  1. This is heart breaking. I was so praying for this child to make it. I'm wondering if even 1 pit bull nut job will shed a tear for this sweet little boy, or if the loss of his life will change anything with all those pit bull owners that lives around where this child lived?

  2. I don't think I am able to get over the shock about the state of barbarism we are in.

    Animal control, the authority system, was complicit in this crime.

    This Daniels should have been charged with a crime after the very first attack and monitored by the court system to prevent further crimes. But animal control not only allowed another attack to happen with that dog, they then have been allowing him to let these pit bulls run loose and terrorize people.

    The Authority figures of Callaway are just swimming in guilt

  3. Time of death sure is varying. "Tyler Jett was pronounced dead at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday after being attacked Tuesday, according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office."

  4. If more animal control agencies were sued for huge amounts, we'd see some real change. Because, in the end, it's the taxpayers who are liable for these suits. And they tend to get a bit irate about such things.

  5. The poor baby.

    Seeing the photo of the boys father posing with a pit bull…well it left me speechless.

  6. No matter how much I hate to see an injured person or child and how much I wish for victims and their families to maintain privacy and dignity….it is important for people to see photos of the aftermath.

    Tyler is not recognizable in the hospital bed. The way he is swollen, covered, restricted…he looks much younger than in his other pictures. I thought the injured person was an infant before I read more and looked at the other pics.

  7. Tyler was the 215th American killed by a pit bull since the incompetent CDC Fatality report covering 1979-1998.

    The two Government employees who chaired the report and allowed the pit crazies to craft it, need to be defending their jobs.

  8. I already wrote this on the dogsbitedecatural blog, but I'll put it here, too: that picture of Tyler all bruised and mangled just rips my heart out. It hurts just to look at him.

    It's awful that his family couldn't tell him goodbye, but maybe it's best that he didn't wake up. I can't imagine the pain.

    Daniels is a scumbag. God I hate cowards.

  9. These animals have killed and mutilated more children than all the gun nuts combined but nobody seems to care. Or does the Constitution guarantee the right keep and breed monsters?

  10. We need an Assault DOG ban more than anything!

    DubV you are right, definitely posh to have a "special" kind of pit bull in their mind.

  11. So the household of the perp is a breeder.

    Is there any information about why animal control was letting these people terrorize the community with their violent dogs? Multiple attacks and no consequences for them.

  12. A bright note in all this darkness. People did file formal complaints with animal control and demand that citations be issued.

    This is why it is so important for everyone to file formal complaints and make sure citations are issued for law breaking and aggressive behavior.

    It was thanks to the people who did what they needed to do and made those complaints that a history was built up so charges could be issued, and the owner of the dogs couldn't lie and get away with it.

    Never fail to file formal complaints and do a follow up to make sure there were citations on record.

  13. Edward Daniels is in jail..GOOD! All of the local city council members across the country who still don't GET IT and continue to allow domestic ownership of these savage breeds…ALSO have the blood of these poor victims on their hands!
