Please review our comment policy.

  1. “Pit bulls are the No. 1 canine killers of other people’s pets and animals, killing more than 75% of those killed by a dog. In 2017, pit bulls killed 13,000 dogs, 5,000 cats and 20,000 horses and other farm animals.”
    Pitbulls: Facts and Figures
    By Attorney Kenneth M. Phillips, author of Dog Bite Law

    “In the 10 years from 2009 to 2018, pit bulls killed or maimed 3,569 people in the USA and Canada.” (Merritt Clifton, Dog Attack Deaths & Maimings, U.S. & Canada, 1982-2018 Log.) “They killed over 80% of all Americans who are killed by dogs.” (Colleen Lynn, 2015 U.S. Dog Bite Fatalities, Dogsbite)

  2. Same story with the pitbull killing people. no matter the constant pitbull killing they’re always saying it not dog fault it the owner or victim blaming oh my favorite one chihuahua are aggressive dog they bite the most people.let you never hear a chihuahua kill a person.

  3. Friends, note this is yet another mauling death in South Carolina after dear Kyleen Waltman’s savage mauling only 2 months ago.

    The loss of South Carolina tourism revenue should be brought up to the Governor and
    Lt. Governor. Gov. Henry McMaster and Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette. If South Carolina residents cannot rely on safety from dangerous dogs, how can tourists visit SC and feel safe?

    South Carolina tourism revenue generated $1.8 billion in state and local taxes in Feb 17, 2020 and supports one in every 10 jobs.

    Today I have emailed both officials regarding the potential loss of their tourism revenue as people around the world remember Kyleen Waltman’s savage mauling in SC only 2 months ago. I emphasized that SC’s Animal Control depts. and police depts. must regain control of dangerous dogs.

  4. Why didn’t they euthanize the dangerous things after they attacked the woman and her horse? Why does animal control always wait until they kill a human before they act! It’s insane! There’s a dangerous pit bull that stands on top of the storage shed in its yard and barks at the children who live in the apartments that have an adjoining fence. People have complained but the owner insist that it wouldn’t hurt a fly (just kill the neighborhood children) and wouldn’t be able to jump off their shed that sits against the fence! How does it get up or down without jumping? Animal control of course shooed the dog over the children! I personally don’t walk my new puppy in our neighborhood because of this dog but those kids don’t have the luxury to drive to a safe place where they can play!
