5 thoughts on “Pit Bulls Kill Three horses; Maim One in Willits, California

Please review our comment policy.

  1. Why aren’t pit bull advocates DEMANDING that these feral pit bulls get “rehabilitated” via tax-paying funds so that the animals can be adopted back into our communities? Why aren’t they demanding that each trapped, dead pit bull at least get a formal burial? If pit bulls trained and bred for fighting can be rehabilitated, why not feral pit bulls? Who knows if the dogs are truly feral? The definition of feral is being “born in the wild,” which is not the same as being human owned then set loose into the wild. Surely some of these animals have an ounce of adoptable value:-)

  2. This 'trend' in attacks by dogs on horses has now reached the UK, sadly.

    My horse was attacked on both hind legs requiring a visit by the vet just a few months ago.

    A local rider also experienced an attack in which an owner's dog (bit bull type)'broke loose' whilst out walking on a bridleway' The dog chased the horse 'like a hyena' a witness reported- when it caught up at the fleeing horse and rider it made a grab for the n/s front leg and shoulder, resulting in 17 stitches- horse and rider loss of confidence- and a more expensive vet bill than mine.

    The owner said 'the rider was out of control' Yeah Right!

    No satisfaction from the police (who said it involved too much paper work)..and there 'no answer' when I tried to call the 'dog warden' who we were passed on to.

    Hey Ho!

    I'd like these vicious dogs to put be put in pits together with their irresponsible owners.
