9 thoughts on “More 'Imposter' Animal Control Officers Stealing Pit Bulls

  1. The owner didn’t have tags or insurance, and we’re supposed to feel sorry for him? Sounds to me like a disaster averted. What would he have done had his dog attacked someone? How would he have paid for it? For that matter, since the dog wasn’t licensed or registered, how do we know he even had a dog at all?

  2. It’s sad that it’s become so believable to these owners that an animal control officer would just come and take their dog from them for no reason that this type of thing could even take place.

  3. Watch the video. Looks like the reporter managed to interview one of the 30% who don’t mind living next to a pit bull. I wonder what the other 70% of the KY trailer court occupants would say?

    “My god, that dawg kilt 3 cats and one dawg last week”

    “Dat dawg wuz aways runnin loos, scaring people. Oner sez, dawg just wantin to play but didn’t like no play to me.”

    “Thank gawd! That dawg kornered my huzban in his truck last munth!”

  4. If dog fighters are stealing dogs to use for fighting, then I guess the idea that pits have to be specially bred and trained for fighting holds no water. It can be any and every pit bull.

  5. Every single pit bull was bred for fighting — this aspect of their genetic heritage cannot be taken away or “bred out” of them. Not every pit bull is “game,” in fact few are. But every pit bull contains the attack traits that were selectively bred into them: To hold on, to shake and to not let go…even after considerable force is inflicted upon the animal.
