Please review our comment policy.

  1. I hope that this man's family is filing a lawsuit against the dog owner.

  2. The penalty should be ALL dogs on the property euthanized, banned from dog ownership for life, strict liability, and trial for at the very least negligent homicide.

  3. Montgomery County, Ohio population – 533,116
    ‌Dayton – population 141,003
    I know San Diego County, CA has had a lot of fatalities, but it has a population of over 3 million.
    I wonder if Dayton has the highest pit bull fatality rate per capita. Just imagine how many pit bull attacks must be happening on a regular basis there.

  4. In the article I read, one of the "authorities" was quoted, "This isn't something that ordinarily happens."

    At the end of the article was a list of these things that 'don't ordinarily happen'! Ohio just sucks as far as pits. They got screwed with that law.

  5. Unreal, and so unbelievable sad. Everytime I read a DBRF, I think "how the HELL can anyone justify having a frickin' pit bull?!" They are literally bred to kill, and that's it. Hundreds of years of genetic manipulation to get the most violent, aggressive, destructive genes bred INTO these things. They are disgusting killing machines, and innocent Mr. Brown is the latest victim of one. My thoughts are with his family.

  6. I don't understand why no one has figured out who the owners are and named them! The owner of the house was in a nursing home, so SOMEONE was renting, who is it and when are they going to jail???!

  7. Is it just me, or does that seized pit bull look like a mountain lion? What's sad is that mountain lions have killed approximately 24 humans in North America since about 1890. From 2005 to 2016, pit bulls killed 254 Americans. The mountain lion stats are a rough estimate. The pit stats are solid fact. So, I would trust a mountain lion over a "nanny dog" any day of the week.

  8. Why is that so often these monsters are taken away and, "Studied?" "Studied," for what? And, why all the nonsense about, "They need to be contained, or on a leash?" They need to not exist because they are forever getting loose OR killing within their own homes! It is just collective INSANITY to keep doing and saying the same things over and over and over and still the maulings and murders continue. I keep asking myself besides talking about this what can actually be DONE? I have even been looking to find a safe city, and yet, I just saw that an area that is supposed to be safe i.e listed on this site as being a city that bans pit bulls which is Harper Woods, MI which, yes, DOES NOT allow pit bulls per, "Sec. 4-28 of it's city ordinances has an animal placement organization,"GPAAS," Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society 20048 Harper Ave., Harper Woods, MI 48205 313 884-1551, that is offering a number of pit bulls for adoption. So, IF they are banned in Harper Woods, how is the organization in Harper Woods, able to advertise pit bulls for placement? So, IF a city has a ban are they, in fact, enforced? We just REALLY need a national ban as in other countries. Our military bases already have them in place…wish that I could move near one and find a way to get permission to walk on their grounds since I don't feel save any place else these days!!!
