8 thoughts on “Seattle Girl, 9, Hospitalized After Pit Bull Attack

  1. It sounds as though the dogs belonged to relatives and the child’s family was caring for them (temporarily).

  2. it is a shame that idiots like cherie graves oppose mandatory spay/neuter and anti-tethering laws.
    this antiquated blowhard should just step aside and let us reduce the number of dog attacks AND dog euthanizations.

    aside from appearing to be horribly neglected, these pits were not altered and they were chained in a dumpy shed! cherie graves thinks it better for us americans to maintain our full rights over our property than to protect people AND dogs.

  3. NO charges because it is family!?!?!

    So by that thinking, pedophiles should be safe from prosecution if they molest ONLY family members!

    WHAT AN IDIOTIC MENTALITY!

  4. Of course, the dog was not neutered, and will probably be returned to its owner….who will likely breed it and create more unstable, dangerous pit bulls. These dogs are worthless to the types of people that want them if they are neutered.

    The people of Seattle should demand mandatory spay and neuter of all pit bulls.

  5. Another Chain Breaking incident…Normal confinement measures aren’t working on this breed.

  6. A 90 pound dog loose on a small child. It’s almost unbeleivable and to think these pit nutters think there is nothing that should be done.
    Elizabeth Pensgard of “Responsible Dog Owners” commented, “26 people die accross the entire nation A YEAR and Mr. Monroe wants a law passed.” you bet I do. I want the law to step in and make these people contain their animals and tell them what it takes, to contain them. Then provide substantial punishment for those that do not comply or let the animal on the loose.
    These people that are turning out these dogs, come Judgement Day, will be punished for useing God’s creatures in this way.

  7. At current pace(which is accelerating), Pit Bulls will kill 220-250 Americans over the next decade. That just deaths…there will be thousands of life changing maulings, thousands of other pets shredded, and law enforcement will shoot over 1200 during beserking episodes.

    Legislators need to be put on record to what level of collateral damage they are willing to accept by allowing the unregulated ownership of these bear baiters.

  8. The truth about RDOWS, if the put half the concern for the word "Responsible" as they do on the words "Dog Owners" we'd all be on the same side. Pensgard, Graves, all of them are paid by donations from Pit Bull fighters, Puppymill breeders and the likes, they take their stand because they are PAID to stop laws that would in any way halt these big businesses. They don't care about the lives of children or dogs. It's time people started exposing them for what they are so law makers can see how they twist & use the Constitution to continue being paid from individuals who earn money from illegal or immoral gain.
