This story is sadly familiar. No, we don't get our lives back and yes, the loss of our peace of mind is huge. So sorry Skip. Hope you have a lawyer, your losses are very real and should be compensated. Having said this, it takes a long time. It took almost three years for us but the settlement did bring some closure. Good luck!

What a horror story! I'm so glad to see further information on this attack because at the time of the attack I had questions about this pit bull owner and his 2 pits. Had he been living with the pits at a residence inside the gates?

This is a meme from Big Cat Rescue, which is dedicated to ending the private possession of large, dangerous wildlife as pets (certainly a noble cause).

Anyway, take a look at the meme and you'll know where my mind is going. Tigers aren't the only "pets" who see an all-you-can-eat buffet!

This Darnell guy really illustrates the attitude of many pit owners: When looking at a man who is out of breath and bloody from a confrontation with his pits, Darnell says, with a straight face, "Don't worry, they don't bite." I am always amazed at their ability to deny their dogs' aggressiveness.

They deny their aggressiveness when it suits their purposes. Otherwise, they revel in it.

Case in point: My (now former) next door neighbors had a big, nasty pit bull. Named Bully.

So true. Couple of jerks are all over YouTube with their pits and complimenting each other's bad ass pit bulls. Once someone gets hurt, they'll change their tune. The "one bite rule" was written LONG BEFORE we were over run with killer pit bulls. They don't " bite", pit bulls take a bite. Needs to be revisited with these demons around.

What a harrowing story. The damage could have been a lot worse, but those memories will never go away. And this "Darnell" character -- unbelievable.

In response to GetAPetaHome, yeah, that "one bite rule" was obviously designed with the Labrador or poodle in mind that bites someone once, and with proper training, may never bite again. It was not designed for an animal that mauls people and dogs with the intent of killing them.
