We're still sorting through the many changes we hope to undergo in 2009. We intend to blog much less and track pit bull attacks in a different manner than we have in the past. We will be issuing quarterly reports about serious and fatal attacks, in addition to police shootings of pit bulls. Since the launch of DogsBite.org in October 2007, we've covered nearly every issue related to violent dog attacks, including the powerful lobbying groups that are determined to keep the maulings of innocent people and pets hidden and forgotten.
New Year's Wishes for 2009:
- That each of 2008's pit bull attack victims and their families are not forgotten by their local and state government officials.
- That in 2009, no innocent humans have to suffer through the most horrific manner of death conceivable to man -- being attacked, bitten, and ripped apart by powerful pit bulls with strong jaws and a tenacious demeanor that would prevent the average person from being able to stop the attack.
- That in 2009, no innocent humans suffer significant bodily injury, such as the loss of a limb, facial disfigurement, or mobility through a pit bull attack.
- That in 2009, no innocent owner of a domesticated companion animal or live stock will have to witness, experience, or have to respond to a pit bull attack upon their animal, suffering either their death, their significant injury, the necessity for emergency veterinarian services and expenses, or the trauma of such an event.
- That in 2009, more organizations invested in protecting human lives will become fully informed about the real and present danger posed by pit bulls in American Society and will take positive steps to take formal positions in favor of legal restrictions against pit bulls.
- That in 2009, enlightenment comes to local and state government officials about the hidden agenda of pit bull breeders, dogfighters, and organized criminal conspirators to support anti-BSL efforts.
- That in 2009, enlightenment comes to "misguided" pit bull owners and breeders that support dogfighters and breeders of fighting dogs -- people heavily invested in the continuation of creating violent dogs -- and instead, focus their attention on breeding safer dogs.
