16 thoughts on “2012 Dog Bite Fatality: Jefferson County Woman Attacked by Own Pit Bulls Dies

  1. I'll be looking forward to more information, but it's getting really tedious that this kind of thing isn't enough to immediately put the surviving pit bull down. You can examine the brain of a dead undog to see whether it had rabies, there is really no reason to keep it alive.

    Never mind this husband who immediately started searching for some reason why it wasn't the genetically engineered monsters that killed his wife. Wonder what other health issues would have spontaneously severed an artery, other than the mental health ones that made them get pit bulls?

  2. Aw, come on, Sweetie Pie. The dog must be kept alive at all costs. And darn those taxpayers. Because they're just footing the bill.

    If the surviving mutant was quickly put down, that would upset the animal rights wack-jobs. And we wouldn't that, now would we?

  3. Now now folks you are so harsh.

    Her "medical condition" was spontaneous esxanguination- something one can expect when they keep pit bulls and can be guaranteed when one keeps pit bulls that have already bitten people in the past…..

    For those not familiar with that condition-

    "Exsanguination (also known colloquially as bleeding out) is the fatal process of hypovolemia (blood loss), to a degree sufficient to cause death. One does not have to lose literally all of one's blood to cause death. Depending upon the age, health, and fitness level of the individual, people can die from losing half or two-thirds of their blood; a loss of roughly one-third of the blood volume is considered very serious- even a single deep cut can warrant suturing and hospitalization, especially if trauma, a vein or artery, or another co-morbidity is involved. It is most commonly known as "bleeding to death". The word itself originated from Latin: ex ("out of") and sanguis ("blood").

  4. To Putme Incharge, all I can say is that I greatly respect your diagnosis. Spontaneous exsanguination caused by the choice to own shit bulls. Is this maybe the newest thing for seriously disturbed people after suicide by cop has gone out of fashion?

  5. Well the latest update to this blog really amazed me.

    Here I thought the dogs had previously bitten other people in the past.

    Silly me, they had attacked the victim- umm I mean volunteer- previously.

    If this is not "lion tamer complex" I don't know what is.

  6. Quoth the victim's mother: "[W]hen you get to a certain age what are you gonna do?"

    Well, Mom, you raise loud and screaming bloody hell, that's what you do. I mean, come on. You're the mother. You never, ever stop being concerned for your child's safety. Ever.

  7. "Glover blamed the deadly attack on a storm that blew in Friday night."

    I knew there had to be a good reason for someones pets to kill them. Now that the neighbor has explained it I feel much better.
    However, I am now going to live in fear of my Collie and Pomeranians every time a storm blows through…..

    Why is it I think the other dog is going to get to go back to its owner or to some other "rescuer"?

  8. Yea, the storm, you have to be careful when those blow through! When that happens at our house the Border Collie gets so scared she jumps in bed with us and we're immediately at risk of having her slobber on our pillows.

    If we believed everything pit bull owners said about dog behavior, no one would own any dog.
