"Family members said the child had been playing on a swing set when the pit bull freed itself from its chain to attack the boy."

People try to resolve their aggressive pit bull issue by throwing the dogs on chains because they can't live in the house.

Of course, the pit bulls with their immense prey drive seem always to manage to get off the chain, and death or injury ensues.

This could easily have been a neighbor's child that was killed.

This, as well as a classic hoarding situation. What do we as a society think a mess like this will accomplish? There need to be some rules and guidelines.

Why wasn't animal control dealing with this situation a long time ago?

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Wednesday's Pit Bull attack comes less than two weeks after another East Texas toddler was nearly killed by a Pit Bull. A group of East Texans are pushing for a state-wide ban on Pit Bulls, and a first draft of the legislation will be presented to state senators on Friday.

A very notable quote in the story:

"Thinking that we could love it and train it. Not knowing."

How many times, as a prosecutor, have I met an owner who really just doesn't understand what they are getting when they get a pit bull. Plenty of blame to pass on to the pit bull propaganda machine that would have you believe chihuahas and dachsunds are more dangerous. What a croc!

I agree PitBull Pushers...
Very true indeed. They always find a way out. It's the same as trying to keep a tiger contained by chicken wire.

How many times does this has to happen? There is no way one can live in Texas and not know the danger after so many Pit and Rotticides!
