Please review our comment policy.

  1. I know this sounds callus but a while back I stopped feeling bad for adult owners of pit bulls who are attacked and killed by their own dogs. I just can't do it anymore. I don't even fell bad for their grieving relatives.

  2. Glad it was the adult owner and not the 9 yr old neighbor. That poor kid will have those memories the rest of his life.

  3. Five dogs is too damn many for anyone to handle, the limit should be two and unless they get an (expensive) breeders license the dogs should be sterilized. There are just too damn many dogs everywhere and particularly pit bulls.

  4. "a while back I stopped feeling bad for adult owners of pit bulls" … It is tough because we read about them so frequently in maulings. However, in this case, it sounds like this man needed help more than anything. Pit bull dog aggression is very serious. We don't know much about his other dogs either or how he obtained any of them.

    As for "judging his life" no one in comments has done this. They've simply reflected that they are tired of feeling sorry for owners of these dogs when their dogs attack them. Far too often, it is the innocent child attacked while the owner "can't stop his dog."
