8 thoughts on “2018 Dog Bite Fatality: Rottweilers Kill Grandmother, Injure Two Grandchildren, One Critically, in Robeson County

Please review our comment policy.

  1. If your “aggressive breed” dog kills someone. In the back of your mind, you knew it might happen. When we fostered our Pitbull that went berserk on our neighbors dog, we were pressured by the rescue to keep her and “train” it out of her. In the back of my mind I knew the dangers she posed. I’m not a breeder or dog behaviorist. Common sense tells you it’s only a matter of time with many of these dogs.

  2. People never learn! They get one potentially aggressive dog breed dog and then they get another and then they are breeding them or fostering them. Then this happens and the cycle continues.

  3. Four power breed dogs is way too many for one household. Not surprised at all sadly. Glad the kids are still alive, it could have been worse.

    • Their grandmother was torn to death in front of them and then the dogs turned on them injuring them so badly they needed to be airlifted. They will suffer from post traumatic stress syndrome on top of all the other physical injuries that will haunt them for life. All we know is that they are alive which isn’t much. They could be both dead but it is still about as bad as it gets.

  4. Fostering. Don’t get me started.

    Apparently, there’s a real shortage of people who are willing to do this. Because I saw a couple of young people, asking passersby if they would volunteer. This was yesterday afternoon on 4th Avenue in Tucson, Arizona.

    Due to the prevalence of pit bulls in this city, many of which get channeled into foster programs, I wouldn’t even consider this activity. Why not? Because I value my life and limbs.

    • It took long enough! But I’m glad to see at least something being done. People are held responsible for every other potential deadly thing they own which might harm someone else… but can often just get away with it when it comes to deadly dogs. I really don’t get it.

      Hoping those children have recovered as well as they can physically and that they can have good memories of their grandmother and not just dwell on the trauma of that horrific day.
