some nutter wondered why no one is calling for a ban on labs ?

well , it might have been pitbull , since nobody can identify them .

certainly might have had some other blood than lab. or it coulda been deranged or sick (rabies).

when labs start killing in pit-like numbers i will call for a ban on them too.

At least one report did mention a pit bull. "The breed of the dog is unknown, but it is thought that it might be a Labrador mix and not a pit bull as originally thought."

The US has been overdue for another Rottenmauler fatality...

Texas has now sustained 36 DBRFs since 2005.

26 by Pit Bulls

6 by Rottweiler

The rest of doggiedom?...not so much.

On another note; pits and Rotts have now killed over 400 Americans since 1976.

Nice work Dog Lobby!

The media is so sad -- this woman owned her own dog grooming business. How could they miss that?
"Linda was born March 15, 1950 in San Benito, to parents; Robert A. Merrell and Lucille Overton, a former resident of Sheldon, and has resided in Dayton for the past 19 years. She attended the San Jacinto Community College, owner of Linda’s Dog Grooming in Dayton and Sheldon, and member of the First Baptist Church of Sheldon. She also assisted in the Sheldon area little league and booster organizations, and was an art instructor. Linda enjoyed caring for animals, art, music, cake decorating, and sports."

Thanks for the information, Maultalk. I kept coming back here looking for more each day. Her story seemed incomplete.

As you know, the last three of four fatal dog attack victims' stories have been incomplete. We are still looking for the obituary of Ayden Evans. There was no follow up from Oklahoma news stations after his parents returned with their son in an urn. It may be weeks before we learn anything else about Arianna, if at all. Ayden's death haunts me the most and how his family is coping with his loss.

They should have shown a close-up picture of the dog after it was shot. It just looks like a black blur in the video.

How was it now comfirmed to be a rottweiler and not a rottweiler mastiff mix?

I'm not sure what you mean. It is recorded as a rottweiler-mastiff mix, the primary breed is listed first (http://www.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-statistics-fatalities-2013.php#linda-oliver). Only the primary breed is used in fatality statistics. This is true for all dog breeds.

sorry to confuse but I was aware in your blog it said Rottweiler-mastiff mix but a commenter on my page was asking why it said Rottweiler-mastiff then in your 2013 fatality report it was only mentioned as a Rottweiler. so thanks for letting me know so I can clear that up with him.
