22 thoughts on “2011 Dog Bite Fatality: Four Pit Bulls Maul New Mexico Woman to Death

  1. Pit bulls are on track to kill more than 20 Americans this year.

    At the end of 2011, the stats will show about 60-65% of all fatal dog attacks in USA are committed by pit bull dogs.

    If you look at those numbers on a graph or pie chart, it is shocking. Even more shocking when you consider this breed comprises only 3-5 % of total dog population.

    You need not be a forensic analyst to figure it out folks. BSL works.
    Eliminate the deed, BAN THE BREED.

    What an awful, awful way to die. Poor lady. Pray for her family.

  2. I hope that the Salcedo family will fight hard and loudly for their victimized relative, because the rich, white racists that constitute the "pit bull advocacy" community will work hard to victimize any victim, blame the victim, and get sympathy for these fighting breed dogs.

    The poor and minorities (and women, elderly, and children among them) suffer the most from pit bull attacks, yet the rich, white pit bull advocates take away their rights and work very hard to enable more attacks, more persecution, for victims that have small voices in comparison to the big bank accounts and big mouths of those representing fighting dogs.

    Money buys media attention and using the media to propagandize for fighting dog interests. The poor and minorities are lost in the lies.

    Pit bull advocates (also known as business lobbyists) will work hard to disappear Margaret Salcedo's attack from history.

    Please, Salcedo family, be strong and do not allow these evil, hateful people to do this.

    This is a battle for civil rights.

  3. US PITICIDE # 281 despite the myth they were never bred to be human aggressive….

    Pits are unique that they pick off adults with almost equal frequency that they kill children…perhaps that is why the dogfighters came up with the perverse "Nanny Dog" fairy tale.

  4. PitBullPushers just gave notice of the considerable social injustice that occurs in the world of U.S. dog maulings. This social injustice is not often talked about. I believe the only time it has been brought up by any country in one of our blog posts regards the case of Stanislav Meglic of Slovenia.

    After the release of the dogs, but prior to the compensation hearing, one Slovenian newspaper remarked on the social injustice of the 2006 incident. The victim was forced to wait nearly four years for any compensation.6 The dogs' owners, who were prominent doctors, were able to manipulate the system through influential connections in order to "save" the dangerous dogs. Specifically, the paper states, "Thus, dogs have many more lobbyists and lawyers, as a "regular" citizen."

  5. Pit nutters are the dumbest humans to walk the face of the Earth. I'm sorry that the truth of them is so offensive to their inbred ears.

  6. Local comments from one of the mauling threads:

    $1000 bucks they wont be charged
    two reasons
    1)victim is hispanic and dog owner is white
    2) he was a former police officer

    I see no justice in this case. Had it been the other way around we would be talking indictment right now

    1000 bucks

    You can lay more than that on the table (Sarcasmo) and be assured that you will not loose a penny. This is the same POS District Attorney that let the Ranger Walk for shooting the unarmed man in the back at Elephant Butte State Parks. Being a resident of the same community that the lady was killed in, rest assured that they are already looking for ways to sweep this under the rug also. Former Law enforcement officer, security guard, tell me the owner of the dogs did not know what those dogs are capable of.

  7. Ms Salcedo was the 166th American killed by a Pit since the CDC made the "no breeding difference" proclamation and stopped tracking DBRF data in 1998.

    HUG A DOG LOBBIEST TODAY!

  8. These people are disgusting. He's a former police officer???? Geez. I did not read why she has to have supervised visits…But c'mon bringing your abused-to-sell-as-guard-dog pit bulls?

    Here's some terrifying comments on the story:

    Wonder what they're going to do with the 4 new pitbulls our idiot Animal Shelter let the Hardiman's adopt a few days after their previous four killed Margie?

    You think that's a shame, you should read what one of our City Commissioners, Frances Luna, wrote in her newspaper. Told the Salcedo family last week "there's the highway…hit the road."

  9. BUSTED! Now let's see if Wellborn can pull this off. He didn't sound too convincing: "We're just going to go forward with the case, have a hearing scheduled at some point"

  10. More on the horrifying shelter situation:

    Wonder what they're going to do with the 4 new pitbulls our idiot Animal Shelter let the Hardiman's adopt a few days after their previous four killed Margie?
    –next–
    Dead serious. Since the Hardiman's hadn't been "charged" with anything in the first few days, our Animal Contro Shelter felt there was nothing wrong with letting them adopt 4 more pit bulls. So they did!!!

    PEOPLE THAT FOLLOW THIS WEBSITE PERHAPS DO NOT BELIEVE THAT IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A SERIOUS OR FATAL PIT BULL MAULING — AND THE DOGS HAVE BEEN SHOT TO DEATH OR OTHERWISE CONFISCATED FOR GOOD — THAT THESE PIT BULL OWNERS WILL OBTAIN NEW PIT BULLS. IT REALLY IS TRUE FOLKS AND THERE ARE NOT MANY LAWS TO STOP THEM. THESE PEOPLE ARE FAR FROM NORMAL DOG OWNERS AND CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE WITHOUT THEIR DANGEROUS PIT BULLS.

  11. "It was scary out there in the dark knowing those animals were roaming around," Deputy Todd Kanavel told the Times Recorder. "But what's scarier is the thought that one of those big cats or bears could get hold of a child. We're all upset about this. It's not a happy situation at all."
    Replace "big cats or bears" with "pit bulls". How is this scarier than a woman being torn apart by 4 pit bulls while walking in her neighborhood? I'm glad that the owners have been arrested. I hope it sticks.

  12. It's repulsive that Mrs Salcedo hadn't even been buried yet and these two maniacs were able to walk out of the shelter with new Pitties!

    There needs to be a Radicalized Pittie Organization Watchlist. These people are not living up to there public safety obligations.

    Notice not a single Pit Nutter has criticized this shelters criminal irresponsibility. The silence is deafening…..
