13 thoughts on “2013 Dog Bite Fatality: 'Nightmare' Pit Bull Kills Uvalde County Boy

  1. Little kids are being picked off in their neighborhoods. I'm sick of people suggesting that it is normal that dogs perceive young children as such a horrible threat that they must kill them. I'm sick of people suggesting that when they grew up, they never ventured outdoors without a parent accompanying them. I'm sick of people suggesting that it is ok to keep keep lethal things in their yards so that a child who ventures into the neighbor's yard is making a lethal mistake. I'm sick of people saying these owners are responsible, did nothing wrong, or did "everything they could do" by leaving their pits outside unattended behind a fence. Even pit bull proponents say a responsible pit bull owner should never leave their pit bull outside unattended.

  2. "He looked out the door and my baby was laying right there in front of his door. He shook his head "no" and he shut the door and not one time did he open it back up," said Lisa Gonzales.

    Horrible! Predictable!

  3. Another week another death by pit bull.

    The poor baby.

    Yet the nutters think a baby chasing their balloon into another yard is worthy of the death penalty. These folks are definitely wired differently then normal people.

    Lucy Muir said it perfectly-
    " I'm sick of people suggesting that it is normal that dogs perceive young children as such a horrible threat that they must kill them.

    Are the authorities ever going to "get it"?

  4. The 20 Year CDC Report covering 1979-1998 cited 330 DBRFs from all the breeds of doggiedom. He we are 14.25 years later, and Pit bulls and Rottweilers have already picked off 266 Americans!

    The are on pace to exceed the 330 figure in the next few years.

    The conclusions they came up with were either incompetent or lies. Not sure which is worse.

    *Disclaimer…You Can't Make This Stuff Up!

  5. Delise hasn't said it out loud yet that I know of, but I'm absolutely sure she's thinking: 'Yet another balloon that killed a child.'

  6. At this point I bet it is more likely they would outlaw balloons before anything is done about pit bulls.

    With the latest update here on the blog, how will the nutters cry of "animal aggression is different then human aggression" be handled?

    So imagine you own these dogs- yet you STILL keep an animal like this that has killed other pets and its own litter? Normal pet owners would not do that.

  7. So there was a fence with a large opening and the fence in the video was not a good fence for any dog. What a disgusting situation for little kids to grow up around. Pit Bulls mean more to these people that human lives !!!

  8. This hasn't been stated yet in news reports medic and it may never be. We're sure everyone in the small town of Sabinal knows. Notably, the address (block) of the attack was not listed in news reports either. This is rare in a fatal dog attack case. News reporters, if nothing else, usually capture a street sign on the block in their TV clips. This can quickly lead to Google Street Views and a search of county property records. Interestingly, no such tips have occurred in the Sabinal fatal dog mauling.

  9. So … by logical extrapolation: If I get an ALLIGATOR and keep it in my yard as a pet … I'm safe from prosecution the 1st time the ALLIGATOR attacks somebody because until the 1st attack, –it's not a "DANGEROUS ALLIGATOR" …
