  1. Maricopa County is too busy euthanizing Pit Bulls to bother with an Ambull that is a human biter.

    The Humane Society there adopted out the Ambull that killed Tori Whitehurst back in 2007.

    They must be breeding some nasty Am Bulls there.

  2. This leaves me in tears for this family. First the trauma of the attack, waiting at the bedside and then she dies. What is it going to take to stop this? To hell with the swine flu, this is affecting more lives, why won't they answer to it? It's almost too much to bear. Her children, grandchildren, great grandchildrn, all those people are affected by this one attack.

  3. Maripoca has also bought into the "No Kill" agenda. Ed Boks started there and claimed to have made it "No Kill" which, of course, he didn't. Still they hang on to the principles of it.

  4. American bulldogs are just pits on steroids. I have yet to meet a single one that is stable. Those dogs are menaces and should be banned right alongside pits. How terrible for this family to have to lose a loved one in this way!
