One thought on “Three Pit Bulls Bust Out of Enclosure, Attack Boy

  1. Elementary really! Pits are 14 times more likely than other breeds to break containment and attack.

    We see this nearly everyday…sigh.

    “In the Lockwood & Rindy study(1987), 42 percent of pit bull attacks involved dogs that were fenced, chained or inside prior to the incident. Another 14% involved dogs jumping fences or breaking chains. For bites involving other breeds, 26.7 were similiarly restrained, BUT ONLY 1% involved breaking restraint.”

    There needs to be a study done on pits and gardening aggression..Over the past few years,several grandmothers have been killed while gardening, with one actually pulled off riding lawnmower. I wonder if the constant bending down sends a signal that the grandmother is another matchdog that is looking for a fight?
