Home Invasion Attack
Fort Collins, CO - A Fort Collins pit bull has been euthanized after it entered into a neighbor's home and killed a pet cat in front of the shaken family, including two children. The pit bull, an 18-month-old dog named Lucky, chased a 2-year-old tan-and-white tabby named Simon upstairs into a bedroom and held the cat in an ironclad bite. "The dog clamped onto him and never let go," said Shannon Watson, the cat's owner. "He was just shaking it like a rag doll."
Watson described the bite as a "death grip."
It would be interesting to know how Cat Fancier groups feel about breed-specific laws (AKA pit bull laws). The number of cats savaged by pit bulls is shocking and overwhelming. Sadly, many cat owners and lovers likely make donations to animal organizations (such as Best Friends) that spend considerable resources opposing pit bull laws and promote the "rehabilitation" of multi-generational fighting dogs designed to kill dogs, cats and other animals.
