  1. I will be waiting to see what the back yard breeder was mixing with his Rottweilers if the information is put out. Poor Man – He didn't deserve such a horrible death and the latest article says his wife tried her best to fight the dogs off him but could not.

  2. Cue up the rescue angels, mewling over the fate of the 26-33 rottweilers. And not a word about the deceased man.

  3. Another preventable tragedy. Apparently, neighbors had complained about the dogs in the past but nothing was done by authorities.

    The owner of any dog that attacks belongs in jail. Time is NOW to start locking these people up! Unfortunately, the owner WALKS again!

  4. DBRFs from Pit Bulls and Rottweilers have surpassed 250 since the last CDC report.

    Nothin to see here…just makin a little money!

  5. Vintage, I'm sure the perp was pulling down a tidy 2nd income from the Rott-Mill! And, I'm sure RottMiller Lenton was NOT paying sales or income taxes!

    Maybe the government will have to "Pull a Capone" and go after Lenton for tax evasion… not the best outcome but good enough.

  6. DEC 12. This latest news gives me a warm fuzzy. Lenton going to jail is the BESTEST Christmas gift I will ever get!

    I am literally filled with joy!

    In fact, every DAY that Lenton is in jail will be like Christmas!

    Thanks Grand Jury!!!!

  7. March 2014:
    Jerry and Jacqueline Lenton were both charged with manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide in the death of Donald Thomas…Jacqueline Lenton was sentenced Wednesday for criminally negligent homicide, a misdemeanor…Jerry Lenton was sentenced for both criminally negligent homicide and a Class B felony charge of manslaughter. He…will be required to serve one year and one day in jail.
