  1. All I can do upon reading this is just sigh and shake my head. Praying that all those who hear of this story will have their eyes opened to the truth.

  2. I am constantly amazed that people force dangerous animals upon self and other people. I operate a church property that is being used for multiple daily meetings, and I interact with over a hundred people every day, and my acquaintances, friends and family are constantly amazed that this issue, of dangerous so-called “domesticated” dogs, is my constant, unceasing main topic of conversation.
    There are warning labels on five-gallon buckets and plastic wrap, but no warnings are provided/heeded as to the real risk of the severe threat of dangerous [i]un-tamed[/i] animals in our homes, in our streets, and in most all places of business. Only a very small percentage of the American population is in a position to be not at risk of instant, anytime, unpredictable severe or fatal mauling when on private property or out in public.

  3. I can’t imagine what this family was fighting about outside that resulted in one of them being arrested…but I have to wonder it there was an anti-pit family member who said, “I told you so.” and the pro-pit family members erupted in pro-pit fashion. Maybe some of the pro-pit people who expressing more grief about what would happen to the beloved pits and another family member lashed out at them for caring more for the dogs than the deceased. Maybe, the dogs had been showing aggression and one family member had been pushing for them to be put down and another one convinced the couple not to do that and here is the result.

    Concerning her death, I am just relieved that this did not happen to a neighbor, a child, or an elderly person and instead happened to the owner.

  4. So, her own mother is defending at least one pitbull. How could you, as a mother, lose a child in such a violent and unnecessary way, and then try to rationalize it? “The dog was old…” Okay, lots of dogs grow old and die of old age without killing anything. I bet her child didn’t still love the dogs as they were mauling her to death, unless she was as irrational as her mother.

  5. So, pitbulls kill their friend/family member, and even after the gory, bloody scene, those loved ones do not denounce the dogs? Must be because he (the dog) was old? Really? Or she fell…or sneezed…or it rained…or…
