  1. “The neighborhood kids had been outside all day, Greer said, playing and riding bikes. She described Paul as very little, adding she heard no sounds from him during the attack, only his mother’s screams.”

    Well…that’s the problem right there…Anyone knows kids can’t play in the vicinity of Pit Bulls, they’ll break containment and go after them… Don’t blame the dog…Sheesh!!!

  2. Not surprising…

    “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.”
