  1. When DBO started tracking these incidents, it was estimated that there were 175-200 such incidents annually. The Pit Bull community has clearly surpassed all expectations with 400 lawful shootings…This is clearly a LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE!

  2. Congrats to the breeders and owners. 400 dead pit bulls, although not completely representative because of incomplete reporting, is a remarkable milestone. All other types of dogs combined can’t even register a tick mark on the chart of defensive actions against pit bull type dogs. Well done.

    Here’s to the possibilities for ’09!

  3. Re:
    Delusions abound!

    The house is broken into and the pit goes missing, but not because it was stolen? Hilarious!

    Pit bulls are stolen by dog fighters, or stolen for sale to dog fighters all the time. But this person thinks the pit bull chased the burglar away and just kept going? (LMAO! Another theory from La-La Land!)

  4. Just think how bad it would be if they weren’t regulated in over 200 cities and towns!


  5. Hell, I just thought the muddy footprints were coincidental if existent at all.
    I took it that the dog saw an animal, burst through the door to get at it. Maybe my theory will change when they find a half-eaten burglar in the woods.
    As if he could outrun a pit.
    No blood at the scene, even though the burglar was in the house.
    They happened to loose all identification of this bait dog.
    Oh yeah, and a pit as a bait dog.
    Unicorns crap gumdrops in that town.

  6. And these are only those that are reported. I would suspect that many neighbors have taken the law into their own hands to dispose of problem animals. And since many of these dogs are not licensed or have their rabies shots or cared for at all by their so-called owners, they never get reported. Likewise, criminals are not going to report their drug protection dog was shot by a rival gang. I suspect the true number is closer to 600.
