10 thoughts on “2016 Dog Bite Fatality: Visiting Child Killed by Babysitters' Pit Bull-Mix in Grayson County, Virginia

  1. Poor sweet little girl! My heart breaks for this child. When will the safety of a child be paramount in today's society?! I'm not a perfect parent but I say no to a lot of things because I have little ones to care for and they depend on me.
    No doubt the nutters will sweep this one under the rug as irresponsible Pitbull ownership. When in reality this happens to the most attentive babysitter who owns a pitbull. Kids and pitbulls… I want it to stop!!!

    • I agree!! There's children nearly daily now bring attacked by these dogs, the ones that are not killed are disfigured for life. It needs to stop!

  2. I looked up the Geneke Lyons case:

    " A Detroit man whose four pit bulls mauled a 4-year-old boy last year was given nearly a year of jail time with five years probation Thursday for the incident.

    Wayne County Circuit Judge James Callahan admitted he went below the sentencing guidelines because he believed Geneke Lyons was truly remorseful for the incident and he also had turned his life around from a previous prison term for dealing drugs."

    I find this appalling.
