2 thoughts on “9-Year Old Boy Attacked by Pit Bulls in School Play Field

  1. How do so many pit bull owners pick up and move to another city when the dogs are banned? Do they sell their homes? I don’t understand….so many of these owners are young, they are not property owners. Who is renting to pit bull owners?

    As far as I know, if a landlord knows there is aggressive dog on the property, he can be sued if the dog attacks someone. Are all of these owners renting from family, or slumlords? When I was young and looking for apartments, I could never find a place that would allow dogs….you were lucky if your landlord would let you have a cat, never mind a pit bull.

    I find it amazing that so many transient dog owners find landlords that will rent to them. Any landlord I have ever met understands the liability, and either won’t rent to dog owners, or prohibits “dangerous” breeds, per their homeowners policy.
