6 thoughts on “2015 Dog Bite Fatality: 63-Year Old Arkansas Man Killed by Three Pit Bulls

  1. The problem here sounds like a dog owner with an aggressive dog with a history of attacking, a person with a high local social ranking and connections and thus the secrecy

    Many of the locals are commenting about this and that lots more will come out, also that it was the step son's dog, and also the stepson was breeding the dog

    When do we realize that like every other business that already is, dog breeding needs to be regulated. There need to be rules and protections, and there need to be consumer protections and things like insurance requirements, just like all other businesses.

    Local people wrote "Dog also had puppies near where he was attacked."

    "Step sons dog… the son never liked him…"

  2. Dog breeding needs to be regulated? Hear-hear to that! And let's start with business licensing. I'd be willing to bet that 99.9% of these dog breeding operations are unlicensed. Which means they're not paying sales tax, income tax, use tax, or any other type of tax.

  3. How often do family dogs, that aren't pit bulls, kill their owners? I can think of one, the Keeshund mix in 2014, and the GSD in 2013, but I am pretty sure it's a pit 95% of the time.
    I guess it could be another breed, but what are the odds?
    Also- the breed seems to be hidden/not released when it's a PIT. I think there are several more deaths per year due to pits that weren't recorded properly (catahoula, anyone? neighbors say PIT), and a few others that went "unidentified".
    Wonder why…. Thats rhetorical.
