Being mauled by a large dog or wild animal must be one of the most horrific experiences civilized people have to endure. Looking at the number of heart attacks that occur during an attack seems to support this point.

Looking at the archive - look how heart attacks related to pit bull attacks sky rocket in the 80s.

And I happened to find that the attack which prompted Ohio to deem pit bulls vicious was on a doctor who died of a heart attack as a result of an attack.

The Ohio case is very famous Snack Sized. Dr. William Eckman, 67, was gruesomely mauled by two pit bulls while 9 people tried to subdue the animals. The attack -- often described as a slaughter -- lasted about 25 minutes long.

i just don't understand why people allow their adult children to bring these things into their homes. but i am looking forward to the official pit nutter statement on this tragedy.

Technically, this was a DBRF according to the standards set by "The Experts" at HSUS, CDC and NCRC. Mr Grant expired while the legally vicious animal was latched onto him and onsite CPR efforts to revive him failed. The familiy stated that "The Bite" took 1-2 minutes.

Perhaps if the Pit Community would breed dogs that bite and release, "Five Bite Exploding Heart Technique" victims could be avoided.

In all 274 US Pit Bull DBRFs, the victim's heart eventually stopped beating....

And a military DBRF:

"According to Grant's obituary, the Sullivan man served in the United States Army and worked as a CNC machinist for Spencer Forge and Manufacturing."

There was also 14 year old Miracle Parham who was chased by a Pit at a bus stop into traffic and killed last year.


The Dogfighters have done a fantastic propaganda job compartmentalizing their societal damage to just the Pits themselves. Then they twist it into a Humane issue for fundraising!

In France last year there was a guy that jumped into a river trying to escape from a pit bull. He drowned.
