Family Makes Plea
UPDATE 10/05/11: The infant in the most recent fatality has been identified as Mya Maria Maeda. Susan Glenn, Mya's aunt, complains to News Channel 10 that the family has now been victimized too. Glenn is asking the public (presumably pit bull advocates who have left mean spirited comments in mauling threads) to stop attacking the baby's mother, Monique Hernandez, and to realize Mya's death was an accident. Glen says they are also asking officials to be understanding.

"The Law is an Ass"
the nanny dog propaganda is very effective.
It was a crib snatching…"Amarillo Animal Control says the mother was sleeping on the couch next to the baby's crib. The family's pit bull took the baby out of the crib."
