    • No way! It had to be those deadly spaniels! Or those ferocious retrievers!

    • Okay, y’all. No reason to speculate. We all know no breed of dog is more dangerous than another. It’s how they are raised.

    • Must have been Dachshunds. They are one of the most dangerous breeds with their powerful jaws and incredibly long legs.

  1. Seriously, my guess is Catahoula Pit Bull cross. They’re bred around here as pig hunting dogs. Good pig hunters. Terrible pets.

    Relative’s dogs seem to be especially dangerous lately.

  2. So, the attacking dogs are “Cattle dog” mixed breed or maybe Catahoula Hound mixes. When a pit bull is mixed with another breed, the other breed is always used for the description, so as not to say “pit bull” mix. Would love to see a picture of these dogs…..

  3. What is taking a so long to get the photos of these livestock dogs? Can’t wait to see what a cattle dog is.

  4. Ban owners from any dog contact or ownership for life.

    No way of knowing if these attacks are negligent or intentional.

  5. My question is, why on Earth would an official want to deceive the public when it comes to the breed of a dog? It just doesn’t make sense if you have the best interest of the people you serve in mind.

    • Because this official — and many others — has been inducted into the Cult of No-Kill. Which means that you must not kill a dog, no matter how dangerous it may be.

      To paraphrase one of the leading vectors in the spread of No-Kill, the Best Friends Animal Society, we must Save Them All.

  6. Oh, I see. Bulls are cattle so therefore bull mastiffs and pit bulls are cattle dogs.

  7. “Cattle dogs?” Is that like calling pit bulls “nanny dogs?” I’m pretty sure most farmers don’t want murderous pit bulls around their cattle.

  8. “The dogs were not pit bulls. They were indentation male bovine dogs. Totally different.”
