"We had some brave kids. Some kids ran back to the scene to try to pull the dogs off the children that were injured..."

That is more bravery than what the insecure pitbull owner will ever show in a lifetime.

Another terrible tragedy. The pit nutters should be ashamed of their promotion of a fighting dog as a family pet.

My prayers are with the families of these victims. I can barely get through one of these DBFRs without tears in my eyes, especially when the innocent victims are the same age as my own children.
What really makes me sick and enraged is the pro pit bull BS laced throughout the article about the death and the ultra violent mauling of 2 little kids. The AJC should be absolutely ashamed of themselves! Wtf?! Would you ever see articles titled "Pedophiles : Dangerous or Misunderstood?" or "Serial Killers: Why People Fear Them" ? No... but they continue to advocate for dogs with explosive, unpredictable violence that have a real propensity for ruining the lives of children. Unacceptable in humans, but totally fine in dogs. Makes sense.
Pit bull ownership is a valid sign of mental illness.

Isn't this the same AJC that libeled Richard Jewell after the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in 1996?

K-Hart, they don't call it the Atlanta Journal of Prostitution for no reason.

I don't even know what to say anymore. These damn pit bulls kill one thing or another very damn day.

This saddens and sickens me. What must happen for those who make laws to rectify this despicable situation? This simply cannot continue.

Extremely sad. I wish the neighbor had called when she saw the pitbulls running loose on Saturday. Ignoring a pit bull running loose is no different then ignoring a tiger running loose! Sickeningly enough, the 2 murderous pitbulls that weren't shot by the police officer will probably be rehomed to some completely unsuspecting family. :(

With a description stating "looking for a home without children or with older children only" (this is a red flag that the dog has bitten kids before or has been otherwise aggressive around them).

Just devastating! After watching the body cam footage I can't stomach thinking about what these little kids endured. Another little life stolen.

Unreal.

We should not be living in a world where children are at risk of getting attacked or killed by dogs while walking to school. The pits being loose is already disgusting on it's own, but if it was any normal breed these children would not have endured this pain. Logan would be alive and Syrai would not be as injured. Why do people think this is acceptable? Why do they think having a creature that can do this to children is okay? No one needs a bully breed. Any one that would be so depressed to not have this murderous animal anymore us seriously sick in the head. Pit supporters are the reason why this happened and the fact that they don't feel the slightest bit of care or sympathy to their fellow human (though sometimes I wonder if they are human with how a lot of them act and speak) is repulsive. Pit nutters are the lowest of the low.

Yes better hope the next potential adopter doesn't have neighbors with kids either.But pitbull advocates don't give a shit about anything but their precious sweet pibbles.They don't care about the children,elderly or other animals that are killed every year by their pibbles.

I'm so tired of people making up excuses for all the pitbull attacks.
They say it's the way they were raised, or the kids did something to provoke the attack. One person even tried to tell me that the kids were playing tug of war with the dogs.
So , now it's the kids fault!
I'm tired of people making excuses for this breed

So, they are claiming the two killer dogs as family members? I just don't have the words to express how I feel about this. What a horrible, unfeeling thing to say when you are responsible for a tragedy like this. It's so disrespectful of the victims and their real, human families. Like they're trying to make others think that the loss of two animals (who will hopefully be HUMANELY euthanized) could compare to the loss that these families of the victims are feeling, when their actual children suffered in pain and fear, literally being eaten by monsters. These dog owners really are psychopaths.

This is an AP article that is a "correction" of the original. It states that one of the dogs was a border collie. I own a border collie/blue heeler. It in no way looks like anything like either of those two dogs. There are no pics with the article, so you just have to take their word for it.

Blogger Colleen Lynn  |  1/20/2017 9:48 PM  |  Flag  
We think the legal tactic will be to deny his dogs were involved. Must have been "someone else's" dogs. There will be DNA, etc, to prove which dogs attacked. Fortunately, witnesses (many) saw the attack happen. So this will not be the like the Dallas fiasco.

Blogger Colleen Lynn  |  1/20/2017 9:58 PM  |  Flag  
Farmer Jane, we are certainly aware of the AP correction. Did you see that the author of "Pit Bulls for Dummies" has spoken out? (https://www.facebook.com/caroline.coile/posts/10211177505449616) The police report states pit bull and pit bull-mix -- matching the photographs exactly. Whatever Fulton County Animal Control is trying to pull, we shall see how this works out, once the criminal trial advances.

Fulton County Animal Control.

I hope that people remember that a pit bull lobbyist, married to a man connected to dog fighters, was the Fulton County Animal control officer until a news investigation revealed animal cruelty, hiding a pit bull involved in an attack, allowing pit bulls to kill other dogs in kennel runs, releasing pet cats outdoors to die or use as bait, and many other problems (in the name of pit bull advocacy & No Kill.)

Perhaps Dogsbite could provide a link to their blog entry for this?

This county has had problems for a long time

I ask everyone who cares to fight very hard for strict dog legislation in their communities.

No tolerance for loose dogs, responsive animal control, leash laws, identification of dangerous dogs before they attack, strict dangerous dog punishments and seizures, kennel licensing, quick court intercession with dog owners who do not follow laws.

And, IMHO, this would be much more feasible -- and enforceable -- than BSL.

Blogger Your Quiet Neighbor  |  1/21/2017 10:34 AM  |  Flag  
I have often said that shelters lie. Well, so does animal control.

Blogger Unknown  |  1/23/2017 9:44 PM  |  Flag  
No need for anyone to own a pitbull. Noway they should be able to run free at all anywhere. I own an English Mastiff that will soon top 200 pounds and although very gentle with me I would not let her run free or even take her to a dog park as it would be irresponsible to do so.

In your sidebar, about the reporting by the Atlanta Journal Constitution

did you mean they had NOT mentioned the breed in their article or title?

Blogger Colleen Lynn  |  1/25/2017 9:18 AM  |  Flag  
joelande AJC did use "pit bull" in the title of the article (very unusual for them) -- at least at that time. It likely has been revised since. All initial reports were based upon a police report that stated the dogs were a pit bull and pit bull-mix. About 7 hours after the attack, Fulton County AC began disseminating the information that one of the dogs was a "border collie." In breaking news, titles are frequently revised as is the copy within the article.

Colleen Lynn, thank you. Now I understand. They actually did use the proper breed designation instead of hiding it. A miracle.

I am sorry to say there was a terrible attack on a 96 year old woman in Philly by two pit bulls. She is critically injured. her husband tried to save her.

Is there jail time with manslaughter in the 2nd degree? This owner, as all owners, need to be made an example of to show the rest of the pit owners what to expect when their pits "somehow" get loose.

Blogger Your Quiet Neighbor  |  1/28/2017 8:55 AM  |  Flag  
Manslaughter convictions usually involve jail time.
