters it was absolutely the unthinkable. They said the mother was screaming and it was without a doubt one of the most horrifying things they've ever seen. Neighbor Teresa Fowler said, "...you know they was just in shock, because I mean it was horrible they said there was a puddle of blood out there they said the little girl just looked awful."
The mother was washing dishes while her two daughters were playing on the floor. Seconds later, the family's pit bull was attacking the two year-old in the face. The mother shoved the 4-year old old out the front door while she tried to pry her toddler from the dog's mouth. The mother ran outside yelling for help, asking someone to call 911 -- her phone was in the trailer with the dog. She says they've had the dog for more than five years, and it had never shown a violent side.
Pit bulls were selectively bred to hide warning signals before an attack.The child was airlifted to Children's Hospital in Oklahoma City. Instead of offering the truth about pit bulls to the news source, Ardmore Animal Control offered a hocus pocus response to the attack, but admitted that this was one of the worst attacks they've ever seen. We'd like to share with the KTEN news team that since January 2006, pit bulls have killed a person every 20 days -- 50 citizens are dead due to pit bull attacks in this time frame, only 28% were to persons 4 years and younger.

More pro-pit bull Animal Control lying about pit bulls to protect the breeders?
When are citizens going to clean out the pit bull propagandists they are giving tax money to?
And this is the dog the pit bull industry calls the "Nanny dog." It rips up children routinely.
When will the propaganda start getting challenged by an informed media resistant to fairy tales from the pit bull people?

So, a dog that had lived for five years with a family....who had a four and two year old, which means the dog lived with a child for four years without incident, with two children for the past two years without incident....flips its lid suddenly and mauls the two year old?
And we are to believe that these dogs are not dangerous and unpredictable?

A couple of quotes from the video footage:
"Just seconds later the family's pit bull was attacking the two year old in the face."
"The Ardmore animal control says that pit bulls often attack children because pit bulls don't like eye to eye level eye contact."

Look at the comment by keri in that article, who claims to be the mother.
She is defending the reputation of pit bulls! while the kid is in the hostial ripped up
She is trying to hide that it was a pit bull and I wonder why. Is this part of a pit breeding operation that she is trying to cover for?

I am continually astonished by American Bulldog owners lack of understanding of their dogs and their origins.
They ARE pit bulls. You don't have to take my word for it, listen to pit bull expert, Diane Jessup.
The Working Pit Bull p82-83
"A breed that until the late 1980s was virtually unheard of, this breed, I believe was "manufactured" from existing lines of large pit bulldogs during the eighties to attract the novice Pit Bull owner who thought "bigger is better." Some lines are probably pure Pit Bulls which survived and developed along unique lines in secluded Southern states. Some lines of this "purebred" are APBTs crossed with any of a half dozen large Mastiff-type breeds. This breed has been endowed with a rich and rather fictional history by the breeds promoters. These dogs are rarely fought, but instead are sold as a sort fo "super guard dog" endowed with all sorts of supernatural abilities. It is marketed almost exclusively to those people who want a "big Pit Bull" for guard or attack work."
The Working Pit Bull p84
"The American Bulldog is almost identical to the Pit Bulldog, and is identified by its massive size."
