2 thoughts on “Two Pit Bulls Attack Shetland Pony then 'Redirect' Attack onto Nearby People

  1. After the dogs let go of the horse, they turned their attention to nearby people.

    hmmm…what about animal aggression doesn’t equal human aggression??

  2. “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.”

    “In the Pit Bull incidents, 58% of the victims were walking or had no interaction with the dog prior to the attack, 19.8 were bitten coming to the aid of a person or animal that had been attacked, 7.9% were playing with the animal and 5 % were provoking the animal. In the cases involving other breeds 48.4 percent involved no direct interaction, 27.4 play and 1.6% provocation.”
